TOPEKA, Kansas, Sept. 15 /Christian Newswire/ -- An illegally leaked memo from Attorney General Phill Kline regarding campaign strategy has been covered extensively by news organizations in an effort to discredit him. But Operation Rescue says that the memo reveals the motivating agenda behind Morrison’s efforts to unseat Kline, and that is to protect abortionists even it they are violating Kansas law.
Kline’s memo stated that he wanted to go to churches and “get in their pulpits and have them personally host a reception to match Tiller’s blood money.”
Abortionist George Tiller, who is currently under investigation by the Attorney General’s office for illegally concealing child rape and suspected illegal late-term abortions, recently held a ritzy fundraiser for Paul Morrison
in Washington DC through his political action committee, ProKanDo. Four years ago, Tiller dumped hundreds of thousands of dollars into Kline’s opponent’s campaign in the final days before the election, in what Operation Rescue described as an attempt to buy an attorney general who would look the other way when it came to wrong-doing in the abortion industry.
“Abortionists are trying to buy the Attorney General’s office,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “Abortionists can’t abide by the law, so they are trying to buy an attorney general that has promised to ignore the law.”
Morrison, a practicing Catholic, has pledged to drop all investigations into Kansas abortionists currently underway. Dropping the investigation will require that he disregard Kansas laws that require child sex abuse to be reported and that restrict dangerous late-term abortions.
“From a religious standpoint, as well as from a public policy standpoint, Morrison’s pledge to protect outlaw abortionists in exchange for their blood money is a scandalous,” said Newman. “If this is not technically corruption, it is certainly unethical and immoral.”
