Olathe Former Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline is headed to Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va., where he will be a visiting law professor.
Kline is an anti-abortion Republican who served as attorney general in 2003-07 and launched an investigation of Dr. George Tiller’s abortion clinic months after taking office.
After failing to win re-election in 2006, Kline became Johnson County district attorney to replace Paul Morrison, a former Republican who switched parties and beat Kline in the attorney general’s race.
Kline lost his bid for a full term as Johnson County district attorney in the Republican primary last year. He leaves office on Monday, the same day he begins his job at Liberty.
