Former Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline Receives Ethics Complaint

Robin Marty

Former Attorney General Phill Kline is now under an ethics complaint for past actions regarding investigating abortion providers in the state of Kansas.

According to the Associated Press, former Attorney General Phill Kline is now under an ethics complaint for past actions regarding investigating abortion providers in the state.

The complaint, filed Tuesday with a state board, alleges Kline
allowed subordinates to make misleading statements to other state
officials. It also alleges Kline made a false statement to the office
investigating ethics complaints against him.

Kline, an
anti-abortion Republican, was attorney general in 2003-2007, then
Johnson County district attorney in 2007-08. He’s now a visiting
assistant professor of law at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va.

The
complaint will be reviewed first by a panel of the state Board for the
Discipline of Attorneys. But the Kansas Supreme Court would make any
final decision on whether Kline is sanctioned.

Kline has been subpoenaed as a witness for the defense in the Scott Roeder case.  Although he will testify, he has publicly condemned the murder.

During his tenure as AG for the state of Kansas, Kline was best known for his stout anti-abortion beliefs, as well as his incessant and unsuccessful attempts to prosecute Dr. George Tiller for the completely legal practice of providing abortions to women who wished to end their pregnancies.
