Former Governor, U.S. Senator and U.S. Attorney John Ashcroft spoke briefly with KY3 News after Sen. Kit Bond's speech Monday.
In a speech, Ashcroft said his career of public service could not have been possible without Sen. Bond.
In our interview, Ashcroft called Bond "a person of incredibly strong integrity, scandal-free."
Ashcroft then brushed aside a question about the controversy surrounding the firing U.S. Attorney Todd Graves, and the apology Sen. Bond made because of a Justice Department report that implicated Bond's office for holding a political grudge.
After that question, Ashcroft quickly removed the microphone and ended the interview.
