AROUND KENTUCKY... Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron joined 20 other Republican attorneys general Wednesday in calling for the Senate to reject the articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump. "This body should never permit impeachment proceedings to proceed where they are permeated with the clearly partisan objective of energizing a political party’s base to, ultimately, influence a presidential election," the 14-page letter says. "Such a raw political and unconstitutional use of the impeachment power should not be countenanced by the Senate." The president's removal trial began in the Senate this week with a marathon debate on the rules and general procedures. --Courier-Journal * * * A milder version of a bill requiring people to show photo identification before they are allowed to vote passed a Senate Committee Wednesday as Kentucky Republicans attempt to push through stricter voting standards before the 2020 elections. The revision makes three changes aimed at addressing concerns that Senate Bill 2 would make it more difficult for people to vote. --Lexington Herald-Leader * * * One person was shot in an incident Thursday morning involving a Radcliff Police Department officer on Navaho Court, according to Kentucky State Police.
