Kan. gov. confident meetings didn't violate law
Kan. gov. says he's confident investigation of meetings with lawmakers will find no wrongdoing
By The Associated Press

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) ' Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback says he's confident that a prosecutor's investigation of meetings he had with lawmakers at his official residence will find no wrongdoing.

And he's planning two more gatherings next week.

The Republican governor told reporters Friday that he will fully cooperate with Shawnee County District Attorney Chad Taylor, a Democrat.

Taylor has sent a letter to Brownback's office and all legislators, directing them to preserve records and electronic files that could be potential evidence. Most of the letters were received Friday.

Brownback invited GOP lawmakers from 13 legislative committees to seven dinners in January. The governor's staff has said the events did not violate the Kansas Open Meetings Act because they were social gatherings and Brownback admonished legislators to avoid discussions that would violate the law.
