KS GOP Pursues Ethics Claim Against Candidate

Vote by SKTOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas Republican Party is accusing the presumed Democratic nominee for secretary of state of illegally soliciting campaign contributions from lobbyists through a campaign Facebook page. Democratic candidate and former state Sen. Jean Schodorf on Monday described the GOP's complaint as mudslinging. The state ethics commission informed state GOP Executive Director Clay Barker last month that it would consider the complaint in a closed session at its meeting Wednesday. Barker contends Schodorf violated a law prohibiting candidates for statewide office from soliciting contributions from lobbyists while the Legislature is in session with a May 1 Facebook posting that sought help in raising money. Barker said at least one lobbyist has liked her page. Schodorf hopes to unseat Secretary of State Kris Kobach, though the Republican incumbent has a primary opponent.
