Lawmakers Call For End to Kline Hearings

A group of lawmakers is calling for an end to ethics hearings focused on a former Kansas attorney general. Phill Kline is accused of misleading judges and mishandling evidence during his investigations of abortion providers. Kline, a Republican, was attorney general from 2003 to 2007. He then served as Johnson County district attorney. Around 25 lawmakers today (THUR) said the hearings should end. Representative Steve Brunk is a Republican from Wichita.

The top Democrat in the Kansas House, Paul Davis of Lawrence, says lawmakers should not interfere with the ethics hearings. He believes legislators have more important issues to focus on, such as the Kansas economy. The first round of hearings ended earlier this month. They’re scheduled to continue in July.
