Ethics complaint against former deputy AG under Kline will go forward in May

March 19, 2010


— A Kansas panel has rescheduled a hearing for a former deputy attorney general facing an ethics complaint over investigations of abortion providers.

The hearing for Eric Rucker by the state Board for Discipline of Attorneys had been scheduled to start April 27. It's been postponed to May 11 because Rucker's lawyer had a scheduling conflict.

The complaint accuses Rucker of making false statements to other officials, including the Kansas Supreme Court, to further investigations of abortion providers. He denies the allegations.

Rucker was Phill Kline's chief deputy when Kline served as attorney general in 2003-07 and as Johnson County district attorney in 2007-08. Kline also faces an ethics complaint.

Who could ever imagine someone in Klines office doing something like that!! It can't be true!!

(Pause to remove tongue from cheek)

Hope justice is served.

i mightily hope Phil Kline is politically destroyed, and his name forgotten forever to the annals of history.

This is a classic case of the "Scooter" defense. Kline hopes he won't get touched because his aide took the fall for him. Somebody needs to tell him he isn't the VP of the US hiding behind the wall of a friendly administration.
