Daniel Cameron’s Professional Career

Cameron began his legal career as a clerk for Federal District Judge Gregory F. Van Tatenhove in the Eastern District of New York for two years. Later, from 2015 to 2017, he worked as legal counsel for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. During that time, he effectively supervised the confirmation processes for conservative federal judges, including Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch. In 2017, he returned to the Frost Brown Todd law firm in Louisville as a senior associate. On January 21, 2019, he announced his candidacy for Attorney General of Kentucky. He received President Donald Trump’s endorsement after defeating State Senator Wil Schroder in the Republican primary by a margin of 132,400 votes (55.3 percent) to 106,950 votes (44.7 percent).

He defeated Democratic former Attorney General Greg Stumbo in the November 2019 General Elections. As previously indicated, he was the first Republican elected to the office since 1944, succeeding Eldon S. Dummit, who served from 1944 to 1948. He became Kentucky’s second African-American statewide officer and the first to run for office on an independent ticket (Lieutenant Governor General Jenean Hampton had shared the Gubernational ticket of 2015 with Matt Bevin). His term as Attorney General of Kentucky was set to begin on January 6, 2020, however, to cover the vacancy caused when Andy Beshear resigned after winning the governorship elections, he issued an executive letter appointing Cameron.

Attorney General’s Office

Cameron was sworn in as soon as the let letter was signed on December 17th, 2019. Cameron stated on the 27th of March, 2020, after beginning his term as Attorney General of Kentucky, that abortion is an elective medical treatment and should be subject to a statewide prohibition until the Coronavirus epidemic is finished. He advocated for a moratorium on all abortions in Kentucky during the pandemic. The Kentucky Legislature granted him the authority to oversee abortion clinics in the final days of the legislative session, but Governor Andy Beshear refused to sign the law.

Case of Breonna Taylor

The Police Department of Louisville conducted an internal inquiry into the police homicide of Breonna Taylor on March 13, 2020. More than 100 protestors marched to Cameron’s house and occupied his property to demand punishment for the cops involved in the shooting, as organized by the social justice movement Until Freedom. Police detained 87 protesters and charged them with a variety of offenses, including Intimidating a Participant in the Legal Process, which is a very serious violation. Cameron accused the protestors of invading private property and claiming that the protest’s goal was to “increase” tension and division in the community.

He stated that the grand jury charged Officer Brett Hankison with three counts of wanton endangerment (a Class D felony, which implies that a person can be found guilty even if they did not intend to injure anyone or commit a crime) in relation to the family who lived next door. Officers Jonathan Mattingly and Myles Cosgrove were fired at Taylor’s residence, according to Cameron, and they were not charged with any crime as a result. Hankinson had already been sacked by interim Police Chief Robert Schroeder, who claimed Hankinson was fired for indiscriminately shooting into Taylor’s apartment and nearby units.
