Allegations Arise Concerning Kansas Governor's Brother

Governor Sam Brownback’s brother, Jim Brownback, has been involved in some long-running disputes with neighbors in Linn County, in eastern Kansas. Tim Carpenter, a reporter with the Topeka Capital-Journal, says there are questions about whether Jim Brownback has benefited from his connection to the state’s most powerful politician. Carpenter wrote about the allegations in an article published over the weekend. Carpenter told KPR's Stephen Koranda that one dispute started when a dog owned by Jim Brownback’s family was put down after mauling some hogs owned by his neighbors, the Peine family. The Peines say the dog incident has led to harassment - and worse - against them by Jim Brownback.

That’s Tim Carpenter speaking with KPR’s Stephen Koranda. Carpenter's full story on Jim Brownback is available on the Topeka Capital-Journal’s website.
