Bevin Asks Judge To Intervene In Contract Investigation

KY_Governors_Mansion

A former state employee is refusing to comply with Republican Gov. Matt Bevin's investigation into a no-bid contract awarded by his Democratic predecessor.

Bevin is investigating whether the $3 million contract former Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear awarded to SAS Institute complied with state procurement laws.

Frank Lassiter is a former state worker who was a consultant for SAS at the time, and his wife Mary was the executive cabinet secretary for Beshear.

Beshear awarded the no-bid contract on his last day in office.

Thursday, Bevin asked a judge to force Lassiter to comply with a subpoena for documents and testimony. Lassiter's attorney said they would fight the subpoena in court.
