Political Fallout Over Sebeliusâ€™ Remark About Guard?
J.J. Jackson | May 10, 2007
There are rumblings that Kansas Governor Sebeliusâ€™ remarks about how recovery efforts post the massive tornado that destroyed Greensburg were coerced by Howard Dean and the upper levels of the Democratic Party and were in direct contradiction to the facts.
Several readers this morning have already commented to me that Jim Quinn, political talk show host based here in Pittsburgh from 104.7 WPGB, has cited a source with authority on the subject that Howard Dean personally called the Governor to set the wheels in motion for her to claim that efforts were being hampered by lack of equipment due to the war in Iraq.
The story is plausible because both Senator Sam Brownback and the White House have issued conflicting stories where, after contacting officials in the state, they were told there were plenty of resources for the recovery effort.
The source claims that Sebeliuss called Senator Brownback to express her regret over the remarks and reassure him that they were not her own feelings but that rather those of the Democratic leadership.
This is developing and so far has not been confirmed.Â Stay tuned.Â I have contacted both the Senator and the Governor for comment but have not recieved any.
