Mail Call: Justice should be blind

November 2, 2006

When you are running for office, a candidate's agenda determines who they are and how they will vote on the issues. Writing laws to make Kansas citizens safe and free from crime is one job for the legislator.

When you are running for attorney general, you are elected to enforce the laws of Kansas as passed by the Legislature and signed by the governor. As attorney general, you shouldn't use a conservative or liberal political agenda to influence investigations into what you perceive as criminal activity. If you do then you are enforcing the law with your political bias.

Justice must be blind. Attorney General Phill Kline's eyes are wide open. That is why I will be voting for Paul Morrison on Nov. 7.
