Ex-Phill Kline hatchet man Eric Rucker gets slap on the wrist

Kansas is still dealing with the fallout of Phill Kline‘s tumultuous tenure as attorney general.

Yesterday, the state’s disciplinary board for attorney’s slapped the wrist of Kline’s former chief of staff and hatchet man, Eric Rucker. The board recommended censure, an “informal admonition,” and a sharp tongue-lashing for Rucker’s role in misleading the Kansas Supreme Court during the investigation of Wichita abortion provider George Tiller.

The board smacked Rucker for inaction.
