Indictments Against Rep. Steve Watkins: Is This How Republicans Lose Kansas?!?

Kansas has been a reliably Red State for longer than most TKC readers have been alive . . . And this blog's readership skews toward old codgers!!!

Still, with population centers like Johnson County increasingly showing support for Democratic rising stars like Rep. Sharice Davids . . . This scandal might be a sign of changing times in the Heartland. Read more:

Kansas Republican Rep. Steve Watkins charged with voter fraud

Watkins also faces a misdemeanor charge of failing to tell the Department of Motor Vehicles of his address change. Kagay's office could not be reached for comment. Watkins has acknowledged that he used a UPS store in Topeka for his home address in order to register for a 2019 municipal election, according to the Topeka Capitol-Journal.

He claimed to be a mountain climber. That, too, was a lie.

Go figure...another Republican busted for voter fraud. It's endemic to their nature. They can't win without cheating!

Hell I knew a democrat for the Wichita area who lived in Overland Park pulled the address scam back in the early 80's. He wasn't kicked out of office for it.

I went to school with Paul and he was well different and lets leave it at that. Yes he did go wacker than his first wife after she had spent all his money they divorced over it. I mean the guy went nuts hauled the kids off to Egypt was a real soap opera.

This is an internal witch hunt by the GOP in Kansas. They want LaTurner in that position and not Watkins, I get that. I would agree with that actually. But to eat your own is irresponsible of GOP leadership.

kind of like obama being given a house in the Chicago district he ran for but didn't live in during his senate run or HILLARY LIVING IN NY for her senate seat. SILLY REPUBLICANS SHOULD KNOW ONLY DEMS GET TO LIE AND STEAL VOTES.

Ya I know. With them demanding that we use mail in voting and for letting illegal aliens have the eight to vote ... oh wait

First it was a scandal that didn't materialize and now it's a criminal prosecution by a DA who's using the same political campaign consultants as Watkin's opponent.

Say what you want about Watkins, but clearly something stinks here.
