Senate Democratic Leader: Brownback's proclamation a "diversion tactic"

Kansas Sen. Anthony Hensley, the Senate Democratic Leader, issued a statement after Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback signed a proclamation for a special session of the Kansas Legislature.

Full statement:
“Governor Sam Brownback held a news conference this afternoon for a celebratory signing of the proclamation to bring the Kansas Legislature back for a special session on September 3rd at a cost of $40,000 per day to Kansas taxpayers.
“This is an unprecedented diversion tactic. It’s pretty clear that Governor Brownback is putting on a show so he can deflect peoples’ attention away from the controversy surrounding his selection of a nominee for the Kansas Court of Appeals."
