New Conway ad attacks Bevin over his taxes

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Democratic nominee for governor Jack Conway has aired his first attack ad of the 2015 election.

The ad began airing Tuesday on Kentucky cable and satellite markets across the state. It shows a clip of Republican nominee Matt Bevin saying he does not have a problem paying his taxes followed by a list of all the tax problems Bevin has had. The list includes failure to pay individual taxes along with taxes associated with the various companies he owns.

The ad ends with the line "you can’t trust him."

Republican U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell used some of the same accusations against Bevin during the 2014 Senate primary. Bevin has acknowledged his previous issues with taxes but has said those problems were caused by others and said he paid what he owed once he learned of the debt.
