Historic clashes with Kentucky gay rights organizations over for Senate President Williams as he leaves the SenateOct 31st, 2012 | By News Tips: email@example.com | Category: Kentucky Guardian News, Kentucky Political News
Gay rights organizations in Kentucky can breathe a sigh of relief as Senate President David L. Williams (R) leaves office, months after Williams announced that he and his wife are divorcing. Williams was expected to be opposed as President of the Senate during the 2013 legislative session. Some have described this as one of the biggest shakeups in Kentucky government since John “Eck” Rose (D) left office as President Pro Tempore for more than a decade and then president of the Kentucky Senate after Kentucky’s constitutional amendment ousting the Lt. Governor as the Senate President.
