Civil Suit Filed Against State Representative

ben waide 300MADISONVILLE, Ky. (12/31/13) — State Rep. Ben Waide said he is optimistic that the truth will be revealed about his personal business dealings with his partners at Liberty Rehabilitation that are the subjects of a civil lawsuit filed against him Dec. 30.

The complaint filed by Lawrence Holmes and Jason Myers alleges that Waide mishandled a Liberty Rehabilitation credit card by charging gasoline for trips to and from state legislative meetings and for personal use during a trip to St. Louis.

“I'm very disappointed with the misinformation that is out there,” Waide told SurfKY News Tuesday. “There is a lot of misinformation. I look forward to us getting all the information out.”

Waide said the complaint stems from an unfortunate business dispute and that he is confident in the management of Liberty Rehabilitation.

“I'm very confident in the professional accounting supervision,” he said. “It has been one of integrity in place for seven years.”

According to a story by SurfKY News' media partner WEHT 25, Waide's business partners are represented by attorney John Whitfield.

Waide is being represented by attorney Todd P'Pool, who was out of town Tuesday.

Waide told News 25 that the business dispute “seems to be used by the lawyers as a political attack.”

Waide, a Republican, filed his candidacy for the office of Hopkins County Judge Executive Dec. 12 at the Hopkins County Clerk's office.
