Kline Calls Johnston Coverage "Slander"

Obviously, Phill Kline has given up on politicos completely because the only thing he seems to stand up for is Invasion of Privacy for any woman going to a gyno OR using the baby Jesus as a get rich quick scheme . . . Recently, Phill Kline put the blame for the Johnston story on The Star and not on the guy who seemed to be using the New Testament as a lottery ticket:
Johnson County District Attorney Phill Kline has accused Attorney General Paul Morrison — and The Kansas City Star — of “reputational slander” in connection with the Rev. Jerry Johnston and his First Family Church.

In a private e-mail distributed to subscribers of the Kansas Conservative Network, Kline says the newspaper’s coverage and Morrison’s review of the church’s finances will cause a “whisper campaign (to) accelerate and a ministry will be harmed.”
To date, I can't think of one politico who has stood up in support of Johnston and I can't make sense of this move by Kline, unless he wants a talk show or something of that sort.


  1. It is slander. So far, all we have are accusations.

    I hear you have been doing something of your own Tony.

    How about that?

  2. Let's see... the definition of 'slander': "Oral communication of false statements injurious to a person's reputation."

    The Star article was in print, so it isn't slander...neither is the AG's investigation into allegations.

    The 'false statements' piece of the definition has yet to be proven. The current investigations should provide an answer to that.

    If anything, you are talking about libel... "A false publication, as in writing, print, signs, or pictures, that damages a person's reputation"...again it has not been proven that these accusations are false.

    You would think that a former attorney general would know the difference between the two... oh wait... we are talking Phill Kline! That explains a lot.
