The Relentless Lies of Gov. Sam Brownback
All politicians spin. They exaggerate and make selective use of facts and data. These are tricks of the trade.
But I have never seen a public official lie as easily and as relentlessly as Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback.
That sounds harsh, and it is possible that Brownback actually believes his own mythology. But much of what he has told the citizens of Kansas is flat out wrong.
Brownback has lied about the fiscal conditions he inherited. He spins a fantasy about a low-tax utopia even as his state is exhausting its budget reserves, staring at more cuts in education, and not experiencing the promised economic rebound. He has salted his administration with sycophants who tell lies of their own.

Voters who are alarmed about the direction in which Kansas is headed should look closely at the slate of candidates running for legislative seats in the House. In making recommendations in selected contested races, The Star is supporting candidates who are most likely to help reverse some of the harmful policies of the recent past and invest in the state’s schools and citizens.

The Kansas City Star endorsed Kansas Democrats in 14 of the 19 state legislative races in Kansas City Metro.

  • District 8: Democrat Jodie Dietz
  • District 14: Democrat Merlin Ring
  • District 16: Democrat Don McGuire
  • District 17: Democrat Larry Meeker
  • District 18: Democrat Cindy Neighbor
  • District 20: Democrat Elizabeth Arnold
  • District 22: Incumbent Democrat Nancy Lusk
  • District 24: Democrat Jarrod Ousley
  • District 29: Democrat Heather Meyer
  • District 33: Democrat Tom Burroughs
  • District 36: Incumbent Democrat Kathy Wolfe Moore
  • District 38: Democrat Jan Pringle
  • District 39: Democrat Vicki Hiatt
  • District 43: Democrat Caitlin Trujillo

Brownback Education Plan

Sam Brownback’s failed education plan in Kansas.

"Of all the politicians I have covered in more than four decades, starting with a campaign trip with Richard Nixon in 1968, I have never run across a meaner, nastier, more egomaniacal politician than Kris Kobach."

Let’s send Kris Kobach to political oblivion
