Report: Governor Repays Running Mate for Loans

KSAL StaffJanuary 9, 2016

A new report shows Republican Gov. Sam Brownback has made a final $100,000 repayment on loans from his running mate to their re-election campaign.

Three loans from Lieutenant Governor Jeff Colyer totaling $1.5 million were the subject of a federal grand jury investigation last year. No charges were filed.

The campaign also repaid the governor and his wife $100,000, half of what they loaned to the campaign in October 2014.

The Brownback campaign listed the transactions in a finance report filed Friday, covering all of last year.

After his re-election, the Brownback campaign received nearly $578,000 in contributions last year. It spent $574,000.

More than $167,000 went to legal fees paid to various law firms.

The campaign reported it had $51,385 at the end of the year.
