TOPEKA, Kan. (AP)-- The state director of Americans for Prosperity says he helped a new Kansas group find an attorney to organize opposition to renewable energy standards.

Jeff Glendening on Wednesday said AFP had nothing to do with postcards sent out opposing the standards. But on Thursday, Glendening told The Wichita Eagle he forgot to mention that he helped link attorney W. Robert Alderson with Virginia Crossland-Macha, the founder of the Kansas Senior Consumer Alliance.

He says he simply responded to a request from Crossland-Macha and not as a representative of AFP.

The alliance sent mailers to House members last week supporting repeal of the state's standards, which require utility companies to get 20 percent of their power from renewable sources by 2020.
