Bevin didn’t disclose positions, a possible ethics violation

Republican nominee for governor Matt Bevin did not disclose his positions with two companies on his financial disclosure statement, a possible violation of state ethics laws.

Bevin is the president of Bevin Bros. Manufacturing in Connecticut and has a position with Academic Merit in Maine, according to records filed with the Secretary of State’s offices in those two states. He did not report either on his state disclosure.

Bevin did disclose his position as sole owner of Integrity Holdings, the company that owns Bevin Bros. and Academic Merit. Bevin’s campaign manager, Ben Hartman, said that fulfilled his disclosure requirements.

Executive Branch Ethics Commission interim executive director Kathryn Gabhart said she believes the commission would find Bevin should disclose all of his positions with every business.

Bevin has often spoken publicly of his association with the companies.
