On The Subject Of Kentucky Politics, Monroe County Man Sentenced To Home Confinement For Vote Buying.

Man sentenced in Monroe vote-buying scheme

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) -- A south-central Kentucky man who admitted conspiring to pay for votes in the 2006 general election in Monroe County has been sentenced to probation with six months on home confinement and fined $2,000.

The U.S. attorney's office says 53-year-old Gary M. Bartley of Tompkinsville admitted in February that he conspired with others between October and November 2006 to buy votes in the general election in Monroe County. Prosecutors said Friday that the scheme involved candidates that included the office of county judge-executive.

Former Judge-Executive Wilbur P. Graves was convicted in March of conspiring to buy votes during the same election to re-elect himself and is scheduled to be sentenced July 21 in Bowling Green.
