Topeka Kansas House Democratic Leader Paul Davis says Republican Gov. Sam Brownback's campaign fund should reimburse the state for the costs of a brochure about income tax cuts mailed to 146,000 business owners.
Davis held a news conference Friday to criticize the brochure and suggest it represents electioneering. The Department of Revenue began mailing them Wednesday, six days before next week's election.
Davis called on Brownback to tap his campaign funds to reimburse the department for the $52,000 it spent to print and mail the brochures.
Brownback spokeswoman Sherriene Jones-Sontag ignored that comment and said the brochures were designed to educate business owners about the tax cuts enacted earlier this year.
The brochure answers questions about the tax cuts. But it also quotes a complimentary Wall Street Journal editorial.
