DA to Consider Charges in Sebelius Protestor Attack

By  | 

Reno County prosecutors today are expected to begin reviewing an assault report filed by a protester during a debate at the State Fair.

A man who was wearing a cockroach costume to protest Governor Sebelius while she debated Republican challenger Jim Barnett claims he was assaulted by someone in the crowd Saturday. He and another man wore cockroach costumes bearing the governor's face.

They handed out cards saying cockroaches at abortion clinics loved Sebelius because she vetoed an abortion clinic inspections bill.

The Kansas Highway Patrol planned to turn the report over to the Reno County District Attorney's Office for possible charges.

The protester said he lives in south-central Kansas but did not give his name.
