No Charges After Federal Probe Into Kansas Election Loans

The U.S. attorney's office said Wednesday that federal prosecutors have completed their investigation into loans made to Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback's re-election campaign by his lieutenant governor and plan to bring no criminal charges. Jeff Colyer release a joint statement saying they had been informed there would be no charges after the probe "regarding campaign finance matters." According to the statement by the Republican running mates, "As we have stated many times, our campaign finances were conducted in full compliance with applicable law and ethics regulations." A spokesman for Davis, who narrowly lost the race to Brownback, said before the election that voters "deserve to know where this money came from."
