Noting his "impeccable" law-enforcement credentials, The Kansas City Star endorsed Democrat Paul Morrison for Kansas attorney general.
The Star noted:
Democrat Paul Morrison is by far the better choice to serve as the state's top lawyer and public safety advocate.Apologies to The Star writers for shuffling the order of some of their fine editorial. I liked the, let's call it, emotional sense of my version.
In sharp contrast to Kline -- who has used the attorney general's office to promote a controversial personal agenda -- Morrison would make sure common sense and good legal principles dictate his decisions. He's operated that way for 17 years as Johnson County's district attorney.
Phill Kline has taken Kansas on a wild ride during his four years as attorney general.
But enough already.
