Dan Johnson, R, committed suicide Wednesday, WDRB reported.

Sheriff Donnie Tinnell also confirms that Johnson shot himself on the Greenwell Ford Bridge in Mt. Washington. AMERICA will not survive this type of judge and jury fake news. In that note, Johnson denied allegations laid out in the story by the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting.

Johnson is said to have frequently thrown alcohol-fueled parties like the one where the alleged assault occurred at the fellowship hall next to the Heart of Fire Church, otherwise known as the "Pope House".

Via Twitter, Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin said his "heart breaks for (Johnson's) family". She told KyCIR that he kissed her forehead and then slipped his hands up her shirt and bra. But in an interview with WKYX radio, he spoke in general about the "reprehensible" allegations against Johnson and four other Republican lawmakers who recently settled a sexual-harassment claim outside of court.

The Bullitt County Coroner, David Billings, said officials saw the post on Johnson's Facebook and pinged his phone to check on him. He linked them to similar allegations against the Alabama Republican Roy Moore, who was defeated in a special Senate election that day, saying they were part of a nationwide strategy to defeat conservative Republicans.

The US government never published any evidence to sustain its claims, all of which became public only through leaks to the US press.

Johnson was never criminally charged.

"What you did was beyond mean, it was evil", the victim said she wrote in a Facebook message to him shortly after the incident, according to KyCIR. I looked at you as a Dad, but now I sincerely hope I don't see you again, but I might try to maintain a relationship with your kids. "It is with great sadness that we have received confirmed reports of the passing of Rep. Dan Johnson this evening", Osbourne said. "I don't want to blast this girl, I have a lot of compassion for her", Johnson said, according to the Courier-Journal.

Police documents obtained by the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting show a detective closed the case because Richmond would not cooperate. However, later he acknowledged to have messaged the girl on Facebook in January 2013 and claiming to not remember what happened the night of the alleged encounter. 9-11-2001 NYC/WTC, PTSD 24/7 16 years is a sickness that will take my life, I can not handle it any longer.
