Former Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline blamed the dismissal of the case he filed against Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri on a conspiracy to protect abortion providers, the Topeka Capital-Journal reported. Kline said the web of “corruption and cover-up” included Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe, Shawnee County District Attorney Chad Taylor, Attorney General Derek Schmidt, and former Attorneys General Steve Six and Paul Morrison – multiple officials from multiple jurisdictions and political parties over multiple years. Pedro Irigonegaray, an attorney representing Planned Parenthood, offered an alternative explanation for why the case fell apart: Kline’s “incompetent prosecution” and “abuse of political power.”
