Lt. Gov. Kinder Under Fire Again Over Hotel Stays

Carol Daniel

KANSAS CITY, MO.(AP) — Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder has said he’ll repay the state $35-thousand dollars for hotel stays in the St. Louis area. 

Now Democrats are raising questions about whether a hotel stay by Kinder in Kansas City in 2008 was really state business.

The Kansas City Star reported today that Kinder spent $706 for a three-night stay at the Intercontinental Hotel. 

Kinder held town hall meetings, toured the construction site of the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts and, on his last night, hosted a fundraiser featuring Republican operative Karl Rove.

Kinder’s chief of staff, Bill Kenney, said the reimbursement was justified because Kinder met with constituents in his official capacity.

    Funny. I don’t recall Carol leading the charge to investigate Claire McCaskill, nor do I recall her interest in Jay Nixon’s affairs. Oh well. I would suggest her arms get tired from carrying the Democrat Party’s water, but she’s bug enough to not have it make a dent
