Bevin apologizes in social media for Friday's remarks about teachers

Teachers, parents disgusted with Bevin's sexual assault comments

"I guarantee you somewhere today, a child was physically harmed or ingested poison because they were left alone because a single parent didn't have any money to take care of them".

Following widespread outrage over those remarks, Bevin has issued an apology, stating it wasn't his intent to hurt anyone.

Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear posted a video on Twitter saying the hearing will be in Franklin Circuit Court Thursday.

He also said he apologized to those who "have been hurt by the things that were said.it was not my intent".

"They are all going to get calls from me saying you asked and I delivered", he said. "Many people have been confused or hurt, or just misunderstand what I was trying to communicate". Lawmakers overrode Bevin's veto Friday, April 13, 2018.

During a radio interview with 840 WHAS Radio on Tuesday, Bevin criticized the Kentucky Education Association and called the group's leadership "absolute frauds".

On Saturday, the Kentucky House of Representatives condemned Bevin in two separate resolutions over his remarks.

Last Friday, he told reporters that these striking teachers were responsible for "hundreds of thousands" of children being left home alone and all the dangers they then face. However, officials from both Erlanger-Elsemere and Bellevue said Bevin's proposed education cuts - not the one-day absence of teachers - would "severely reduce" services that provide forms of childcare before and after school, including kindergarten, preschool and tutoring. Could have said it better.

"We can't be so consumed with the financial that we fail to appreciate the ripple effect of the real people that are involved", Bevin said on Sunday.

"The disgusting comments by Gov. Bevin insinuating that a peaceful protest by teachers would lead to sexual assault are reprehensible". The problem is that we're offended by what Bevin does, which is make life worse for the people who need government's help the most.

"Governor Bevin claims there was a misunderstanding, but the people of Kentucky heard loud and clear what he said and today's video shows he still does not comprehend why so many were understandably upset", Adkins said in a statement.

Kentucky legislators voted on Friday to override Bevin's veto of a two-year state budget that increased education funding through a $480 million tax increase.

Bevin didn't totally back down in his video apology.

Agreed, Bevin. Communicating your thoughts clearly is your responsibility, especially as a public figure. "His insults of teachers over the a year ago have been beneath the decorum of any respectable elected official".
