WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ An extramarital affair that ended former Attorney General Paul Morrison's political career is an issue in court. It has become part of the criminal case against abortion provider Dr. George Tiller of Wichita.
Tiller's attorneys are attacking his prosecution. They returned to Sedgwick County District Court Tuesday for a pretrial hearing.
They already have suggested Morrison was influenced to file charges
against Tiller by his former mistress, Linda Carter. Now they are suggesting that former Attorney General Phill Kline also knew about the affair before Morrison filed his charges.
Defense attorneys have described Carter as influenced by Kline.
Kline declined comment.
