Kentucky committee to discuss results of 13th District recount


A Kentucky House Committee will meet Friday to discuss the results of last weekend’s recount of the 13th House District race.

The recount of the race between State Rep. Jim Glenn and D.J. Johnson ended in a tie.

Glenn, a Democrat, originally won the race by one vote.

Meanwhile, Glenn’s lawyer, Anna Whites, wrote a letter to Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear – asking him to investigate potential election law violations.

She claimed a vote was improperly altered as a result of interference by Johnson and his lawyers.

Johnson, a Republican, said that claim is false.

Eyewitness News will be in Frankfort Friday to cover the meeting.
