was in a car accident today, leaving him with yet unknown injuries.
Kentucky Col. Jordan Palmer founded Kentucky Equality Federation to advocate for victims of school bullying, hate crimes, and discrimination. Palmer also founded Kentucky Equal Ballot Access and several other non-profits, including the Southern Kentucky Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels, Inc. (also known as the Southeastern Kentucky Brigade of Kentucky Colonels).
Mr. Palmer successfully lobbied the federal government into prosecuting the first gay federal hate crime in U.S. history with the Kevin Pennington case and still under investigation, the Misty Turner case.
Mr. Palmer's attorney, Jill Hall Rose, also sued the Warren County Regional Jail when an inmate bit the note off Brandon Milam while in protective custody.
The Southeastern Kentucky Brigade of Kentucky Colonels, Kentucky Equal Ballot Access, and Kentucky Equality Federation are trying to get additional information, however, the initial phone call and scenes from the accident indicate Mr. Palmer received moderate to severe injuries.
State and federal privacy laws have prevented us from getting additional information.
No additional information was available at press time until a family member can be reached, a representative with the Southeastern Kentucky Colonels, or a representative with his State Senate campaign.
