State Official to Decide on Releasing Beshear Ethics Report

It will be up to a state official to decide whether to release a confidential report detailing an ethical investigation of Steve Beshear's former law firm.

Beshear is challenging Governor Ernie Fletcher in next month's election.

Franklin County Circuit Judge Thomas Wingate issued a decision saying a ten-year-old report on Beshear's former firm is a private document protected by attorney-client privilege.

The decision on whether to release the report falls to Julie McPeak, executive director of the State Office of Insurance.
