TOPEKA, Kan- The campaign for Kansas gubernatorial candidate Paul Davis has pulled a television ad after it was revealed an actor was once arrested on sex charges and banned from the Boy Scouts of America.

Documents released by the Kansas GOP show Jeff Montague was arrested for solicitation of sodomy in Topeka's Gage Park in 2007. Another document shows Montague resigned from the Boy Scouts of America after it was revealed he was suspended from a teaching job after allegations of sexual advances to a male student.

The Kansas GOP called on Davis to remove the ad. Davis released a statement this afternoon;

"Today, it was brought to our attention that a participant in one of those ads has serious issues in his background. Upon hearing of these issues, the ad, which ran for a few hours, was pulled down immediately. I want to apologize to Kansans for this mistake.”
