Outgoing Attorney General Phill Kline is appointing Wichita attorney Don McKinney, an anti-abortion activist, to handle his case against Wichita abortion doctor George Tiller — regardless of what happens at today’s Sedgwick County court hearing on whether to reinstate misdemeanor charges against Tiller. “This appointment of an independent special prosecutor will remove this investigation from a highly charged political process,” Kline claimed. Oh, please. This appointment is about trying to continue an ideologically motivated investigation and forcing incoming Attorney General Paul Morrison to have to end it.

UPDATE: Judge Paul Clark refused today to reinstate the charges against Tiller.
