When Fairway, Kansas high school senior Emma Sullivan took a school trip to the state capital, she sent a critical tweet of Governor Brownback - including the hash tag #heblowsalot. The Governor's staff contacted the school to complain about the tweet and now Sullivan's school is demanding she write an apology letter to the Republican politician. Sullivan is refusing to do so. No word yet on what the school's next step will be, but since the story has broken nationwide, both school administrators and Brownback's office have been the object of scorn.
