Remember the guys in cockroach costumes at last month’s Kansas State Fair gubernatorial debate who protested Gov. Kathleen Sebelius’ veto of an abortion clinic regulations bill? State Rep. Vaughn Flora, D-Topeka (in photo), now faces a count of misdemeanor battery in Reno County for his alleged contact with one of the “cockroaches,” aka Troy Newman of Operation Rescue; a paper clip that was holding a mask cut Newman’s scalp during the incident. If convicted, Flora could face up to a year in prison and a fine of less than $1,000. Flora’s attorney is Rep. Jim Ward, D-Wichita.
