Justice & The Fall of Paul Morrison

“The attorney general is supposed to be someone who abides by the law and protects us and defends the law and is a law enforcement officer," David Gittrich, development director for Kansans for Life, told Family News in Focus.

"What (Morrison) was doing was just the opposite of all that."

As I mentioned last week you need to live in KC and in the surrounding areas to understand how big this story is about Paul Morrison. He switched to the Democrat party to run against Republican Phil Kline for Kansas Attorney General in 2006. During the campaign the Morrison camp and their willing accomplices in the Drive By Media were involved in merciless character assassination of Kline. It was disgusting to watch. What was Phil Kline's unforgivable sin? He rightfully was investigating late term abortionist George Tiller and Planned Parenthood for some violations.

As a result some of us felt justice had been served when Morrison chose to resign last week amid charges of misconduct and an affair that Morrison admitted. Jack Cashill once again does an excellent job in his column describing the truth about Kline and Morrison. Here are some excerpts:
"This holiday season was supposed to one rollicking good time for the progressive, pro-abortion forces that dominate Kansas media. But it hasn’t exactly worked out that way.

For nearly a year, KCTV 5 in suburban Kansas City had been preparing what promised to be a blockbuster expose of former Kansas attorney general Phill Kline, the one man who most threatened the Kansas abortion business.

Instead, the expose proved pointless and--in the words of the dependably anti-Kline alternative newspaper, the Pitch--even “creepy.”

Worse, within two weeks of the KCTV 5 fiasco, a new and very real scandal erupted. This one involved not Kline, but the alleged white knight of the abortion industry and its media friends, the man they had championed to oust Kline as attorney general, Paul Morrison.

Bizarrely, there is a lot of abortion business to protect in Kansas. Thanks to a sympathetic media and some politically savvy abortion doctors, none more so than Dr. George Tiller of Wichita, this unlikely red state has emerged as the undisputed late term abortion capital of the western world.

When Kline, then the state’s attorney general, attempted to enforce the state’s abortion laws, the media went after him tooth and claw.

Kline was a zealot, a “theocrat,” who went trawling through the private medical records of innocent young women in the hope of “furthering his ideological agenda”
"The challenge for the pro-life activists in Kansas is to keep their eye on the real story: the elevation of a morally compromised prosecutor for no larger purpose than to flout the state abortion laws and his exploitation of an illicit affair to subvert his successor’s efforts to enforce that law."

It appears to me that the KC Star, KCTV 5 and the other willing accomplices in the Drive By Media have some egg on their face. Their star has definitely lost his luster.
