C. ED MASSEY
HOW DID ED MASSEY GET IN OFFICE?
Massey is scared of the voters, and uses underhanded methods to secure his seat in power.
Files lawsuit against Independent challenger 2 weeks before election.
PRO- HILLARY CLINTON
Ed Massey donated to Hillary's campaign.
PRO-TAXPAYER FUNDED ABORTION
BETRAYAL TO HIS OATH OF OFFICE, TO UPHOLD THE CONSTITUTION
Regular Session 2020:
Ed Massey voted in favor of a $35 million dollar forgivable loan to EMW Abortion clinic, and Univeristy of Louisville's abortionist training program.
ANTI-ACCOUNTABLITY/PRO- GOVERNMENT OVERREACH
Governor Beshear's biggest backer: Anti-Impeachment
Regular Session 2021:
While at least 80,000 Kentuckians were signing petitions to impeach a handful of officers, most notably, Gov. Beshear, Massey co-sponsored House Bill 378, with Adam Koenig.
The law is clear that a citizen filing for impeachment is responsible for the cost if the effort is unsuccesful.
HB 378 would take away the right of citizens to file impeachment papers. Massey's bill would require that the citizens seek permission from multiple elected officials in order to start proceedings.
PARENTS AND TAXPAYERS DO NOT MATTER TO ED MASSEY
2021 REGULAR SESSION:
Ed Massey voted NO on HB 563.
This bill allowed parents the opportunity to enroll their child in a public school different than the one where they reside.
Remember, Ed Massey voted NO.
2021 Session - House Bill 561 – Ed Massey sponsored the bill to raise the gas tax .34 per gallon, automatically adjustable by up to 10% each year based on the National Highway Construction Cost Index 2.0. The bill included a $150.00/year tax for owners of electric and hybrid vehicles, adjustable based on the average cost of a gallon of gasoline over the past year. The bill also included $35 to $40/year tax for gasoline or diesel vehicles that get greater than 30mpg.
Also, fees at the county clerk’s offices would have increased by 100% to 500%. Most of the clerks’ offices already declare a yearly surplus and return it to the state’s general fund for the legislature to spend. This sharp increase in fees would have increased the amount of money being fed into the general fund. This would have been an insidious “back door tax.”

2022 Session - House Bill 475 – Ed Massey voted YES to allow local governments levy new types of taxes. This bill would provide cities, counties, and municipalities with a clean slate to invent new taxes and raise existing taxes (such as sales taxes) without a sunset provision and without the oversight of the legislature. The bill passed the House 02/23/2022. It would amend Section 181 of the Constitution of Kentucky to permit the General Assembly to authorize a county, city, town, or municipal corporation to assess and collect local taxes and fees that are not otherwise in conflict with the Constitution.

2022 – House Bill 10 – Rep Massey now seeks to keep the public in the dark regarding the pre-filing of bills. He has co-sponsored House Bill 10, which keeps you from knowing what bills will be filed in the upcoming legislative session. As it is now, you can read proposed bills in advance of upcoming sessions. The Kentucky legislative sessions are very short, alternating 30-day sessions one year and 60 days the next year. Without advance notice, clearly there is insufficient time for working individuals to study and analyze bills, especially when legislators often write bills in such a convoluted manner.
We The People are not entitled to transparency and accountability, or sufficient time to study and share with others the
