Investigation finds anonymous campaign against Linda Mau in Roeland Park doesn’t violate state law

  • This mailer didn’t cross campaign laws because it happened in Roeland Park.

The Johnson County District Attorney can’t make a legal case against an unsourced campaign mailer that took Roeland Park mayoral aspirant Linda Mau to task for codes violations and bounced checks.

The Kansas City Star reported Wednesday that the anti-Mau flier that went out to Roeland Park residents just before the April 2 general election did not violate Kansas campaign laws.

The Pitch predicted early in April that the district attorney’s investigation wouldn’t unearth legal wrongdoing because Kansas laws that forbid anonymous campaign materials don’t apply to “second-class” cities like Roeland Park.
