Will replace outgoing pro-abortion attorney Paul Morrison.
Morrison is leaving after the end of the month following a sex scandal with a subordinate and allegations that he asked her to interfere in an investigation of a Planned Parenthood abortion center.
Sebelius, who backs abortion, named Douglas County District Judge Stephen Six to replace Morrison. Six became a district court judge in 2005 and his father, Fred Six, is a retired Kansas Supreme Court justice.
“He has answered the call of public service again, and is ready to lead the people’s law firm effectively, responsibly, with character and integrity,” Sebelius said of her appointee.
Six hasn’t taken a very public position on abortion, but the statewide pro-life group Kansans for Life tells LifeNews.com Six has a history of donating to pro-abortion candidates.
KFL director Mary Kay Culp said Six has donated $750 to Sebelius campaigns and also donated to pro-abortion Congressional candidate Dennis Moore.
