Brownback’s GOP challenger has bankruptcy in past

July 30, 2014


— A Wichita businesswoman who is challenging Gov. Sam Brownback in the Republican primary has filed for bankruptcy protection in the past, while her running mate has done so twice.

Jennifer Winn tells The Wichita Eagle she was going through a divorce and not receiving child support when she filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2004, facing more than $79,000 in debts.

Winn, who owns a landscaping business, says she filed after losing her home and a truck.

Her running mate, Robin Lais, filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy in 1997 and again in 2002.

The single mother says the first bankruptcy was caused by medical bills for her daughter, who has epilepsy. The second came when clients of her advertising business went out of business and she was not paid.

She has earned her own way and didn't have to marry to make a buck! It appeared she has done her best to be a true job creator.

Brownback is bankrupting Kansas, and that is the bigger story.

Sounds of desperation coming from Brownback campaign, digging up anything to smear anyone who dares run against him. He's on a mission from his "god" to run Kansas as a theocracy.

Brownback is placing Kansas on the bankruptcy chopping block and Brownback was in Washington D.C. watching Bush/Cheney cook up the second GOP home loan scandal that has put nation in a financial disaster that has cost millions of hard working Americans their jobs.

And those two home loan scandals have truly screwed up the job market for college grads. Which in essence place grads in the unemployment line immediately upon graduation.

Which in essence places the GOP in the back of the line when it comes to financial giants of our time.

Meanwhile there is still all of this damage that will not go away until Brownback is gone from Kansas.

I am sure the bankrupties are Obama's fault.
