Kentucky assistant AG retires after reprimand for talking to reporter

A longtime assistant attorney general says she has retired after getting reprimanded for talking to a journalist without permission.
    
Amye Bensenhaver told Kentucky Today that she made her decision to retire on Wednesday "under considerable duress" after being reprimanded in July.
    
Attorney General Andy Beshear’s spokesman, Terry Sebastian, said the communications policy is long-standing and applies to everyone who works in the office. He said Bensenhaver has been a valued member of the office who was welcome to stay.
    
Bensenhaver is widely respected as an authority on open records and open meetings laws in Kentucky. She has written about 2,000 open records and open meetings opinions in the last 25 years.
