Kansas Court of Appeals nominee Caleb Stegall has been labeled a ‘crunchy con’

The label, popularized by a 2006 book, aims to describe a somewhat countercultural outlook that disdains box stores and unfettered development and opposes abortion and same-sex marriage. Conservation, a commitment to local communities and the preservation of traditional family values are all crunchy con hallmarks that Stegall has written about or commented on publicly over the years.
