Please tell me that the blowback for Brownback on this has seriously done him some political damage:
FAIRWAY, Kan. – Eighteen-year-old Emma Sullivan never thought her tweet about a field trip would be seen by Gov. Sam Brownback. The Shawnee Mission East High School senior went to the Capitol and heard Brownback speak. She didn’t like what she heard.
“I don’t agree with a majority of the things that he is trying to pass,” said Sullivan.
Sullivan tweeted her thoughts about what she wanted to do during the speech.
Sullivan’s tweet stated: “just made mean comments at gov brownback and told him he sucked, in person #heblowsalot.”
Sullivan said she ended up in the principal’s office the next day.
“He explained to me that someone from Brownback’s office got a hold of it and sent it to someone in charge of the district,” said Sullivan.
She said her principal wants her to write an apology to Brownback
Any politician who thinks it’s okay to bully a high school student for having a political opinion should be an object of both disgust and derision.
