FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — A law professor at Northern Kentucky University has been chosen to fill a long-vacant seat on the Legislative Ethics Commission.
The Lexington Herald-Leader (http://bit.ly/1m7GU2L) reports House Speaker Greg Stumbo and Senate President Robert Stivers announced on Monday that Henry Stephens would fill the seat that has been open for two years. Stephens teaches at NKU's Salmon P. Chase College of Law.
The commission, which has nine members, was criticized recently for not having a majority of members present to hear allegations that a former lawmaker sexual harassed workers.
Stumbo, a Democrat, and Stivers, a Republican, jointly made the appointment. They each appoint four others to the panel.
