Some of Johnson County District Attorney Phill Kline's oldest enemies are coming to his defense in the wake of a Kansas City TV station's investigation. I have to admit that these folks have a point.
In a nutshell: Alternative newsweekly The Pitch, which usually calls Kline dimwit, and moderate blogger JustCara say the KCTV-5 investigation of the longtime darling of the Religious Right is full of holes. The arguments of both make good sense.
I found The Pitch's arguments to be quite persuasive. This is particularly true given that The Pitch joined with KCTV-5 in the Freedom of Information case that opened Kline's parking records to public inspection.
The saddest thing about all of this is that there are real questions about Kline, particularly about where he lives. If he's still living in his Topeka home, then he is breaking the law. Of course, KCTV-5's sloppy report just made this much harder to determine.
More on the report from the Kansas City Star's Prime Buzz blog.
