TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) A Kansas prosecutor is taking a few more days to wrap up his investigation of private meetings between Gov. Sam Brownback and state legislators at the governor’s official residence.
An assistant says Shawnee County District Attorney Chad Taylor expects to report his findings next week. Initially, the report was expected by Friday night.
Brownback held seven dinner meetings in January at Cedar Crest with members of 13 legislative committees, most of them fellow Republicans.
Taylor, a Democrat, has been investigating whether the gatherings violated the state’s open meeting laws.
Many legislators have described the dinners as social events. Brownback has expressed confidence that no laws were broken.
But the governor has acknowledged he set up the meetings to discuss his legislative agenda and took questions from lawmakers.
