Secretary of State candidate could be fined, accused of breaking campaign finance laws

April 22, 2010

— A state senator running for Kansas secretary of state is accused of breaking campaign finance laws.

Democrat Chris Steineger of Kansas City, Kan., could be fined up to $15,000 if the state Governmental Ethics Commission concludes he violated state law.

A notice filed by the commission’s executive director alleges that Steineger improperly used his Senate campaign fund to finance polls last year for possible runs for governor and secretary of state.

The notice from the executive director, Carol Williams, also alleges that Steineger illegally solicited campaign contributions from lobbyists during this year’s legislative session.

The commission has scheduled a May 18 hearing on the allegations.

The Legislature is currently on a break. A call to Steineger’s home Thursday was not immediately returned.

A previous version of this story incorrectly said that Steineger had already been fined. That hasn't yet been determined.

I would simply point out that most Democrats consider Steineger a Republican. After all, he votes with Republicans consistently in the State Senate and is a darling of Americans for Prosperity/Koch Industries.

Not an accurate statement at all ..... so far this session Senator Steineger has only cast 12 votes in which he was not voting with the majority of Democratic senators. He seems to disagree with his Party on budget and economic development issues.

"Informed (anonymous) says… Where is the outrage from the liberal Lawrence elite? If he was a Republican, rather than a Democrat, many on this board would be all over this like white on rice. Double standards? Nah, couldn't be."

I know that the Tea Bag Nation thinks that due process is socialist government program, but it would be smart to keep your powder dry until there is a ruling.

Same deal as with Mike O'Neal, people should STFU until the process has run it's course.

If he is found guilty, he'll get punished. Until then, it's difficult to speculate on the limited information provided. A person (even this person) is innocent until proven guilty. I can't comment on his character, but his voting record is publicly accessible.

Dirt on politicians is nothing new. Keating 5 (republician) McCain, Affair (democrat) Edwards are just a couple I've named.

Seldom right, and wrong again, edjayhawk and texburgh. In Larryville, if a Republican even looks crosswise, he (or she) gets all kinds of crap on this board.

Perhaps that's why the "liberal Lawrence elite" is not weighing in. Yet another ethically challenged Republican!

Informed (anonymous) says… Where is the outrage from the liberal Lawrence elite? If he was a Republican, rather than a Democrat, many on this board would be all over this like white on rice. Double standards? Nah, couldn't be.

Shut up. Right here moron. Steineger family has been dirty as far back as who know when. Why is this any surprise? Just like the Daileys in Chicago. The question is will you express outrage when a Republican is accused of wrong doing?

Check the last name. For those who have been around for a while this comes as no great surprise. The apple does not fall far from the tree.

Self esteem problems?
