Fued Ends Between DA, Congressman

The Douglas County District Attorney’s office says it’s no longer looking into an NCAA basketball tournament lottery conducted by Rep. Tim Huelskamp.

Huelskamp’s campaign took exception to a release earlier this month from Douglas County District Attorney Charles Branson announcing that a Huelskamp raffle for two tickets to the NCAA regional in St. Louis violated Kansas law. Branson said the promotion was illegal because it required a $10 campaign contribution to be eligible for the drawing.

The Huelskamp campaign said it dropped the contribution requirement before Branson’s news release. Huelskamp, a Hutchinson Republican, said Thursday that Branson’s office acted appropriately when it inquired about the contest.

Branson said in a release that his office has done all it intends to do on the matter.
