Jenean Hampton Responds to Jack Conway’s “Female Dog” Comment

Today, GOP Lt. Governor nominee Jenean Hampton issued her response to Jack Conway’s outrageous answer to a question about protecting women in the workplace during Tuesday's debate. When asked by Lexington Herald Leader reporter Sam Youngman “What have you done to make the state’s capitol a safer workplace for women and what more needs to be done?” Conway dodged the question and instead cited owning a “female dog," comparing women to dogs. 

“As a woman, I find Jack Conway's comments at Tuesday's debate reprehensible. His running mate has a sealed deposition relating to sexual harassment claims in the state legislature that had to be settled in court, and Jack Conway's response is that he understands how to make women safer because he has a female dog. Jack Conway is not fit to lead Kentucky,” said Jenean Hampton.
