Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe on Thursday made it official: David Morrison is facing expulsion from his position as a Prairie Village City Councilor.
Morrison maintains that, while his decision to let a homeless friend with a drug problem and a criminal record stay unaccompanied overnight at Prairie Village City Hall was a poor one, it was motivated by good intentions. Moreover, he insists that behind closed doors his peers on the council were split over whether to recommend his ouster or not — despite the fact they voted unanimously in public to seek his removal.
The civil case brought by Howe will be heard in Kansas’s Tenth District Court by Judge David Hauber.
