NYT: U.S. Senator From Kansas Doesn't Live In Kansas
An article in The New York Times says U.S. Senator Pat Roberts doesn't live in his home state — he instead rents a room from friends.By Matt Picht | February 7, 2014
Senator Pat Roberts could probably use a pair of ruby slippers right about now. The Kansas conservative politician is under attack after an article in The New York Times reported Roberts doesn't actually live in the state he represents.
The Times article says the Dodge City house listed as Roberts' voting address "belongs to two longtime supporters and donors ... and he says he stays with them when he is in the area. ... 'I have full access to the recliner,' the senator joked."
Instead Roberts, who has been in Congress since 1981, primarily lives with his family in Alexandria, Virginia. He rents a room in the Dodge City property for $300 a month whenever he visits his home state. (Via KSHB)
