Tim Shallenburger’s tendency to shoot from the lip is usually to his credit as chairman of the Kansas Republican Party. But he went over the top last week in instantly condemning Democratic attorney general candidate Paul Morrison as having “pulled a Benedict Arnold” by switching parties. Ditto Shallenburger’s suggestion that the Johnson County district attorney was somehow culpable for the 2000 Wichita killing spree of Reginald and Jonathan Carr. And describing a 25-year criminal prosecutor with a 98 percent jury trial conviction rate as “soft on crime”? Puh-leese. Voters need to decide this contest on issues, not insults.
