Barbara Shanklin Ethics Vote Tally


Shanklin: How the council jurors voted
By Ali Hammond


LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - After one week of sometimes contentious testimony in her Louisville Metro Council Court ethics trial, Councilwoman Barbara Shanklin was spared removal from the council Wednesday night. 

A 20-member council jury found Shanklin, who represent's Louisville's 2nd district, guilty of misconduct but only 13 members -- one short of the required two-thirds majority -- voted to remove her from office. 
Shanklin faced two charges of misusing her council powers. She was accused of repeatedly failing to disclose conflicts of interest, intentionally deceiving fellow council members and misdirecting taxpayer money. 

In a vote of 16 to 4, the majority found Shanklin guilty of misconduct and willful neglect. Only Attica Scott, David Tandy and Brent Ackerson voted to find Shanklin guilty but voted against her removal from office.
