You know that asshole DA from Kansas, Phill Kline? When he was Attorney General of the state, he brought a lot of random bullshit charges against late-term abortion provider Dr. Tiller. Then, when he was booted out of office and became DA of Johnson County in Kansas, he used it as an opportunity to baselessly attack Planned Parenthood. In other words, he wasn’t an attorney so much as he was an anti-choice renegade who was unfortunately elected to office.
And Steve Howe, a former prosecutor in the county, used that argument to beat Kline’s ass in a primary race for his reelection. Howe is of course still a Republican, and he is anti-choice, but the fact is that he quite simply can’t be worse, and he did rightfully campaign against the kind of attacks that Kline is notorious for.
Anti-choicers are sad. After all, they spent over $100,000 to try to keep Kline in office. $100,000! For the reelection of the DA of a county in Kansas! And they lost!
Sorry, but it’s funny.
Buh-bye, Kline. With any luck, your career of impeding women’s right to health care is finally over. Please, let it be so.
