Kansas Budget Director's Email Access Draws Scrutiny

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Records show the Kansas budget director had access to his state email during a holiday last year when he also sent a policy document on a personal email account. The Wichita Eagle reports that records show Budget Director Shawn Sullivan had access to his state email around Christmas 2014 when he used his private account to email a draft of the governor's budget and tax plan to two lobbyists. When Sullivan was asked earlier why he used private email for that purpose, he said it was because he was home. Brownback spokeswoman Eileen Hawley responded for Sullivan, saying Sullivan used a private email to send the budget information because his work phone didn't support more involved emails, and that Sullivan now uses a work laptop for sending such out-of-office messages.
