Phill Kline ends ethics hearing testimony, saying he wouldn’t change

— After more than a week of testimony, the disciplinary hearing for former Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline is winding down.

The hearing is expected to end Wednesday after three more witnesses testify.

Three members of the state Board for Discipline of Attorneys are investigating a complaint that Kline misled state officials and mishandled patients' medical records while investigating abortion clinics when he was attorney general and Johnson County district attorney.

While testifying on Tuesday, Kline said his investigation was the right thing to do and he would do it all again.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that disciplinary administrator Stanton Hazlett officially ended his case after Kline testified.

Kline's attorneys then filed a motion seeking to dismiss the case. It isn't known when the disciplinary panel will issue a ruling.

Kline said he'd do it all again.

And that's why there's no alternative to strip him of his license to a profession whose standards he refuses to accept. Every judge will sooner or later face a criminal in the dock who brazenly refuses either confession or contrition. Unfortunately, this body doesn't have the power to sentence Kline to prison as well. Perhaps the U.S. Attorney can undertake that effort.

Sounds like you are for big government interference in a woman's life. Stalin's Russia? Mao's China? Pol Pot's Cambodia?

totally agree. if what he had done had anything to do with anything but abortion this would have happened long ago. abuse of office, plan and simple.

Still cleaning up the vomit of whacko! Phill. I'll bet he got a nice welcome "home" from Smilin Sam and Herr Kobach though. Now, send him back to Liberty U. in Olde Virginny! where he can bask in the glow of his deceased saviour Jerry Falwell.

IF he were truely trying to protect children who were raped, just why wasn't he issueing subpoenas and conducting inquests into regular hospital records. There are a lot (probably more) children having babies than going for abortions. Weren't those children also raped "(and any sex with a child that young is, by default, rape) " ???

I might actually believe a little of what he says if that were the case, but he chose to totally ignore that section of child rape to focus ONLY on the abortion issue. Loses credibility in my book.

I understand why this happens, but my reply sure seems out of place when they take away what I was responding to. Oh well.
