A darling of the Religious Right, Kline is fighting for his political life right now.
Go to the editorial to read the whole story, but here I'll just note that Kline's charge has to do with a certain piece of legislation.
The Star writes:
Kline's attempts to blame the legislation for criminal recidivism are grossly exaggerated and, in many cases, outright wrong...Just for good measure, the Star notes that even Republicans are disgusted.
Frightening the public with half-baked half-truths is undignified and disrespectful of the voters. A champion of justice for the state of Kansas should hold himself to much higher standards.
Kansas Sen. John Vratil of Leawood -- like Kline, a Republican -- called the attorney general's campaign approach "demagogic."
