Bacon Files

According to the Kansas Secretary of State's Office, incumbent State School Board member John Bacon filed to run for re-election yesterday. Bacon is part of the right-wing majority that pushed through creationist and intelligent design inspired revisions to the state's science standards, appointed Bob Corkins Education Commissioner, and voted for opt-in sex education classes -- a logistical nightmare for already underfunded school districts around the state.

He will be opposed in the August primary by moderate Republican Harry McDonald, a retired teacher and former president of Kansas Citizens for Science, and David Oliphant, a Republican.

Democrat Don Weiss will face the winner in the November general election.
