Lieutenant Governor of Kentucky
Lawsuit against Matt Bevin
It was announced in late May 2019 that, according to Hampton, there was corruption and “dark forces” in Governor Bevin's administration following the dismissal of one of the former's staff members. Hampton's aide was soon fired around two weeks later. She later filed a lawsuit against Bevin after he fired all of her staff. It was also announced that Bevin had snubbed Hampton from his re-election ticket, picking state senator Ralph Alvarado as his running mate instead; among Hampton's fired staff, one aide alleged the establishment RINO Mitch McConnell to have been behind the firings. Senator Rand Paul asserted on the matter that Hampton “deserves respect” and that he was a “big fan” of her.
