LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ A picture of Governor Kathleen Sebelius holding a T-shirt with the words "Barack Chalk Jayhawk'' across the front has caused a bit of a stir with the University of Kansas.

The university is concerned that it might look like it is supporting Barack Obama.

It says the t-shirt is a violation of trademark regulations, but doesn't have a plan to take any action.

The university Young Democrats received permission for a one-time 100 shirt run in support of Obama so long as only members of the group received the shirts.

In the photo, Gov. Sebelius is standing next to a KU student who is wearing the t-shirt, while holding one up in front of herself.

The words are a play on KU's "Rock, Chalk, Jayhawk,'' chant.
