Update: Kansas A.G. Kline Ousted, Had Obtained Abortion Records of Girls and Teenagers

Thank the goddess on high that Kansas Attorney General Phil Kline was ousted last night, replaced by Democratic contender Paul Morrison.  Kline waged a two-year battle to obtain private medical records of girls who had had abortions under the aegis of investigating and prosecuting crimes of incest and rape.  He had recently obtained the records, information from which was subsequently apparently leaked to Bill O’Reilly who blabbed about it on his national television program. 

Morrison’s election appears to be a great victory for women in Kansas.  In his campaign he vowed to devote himself to domestic violence issues and pursuing cyber crimnals, in particular, internet sex offenders. He also vowed to reduce the number of mentally ill individuals in prison in favor of helping them to get the treatment and therapy they needed.  (Geez.  Here it is, 2006, and we still have to have Attorneys General fighting to keep mentally ill people out of prison?)

Morrison wrote Kansas’s  first law permanently locking up sexual predators and prosecuted the nation’s first Internet serial killer.
