BREAKING: Another Frankfort Scandal Brewing

From WHAS-TV's Mark Hebert:

"WHAS-11 News has learned that Kentucky’s #2 Nursing Home Regulator has been fired, because of an improper relationship with a nursing home operator. The FBI and State Attorney General are now investigating allegations that Moses Young lives, perhaps rent free, in a house owned by a nursing home owner and may have influenced state investigations of the facility.

Moses Young was a high ranking official in the State Inspector General’s office. The Assistant Director of Nursing Home Regulation, he has now been fired. And now, criminal investigators are trying to figure out if Young was on-the-take and jeopardizing the care and safety of some of Kentucky’s most vulnerable citizens. The Garrard convalescent Home in Northern Kentucky has been the target of 23 complaints since 2004, alleging everything from abuse and neglect of residents to a bedbug problem. But according to state records, every one of those complaints has been unsubstantiated, and dismissed by state regulators."
