In the video, Bevin never explicitly mentioned his comments on sexual assault, instead he referred to what he called "unintended consequences" of schools closing.
Matt Bevin apologized Sunday for saying that youngsters had been sexually abused as a result of they had been left house alone whereas lecturers rallied to ask lawmakers to override his vetoes.
Bevin apologized a number of occasions in Sunday's video and stated many individuals misunderstood and "didn't absolutely admire" his earlier assertion.
"The words that people say can have unintended consequences", Bevin said in a video posted to his administration's YouTube page.
Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear, a Democrat and Bevin foe, called the governor's comments "morally reprehensible".
"It is my accountability to symbolize you, not exclusively after I'm talking to you, however after I'm talking in your behalf in methods which might be clear, which might be understood, that do not harm folks and do not confuse folks", he stated.
To the extent that I have a responsibility to you, and I do, to make sure that we get this right, I take that very seriously, to every teacher, but also to every other worker as well: our state police, our highway workers, the social workers, the men and women who go in and out of office and in and out of, sometimes risky situations day in and day out, thank you for what you do.
While speaking with reporters in Frankfort Friday, Bevin claimed that teachers who called in sick to protest put the children's lives in danger. "It is not my intent to hurt anybody in this process". We need each other, we're in this together.
Bevin, who would see his veto of an education-boosting state budget overridden by state lawmakers, characterized the attitudes of protesting teachers as cavalier and flippant about student safety.
