State ethics officials have lodged an ethics complaint against a Junction City lawmaker for using official state stationery for political purposes.
The Kansas Governmental Ethics Commission is accusing state Rep. Lonnie Clark of using the stationery in a fundraising letter sent on or about last Oct. 2.
He faces a $5,000 fine for a first violation. A hearing is set for March 25.
In an interview on Wednesday, Clark said he had used the gold embossed logo of the state Capitol on his business cards on a fundraising email.
He said the mistake was inadvertent and was in touch . . .
