Illegal soliciting gets governor $1,500 fine

TOPEKA, KANSAS -- Gov. Kathleen Sebelius was fined $1,500 by the state ethics panel Thursday for illegally soliciting campaign contributions from lobbyists.
The case involved an April 12 e-mail that Sebelius' re-election campaign sent to 92,000 backers. State law prohibits legislators, statewide officials and candidates for those offices from seeking contributions from lobbyists, corporations and political action committees while the Legislature remains in session.
Sebelius' staff had described the e-mail as an update on education, but at the bottom was a link to the governor's campaign Web site, where people can make a contribution. The link itself said: "Make a contribution."
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."

Well, it's a start, but probably only a slap on the wrist. Chances are the "donation" was more than $ 1,500.

Most people in KS will forget about this five minutes after hearing about it.
