Atty. Gen. Phill Kline had nothing to do with a Sedgwick County case he has repeatedly used to defend an investigation that entangled him in a lengthy legal fight with two abortion clinics, the county’s top prosecutor said Monday.
Kline has pointed to the case of Robert A. Estrada, who pleaded no contest in July to nine criminal charges stemming from the rape and sexual abuse of two young girls.
Sedgwick County Dist. Atty. Nola Foulston, a Democrat, said no abortion records were involved in Estrada’s case, only records of live births involving the two girls.
“Kline had absolutely nothing to do with our case — nothing, zero,” she told The Associated Press on Monday.
Paul Morrison has enough courtroom experience that he doesn’t have to lie to beef up his reputation. And he’s smart enough not to want to violate patient privacy just to advance a political fight over abortion.
