LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- On Wednesday, the Grimes Campaign dismissed a report it was getting an illegal family discount for the use of the bus from a company owned by Grimes' father.

The Grimes Campaign released quotes from several other bus companies showing the rate it is paying is well within market rates, but now, one of the companies Grimes is using in her defense is saying the $456-a-day rate grimes is paying "a sweetheart deal."

Transportation companies contacted by WHAS11 said they would charge a daily rate two to three times what Grimes is paying her father's company.
