My ire has arisen as a result of seemingly endless Star articles designed to humiliate Phill Kline or create the idea that he is a loose cannon or a buffoon. His record as Kansas attorney general and Johnson County district attorney refute that to anyone who has taken the trouble to learn the facts. Kline has done one thing. He has tried to enforce definite existing laws, and nothing more. (My, my, why in the world would an attorney general do that?)
Other Kansas AGs deserve more criticism than Kline, but The Star is strangely silent. His successor, Paul Morrison, resigned in disgrace because of sexual harassment.
The Kansas Supreme Court got into the act by criticizing Kline because of the way he has kept copies of evidence in his suit against Planned Parenthood and Dr. George Tiller. If Kline had not kept those copies, that evidence would have disappeared long ago.
The court seems more interested in procedure than justice. It has been said many times that justice delayed is not justice served.
