Out of Gas

"Something both subtle and potentially dramatic has happened to Kansas social conservatives," writes Martin Hawver, publisher of Topeka-based Hawver's Capitol Report, in an opinion piece published in the Wichita Eagle. "On issues ranging from immigration to domestic partnerships to the fringes of abortion policy, socially conservative legislators have lost horsepower."

"They've lost on immigration issues ranging from requiring photo ID to vote to requiring birth certificates to prove that potential voters are U.S. citizens," writes Hawver. "They've lost on the effort to prevent Lawrence from registering domestic partners. And they've lost embryonic stem-cell research bans and even an effort to force Attorney General Paul Morrison to prosecute Wichita abortion doctor George Tiller."
