Phill Kline (the extra l is for “lying”) has been claiming that his challenger in the race for Kansas Attorney General created a crime wave through a sentencing reform law he helped draft. Morrison has been defending himself vigorously, and now he gets support from a surprising corner. A foundation established by two Kline supporters, one a former employee, takes him to task:
This irresponsible claim and attempt to instill fear in Kansas Voters is the worst example of demagoguery.
To insinuate that massive murders, rapes, and general criminal rampage resulted by this bill is not only irresponsible, it is insulting and demeaning to all Kansans. This appeal to the fearful emotions of all Kansans ignores logic, reason, and the genuine intent of outstanding former leaders and defies and debases their efforts for a safer Kansas.
The foundation was established in memory of a murdered teen, and works to prevent similar crimes.
