​Ethics Complaint to Question Payment of Legal Fees

WICHTA, Kan. (AP) _ A top Democratic lawmaker says he plans to file a complaint with the Kansas Governmental Ethics Commission seeking an investigation into Governor Sam Brownback's use of campaign donations to pay more than $167,000 in legal fees last year. The payments came as a federal grand jury was investigating loans that Lieutenant Governor Jeff Colyer made to their 2014 re-election effort. Senate Minority Leader Anthony Hensley said Monday he also plans to ask the ethics panel for an advisory opinion on the legality of a candidate using campaign funds as collateral. Eileen Hawley, spokeswoman for the governor's office, said Monday that the campaign complied with all laws and regulations and that the investigation into the loans did not result in charges.
