I think that if he wasn't attorney general no one would give two cents about his sexual affairs. Women get too greedy. He was okay enough w/ her to have an affair w/ him for two years, but then when he becomes a big shot she all of a sudden cries out sexual harassment. Why do women think men who are willing to have affairs are going to share their success w/ her, the mistress???? DON'T have affairs w/ men who are married. The woman living in his home and bearing his children is the one sharing the spotlight w/ him in the end!!!!

Magpie and 50YearResident apparently have not read the initial story on cjonline by former LJW reporter Tim Carpenter. Probably will have a somewhat different view if you read it. Many dates since election cited in this thorough article. Pretty clear that much inappropriate behavior while on the job which denigrates the AG position and thus my call for him to resign ASAP and let the Governor appoint someone - maybe the man from Junction City (believe he was the County Attorney there) who lost, I think in the primary against Kline previously. He seemed to have the integrity that neither Kline nor Morrison apparently have been able to display.

Kobach is one of the Repugnants leading the charge.

Yeah, like he has room to talk after his brush with the law, in which he actually spent (a small amount of) time in the can.

Hypocrite M-F's ...

No matter how much the Dems make you sick, the Repubs are just as friggin bad.

One is a donkey (big mouth ass) and the other one an elephant (craps everywhere while treading on the little people).

No wonder more people don't vote!

BTW, yeah, I agree that this is a "jilted lover" scenario. It also has Fabulous Phill lurking in the background, pulling the strings to take attention off of his "resident of Johnson County" issue. Funny how he lives in Topeka 99% of the time ...

We have a consensual affair that went bad, so of course she's claiming harassment.

No laws were broken....or is adultery illegal in this 19th-century state? It might be.....

Adultery is a crime.

K.S.A. 21-3507. Adultery. (1) Adultery is engaging in sexual intercourse or sodomy with a person who is not married to the offender if: (a) The offender is married; or (b) The offender is not married and knows that the other person involved in the act is married. (2) Adultery is a class C misdemeanor.

K.S.A. 21-4502 provides that the penalty for a Class C misdemeanor is up to one month in the county jail and K.S.A. 21-4503b says the fine for a Class C misdemeanor is up to $500.

So yes, adultery is a crime, but I have not heard of any attempted or successful prosecution in the state of Kansas in 30 years.

The question is "should he resign over sexual harassment allegations?" (The adultery matter is not part of this poll.)

Allegations? No. Conviction? Yes.

The affair istself is not the most damning issue. The fact that he was fornicating in his office and in other rooms in the courthouse DURING WORK HOURS shows a complete lack of judgment on his part that make him unworthy of this or any other public office. The fact that it was with a co-worker who was not his spouse only adds to the indescretion.

And in his profession he should know more than most that that handling himself professionally is of utmost importance.

He has lost all credibility and should definitely resign regardless of politics.

I voted no. I agree with Atalanta.
I voted for Kline in the election. He lost to Morrison so Morrison should do the job he was elected to do. I thought he is to be innocent until proven guilty.

What's with the automatic retorts that she lied or was greedily persuing a settlement after being jilted? Were you there? (Of course you weren't! You are clueless!)

You could just as easily guess that she got sick of him hitting on her after they broke up, or that she was coerced, or that she's playing politics like any of the power-grubbing fools that have a stake in Morrison's downfall. Check your assumptions because they betray your tragic ignorance.

If he's guilty of harrassment, he should step down. It's difficult to prove, but a jury can give an educated verdict.

This happened before the AG Election and has no bearing on his current job. I think he is doing an excellent job and Kline is jealous and wants to cause trouble because he lost his job.

I think he is a sleezeball and should resign, but then again, Clinton was worse and he runs around like he did nothing wrong. Go figure.The moral values of this country continue to sink like a rock.The unfortunate part about this is that most people don't even see or know it.

jonas 7 years, 4 months ago

Wow, its like its divided upon party lines.

KS: Most people see it and know it. That they accept it shows that in terms of public office, a lot of us see few alternatives, and the ones that do seem to only see partisan alternatives, which is also disillusioning as what that means, generally speaking, is that they simply ignore or rationalize the greed, corruption, and scandalous behavior on one side of the aisle, and focus all their energies on the other side. For instance, some talk about Clinton over and over and over again, without mentioning the huge number of senators of the more conservative variety who have either had affairs, or abused their power in shady deals. Its kind of hard to take seriously.

Richard Heckler 7 years, 4 months ago

Is he guilty yet?

He admitted to an affair and now it appears we a have a disgruntled lover?

Tow years says there was consent both ways.

Now the JOCO neocons have jumped in and they love pornography.
