— State ethics officials will hold a hearing on Oct. 26 on a complaint filed against state Rep. TerriLois Gregory that alleges she used public resources for political campaigning.

Gregory, R-Baldwin City, faces a maximum fine of $5,000 before the Kansas Governmental Ethics Commission.

Gregory has admitted she made a mistake in requesting campaign contributions in a newsletter sent in a June email from her state account.

Kansas law prohibits state elected officials from using public funds, machinery, equipment, supplies or any governmental agency for campaign purposes.

The complaint against Gregory was filed by Kenny Johnston, executive director of the Kansas Democratic Party.

In the email, under the heading “How do we continue?” Gregory asked for contributions for her 2012 re-election campaign.

The newsletter was sent from her House of Representatives email account.

“I understand that state property must be respected and will ensure that this does not happen again,” Gregory said in a statement.

ethics don't matter to a dimwit who couldn't even answer my questions at the Baker U debate last fall. Intelligence is not part of this equasion....

Priceless.

This is no different than Kris Kobach apologizing after the fact. The republicans just don't seem to be able to follow the rules. Rules and taxes are for little people! Leona Helmsley would be proud...

Just another step in the Republican Great Leap Backward...

She is someone who I hope will lose BAD! I have seen her at a Rally, she does not know how to answer questions, She should of lost to Tony Brown and I hope so bad that he runs against her and wipes the floor with her, She has not done anything good since she took office. And she is in there because she basically "Fit the suit."

Well, at least she did not use public funds to pay for water in her office... Ethics, a a very strange concept for legislators.
