Republicans Launch Criminal Complaint Against Guv Kelly Amid Cut Advert Dispute

TV is the last medium worth fighting over and TKC is the only KC covering this somewhat entertaining slap fight confronting the Guv.

Basically . . . The complaint alleges that the Guv is using undue influence in censoring a political TV advert.

Here are the basics . . .

"The RGA delivered a criminal referral to the Shawnee County District Attorney, Michael Kagay, and the Shawnee County Sheriff, Brian Hill, accusing Kelly of criminal use of taxpayer resources to aide in her re-election campaign. Both Kagay and Hill are Republicans.

"According to the group, Kelly’s campaign tried to have an RGA Kansas 2022 PAC ad taken off the air. Kelly’s campaign sent a letter to TV stations. The group says they received a letter from a lawyer which included a memo from Kansas Department of Children and Families Secretary Laura Howard, which has since resulted in an ethics complaint being filed by the RGA.

"Kelly’s campaign pointed back to the dismissed ethics complaint when asked about the RGA’s attempts to prosecute the governor."
