— The first family of Kansas closed out 2011 with a happy celebration.

Gov. Sam Brownback escorted his daughter Abby Christine Brownback down the aisle of a Topeka church Saturday afternoon for her wedding to Eric Teetsel.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the private ceremony took place at the First Presbyterian Church, where the governor and his wife, Mary, were married 29 years ago.

Abby Brownback is an education reporter for The Gazette, a weekly newspaper in Maryland’s Prince George’s County. She holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Kansas State University and a master’s in public affairs reporting from the University of Maryland.

Well, I hope it works out well for the couple. I also hope that IF her new husband should turn out to be a spouse abuser, that her dad won't mandate she stay married, since he wants that for the rest of us.

Nobody is dumping on her personally. She didn't get to choose her parents. Seems she has made herself a good life for herself in spite of brownie being her father. Bet she wishes she could deny who her father is.

Seriously people? Dumping on the daughter of a politician -- that is just wrong. Stop it.

No mention of the reception being held at the governors mansion. How much tax payer money funded the extra officers for security? There was at least two highway patrol cars at the driveway entrance. Congratulations to the happy couple, as long as Sam paid for all the extras on his own dime.

Interesting time of year for a wedding. I rather like the idea. Seems like a nice way to head into the new year. I wish the couple nothing but a lifetime of happiness.

Adult children of politicians become fair game in the political arena when they stump for their parent. Minor children of politicians and adult children who do not rally the voters for their parent should be left in peace.
I've never heard of this young lady, though I admit I haven't paid much attention to the governor's family. Giving her the benefit, I'll make no mention of Rev. Phelps or any other political, social, economic issue and just wish her and family well on the joyous day of her wedding. Mazel Tov.

Why get married when you're a master of affairs?
