Sedgwick County Commissioner Richard Ranzau, who had been openly critical of fellow commissioner Michael O'Donnell during public meetings, reacts to the news that O'Donnell has been indicted in federal court on bank and wire fraud charges.
Sedgwick County District Attorney Marc Bennett confirmed that under state law, an elected official who is indicted is not required to resign. In a statement summarizing the law, Bennett said, "if an elected official is convicted of a crime or committed misconduct while in office, the District Attorney or Attorney General can initiate ouster proceedings against the elected official If the elected official is removed from office or voluntarily resigns, the political party to which the elected official belongs then chooses the successor to serve the balance of the unfinished term.
The first indication of a federal investigation involving O'Donnell came in February of last year. Several members of the Wichita Eagle staff received letters from the Justice Department informing them that their phone conversations with O'Donnell had been intercepted by investigators.
Those letters came simultaneously with notifications that the federal government had also tapped the cellphones of several Wichita businessmen said to be in connection with an investigation into gambling.
According to a news release by the U. The indictment alleges that after C. After receiving the check, J. O'Donnell has been a rising star in Kansas Republican politics, but has had his share of trouble along the way. His career as an officeholder began in , when, at age 26, he won a City Council seat representing southwest Wichita. The following year, he was on the state ballot, part of an effort by Republican conservatives to purge the party of moderate legislators who clashed with Gov.
Sam Brownback on taxes and education. O'Donnell defeated three-term incumbent Jean Schodorf, then the chairwoman of the Education Committee and a moderate, in a Republican primary for a state Senate seat in west Wichita.
In the general election, O'Donnell faced Democrat Tim Snow, whose campaign was crippled by revelations that he'd been prosecuted in Morris County on charges of writing bad checks and driving under the influence, and repeatedly sued over unpaid debts and taxes. O'Donnell didn't wait to finish his first Senate term before running for a seat on the Sedgwick County Commission. The job is perceived as a step up from the Legislature because it's full-time, pays better and it's easier to get things done as one of five commissioners instead of one of 40 senators.
He took on longtime incumbent and former Haysville Mayor Tim Norton, the only Democrat on the commission and won in a narrow victory. Sedgwick County Commissioner Richard Ranzau accused commissioner Michael O'Donnell of lying to the public while discussing whether to restore a job for a community health surveyor. Since the wiretaps became public, Ranzau has been critical of O'Donnell. With the indictment, Ranzau issued this statement: O'Donnell's time in elective office has been over shadowed by investigations and questionable judgment.
