Topeka – Kansas Governor Sam Brownback issued the following statement today regarding the tweet by Emma Sullivan:


“My staff over-reacted to this tweet, and for that I apologize. Freedom of speech is among our most treasured freedoms.

I enjoyed speaking to the more than 100 students who participated in the Youth in Government Program at the Kansas Capitol. They are our future.


I also want to thank the thousands of Kansas educators who remind us daily of our liberties, as well as the values of civility and decorum.


Again, I apologize for our over-reaction.”
