Kansas Democratic gubernatorial candidate Paul Davis has pulled a campaign ad featuring an actor who in 2007 was arrested on suspicion of soliciting a male prostitute
The actor, Jeff Montague was also banned from the Boy Scouts of America in 1989 after the organization learned that he had been suspended from a teaching position at a Topeka high school “for inappropriate conduct with a male foreign exchange student.”
In a statement, Davis said:
“It was brought to our attention that a participant in one of those ads has serious issues in his background. Upon hearing of these issues, the ad, which ran for a few hours, was pulled down immediately. I want to apologize to Kansans for this mistake.”
Reacting to the news, Clay Barker, the executive director of the Kansas Republican Party suggested that Davis may no longer be fit for office.
