Three former grand jurors in the Breonna Taylor case are among the “concerned Kentucky citizens” petitioning to have the Kentucky Legislature impeach state Attorney General Daniel Cameron.
According to CNN, one of the attorneys representing the group of petitioners, Kevin Glogower, said they filed a petition seeking the impeachment of Cameron, charging him with “breach of public trust and failure to comply with duties for misrepresenting to the nation the findings of the Grand Jury” and “abuse of office and breach of duties of professional responsibility and ethics.”
Both impeachment charges are related to the lack of charges filed against the Louisville Metropolitan Police Department officers implicated in Breonna Taylor’s death.
In a press release, Glogower said, “These are randomly selected citizens who were compelled to sit on a grand jury and were terribly misused by the most powerful law enforcement official in Kentucky.”
Their petition is also calling to charge Cameron with incitement of insurrection for the US Capitol’s riots.
The petition lists Cameron’s involvement with the National Association of Republican Attorneys General or RAGA as its rationale for their charge of incitement.
A non-profit affiliated with RAGA called the “Rule of Law Defense Fund” set up robocalls in the days leading up to the riots that urged their supporters to march on the Capitol on January 6th.
