Brownback's Ties to Engle Becoming An Issue In Kansas Gov. Race

Late last year we wrote a post based on a video posted by Bruce Wilson in which Lou Engle explained how he had come to live with Sen. Sam Brownback for seven months:

As I was mobilizing for Boston I said to kids in California ‘we need to dig the dwells of revival in Harvard and close the door of false ideologies that have come through Boston’. Amazingly a week later, I received a phone call from the US Senator from Kansas, Senator Sam Brownback, he’s a godly man. He calls me up, he says ‘Lou, I’m in England, you need to dig the dwells of revival in Harvard and close the door of false ideologies that have come through Boston’. Almost word for word. A Senator was prophesizing me, glory to God.

In fact, it was prophesized to me that I would be connected with a man named Senator Sam Brownback from Kansas. But I forgot about the prophecy, so when I rented a condo in DC to mobilize for The Call, a week later I received a phone call from the owner of the condo and he said ‘there’s a man named Senator Sam Brownback. His condo just burnt down, he wants to know if he could stay in your condo’. I became the room mate of Senator Brownback for 7 months. We began to get dreams that he would be the president of the United States and right now, who knows? We are praying.

Now, via Frederick Clarkson, we see that the Kansas Democratic Party is making this an issue in the race for Governor, asking people to sign a petition demanding that Brownback denounce and distance himself from Engle:

“This is the type of behavior one would expect from Fred Phelps – not from someone who has the ear of Kansas’ most ambitious politician. We are calling on Senator Brownback to denounce Lou Engle for his hateful rhetoric and extreme agenda,” said Kenny Johnston, Executive Director of the Kansas Democratic Party, “If this is the sort of company Brownback keeps, it speaks volumes about the kind of Governor he would be.”

The next Governor of Kansas needs a laser-like focus on creating quality jobs. We can't afford to let a strong and lasting economic recovery be jeopardized by divisive and narrow interests. Now, more than ever, Kansans can't afford an out-of-touch Washington politician who will open the doors of Ceder Crest to extremists like Lou Engle.

In order to demonstrate that he will focus on policies that unite Kansans to solve the challenges that confront our state Sam Brownback needs to demonstrate his independence from right-wing extremists, and strongly denounce Lou Engle.
