TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ A state senator is returning a donation he received from Hallmark because of the greeting card company's decision to close its Topeka plant. Senator Anthony Hensley, a Democrat, says he'll return the $500 donation from Hallmark he received this week. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that Hallmark announced this week that it's consolidating operations in Topeka, Leavenworth and Lawrence. The move is expected to cut about 300 employees. Hensley said his wife worked at the Topeka plant for 19 years as an assembly employee. He says he cannot accept a campaign contribution from a company that's leaving Topeka. Casey Moore, Hensley's Republican opponent in the upcoming election, says Hensley is right to return the donation. But he says it would have been better Henlsey "had worked to keep jobs here.''
