Kobach only does whatever promotes Kobach. He has no other motivation for anything he does.

And enjoy greater credibility with the electorate, as well.

His degree says more about Harvard than it does about Kris...

Don't you know, he is already on his next 'campaign' - the bogus law about Federal laws not applying to Kansas firearms. That is obviously the next crisis he has to solve !!

This man is pure danger for regular folks and should not be trusted with prosecutorial powers or anything else. And this editorial is correct, NOONE (either party) in that position should be allowed to have a PAC and support anyone in an election.

Just taking even more power away from local governments. This is what they would do, and did do at the Federal level. Against big government? No they are liars again. When are people going to stop falling for it?

The only voter fraud we have is large corporation money PACS that lie to the voters.

If Kobach doesn't recognize on his own that it is a conflict of interest for him to have a PAC to influence the outcome of elections while holding a public trust to guarantee the fairness of elections, he is too ethically challenged to hold public office.

And this bit from Steve Benen. Should we expect Sproul to be named an adviser to Kobach sometime soon? It would be on a par with Laffer's role with Brownback.

It should be obvious that Kobach's motivation for having prosecution of 'voter fraud' under his thumb is so that he can overlook GOP registration, election and tabulation fraud while magnifying minor infractions by anyone opposed to the GOP cabal.

I was going to ask why the Republicans are so afraid of the Democrats in Kansas, of all places. Then I realized it's the moderate Republicans that they're afraid of---you know, the ones who don't follow the Koch line. The extreme rightwing knows they can't keep this up much longer unless they put their thumb on the scale.

Kansas voters are getting what they deserve.
