TOPEKA, Kan. - Kansas Libertarians were stopped from holding a fundraiser at a nudist camp in southwest Shawnee County, when sheriff's deputies blocked people from entering.It would be tough to find a way to make Libertarians' points about private property rights better than to Catch-22 their political fundraisers under zoning laws. You must have a permit to meet, but we won't issue you one. Come back when we're not here and we'll be happy to see that you get one.
Shawnee County deputies said they were merely enforcing a court order when they stopped people from accessing Lake Edun on Friday. Last year, Shawnee County District Judge Terry Bullock issued a court order banning "commercial or recreational activities" on the property unless the owners get a permit for such events - something the county refuses to provide.
