Kansas Democrats File Federal Complaint That Claims Lynn Jenkins Violated Ethics And Campaign Rules

Kansas Democrats have filed two federal complaints against Republican congresswoman Lynn Jenkins.

They’re alleging she violated ethics and campaign rules because a staff member also serves as an unpaid re-election spokesman.

The Kansas Democratic Party says the complaints were filed last week with the U.S. House’s Office of Congressional Ethics and the Federal Elections Commission.

Jenkins' office says the allegations are without merit.
