Candidate for U.S. Senate tied to Purdue, other drug conflicts

As Kentucky State Attorney General Jack Conway’s bid for the U.S. Senate nears its conclusion Tuesday, his ties to various drug dealings are reportedly being questioned. According to this editorial, although Conway knowingly accepted $50,000 from the National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators – a program funded Purdue Pharma, OxyContin’s manufacturer – he claimed to put the money to use fighting drug abuse. Another issue that has risen eyebrows, according to this column in Salem News.com, is the fact the Conway’s brother, Prosecutor Matthew Conway, was twice tipped off that he was under investigation for drug use and trafficking by the Attorney General and his supporters.
