The professional fate of Phill Kline, Kansas's former attorney
general, is now in the hands of the Kansas Supreme Court. A
complaint was filed against him for trying to prosecute abortion
A hearing was held yesterday before the state Supreme Court in
the continuing effort to disbar Kline for alleged ethics
violations. Dana Cody of the Life Legal Defense Foundation (LLDF) tells
OneNewsNow that disciplinary administrator Stanton Haslett has
recommended that Kline's license be revoked.
administrator and his deputy took things out of context, made
conclusions inferring things like … they could get inside Phill
Kline's head," Cody details.
"There was really no evidence that he violated any ethical
directive in his role as the state attorney general, or later on as
the Johnson County district attorney."
In fact, the LLDF spokesperson tells OneNewsNow Kline did an
excellent job as a prosecutor.
"He went after Planned Parenthood and George Tiller's clinic for
not reporting statutory rape, for not protecting young girls who
were victims," she reports.
She adds that "it just appears to be a totally
politically-motivated prosecution" that came about because the
state was under the control of then-Governor Kathleeen Sebelius
(D), a strong supporter of abortion and Planned Parenthood.
Sebelius is now U.S. secretary of Health and Human Services, and
her appointees dominate the disciplinary administrators and the
Kansas Supreme Court.
Illinois voters will be the judge when it comes to whether one
particular member of the bench keeps his position.
