Kathleen Sebelius on Crime

Democratic KS Governor


Owing to her Catholicism, Sebelius opposes the death penalty

Owing to her Catholicism, Sebelius is opposed to capital punishment. And after she famously vetoed a 2006 concealed weapon bill, her veto was decisively overriden by the both houses of the Kansas legislature. As governor, she's faced a myriad of difficult educational funding issues.

Opponent of capital punishment during Supreme Court ruling

Sebelius is an opponent of capital punishment. During her first term, the Kansas capital punishment laws were declared unconstitutional by the Kansas Supreme Court. However, on appeal by then-Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline, the ruling was again overturned and the current law reinstated by the United States Supreme Court.
