In a column for RenewAmerica, former Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline (in photo) joined the anti-abortion media’s crusade against President Obama’s nomination of Steve Six to the federal bench. Kline argued that Six, who was appointed Kansas attorney general by then-Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, “used the power of his office to thwart, delay and interfere with” a criminal case Kline had filed against Planned Parenthood when he was Johnson County’s district attorney. That case has yet to go to trial. “Six’s use of his office to protect the interests of a large corporate benefactor of a governor who appointed Six to office would scream corruption but for the injection of abortion politics,” wrote Kline, who now teaches at Liberty University School of Law in Lynchburg, Va. Kline is scheduled to return to Kansas July 19 for more ethics hearings on whether he misled a Johnson County grand jury investigating Planned Parenthood.
