FreedomWorks under fire for ‘Retire Mitch’ signs in Kentucky

A group supporting Sen. Mitch McConnell’s (R-Ky.) primary challenger is facing backlash from Kentuckians for blanketing parts of the state in anti-McConnell signage.

FreedomWorks, which has endorsed businessman Matt Bevin in the primary race, has been asked by local government officials in Louisville to take down what one official says are “hundreds” of “Retire Mitch” signs posted all over Jefferson County.

But a FreedomWorks representative said the group has no plans to take down the signs there or anywhere else in the state, 10,000 of which have already been distributed to local activists across Kentucky.

Louisville Metro Government Code Enforcement Officer Chris Monahan said he called Jeff Scully, the group’s outreach manager, to let him know the signs violate local ordinances.
