A former Democrat state legislator and Cabinet Secretary from Kentucky has now been charged with first-degree rape.

As The Daily Caller reports:


John Tilley, Kentucky’s one-time Justice and Public Safety Cabinet Secretary and former state legislator, turned himself in Monday on a first-degree rape charge, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader.

Tilley is accused of having sex on April 15 with a woman who was too intoxicated to consent, the newspaper reported. This is alleged to have occurred at a hotel in downtown Lexington, Kentucky, according to Kentucky CBS affiliate WKYT.

Tilley was a Democratic member of the State House representing part of southeastern Kentucky from 2007 to 2015. Then-Republican Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin appointed him to run the state’s Justice and Public Safety Cabinet, according to the Herald-Leader.

“Mr. Tilley maintains his innocence of any criminal wrongdoing and has fully cooperated in the investigation. He respects the court process and will have no further comment at this time,” his lawyers Christopher Spedding and Steve Schroering stated Monday, the Herald-Leader reported. “He respects the court process and will have no further comment at this time.”

Tilley could be sentenced to over 10 years in prison if convicted in a court of law.

THE BIGGEST MISTAKE IS THIS, NO MATTER WHAT DEMOCRATS DO, THEY NEVER GET FIRED, THEY JUST MOVE THEM ALONG TO A NEW POSITION. TERM LIMITS ARE NEEDED.

if the law can put this rapist in jail, why can’t the law put bubba clinton in jail for the rape of Broadrick in Arkansas when he was governor?
