The KS GOP Insider and the Star both confirm that outgoing pantysniffer Attorney General Phill Kline is working for votes to take the job of the guy who took his job. Paul Morrison has been the Johnson County DA for a long time, serving as a Republican. He switched parties and booted Kline out of office. A few days ago, Kline switched his voter registration to a Kansans for Life apartment in Johnson County, which fueled speculation that he was going to make a bid for Morrison’s old job.
The way this works, is that Morrison had to step down as DA. That means that the party he was elected to local office by gets to pick his replacement. So tonight the local party leadership will gather and elect a Republican to fill out Morrison’s term. While Kline has still not officially announced, he has apparently been making recorded calls to party leadership trying to scrape up enough support to win.
Interestingly, switching from a statewide office to a county job would actually give him a salary hike. Whether it would curb his interest in the sexual habits of young women is not clear.
