Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach got a Statehouse rebuke Friday from lawmakers even as they avoided mentioning the combative candidate for governor by name.

During a lengthy debate on a budget bill, state Rep. Russ Jennings offered what at first appeared to be just another in a series of amendments.

But as soon as he started explaining its purpose — to prevent statewide elected officials cited for contempt of court from using taxpayer dollars to pay attorney fees and fines — it was clear that it was aimed at Kobach.
