DA: Gov's Meetings Were "Technical" Violations of Law

Taylor-1500Shawnee County District Attorney Chad Taylor speaks to reporters about the investigation. (Photo by Stephen Koranda)Shawnee County District Attorney Chad Taylor says his office can’t prove there were significant violations of open meetings rules during legislative dinners held at the governor’s residence. More than 90 legislators were invited to the dinners held in January. Taylor isn't seeking penalties, but as KPR’s Stephen Koranda tells us, a report on the investigation does point to some wrongdoing.

The head of the Kansas Press Association is not satisfied with the outcome of the investigation into the legislative dinners. The association’s executive director, Doug Anstaett (ANN-stat), calls the district attorney’s report a “hollow victory.”

The Kansas Press Association and the Topeka Capital-Journal are the organizations that originally raised concerns about the closed-door meetings at the governor’s residence.
