COLBY, Kan. - What is the real Republican administration's agenda? I just received the following information in an email message from the KDP. If you are not on their mailing list, this message should alert you to get on it.
BREAKING: The Resurrection of Phill Kline
TOPEKA, KS - Kansans received an unwelcome Christmas Eve gift last Friday. Secretary of State Elect Kris Kobach announced the hiring of his top lieutenant on the day before a long holiday weekend, effectively burying it. It's news worth hiding. Kobach chose Eric Rucker, the long-time top lieutenant to disgraced former Attorney General Phill Kline. In fact, Mr. Rucker is still being investigated for his involvement in the invasion of thousands of Kansans' medical privacy.
It gets worse. Today, Governor Elect Sam Brownback announced his chief counsel would be another top Phill Kline lieutenant, Caleb Stegall. This is nothing short of the resurrection of Phill Kline. Phill Kline was thrown from office just four years ago because he violated the medical privacy of Kansans in pursuit of his own extreme political agenda. Phill Kline is the poster child of an entire political era defined by Republicans using state government to further divisive social issues.
That era is back. Sam Brownback and Kris Kobach have taught Kansans a tough lesson. The "new" Republican Party is the same as the old Republican Party. They are more interested in furthering extreme political agendas and fighting for special interests then in rebuilding our state's economy, providing world-class schools for our children and creating jobs for everyday Kansans.
