Critics of outgoing Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback declared a statewide “Bye Brownback” pizza and beer party Tuesday, in spite of Brownback’s proclaimed day of prayer and fasting.

Four Kansas social media groups proclaimed the “Bye Brownback” pizza party on Facebook, and announced that it would begin Tuesday at 3:00 p.m. and last until 3:00 p.m. the following day to coincide not only with Brownback’s day of prayer and fasting, but also with the moment that he leaves office Wednesday. Brownback issued his last proclamation as governor of Kansas Monday, inviting Kansans to join him Tuesday in praying and fasting to publicly give thanks for the ways God blessed their state and the nation.

“Brownback has called for a day of fasting and prayer on his last day,” the party’s Facebook page reads. “So let’s have a pizza party and drink beer. Everyone take pictures and post them on this event page, and we’ll have a good old time!”

The “I Am NOT Sam Campaign” will host the party, along with fellow Brownback critic groups “Sam Brownback Erotic Short Fiction Club,” “Stop Brownback” and “Fuck You, I’m From Kansas.”

The party’s Facebook page does not list specific reasons for the group’s intended criticism and mockery of Brownback, but Brownback is widely known as one of the least popular governors in the U.S., due in no small part to his tax cuts which left Kansas with a skyrocketing deficit.

Brownback will resign as governor of Kansas Wednesday at 3:00 p.m. and will assume his new role as Ambassador at Large for International Religious Freedom. Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer will succeed Brownback as governor later that day in an inauguration ceremony at the Kansas Capitol.
