Kansas attorney general gives Gov. Laura Kelly until Friday to drop welfare plan..

What a worthless p.o.s....Another winger hateful of helping the needy..The handjob isn't even real sure whether her plan "violates either the letter or spirit of state law"...

Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt is giving Gov. Laura Kelly an ultimatum: Drop your plan to keep people on welfare by Friday or Iím going to court.

The Republican attorney general is telling the Democratic governor that a new policy from the Department for Children and Families violates either the letter or spirit of state law. The policy allows some adults without children to receive welfare even if they donít meet work requirements.

Schmidtís deadline moves the two officials closer to a legal showdown over how much power Kelly and her agencies have regarding welfare policy. The outcome may affect whether some Kansans can remain on assistance.

Kelly has stood by the policy and her office plans a news conference Thursday to address the issue. She has long been critical of the stateís restrictions on welfare, which lawmakers placed into law under former Republican Gov. Sam Brownback.
