Phil Kline profiled in LA Times

The April 11 LA Times featured Stephanie Simon's profile of Kansas Attorney General Phil Kline.

He travels the state preaching from church pulpits, with a firebrand charisma that has earned him a reputation as the state's best orator. He declares that some of the laws he's sworn to enforce are repugnant to him — especially a woman's right to abortion. He says he will uphold that right, but he interprets it narrowly.
Because Kline traveling the state to preach from church politcs the state has had to hire an outside attorney Kenneth Waltz from Overland Park to represent the state in the school finance case. Gee, I thought that was what we elected Kline to do.
