The hearings on whether to dismiss charges against Wichita abortion doctor George Tiller have been a painful reminder of how dysfunctional the Kansas Attorney General’s Office used to be. Testimony has shown how the office of crusading former Attorney General Phill Kline mishandled abortion records and may have misled a judge into obtaining those records. This week’s hearings put a humiliating spotlight on the adulterous affair of Kline’s replacement, former Attorney General Paul Morrison, and whether his lover, who worked for Kline and opposes abortion, pressured Morrison into filing charges. “Palace Intrigue on the Prairie” is how a Tiller attorney titled this soap opera. In comparison, current Attorney General Steve Six is boring. Actually, he’s rather boring compared with nearly anyone. And that’s a nice change.
