FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Steve Robertson sent a letter to Auditor Crit Luallen Monday, asking her to check whether Beshear reported his personal use of official planes. If not, Robertson asked that Luallen notify the IRS.
The Democratic Party reimbursed the state for Beshear's use of official aircraft, including for a family outing to the NCAA Final Four basketball tournament last year in Texas.
Robertson said that's a fringe benefit that the IRS should know about.
Robertson suggested the request is reasonable considering Luallen's office had previously notified the IRS about Agriculture Commissioner Richie Farmer's personal use of a state-assigned automobile.
Beshear aides had no immediate comment.
