Former top Brownback staffer backing KFL campaign

David Kensinger, Gov. Sam Brownback’s former chief of staff, is helping finance the Kansans for Life political action committee, the Kansas City Star reported. His consulting firm gave $15,000 to the PAC on July 31 – the PAC’s largest donation this year. So is it just a coincidence that the PAC endorsed most of the candidates backed by the Governor’s Office and anti-tax groups? KFL has said there was no connection, even though several of the incumbents targeted for defeat by the Governor’s Office and not endorsed by KFL – such as Sen. Carolyn McGinn, R-Sedgwick – have lengthy pro-life voting and advocacy records.
