LRC Employee Fired

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- A Legislative Research Commission employee has been fired after appearing in a video for Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes.

Charles Booker said that he was terminated Monday for violating a policy that prohibits LRC employees from engaging in partisan political activities.

LRC acting Director Marcia Seiler confirmed that Booker no longer is employed by the agency, but declined to discuss the issue further.

Booker, who lives in Louisville, had worked for the agency for a little more than a year as an analyst for the Government Contract Review Committee at a salary of $51,000 annually.

Booker appears briefly in the video, which mostly features his wife, Tanesha Booker.
