The wife of Kentucky state Rep. Dan Johnson, who killed himself previous year amid allegations of sexual assault, has lost a bid to succeed her late husband. The election was held in the wake of a pastor-turned-politician Dan Johnson's suicide, which occurred two days after the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting published accusations that he sexually assaulted a minor.
Rebecca Johnson, the defeated Republican candidate, is Johnson's widow. One week earlier, Democrats won an upset victory in Sarasota, Florida; one week before that, the party flipped control of a legislative seat in Missouri.
The day before Johnson took his own life, he spoke from the pulpit at his Heart of Fire Church in the Fern Creek neighborhood of Louisville to denounce the allegations, calling them "fake news". She won more than 68 percent of the vote in the special election.
James Carmony, 47, said he wasn't sure he believed the sexual assault allegations and said he ultimately voted for Johnson because she is a Republican and he believed she would support the state's GOP governor.
