Just Desserts

Phill Klein, the virulently anti-abortion former Kansas Attorney General, has been under investigation by the Kansas bar for leaking confidential medical records in order to harass abortion providers and abortion recipients.

Well, the disciplinary board has now recommended that his license to practice law be permanently suspended:
A Kansas disciplinary panel said Thursday that former Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline should be indefinitely suspended from practicing law in the state because of the “dishonest and selfish” way he pursued abortion clinics.

The recommendation of the attorney disciplinary board culminates a turbulent six-year period in which Kline — as attorney general and later Johnson County district attorney — presided over investigations of the late George Tiller’s abortion clinic in Wichita and Planned Parenthood in Overland Park.
I'm not sure if this is a disbarment, or just one step short of this.

In any case, I wouldn't worry about Mr. Kline. I'm sure that the VWRC will find him something remunerative to him, because, unlike Democrats, the wingers take care of their own.

Maddow notes that Jerry Fallwell's phony school has already given him a professorship.
