 On March 7, 2017, I was asked via email from Lyft, from which I had not heard of before, to submit an application to be one of their drivers. I have a lengthy history of professional driving and, being curious, I submitted an app. The qualifications were to have a vehicle no older than 2007, have insurance on the vehicle, an up-to-date registration, pass a limited​ DMV check and background check. After submitting all the requirements I continued to receive text messages from Lyft that My insurance wasn't checking out or I wasn't good looking enough in several pictures, continued requests for a copy of my Social Security Card and previous tax statements and bank statements. Even my birth certificate was requested, from which I obliged. I even sent in a copy of my title to my 2010 BMW. All of which to prove who I was. Again, Lyft requested even more proof of identity and by now I'm literally pulling my hair out.

Meanwhile Lyft had received my background check which was spotless on my DMV and the criminal check had come back that I had been confirmed of being convicted of a felony in April, 1990 (criminal check was dated March 15, 2017). I was 22-years old back then and I'm now 49 1/2-years old. Further, my rights have been restored by our Governor and the conviction was not sex, drug or violence related. Meanwhile, in those past 27-years, I have held a public, hazmat, CDL license and had not even received a speeding ticket. In short, I was convicted for not squealing on two acquaintances that were the bad boys of our community way back then but neither of which were violent by any means. My charge was "Complicity to burglary." Because I did not squealing I was told by the police I was just as guilty. I didn't have money at age 22 to obtain a lawyer. And because I believed those police at what they told me I had plead guilty. I found out later that I could not be held responsible for what another does or says. It could may of well have been in jest. So if your sister or brother you know, more than I would have known, has been driving intoxicated for an evening and gets in an unfortunate accident and someone loses a life are you guilty of murder also? Kentucky has no FCRA compliances and if you are guilty by association like me good luck. What Left has done is discriminate and Kentucky is holding the smoking gun. Civil right suite is sure to be filed as I have nothing better to do with my time because I cannot gain meaningful employment.
