Trial Exhibit: 2020 Board Member Email Exchange Re: Phil Journey’s Board Candidacy

February 2, 2024

Filing Summary

In February 2020, Marion Hammer forwarded select board members an online article by fellow board member Phil Journey, and implied that he is not trustworthy. Hammer wrote: “I couldn’t care less that about [sic] his service in the Kansas Legislature (how many politicians/legislators do you really trust?) I couldn’t care less that he’s a ‘black-robe-wearing judge’ (how many judges do you trust with your rights and your freedom?)” Board member Sandra Froman replied, writing: “Just so you all know, I happen to disagree with Marion on Phil Journey’s suitability for the board.” Docket number 2870.
