Congresswoman-elect Lynn Jenkins' husband files for divorce

The husband of the newly elected congresswoman from Kansas' 2nd District has filed for divorce after 25 years of marriage.

Scott Jenkins filed the documents Friday in Shawnee County District Court, saying that he and his wife, Lynn Jenkins, were "incompatible."

He's seeking joint custody of their two children, with the children's primary residence being with their mother. He's also seeking an equitable division of their assets.

The couple was married June 25, 1983, in Holton.

The filing came three days after Jenkins defeated incumbent Democrat Rep. Nancy Boyda for the 2nd District seat. Jenkins, a Republican, was elected state treasurer in 2002.

A spokesman for the campaign declined to comment about the matter, saying it was a personal issue.
