FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky State Majority Leader Damon Thayer’s ex-fiancee has alleged in a lawsuit that he threatened to use his political power against her.

The Georgetown News-Graphic reported Saturday ( that the allegations are part of lawsuits Thayer and his former fiancee Tonya Branham have filed against each other.

After an argument in which police were called to the home Dec. 14, Branham claims that Thayer said he would prevent a police report from being created. Georgetown police told the News-Graphic no report was generated because there was no allegation of physical violence and no crime was committed.

Branham also says Thayer threatened to get the Administrative Office of the Courts to no longer allow her to serve as a Families in Transition counselor and to try to keep her from volunteering with the Court Appointed Special Advocates.
