A Kansas Department of Revenue official has sent email from a personal account to friends in the real estate business in effort to build support for Gov. Sam Brownback's income tax proposal.

Chad Bettes, chief of staff for Revenue Secretary Nick Jordan, sent the email from his personal account to six real estate friends who are also members of the Kansas Association of Realtors.

Included in the email, a copy of which was obtained by The Associated Press, was a letter stating why the sender backed the Republican governor's plan, including elimination of the state's home mortgage deduction and favored other tax changes.

Sherriene Jones-Sontag, the governor's spokeswoman, said the communication was part of the effort to reach Brownback supporters on policy proposals.
