Tim Huelskamp is a frothing Tea-Party Republican U.S. Congressman from western Kansas. In my personal opinion, he’s about as loathsome as Rick Santorum, maybe worse.
Huelskamp sent out an email offering entry into a drawing for a free set of NCAA Tournament basketball tickets to people willing to contribute at least $10 to his re-election. Local legal officials promptly pointed out that under Kansas law this constitutes an illegal raffle and a felony. Huelskamp is now offering entry into the drawing for free. An article from the Topeka paper is here:
