A professional ethics panel had little choice but to recommend that former Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline have his state law license suspended indefinitely. Kline repeatedly misled other officials or allowed subordinates to mislead others, violating “rules that prohibit false and dishonest conduct,” the panel concluded. Kline responded in a statement that he “will continue to speak and stand for the truth and for those who cannot speak for themselves.” And he claimed that his only “mistake” was his “willingness to investigate politically powerful people.” That may play well with some pro-life groups, but what got Kline in trouble was that he let his anti-abortion fervor cloud his legal judgment and justify professional misconduct.
