One small step for sanity . . .
Your veins must run with Kool-Aid if you think this is a great precedent.
The identity of anyone who votes is public record and has been for a long time.
And all either of these candidates can do is contact the provisional voter to see if they'd like any assistance in making sure their ballot gets counted. These voters can't change how they voted, and neither candidate will know how they voted.
What danger do you see in this?
Woo woo! Sadly, idealism is running in MY veins at the moment (I'll admit it). Love to read the words Kobach and "lose" in the same sentence!
Whenever one judge rules one way, and then another rules the other, then back again and back again, it tells me that it must be a complicated legal issue and that neither side has any more or less right to some moral high ground.
Not sure which judge ruled a different way in this jhawkinsf. The District Court Judge told them to release the names and now the Federal Judge did also. That seems pretty consistent to me.
The other thing consistent seems to be Kobach and "lose" (loser) go together quite a lot when he is in court (or any of the so-called laws he dreams up).
"Meanwhile, Kobach faced additional questions outside of court because his office didn't block the release of similar information about provisional voters in another close Kansas House race earlier this year."
That's easy to explain. Kobach only gets involved when he has a personal stake in the race. In some places that's called a conflict of interest, but in Kansas it seems to be business as usual. After all, Kobach is following the Mike O'Neal guide to ethics. You know, the one with the blank pages.
pretty hilarious typo in the first line: "Kansas Secretary of Kris Kobach"
and telling as well... he DOES seem to think he's bigger than the office. sad when your confidence that your secretary of state can manage a bias free election is next to zero.
I like how their excuse for the perceived double standard about whether or not votes can be released boils down to, "Hypocrites? Heavens, no, we're just incompetent."
And FYI, the identities of voters has been a public record for years. Anyone can go to the local elections board and get a list of all registered voters, and the elections in which they voted.
Kobach is just wasting everyone's time. Situation normal, I s'pose.
Once again, Kobach is proven wrong in his ability to interpret the law.
He "didn't have personal knowledge" of a case earlier THIS year, in HIS office?
Is he incompetent or just not honest?
The WW2 Germanic concepts of voter suppression and denial foisted on the good citizens of Kansas by Herr KKKobach have been overturned by logic and fairness. Hope Mah pulls it out.
Listening to much of the national banter of "voter suppression" prior to and after the November 6th elections indicates that Herr KKKobach was an important player in this whole fiasco. How was he able to devote so much time to this misguided cause since he is a payed employee of the taxpayers of the State of Kansas??
This foolishness (voter supression and denial) will ultimately result in a Federal law that will compell all States to adopt guidelines in how States will be required to conduct all elections that have Federal implications. If this is correct, another situation where the Federal Government trumps the States (and States Rights) because of poor performance by the individual States. If so, GOP'ers and Teabaggers should understand why this comes about.
