Kansas Official Doesn’t Appear Before Grand Jury

KSAL StaffJanuary 14, 2015

A Kansas ethics official subpoenaed as part of an inquiry into loans to Gov. Sam Brownback’s re-election campaign didn’t appear as ordered Wednesday before a federal grand jury.

Governmental Ethics Commission Executive Director Carol Williams confirmed she was in her office when the grand jury appeared to be meeting at the federal courthouse in Topeka.

Williams received a subpoena last month ordering her to appear before the grand jury on Wednesday. She declined to say if she’d been asked to appear on a different day.

The subpoena didn’t specify which loans were being investigated, but said they were made in 2013 and 2014. State records show four loans were made during that time: three $500,000 loans from Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer, and a $200,000 loan form Brownback and his wife.
