The former state senator was elected to the governors office last year with a simple message. Allow us to summarize: I will clean up the mess left by former Gov. Sam Brownback. I will bring a no-nonsense, solutions-oriented approach to state government and work with everyone to make Kansas better.
Thats why news last week that Kelly was asking a court to remove her from a class-action lawsuit over the states treatment of children in foster care is so dismaying. Her lawyers argue that she doesnt actually run the system and shouldnt be sued.
