Kansas Rep. Watkins pays account after foreclosure lawsuit

Kansas

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – Republican Kansas Rep. Steve Watkins has paid what he owed to a homeowners association in Alaska that was seeking to foreclose on his condominium.

A lawsuit alleges the first-term congressman owed the Loch Ness Manor Condominium Association $1,535 as of Oct. 1.

Watkins did not respond Thursday when contacted by The Associated Press, but an email sent the next day by his property manager shows he called them that day to discuss the situation. The email, provided to the AP by Watkins’ office, says his account is now in good standing.

The lawsuit sought foreclosure of his condominium in Eagle River, outside of Anchorage.

Records show the condo assessed at $166,500. The financial disclosure Watkins filed in May indicate he received between $5,000 and $15,000 in rental income from it in 2018.
