Brownie Is Back (Sort Of)

Bryan Brown hasn’t forgotten about Kansas, especially the state’s jails.

Brown, the former head of the Consumer Protection Division in then-Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline’s office, skipped town earlier this year after Kline lost a re-election bid to Paul Morrison. Brown reportedly left the Sunflower State to start his own law firm in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

But Brown has kept his thoughts on Kansas – and distaste for Johnson County Sun columnist Steve Rose – alive on his blog. Brown reminisces about the 68 days he spent in the hoosegow on a contempt of court charge in 1992 for violating a federal judge’s injunction that barred protestors from blocking the entrances to an abortion clinic.
