The Omaha World-Herald is reporting that U.S. Sen. Mike Johanns is among those accused in a report by the U.S. Office of Special Counsel of using his office as ag secretary to promote Republican candidates in 2006.

Which would be illegal.

Johanns is vehemently denying it; saying expenses were reimbursed for questioned trips to New Mexico, Arizona and Minnesota. The World-Herald says Johanns showed them proof the expenses were reimbursed.
