TOPEKA, Kansas, June 26 /Christian Newswire/ -- Attorney General Paul Morrison announced today that he found no evidence of criminal conduct in abortion records obtained from Planned Parenthood by Morrison's predecessor, former Attorney General Phill Kline. Morrison indicated that further announcements concerning the investigation into late-term abortionist George R. Tiller would be made by the end of the week.
"We believe that Morrison has serious credibility issues, especially after the Associated Press reported just last Saturday on his political connections to abortion money," said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. "There have been serious concerns that Morrison's abortion investigations have been little more than a sham. This announcement does nothing but heighten those concerns."
"I really doubt that Morrison would have made a different announcement no matter what was in those records. Now we may never know the truth," said Newman "One thing is certain, if Morrison says there is no evidence in the medical records to support criminal charges in the Tiller case, that will be the ultimate evidence of his corruption."
