Strip-club raid an issue in Kansas governor’s race

Associated Press - September 28, 2014 11:08 pm

An attorney for the Kansas Governmental Ethics Commission says former Democratic lawmaker Paul Davis can continue to be part of a federal lawsuit challenging voter registration restrictions.

Republican Gov. Sam Brownback’s Democratic challenger is on the defensive over disclosures that he was inside a southeast Kansas strip club during a 1998 drug raid and was found in a back room with a nearly naked woman.

The GOP says the incident raises questions about Davis’ character, while Davis supporters say Republicans are desperate over a potential Brownback loss.

Democrat Paul Davis was 26, single and a young attorney in a firm representing the owner of the club near Coffeyville. The owner spent six years in federal prison, but Davis was not arrested.

Davis is now 42, and says he was “in the wrong place at the wrong time.” He released a statement from a participant in the raid saying Davis was not involved in any wrongdoing.

this guy has more to worry about than that. He is losing probably over 100,000 votes because of his involvement in getting the law passed to no longer accept the reporting of farm and small business loses on the kansas tax forms. who else would need to report those losts but the small farmers who are battling high gas, feed and hay prices causing their operations to be losing money. Paul Davies could care less and this will cost him the election.
