Both the Topeka Capital Journal and the Associated Press are reporting that Rep. Roy Blunt’s former Chief of Staff, Gregg Hartley, along with other unnamed sources in Congress and the Executive Branch, confirm that Rep. Jerry Moran asked for a fundraiser with then Secretary of Commerce Don Evans in return for a vote on a trade bill granting the president fast-track authority. However, as stated in the story, none of the sources witnessed Moran making the request. Also worth noting is that Hartley is a contributor to the Tiahrt campaign.
Moran continues to deny the allegations, and ultimately voted for the bill, along with the entire Kansas House and Senate delegation.
