Kentucky attorney general takes aim at lawyer for Breonna Taylor’s family: ‘This is the Ben Crump model’

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron (R) on Tuesday criticized civil rights lawyer Ben Crump for citing allegations of bias as reasoning for a special prosecutor to reopen the case surrounding Breonna Taylor’s death, with Cameron saying it was “irresponsible” for Crump “to push such narratives, such falsehoods.”
