Kansas House Speaker Mike O'Neal has named three Republicans and three Democrats to review a complaint filed by legislators against a Wichita Democrat accused of misleading the chamber during floor debate.

A group of 26 Republicans filed the complaint against Rep. Jim Ward. They allege he intentionally misled legislators about the true meaning of an amendment he made to a property tax bill last month.

The potential punishments that the panel could consider include removing Ward from the Legislature.

O'Neal, a Hutchinson Republican, named Republican Reps. Clark Shultz of Lindsborg, Joe Patton of Topeka and Lance Kinzer of Olathe to the panel. Democrats named were Reps. Jan Pauls of Hutchinson, Ed Trimmer of Winfield and Mike Slattery of Mission.
