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.

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.

Wow- unbelievable -amazing- what a below the belt attack upon a good man who was attempting to do his job as Attorney General. The fact is that the law was not being followed and it resulted in charges being brought against abortionists who were violating Kansas law. Even Mr. Morrison continued with prosecution of violations against Tiller and records were conveniently destroyed by the Sebelius Administration in the case against Planned Parenthood. Amazing the hatred by some on the left because they seem to worship at the altar of abortion on demand. Jesus tears come when his children are dismembered.

Jesus tears?

Oh I get it. Bravo!

You are better than 1029 when it comes to trolling.

You had everyone fooled.

It is a pity though that there are enough people in Kansas who sincerely believe what you parrot and that made you so very believable.

I saw something today that made me think of you, KJH. I'll let you guess which part. "Morality is doing what's right, regardless of what you're told. Obedience is doing what you're told regardless of what's right."

Katara 2 years, 7 months ago

You don't get it.

He's an over-the-top troll. Review his last few posts. He is starting to not be able to keep the facade up.

Honestly, who uses the phrase "Jesus tears"?

Kline, a good man? Now that's a laugh. A good man doesn't lie. A good man doesn't violate his oath of office in order to fulfill a private agenda. The maximum penalty is the loss of his law license - a license he clearly does not deserve.

kansanjayhawk 2 years, 7 months ago

So what do think about the above suggestion that Kline should be "burned at the stake"?

Cait McKnelly 2 years, 7 months ago

Hyperbole? That's something KJH engages in on a daily basis. "Babies being ripped limb from limb! Jesus tears! Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling! Forty years of darkness. Earthquakes, volcanoes, the dead rising from the grave. Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together – mass hysteria!"

Those that know him and heard his lies, had to recuse themselves. Some might be called as witnesses. Kline should go to jail but lawyers usually don't.

kansanjayhawk 2 years, 7 months ago

Kline should not go jail for doing his job! Does it not bother you how Tiller's vast amounts of money perverted our political system for a time? blood money!

Katara 2 years, 7 months ago

Jesus tears! Blood money! Whargarbbl!

pace 2 years, 7 months ago

So you argue that Kline could be as dishonest as he wanted as long as he got Tiller? No thanks, Kline would not be going to jail for "doing his job" he used his office to do another job and failed at his job. He didn't win the office of dirty tricks huckster, that wasn't the job description. I have seen that like before, lie and cheat because they feel righteous, they are just liars and cheater, SS guards at concentration camps said they were good men and what they did, they did for their country. No, not so much.

Good job autie! I never did like the man and one other agency with 3 initials. That's why I left the great state of oz and live somewhere else. I know HATE is a strong word but I hate those who persecute others.

kansanjayhawk 2 years, 7 months ago

What about those who persecute God's little children? Remember Tiller performed late-term abortion in the seventh, eighth, and ninth months of pregnancy. A barbarian like act in which the unborn child is literally torn limb from limb.

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....

Cait McKnelly 2 years, 7 months ago

You're a bit late, Pastor. KJH has already jumped the gate (and jumped the shark, per usual, doing it).

Katara 2 years, 7 months ago

He is just an over-the-top troll.

kansanjayhawk is just dialing up the derp for entertainment.

kansanjayhawk 2 years, 7 months ago

funded by the abortion industry- sad- but true.

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

irvan moore 2 years, 7 months ago

mr. kline has sure cost the state a lot of money

Bob Forer 2 years, 7 months ago

Why just seven? Wny not eight, or nine. Hell, lets make it an even ten. A nice found figure.

Kline is the king of the charlatan scumbags. Hope he never comes back to Kansas.

Cait McKnelly 2 years, 7 months ago

Nah, he has a cushy little place at Liberty U. being Jerry Falwell's gofer and boot licker. He's been there for something like three years now as a "visiting professor". I find it ironic that they actually outright hired Turner Gill but won't Phill Kline.

kansanjayhawk 2 years, 7 months ago

Here we go again...now you advocate violence! This does not help the pro-abortion cause! Kline was just attempting to do his job and enforce the law.

deec 2 years, 7 months ago

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.

Cait McKnelly 2 years, 7 months ago

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.?

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?

Linda Endicott 2 years, 7 months ago

I heard that on TV, too...

And I thought it was very interesting that the zealots think their "anonymous informant" has a right to privacy...but apparently they don't think the women whose documents were stolen have any rights to privacy at all...

Of course not. When God is on your side, anything to further your cause is not only permissible, but demanded by righteousness.

And they have no doubt that God is on their side. Maybe they should be more concerned about being on God's side.

"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.

kansanjayhawk 2 years, 7 months ago

Another liberal who pre-judges the case! Instead of making such pronouncements let the Court adjudicate this matter.

verity 2 years, 7 months ago

And yet you have no trouble judging:

"Sebelius has consistently sided with evil throughout her political career."
