The Kansas City Star reports:
Kansas Rep. Mark Samsel said “God works in mysterious ways” when confronted by law enforcement officers over a bruise he allegedly gave a student while he was substitute teaching in April, according to a newly-released court document.
The Wellsville Republican faces three misdemeanor battery charges involving two approximately 16-year-old victims from an April 28 incident at the city’s high school. Numerous videos taken by students that day show Samsel ranting about God, the Bible, masturbation and suicide.
One student told police Samsel kicked him in the crotch. Samsel also told investigators he was following instructions from God.
