LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – Kentucky Republican Gov. Matt Bevin has posted a video showing himself throwing smoke bombs and shooting grenade launchers.
Bevin posted the video Sunday on Twitter, a day after President Donald Trump visited the state.
In the video, Bevin says when he was elected, he talked about blowing things up like red tape, corruption, and “pay-to-play and inside deals.” He says in the tweet that “from the beginning, we’ve made it clear … We won’t stand for the way things have ‘always been done.'”
The Courier-Journal reports the video was filmed at the Kentucky State Penitentiary’s gun range in Eddyville.
Bevin is running for re-election next year. Kentucky Democratic Attorney General Andy Beshear also is a gubernatorial candidate.
Beshear spokesman Brad Bowman says Bevin should “refund every tax dollar used to make this video.”
