One Seat Majority

Kansas Board of Education Chair Steve Abrams is standing by embattled school board member Connie Morris who recently repaid $2,900 in questionable expenses she'd claimed for a Miami Beach magnet school conference that included a $339 suite at the Fontainebleau Hilton Resort.

Why is Abrams backing the values challenged Morris? Bluff City resident Frank Smith, who has examined Morris' expense report thinks he knows why:

"The taxpayers are not being represented by Dr. Abrams, and the reason is, I think, he needs the votes," Smith said. "His problem is, he's got a one-seat majority. If one seat changes, he's got an impasse and that's not what he wants, so he's doing his best to protect her. It's very unfortunate."
