Kansas Sen. Brownback accused of hypocrisy over stimulus project

Democratic leaders in the Kansas Legislature are accusing U.S. Sen. Sam Brownback of hypocrisy over federal economic-stimulus spending for a rail spur, claiming he is trying to take credit for something he opposed. The funding for the rail spur was part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the $787 billion economic stimulus bill passed in February and backed mainly by President Obama and congressional Democrats. Brownback voted against the bill and spoke in opposition to it in the Senate.
