Kansas lawmaker questions validity of candidate's home address

A man running for state representative in Kansas is facing questions about where he really lives.

Rep. Vick Miller called a news conference Tuesday to complain that Adam Thomas, a Republican candidate from Johnson County, does not live in the district he wants to represent. Miller said Thomas registered to vote with a new address the day before he filed his candidate application, and he said the landlord of the new address didn't find any evidence that Thomas or his family had moved in.

Miller is asking Secretary of State Kris Kobach to investigate. 

According to a campaign Facebook page, Thomas is a 35-year-old father of four daughters and a graduate of Olathe South High School. 

Thomas did not respond to a KMBZ request for a comment.
