On Saturday August 12, 2006 Phill Kline spoke to the Patriot Guard in Mulvane, Kans.
As reported by KAKE Wichita, Kline commented on the Phelps family by saying “They only represent the most base of human condition, and that is those who believe their only value can be gained at the misery of another.”
Kline failed to mention that on Oct. 17, 2002 he accepted $500 from Benjamin C. Phelps, grandson of Fred Phelps, Sr., for his campaign for Attorney General. (Kansas Ethics Commission) Kline used the money to squeak out a razor thin victory.
“The fact that Phill Kline would take money from a person who protests the funerals of our service men and women is disturbing. Someone with such terrible judgment and skewed priorities has no business being Attorney General,” said Mark Simpson, Morrison for Attorney General Campaign Manager.
“Sometimes you know a lot about a person by the company he keeps. In Phill Kline’s case, it is another reminder that Kansas deserves an Attorney General with the right priorities and good judgment,” said Mark Simpson, Morrison for Attorney General Campaign Manager.
The Patriot Guard tries to protect military families from the protests staged by the Phelps Family and Westboro Baptist Church. Nationwide there has been an outcry against the Phelps Family protests at the funerals of military men and women.
