Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron filed a motion to block Gov. Beshear’s executive orders where he argued that the orders exceed Beshear’s authority as governor, violate the state Constitution and are unequally applied among Kentucky residents. Cameron said “this unchecked, totalitarian use of emergency authority violates the ‘inherent and inalienable rights’ of the people. Its very nature, antithetical to democratic ideals, and is contrary to the customs and maxims of a free people.” An angry Beshear responded in a Tweet “With no rules, there is no chance of getting kids back to school, we will lose over $10 billion in our economy and many Kentuckians will die. I hope everyone understands how scary and reckless this is.”  Cameron’s motion was filed in Boone County Circuit Court where he was successful with a similar challenge.
