Criminal charges filed against Kansas Senate majority leader

Source: AP News

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — One of the Kansas Legislature’s most powerful lawmakers was charged Friday with driving under the influence and a felony offense for trying to elude law enforcement while speeding the wrong way on highways in Topeka.

Senate Majority Leader Gene Suellentrop faces five criminal charges, including the felony count, the misdemeanor DUI count and a misdemeanor count of reckless driving. The Wichita Republican turned himself in at the local jail Friday evening, and his bond has been set at $5,000.

Mike Kagay, the Republican district attorney in Shawnee County, announced the charges, which stem from Suellentrop’s early-morning arrest last week on Interstate 70 just blocks east of the Statehouse.

Of course, he opposes Medicaid expansion and prison reform. A few months in prison may cure him of prison reform resistance.

1. $5000 ... after 5 counts, one a felony? Anyone think a random POC who'd pulled this shit, running

from the Police while driving drunk, driving the wrong way on streets to get away ... skates out with 5K in bail ($500 to the bail bondman?)

Hell they'd be lucky to be ALIVE for one thing, but if they were, they'd be looking at bail 10X that amount, guaranteed.

What a joke.

6. And in South Dakota, the republican attorney general

killed a man (walking well off the road) with his car, hit and run, and only faces three misdemeanor charges. This is justice in republican-land.

12. No

Definitely won’t go to prison. Maybe he will get a large fine and wish he would get hundreds of hours of picking up trash along I-70. Maybe also speaking to high school kids about evils of drinking and driving like he did.

15. You gotta be some kind of stupid to drive the wrong way on highways.

When stupid people then get sh*tfaced drunk, it magnifies the stupid 1000%

Thank goodness he didn’t hurt anyone.
