This group is closely tied to our former Queen Kathleen and the Democrats' likely candidate for governor, Larry Gates.
From the KC Star:
Its board of directors includes state Democratic Party Chairman Larry Gates and University of Kansas Athletics Director Lew Perkins. Supreme Court Justice Dan Biles was a board member but resigned; he was appointed to the high court by then-Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, a Democrat.Democrats constantly rant about how "independent" Steve Six has been in his appointed gig as AG. Well then step up to the plate Mr. Six and investigate members of your own party -- even if it damages their electoral chances in 2010. Let's have some transparency and accountability in our government, Mr. Six. We have a feeling this won't be the last of many shady dealings that will be uncovered from the Sebelius Administration.

The situation looks more suspect because the group’s board included Democratic Party chairman Larry Gates and others with ties to then-Gov. Kathleen Sebelius.
