Star spoils surprise: Parkinson will name Troy Findley lieutenant governor

Later this afternoon, Kansas Gov. Mark Parkinson will name his lieutenant governor. Top secret “sources” runied the surprise — jerks! — and told The Kansas City Star’s political blog, PrimeBuzz, that Parkinson “will name his chief of staff, Troy Findley, to be his lieutenant governor.”

Uh, who?

Findley is a Democrat, a former state lawmaker from liberal Lawrence and also a former chief of staff for former Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius.

So far, Parkinson’s judgement has been, uh, more than questionable. Let’s see how this one goes.
