Phill Kline's attorney alleges that the court record in an ethics case may have been tainted by a research attorney fired for posting disparaging Twitter comments about the former Kansas attorney general.

Tom Condit wrote a letter the disciplinary administrator for the judicial branch asking for a review of all research attorneys working for judges and justices to determine whether there was bias.

Sarah Peterson-Herr was fired Nov. 19, four days after she posted comments about Kline as he appeared before the Kansas Supreme Court over alleged misconduct during his investigation of abortion providers.

A court spokesman declined to comment about Condit's letter or what action, if any, the disciplinary administrator would take to address the concerns.
