Kentucky Governor Weighs In

Gov. Andy Beshear tells the Courier-Journal that stealing from tornado victims in his state "beyond despicable."

"We cannot let it happen. To take advantage of somebody who has lost everything is beyond despicable," said the governor. "And if we catch you, we will prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law. Be a decent human being. Don't engage in those types of activities."
