|The director of the Kansas Budget Division issued a public apology Monday for an errant spending statistic that Gov. Sam Brownback has used for months to claim credit for state spending cuts that never happened. A top Democratic leader said he will call for an investigation to find out how such a big error went unchallenged for so long. 'It's gargantuan,' Senate Minority Leader Anthony Hensley, D-Topeka, said of the error. 'I think it has a dire effect on their credibility. I feel like they've been fast and loose with the numbers since, well, ever since their administration started.'|
