TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ The Kansas Republican Party's former executive director is suing its current chairman.
Ron Freeman contends the party owes him nearly $27,000 in salary, commissions on contributions, penalties and interest. He's accusing state GOP Chairman Kris Kobach of breach of contract.
The party contends Freeman isn't due the money and has been fully paid.
Freeman's case went to trial Wednesday in Shawnee County District Court.
Freeman became executive director in May 2006, when former State Treasurer Tim Shallenburger was chairman.
Kobach replaced Shallenburger early in 2007 and offered Freeman a lower paying job, which Freeman did not take.
