PUBLIC HEARING SET ON REPORTS

March 19, 1991

The Kansas Public Disclosure Commission has scheduled a public hearing Wednesday on charges that the treasurer of the Douglas County Republican Party failed to file two campaign finance reports during the past year.

The commission previously ruled that Phil Bradley, the party's county treasurer, intentionally failed to file a campaign finance report in July. The commission turned information on that ruling over to the Kansas attorney general's office.

Wednesday's hearing concerns two other campaign finance reports, which were due in October and January.

Bradley filed all three campaign reports in February.

Mary Horsch, spokesman for Kansas Atty. Gen. Bob Stephan, said the attorney general's staff still was considering filing charges against Bradley for missing the campaign finance report deadlines.

Failure to file the reports is a Class A misdemeanor punishable by a fine of $2,500 and a year in jail.

Horsch said the attorney general's staff decided to postpone its decision on charges until after the public hearing Wednesday, which will be at 1:30 p.m. in the Public Disclosure Commission office in Topeka.

A spokesman in the commission's office said both Bradley and his attorney are scheduled to testify.
