Girdusky cited a story published on The Wichita Eagle, which detailed Marshall’s reckless driving incident.

According to court documents from Christmas Eve in 2008, Assistant Barton County Attorney Carey Fleske came before a district court judge and made a simple request: expunge Marshall’s conviction that he received in the fall for reckless driving and replace it with a lesser offense.

As The Wichita Eagle article noted, “The judge agreed, turning a suspended jail sentence for the future Kansas Congressman and Republican U.S. Senate candidate into a slap on the wrist.”

In addition, the article pointed out that “Fleske was more than a prosecutor. He was also the son of Marshall’s business partner and neighbor.”

Marshall originally received charges for reckless driving and battery following a May 2008 incident where he allegedly hit a Great Bend resident with his truck. The issue was settled through a civil lawsuit outside of court. Mashall insists that he did not hit the man.

The incident came up again during Marshall’s 2016 campaign for Congress, when Representative Tim Huelskamp dropped an ad featuring audio of the 911 phone call. Marshall’s connection to the prosecutor was never covered during that case. After a number of stories dropped, the incident ended up falling out of the spotlight and Marshall proceeded to win the western Kansas seat.

Four years later, Marshall is running for an even more prestigious seat.

His campaign has still offered vague explanations about the reduction in charges or Marshall’s connection to the prosecutor.

Marshall is one of America First candidate Kris Kobach’s primary rivals for Kansas’s vacant Senate seat.

Because of Kobach’s staunch immigration patriotism, the political establishment will do everything it can to downplay Marshall’s questionable past and try to attack Marshall as much as possible;

Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting

The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.

Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.

The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.

The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.

It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
