Four State Senators, the Lieutenant Governor, and a former Governor have been summoned to testify at the trial of a former Kansas City lobbyist who’s accused of lying to a grand jury. The trial of Bill Waris begins next Tuesday. Former Governor Bob Holden and Lieutenant Governor Peter Kinder are among summoned witnesses. A grand jury had investigated whether Jackson County Executive Katheryn Shields offered a no-bid contract to fund-raiser Catherine Nugent, in return for which her husband would withdraw his application for membership on the Jackson County Sports Authority. Waris’ trial will be in Kansas City.
