Though she may deny it, Kansas Sen. Julia Lynns resignation Friday from her job with Inclusion Works is a pretty clear admission that, at the very least, her role as chairwoman of the Senate Commerce Committee could have worked to the benefit of her former employer.
Since 2016, the state has awarded Allied Global Services, the parent company of Inclusion Works, more than $13.3 million in government contracts.
Lynn, a Republican from Olathe, has participated in meetings discussing state contracts with AGS, which provides information technology services. Of special note is a 2017 meeting that included Lynn, AGS officials and Antonio Soave, Kansass Commerce Secretary at the time, to discuss a possible contract to deal with a data breach into the departments system.
