   FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- A state grand jury has indicted Republican state Rep. Ben Waide on two counts of violating state campaign finance laws.
 
   Democratic Attorney General Jack Conway said in a news release Waide accepted $10,000 in campaign contributions from Liberty Rehabilitation, where Waide is a partner. State law bars candidates from knowingly accepting contributions from corporations. Conway also said Waide reimbursed himself $6,000 from his campaign account for expenses that he did not incur.
 
   Waide did not immediately return messages seeking comment Tuesday.
 
   Waide lives in Madisonville and represents the 10th District, which includes portions of Hopkins County in western Kentucky. He is not running for re-election.
 
   His first court appearance is scheduled for Aug. 29 at 9 a.m.
