LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- A for-profit college is asking its employees to support the challenger in the Kentucky attorney general’s race, saying that the incumbent is unfairly targeting such schools for investigation.
Leaders at Sullivan University, which has its main campus in Louisville, asked employees during an Aug. 3 training session to contribute $25 each to Todd P’Pool, according to The Courier-Journal and the Lexington Herald-Leader. In addition, Chancellor A.R. Sullivan was helping host a fundraiser this week for P’Pool.
Grover Potts, Jr., an attorney for Sullivan, said for-profit college officials believe Attorney General Jack Conway has unfairly targeted the schools in an investigation involving possible violations of state consumer laws.
Potts confirmed that contributions were sought from employees, but said no one was coerced and no laws were broken.
