Sam Brownback had a purge in mind, and the Kansas Chamber of Commerce gladly provided the resources to knock out then-Senate President Steve Morris and other moderates in the Kansas Senate. Had the Legislature gladly toed the governor’s line on budgets and spending in 2013, the narrative would have been supported. But something odd happened on the way to full control: The Kansas Chamber decided to pull some strings itself.
