KS Atty General Faces Ethics Complaint over Planned Parenthood Criminal Case

pphood crop

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — An anti-abortion group has filed an ethics complaint against Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt over the dismissal of a criminal case against a Kansas City-area Planned Parenthood clinic. Operation Rescue confirmed the filing Tuesday, a day after sending its complaint to the state office that reviews allegations against attorneys. The group accuses Schmidt of participating with Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe in seeing that charges against Planned Parenthood's clinic in Overland Park were dismissed under false pretenses. Howe's predecessor as district attorney filed 107 charges against the clinic in 2007, accusing it of falsifying documents and performing illegal abortions. The clinic strongly disputed the allegations, and the last of the charges were dismissed in August. A spokesman for Schmidt did not immediately return telephone messages seeking comment.
