Report: Lobbyist Still Influences Governor

KSAL StaffMay 21, 2015

A newspaper is reporting that email records show David Kensinger, Gov. Sam Brownback’s former chief of staff, continues to have influence on the administration even after he became a lobbyist.

The Brownback administration disagrees with that contention. The governor said in October he rarely speaks with Kensinger about policy.

The Wichita Eagle reports that it requested all emails between the governor’s office staff and Kensinger since he left the administration in 2012. However, the administration cited several exemptions in withholding some emails and redacting others.

The emails show Kensinger was consulted on several matters, such as a bill seeking state control over federal health dollars.

Kensinger did not immediately return a call from The Associated Press Thursday seeking comment.
