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

KSAL StaffSeptember 28, 2014

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.
