In reality, when Phill Kline and the attorney's he fired upon taking office settled a lawsuit over the firings just a few short weeks ago, one of the stipulations Kline had to make in order for the attorney's to drop their case was a signed letter stating they were specifically not fired for performance related reasons. In the letter Kline wrote:
“I have no criticism of your professional ethics. Further, since you did not serve under me in my position as district attorney, I do not have personal knowledge of your skills and performance and I believe that you are eligible for rehire at the Johnson County District Attorney’s Office as allowed by law.”

We're not endorsing anyone in this race, but it's clear that one candidate and his supporters are resorting to misleading information and outright lies to try and get ahead. It's a shame really, because if you have ever had the chance to hear Kline speak in person you would realize, as we did, that he is so well spoken, so convincing, that we're convinced he could get Mother Teresa convicted of crimes against humanity. We don't know about you, but that's a quality we'd love to have in our DA.
