Kansas regulators have allowed U.S. Representative Lynn Jenkins to continue tagging congressional and campaign materials with a CPA label, though her state permit to work as a certified public accountant expired nearly two years ago.
The arrangement was approved by the Kansas Board of Accountancy in 2011 before Jenkins’ permit expired in 2012.
Her spokesman Tom Brandt says guidelines of the U.S. House regarding taxpayer-funded mailings enabled official stationary to include information about a member's professional license.
U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts continues to maintain his fundraising advantage over challenger Dr. Milton Wolf in their Kansas primary race.
According to reports filed with the Federal Elections Commission, incumbent Senator Roberts raised more than $534,000 from Jan. 1 through March 31st, aided by nearly $260,000 from political action committees.
Wolf’s campaign says it raised more than $318,000 during the same period, and that all but about 5 thousand dollars were from individual donors.
