I am very sad to see that Governor Brownback is wasting our tax dollars attacking the rights of a high school student! I feel like this is nothing but bullying and an abuse of power!

So the office of the governor called the principals office to tattle on a highschooler? Classic! Governor-"mrs crabapple suzy called me a name" effing classic!

Two comments.. intersting. This teenager spoke her truth to power - even if she didn't do it to the man's face (a measure of courage I hope she achieves sooner rather than later) and the governor of the state took the time and resources to have her censured? Is Kansas really doing that well that it's taxpayer dollars can be wasted on the governor's public relations beat down? Really?

All glory to the King. Get a copy of the U.S. Constitution a must read for all high school students. I don't know if you suck, but I do wonder why a comment made by a high school teenager made you so mad that you tried to do an end run around her civil rights. I have nothing against you but more and more of your ilk thinks that they have the right to call people names and that the people can not fire back at you. You are a servant get over yourself. The general public is not a bunch of goof balls. If you do not suck then she got her laugh at her expense and not yours. Imagine how many like such comments are being made every day about you and other politicians out of the public light. Your office is to blame because they do not comprehend that with new technology comes more responsiblity. Since she was a high school student they should have just ignored her. People in your position should become aware that as technology grows you will recieve more and more of these remarks, and you should keep in mind that under our laws it is the right of the citizens to speak their minds. Your staffs demand for an apology is a direct abuse of your office. It would be the schools responsibility to punish her, but even they can not order her to apologize. This seems more like a case for after school detention for a day. And the detention would not be for her comment, but for being disruptive at a school function.
