FBI Probes Lobbying by Brownback Loyalists

The FBI "is exploring whether confidantes of Gov. Sam Brownback (R) operated influence-peddling operations in Kansas pivoting on personal access to the Republican governor and top administration officials," the Topeka Capital Journal reports.

"Of concern to the FBI were behind-the-scenes financial arrangements related to Brownback's privatization of the state's $3 billion Medicaid program. The governor's branding of KanCare handed to three for-profit insurance companies exclusive contracts to provide Medicaid services to 380,000 of Kansas' disabled and poor."
