FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Legislative leaders want to meet to choose an interim replacement for Bobby Sherman, the former director of the Legislative Research Commission who resigned last week.
House Speaker Greg Stumbo said Friday that legislative leaders need to also lay the groundwork for a search for a permanent replacement.
Sherman quit abruptly last Friday, saying in a resignation letter that he had been considering doing so for a long while. He created a dustup on Sunday when he returned to his Capitol office to clean out his desk and in doing so shredded some documents.
Now, state police have decided to investigate the shredding to see if any laws were broken.
The meeting has been called for 1:30 p.m. EDT next Wednesday in Capitol Annex Room 125.
