KS AG Challenger Now Denies He Said He Would End Abortion Clinic Investigations
Morrison refuses to own up to his major campaign promise
Kansans for Truth In Politics, October 5, 2006
Topeka, KS — Challenger for the office of Attorney General, Paul Morrison, now states that he never said he would halt the investigations into abortion clinics initiated by current Attorney General Phill Kline, in spite of the fact that this campaign promise has been the centerpiece of his campaign.
Morrison has been quoted repeatedly in the media saying that he would stop the investigations into concealment of child rape and illegal late-term abortions. He has also said he would drop the request for medical records that could prove crimes were committed.
Morrison had been the recipient of campaign contributions from Kansas abortionists such as Ronald Yeomans. Abortionist George R. Tiller’s ProKanDo political action committee held a fundraiser for Morrison in Washington, DC in July.
“Morrison has been caught with his hand in the cookie jar,” said Cheryl Sullenger, chairperson for Kansans for Truth In Politics. “He has taken campaign money from the very people who are under investigation, and then made promises that he would drop the investigation and request for medical records that could prove his campaign contributors violated the law. Now he says he didn’t say that, even though it has been the centerpiece of his campaign. He must think the voters of Kansas were born yesterday.”
Attorney General Kline produced documents that showed Shawnee County District Court Judge Richard Anderson approved Kline’s request for medical records, saying there was “probable cause” to believe the records would show that crimes had been committed by two abortion clinics run by late-term abortionist George R. Tiller and Planned Parenthood.
Morrison has also changed his website’s statements about the abortion clinic records issue. His website claimed just until recently that he would not “use the power of the Attorney General’s office to look at women’s private medical records.*” Now his website states that he “will not use the power of the Kansas Attorney General’s office invade Kansans’ right to privacy*.” It should be noted that Morrison, himself, has likely sought tens of thousands of Kansans’ medical records while investigating crimes as a District Attorney.
“I think Morrison knows he has crossed the line of ethical behavior and must now misrepresent his earlier statements in order to bail himself out of a jam. That is how criminals act, not state attorneys general,” said Sullenger.
Morrison’s denial was published in today’s Topeka Capital-Journal.
