Kline's Loss May Jeopardize Criminal Case Against Planned Parenthood

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _
Kline was seeking a full, four-year term as Johnson County
district attorney, having been appointed to fill a vacancy.

But he lost Tuesday's Republican primary to Steve Howe, a former
assistant district attorney. Kline must leave office in January.

Kline filed 107 criminal charges against a Planned Parenthood
clinic in Overland Park. No trial date has been set.

Planned Parenthood's CEO predicted the new DA will review
Kline's case and conclude no wrongdoing occurred.

Howe and Democratic candidate Rick Guinn said they'd review the
case. A Kline spokesman said he still plans to try to bring it to
trial.
