Derek Schmidt tenure underscores new era for Kansas attorneys general

When Carla Stovall Steckline attended an orientation for newly elected attorneys general in 1996, she didn’t think much about making a small joke invoking the ongoing presidential race.

Native son Bob Dole was squaring off with President Bill Clinton, and when it came time for Steckline to introduce herself, she said she hailed from Kansas, “home of the next president of the United States.”

No one said anything at the time, but Steckline later learned her remark, which came during a meeting at a National Association of Attorneys General conference, was out-of-bounds.

“That was just such a lesson for me,” said Steckline, who served from 1995 to 2003. “That’s not a place where you talk partisan politics in a group setting. I think that it’s different now.”
