Kansas: Fake polls flood state

The Kansas Governmental Ethics Commission has been flooded with complaints about so-called push polls. Portrayed as opinion polls, these telephone calls either include nasty messages about candidates or lead to a follow up phone call with such a message.

Not a surprise: Democratic Attorney General candidate Paul Morrison is the subject of the telephone attacks. This is just the latest in a series of nasty attacks from pro-Phill Kline forces that have been so bad The Wichita Eagle dubbed them "bottom-feeder politics."

Kline's campaign said it had nothing to do with the push poll and attacked it as "vulgar." Uh huh.

The Topeka Capital-Journal writes:
"One woman was almost in tears," said Carol Williams, director of the Kansas Governmental Ethics Commission, whose agency received a wave of complaints on Thursday.
