The following statement is from the Office of Governor Ernie Fletcher in light of today’s action by Attorney General Greg Stumbo:

“This has been a politically motivated, media-driven investigation from the start.

“As Governor Fletcher has said repeatedly, his conscience is clear.  He has done nothing wrong.

“We are evaluating the charges and, likewise, we are studying our recourse of action in the wake of this malicious prosecution.

“Because of the politicization of this entire investigation, we are filing a motion at this time to disqualify Greg Stumbo and his entire office from further participation in this matter.”
