The Kansas Ethics Commission on Wednesday fined former state Corrections Secretary Joe Norwood $5,000 for violating state ethics law by taking a job with a state prison contractor hired to build a new prison in Lansing.
Norwood went to work for CoreCivic in violation of a law barring state officials from taking a job at a company they did business with as a state employee.
State ethics law bars state employees from going to work for a contractor within two years of leaving their job or two years . . .
