Hopkins state representative indicted

Associated Press

FRANKFORT - A state representative was indicted on two counts of violating state campaign finance laws for accepting $10,000 from a company and illegally reimbursing himself $6,000 from his campaign account, the state attorney general announced Tuesday.

Forest "Ben" Waide, 51, of Hopkins County was accused of accepting $10,000 in campaign contributions from Liberty Rehabilitation, where he is a partner. State law bars candidates from knowingly accepting contributions from corporations.

Waide is also charged with reimbursing himself $6,000 from his campaign account for expenses he did not incur, Democratic Attorney General Jack Conway said. Waide, a Republican, is not running for re-election.
