Kansas lawmaker arrested after allegedly kneeing student in groin, asking about kids’ sex life on video

Samsel, 36, was arrested Thursday on charges of misdemeanor battery after school officials in Wellsville, Kan., reported an unspecified “incident” between him and a student, the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office said. As videos — some of which The Washington Post obtained — circulated and made the news, parents and community members expressed alarm and outrage that Samsel was working with young people and representing them in the state House.
