Statehouse Live: Union members kicked out of Kansas House gallery during vote

As a union carpenter I am deeply disturbed by Anthony Brown's involvement in this. I remember Mr. Brown asking the carpenters union to make a political contribution to his campaign. I remember voting on this and him recieving said contribution. Tens of thousands of dollars of our (and his) money helped finance his campaigns. I also remember Mr. Brown turning around and sticking it to us after he was elected. I wonder if this bill is more about his personal feelings or as revenge for never recieving any more money from the unions? The second fact Mr. Brown has wrong is he in fact did have an opt out on where his money went. I do not remember anyone forcing him, myself or any other member to sign the Dues Authorization Card when he joined.
