Gov. Sam Brownback and Rep. Lynn Jenkins, R-Topeka, shared a stage with first lady Michelle Obama at the event with high school graduates observing the 60th anniversary of the Brown v. Topeka Board of Education decision ending school desegregation. Former Gov. Kathleen Sebelius was on hand as well. Later, Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Fowler, had this to say on the subject via social media: “@MichelleObama the real bigotry in America is towards people of faith. Ask your co-speaker Kathleen Sebelius about that.” The “real bigotry”? At least Huelskamp joined the rest of the Kansas House delegation and many other members of Congress in signing Jenkins’ letter to the superintendent of the Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site commemorating the anniversary and expressing the hope that the site “will continue to provide the opportunity for future generations to visit and take part in the search for justice and equality for all Americans.”
