No Your False Moral Superiority is Not Grounds for Unethical Behavior
In 2007, Mr. Kline filed 107 criminal charges against a Planned Parenthood clinic in the
suburbs, accusing it of performing illegal
abortions and falsifying records. The last of those charges were dropped in
August 2012. He also pursued misdemeanor criminal charges against Dr. George
Tiller because of late-term abortions performed at his Kansas
City clinic. Wichita
But it turns out Mr. Kline was a charlatan, an unethical attorney and a prosecutor who thought he didn’t have to follow the rule of law. And now that has caught up with him.
The state Supreme Court indefinitely suspended the law license of former Attorney General Phill Kline on Friday after allegations of ethical misconduct during his investigation of abortion providers. The court unanimously agreed with a state disciplinary panel that Mr. Kline, a Republican, repeatedly misled or allowed subordinates to mislead others, including a Kansas City-area grand jury, to further his investigations.
Justice, sometimes it does work, and sometimes the bad guys do lose.
