Kansas Governor Sebilius is in hot water for stalling emergency aid to tornado victims.

NEWS ALERT----BREAKING STORY Kansas Democrat Governor Kathleen Sebilius was blaming President Bush for the slow response time because according to her, "our National Guard humvees, flatbed vehicles, and trained personnel are all stuck in Iraq". She stated those comments hours before the arrival of the President to Greensburg. According to sources close to Kansas Presidential candidate Senator Brownback, Sen. Brownback questioned her why she waited so long to deploy the troops and equipment to this town and most of all, why she got in front of the main stream media and stated it was President Bush's fault. According to sources, Gov. Sebilius said she was called by Howard Dean (Head of the Democrat Party) at 5:00 a.m. and was told to hold off any emergency response to Greensburg until he called back. Howard Dean called back and told her to get in front of the television camera's and blame the slow response by her office on the war in Iraq due to having some of Kansas's National Guard's troops fighting overseas. Then she tried to explain herself to Senator Brownback by saying, "it's such a political climate" these days. She politicized a tragedy at the expense of Kansas people that most likely elected her and are suffering the worst disaster in their life.

We at Patriotic Thunder, reported that their is approximately over 6,000 National Guard Troops stationed in Kansas. Only 500 of them are stationed overseas with their equipment. We also reported that all Gov. Sebelius has to do is file the federal forms to FEMA and she will get her equipment and personnel within the hours. However, now we know the rest of the story, that she LIED to Kansas's, LIED to the nation, most importantly showed she works for the Democrat Party and not the People of Kansas who elected her, and the most disgusting, LIED to the devastated people of Greensburg, KS. How disgusting and putrid can one political hack be to wait on giving aid to tornado victims because you wanted to make it politically correct. We want and deserve answers, we want to know why Gov. Sebilius you LIED to us all.

Wasn’t this horse out the gate early this morning?

Is this a repeat or is there something new?

Need some corroboration to your story. I don’t doubt you but “sources close to Brownback” is shaky.

I’ll hold my fire until Sam Brownback or a reputable media source confirms this claim.

Sean Hannity dealt with this today. If true, Gov. Sebilius and Howard Dean both need to resign.

How can we get the media to jump on this?

By not watching, listening or reading the media.

hmmm, now where did I see something like this before?

When the State and Local govt was sitting on their collective @sses and waiting for Washington to do their job for them in a time of disaster/emergency and then tried to blame Pres Bush for their failures by making up lies...

Hurricane Katrina and Lousianna comes to mind.......

Harry Reid Jumps Into Tornado Politics Even After Governor Backtracks (Video)
http://gatewaypundit.blogspot.com/2007/05/harry-reid-jumps-into-tornado-politics.html

Even after the outlandish claims by the Kansas democratic governor were totally debunked...
Harry Reid jumps into the tornado politics.

Yesterday BDS blasted Kansas big time as democratic governor Kathleen Sebelius charged that the Iraq War was affecting the cleanup in Kansas after the killer tornado... This was quickly debunked and the governor later backtracked from her original claims when it was revealed that only 10% of the available Kansas guard members were called to the tornado cleanup.

Story is false (FR thread pulled around 9:58 am discussing the cease and desist leter from DNC lawyers)

http://hotair.com/archives/2007/05/10/did-howard-dean-order-ks-gov-to-lie-about-femas-response-to-the-greensburg-tornado/

Update: Brownback says no, making it 3 for 3.

Update: The DNC just emailed me two documents, one a letter to XM and the other a letter to Free Republic. In both letters, the DNC denies without equivocation that the conversation between Dean and Sebelius ever took place. Both are C&D notices from the DNC’s lawyers.

The statement made by Mr. Quinn is demonstrable, unequivocally, and absolutely false. Governor Dean had no such conversation with Governor Sebelius, ever.

That’s about as flat a denial as one can get, though it’s interesting that they would resort to C&D notices to combat this story and characterize it as “libelous” and “slanderous” and “interfering with the DNC’s operations and ability to solicit support and raise funds.” The Democrats as a party have been libeling and slandering President Bush with impunity for years. Perhaps the RNC should start slapping them with C&Ds.

But getting back to this story, both Gov. Sebelius and the DNC are flatly denying that the conversation between Dean and Sebelius took place as described. So consider this story killed.

You're right. The dnc is such a paragon of honesty I always let them tell me what is true and what isn't.

Until we get someone that says “I was there, I heard the phone call” I would suggest we get better intel before making charges.

Why?

Seriously, did it stop the DNC from pushing the Rather Memo story? Have they ever stopped smearing Laura Bush about her car accident that killed a former boyfriend?

So they issued a C&D, big whoop. I can get a lawyer to issue a C&D to my neighbor for eating peanutbutter and jelly.

This story is new, time will tell if it’s true or not but I wouldn’t trust the dnc to tell me it was raining outside without having a look for myself.

The truth is Governor Sibelius came out and blamed "W" before saying anything else.

No doubt she's so stupid she did that on her own and didn't wait for Dr. Dean.

Time for her to resign in either case.
