To the editor:
Just when I thought Kansans couldn’t be any more embarrassed, along comes the State Objections Board. Secretary of State Kris Kobach, taking time away from his work on illegal immigration and voter suppression laws around the country, is now opening the door to the birther issue. Instead of immediately rejecting a formal request to have President Obama’s name taken off the Kansas ballot, Kobach says “we need to gather more information” to prove Obama is legally qualified. It’s not only Kobach. Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer and Attorney General Derek Schmidt joined him in the decision. Who is minding the store when our top elected officials waste their time on issues already decided?
We have the creationism vs. evolution debate, the Westboro gang, the anti-women policies, and many more. Now we have the birther issue. What next?
