5 Kansas justices recuse selves from Phill Kline case

May 18, 2012


— Five of the seven justices of the Kansas Supreme Court have stepped aside from the attorney disciplinary case against former Attorney General Phill Kline.

The justices announced their decision Friday.

Kline's lawyer had asked that Chief Justice Lawton Nuss and Justice Carol Beier step aside because the defense perceives them as biased against the former attorney general. Three others recused themselves because they had heard earlier parts of the proceedings.

The allegations of ethics violation stem from an investigation of abortion providers that Kline began during his one term as attorney general. The state Board for Discipline of Attorneys said Kline repeatedly misled other officials or allowed subordinates to mislead others.

Five special judges will be appointed for the high court's hearing, which is not expected before this fall.

"a good man who was attempting to do his job as Attorney General. "

What a disgusting, immoral attempt to defend the indefensible. Enough of this 'ends justify the means' validation of clear-cut ethical wrongdoing. Kline believed himself a soldier in a noble cause and thereby concluded that any unethical actions he took in furtherance of those ends mattered not. Every genocidal monster of the 20th century believed the same.

Phill Kline is a corrupt zealot who disgraces the legal profession. He should be vomited out like bad shellfish. Those who defend his criminality deserve the derision of all good, ethical, law-abiding people.

From "Women's Health Policy Report"

May 14, 2012 — "Antiabortion activists want to create the impression that one way or another, a woman's decision to have an abortion will be discovered and exposed," Irin Carmon writes in Salon. She notes a recent example in which the antiabortion-rights group Operation Rescue claimed an "anonymous informant" had provided the group with patient records from a Kansas clinic and posted images of the documents online.

I wonder who that was?

Since you know Phill so well and count him as a personal friend, kjh, ask him when he's going to give up his abortion porn and hand back over the copies of records he made off with. Does he really need copies of records of Kansas abortions at Liberty U.?

If complex Liberal women want to do what they 'must' do. What they 'have' to do. Let them.

The 'survival' of the planet is at stake here.

deec. and why should anyone 'care' about your, "you know, born and alive" fetus? Is there a 'shortage' I'm not aware of?

There is no such thing as the pro-abortion cause. And there's no such thing as pro-life. Pro-birth, maybe. Pro-fetus, perhaps. But they generally don't give a ____about the fetus once it is actually, you know, born and alive.

No he wasn't. He was trying to become governor. I'm not saying that he isn't a Christian zealot, willing to step on anyone's rights for his own cause.
I don't care for Brownback, but at least he isn't as big of a nut as Phill Kline is. What's up with that 2-l's in Phil, by the way. That alone is plenty of reason to dislike the man.

I'm thinking it would be worth the jail time to get the pure satisfaction of punching Philll Kline seven times in the face.

I don't think it's going to matter. I predict a unanimous verdict.

Waiting for ferret-faced Phill's minions to lionize him for taking charge of things and to denounce the "anti-christian bigotry" which led to his being run out of town on a rail....

Well guess what quiters? I don't recuse myslef as citizen Autie and I say burn him at the stake. Ban his "law' license. He apparently had no regard for the rule of law or the law of the land or the Constitution of the United States. He is a prime example of what happens when Evangilical liars corrupt an honerable position to advance the false dogma of some fake BS. He was a fraud and a fake as our AG. He is a fraud and a fake as a teacher at that FRAUD FAKE university of the fake Christians...Those people bring tears to the eye of Jesus also.
