Douglas County codes appeal board member thought review would address Kobach controversy in detail

Amen, the stories don't add up and the county is doing an obvious cover up style pivoting of the investigation that quieted everyone down and now to find out its a repeat effort to say they did something. What about the other two commissioners? Are they now a part of the cover up as the do nothing to push the investigation to the Kobach issue? Nancy, can you provide us an answer?

Kobach opposes specialty meat shop in rural Douglas County; chef says his proposal is being mischaracterized

I wonder if Jim Flory showed up to the meeting when the Sec of State called him? Two peas in a pod over the permit breaks Kobach received from Flory and the County Administrator.

And they cover it up with hiring an outside review of the codes and plans?!! Get a 3rd party investigator to check into possible violations of process provided by our county governing officials.

Were there any persons of color living in Lawrence back in this time? Can't tell by the photos presented.

Lawrence Community Shelter seeks immediate funds to avert drastic cuts

The shelter needs to hire Secretary of State Chris Kobach. Flory will then bend over backwards and break the rules so to be more 'friendly' to the shelter-;)

Your Turn: Commissioner addresses code issues

I disagree. Most comments are not about Kobach himself, but about the commission's involvement in providing unbalanced application of processes in place. From Mr. Flory's comments, it is apparent that he did want to please the SOS regardless of the rules in place. There should be an independent 3rd party investigation into this issue as a way to clear the speculation brought on from a couple of individuals breaking protocol and doing what steps it took to ensure the SOS was treated favorably.

Trio of Lawrence commissioners say they want to get tougher on economic incentives

I hope all public officials will use social media of all types to further communicate their positions; especially when not quoted correctly. Keep it up Matt. Don't let anyone intimidate your choices while on the commission.

KU chancellor's husband worked closely with people implicated in UNC's massive academic fraud case

Sounds like you must have some really good seats you don't want to lose Joe. The article picks up pieces of a puzzle and starts to put them together; nothing wrong with that. Hard to understand how a well educated individual, at a high management level, and whose spouse was an assistant dean in a program of questionable behavior; was not aware of those issues taking place; especially when high-profile students are involved. And for that same person to then make a statement completely distancing herself from the situation. It used to be long ago, that public figures ensured that their dealing were "above reproach", and today we are stuck with the same public officials making sure their action "were not illegal". Let the investigation move forward, let the freedom of the press continue on without interference.

Appeals board questions Douglas County codes enforcement policy

Commissioner Gaughan states in today's article, that the commissioners are NOW going to look further into this issue; only last week Commissioner Gaughan was reported as being satisfied with the outcome and accepted the "unwritten change of evaluations"
I am willing to give this same commissioner SOME time to review and get back to the public as to what took place in DETAIL. And then what actions are to be taken to prevent such misconduct from repeating itself. Someone or some people need to be removed from their position in order to ensure that this issue stands out within the county government, so that the next guy doesn't do what someone else told him to do, and in-turn, that procedures are followed by the codes that are written. There has to be some resolution beyond a paper promise of new order by two commissioners and a scrambling administrator. Power has to be shifted in order for justice to be served.

These guys (county personnel and the cover up by the two commissioners) knew what they were doing when they did what they did. And it does no one any good to continue to coat over the truth with deception and excuses. I would like to see the affidavit from the two inspectors as to how and why they felt removed and replaced. Does the current inspector feel he has complete authority to forgive any codes he now finds are being violated and how if he so believes he has such authority, does he determine who gets penalized with re-inspections and which projects are allowed to continue without further evaluation (such as Kobach received)

Should some official be forced to resign or County official is found to have acted illegally, then that will cause other state agencies, review boards and the state media groups to do follow up investigations and in so and if deserving, prosecutions. That is the justice we are all seeking and that is the justice that is deserved. If only Rachel Maddow was in town.....does anyone have those connections?
