​Kansas Launches New Campaign Finance Website Amid Criticism

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas Governmental Ethics Commission has launched a new campaign finance website that officials say might not address the public's needs. The website aimed to give people easier access to information about which political candidates are receiving money and who's contributing to campaigns, The Lawrence Journal-World reported. Carol Williams, who heads the commission, said the website won't address many of the concerns raised in a new national report that says most states have campaign finance websites that are confusing, difficult to navigate and often provide inaccurate information. Williams said she believes the new website is easier to navigate but that the data itself is still the same. It's composed mainly of PDFs, which are hard for users to search or navigate because many of them are handwritten.
