10 Days, 10 Ways Matt Bevin Lied to Kentucky: His Position On Issues 
FRANKFORT, KY -- Matt Bevin has spent his campaign proving exactly why Republicans called him an 'East Coast Con Man' and a 'Pathological Liar.' That's why each day for 10 days, the Kentucky Democratic Party is highlighting the top 10 reasons why Kentuckians cannot trust Bevin to be governor. 
Today's reason: Bevin Lies About His Position On Critical Issues
In endorsing Jack Conway today, the Lexington Herald-Leader stated that Bevin "has backtracked on positions he's taken on — to name a few — health care, early-childhood education and public-private infrastructure partnerships." 
"Matt Bevin has spent his campaign lying to Kentuckians and proving why even Republicans called him the 'East Coast Con Man,'" said David Bergstein of the Kentucky Democratic Party. "From healthcare to early childhood education, Bevin has stubbornly refused to come clean about where he stands on critical issues that will impact the lives of every Kentuckian. It's all just more proof why Kentuckians do not trust a 'Pathological Liar' like Bevin to be governor."  
See for yourself: 
Lexington Herald-Leader, Youngman: “The Mysterious Matt Bevin.“ "On issue after issue, Bevin is reversing himself and blaming the media for mistaking straight-aways for u-turns…Bevin has been all over the map on health care, early childhood education, public-private partnerships for infrastructure, and his rocky past with Mitch McConnell. And that's not even a comprehensive list.” [The Lexington Herald-Leader, 8/4/15]
Northern Kentucky Tribune, Straub: Bevin "has flip-flopped more often than a smallmouth bass on the bottom of a Crestliner." [Northern Kentucky Tribune, 8/8/15]
Herald-Leader, Youngman: “Bevin’s Campaign Has Slalomed Back and Forth on Issues Ranging from Health Care to Early Childhood Education.” "While Bevin's campaign has slalomed back and forth on issues ranging from health care to early childhood education, he has consistently shown during in his two years in the political arena that he is not a team player.” [The Lexington Herald-Leader, 10/20/15]
WDRB, Dyche: Bevin “Wildly inconsistent,” “absolutely unfettered by [his] past statements.” [WDRB, 8/6/15]
Courier-Journal, Gerth: "The ads that show him flip-flopping on various issues are true. That’s actually Bevin in those ads -- saying one thing, then denying he ever said it." [The Courier-Journal, 10/24/15]
