The Sedgwick County Republican Party has called for the resignation of three lawmakers involved in a false attack ad and resulting lawsuit.

In a social media post Saturday afternoon, the group says that recent events involving Sedgwick County Commissioner Michael O’Donnell, Kansas Representative Michael Capps, and Wichita City Council member James Clendenin reveal “malicious and dishonest actions.”

Wichita Mayor Brandon Whipple filed a lawsuit against the three men and Matthew Colborn claiming defamation by helping to create a false attack ad against him in his run for mayor in 2019.

Colborn was released from the lawsuit and as part of the agreement, turned over all of the relevant case material, including audio of a meeting between him and Capps, O’Donnell and Clendenin.
