Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback (R) drew a round of boos from NCAA basketball fans on Sunday when he was shown wearing a T-shirt with logos from both Wichita State and Kansas, the Washington Post reported.
Brownback, who himself went to Kansas State, was seen in the crowd sporting the grey T-shirt on top of a pink button-down shirt.
The attempt to avoid taking sides caused an uproar on social media in addition to upsetting fans at the game. Twitter users also outed him for donning a Wichita State T-shirt once the Shockers had beat out the No. 2-ranked Jayhawks.
No matter the outcome, Sam Brownback is the real loser

Wherever you stand on Sam Brownback’s taxation policy, we can all agree on the lameness of wearing both teams on your shirt. Booooo

Gov. Sam Brownback wearing a t-shirt with both teams over a button-down shirt is the “most politician thing at a sporting event” ever.
