DENVER — GOP gubernatorial candidate Dan Maes has released personnel files showing his boss knew that he was investigating a gambling ring and meeting with the Kansas Bureau of Investigation.
The KBI has said Maes never worked with them.
Maes provided his termination letter from 1985 to The Associated Press. In it, Liberal Police Chief Richard Kistner told Maes he was being fired for telling his girlfriend that her family was under investigation.
The department and the KBI did not return phone calls seeking comment.
In his dismissal appeal, Maes told Kistner he told his girlfriend six months after the investigation into a gambling ring ended that her family had been under investigation “as a gesture of love” for the lies he had told her.
