Is This Why the NY Times Called Out Sen Roberts on His Lack of KS Residency?

It was curious to many observers that the nation's leading paper of record would take such an interest in what state Sen. Roberts called home.  The issue was made all the more strange when it was revealed Sen. Roberts hasn't lived in Kansas since he was in his mid-twenties, some 15 years before being elected to congress to represent the sunflower state, which left the paper with more than 50 years to uncover the scandal.

Today the NY Times may have just tipped its cards:  Sebelius Said to Weigh Run for Kansas Senate Seat
"Several Democrats said this week that Ms. Sebelius had been mentioned with growing frequency as someone who could wage a serious challenge to Mr. Roberts, 77, who is running for a fourth term and is considered vulnerable. One person who spoke directly to Ms. Sebelius said that she was thinking about it."

I don't think the people of Kansas are stupid enough to elevate The Secretary of Broken Promises to the Senate. Of course I could be wrong.

Yeah she definitely tarnished her image, especially to the Kansas demographic. As governor she was the stylish female who put an efficient face on the democrat party. She did not appear partisan and tried to make herself appear rational in a sea of GOP hardliners.

Now she is one of the poster children of Obamacare and she had to be partisan to help sell that piece of legislation. The incompetence of the roll out only serves to make her look like an incompetent partisan. Good luck running in KS. If she could only change her residency to CT or MA.
