TOPEKA -- Shawnee County’s district attorney has asked the county’s sheriff’s office to investigate whether a Kansas congressman voted illegally in Topeka’s city election last month.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reported Tuesday that Rep. Steve Watkins, R-Kansas, changed his voter registration in August to the address of a UPS store in Topeka. The address, located in the 8th City Council District, was the one he used in November’s election when the winner of the council race was decided by just 13 votes.
