Churchill Downs' PAC contribution to conservative group draws ire of top Ky. House Democrat

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Friday, June 27, 2014 7:39 AM EDT

A new political action committee working to elect conservatives to the Kentucky legislature has received a $100,000 contribution from Churchill Downs.

The Courier-Journal reports that the Louisville racing company won't confirm the purpose of its contribution to the Next Generation Leadership Fund, but didn't dispute that the money would be used to try to oust Democrats from the House.

Democratic House Speaker Greg Stumbo says the contribution could come back to haunt Churchill.

The company has been seeking legislation for years that would allow casino-style gambling in Kentucky. Stumbo says Democrats have been most supportive of Churchill's efforts to build a casino in Louisville.

Stumbo says the contribution will make it extremely difficult for the House to move forward on the expanded gambling issue.
