— A newly unsealed deposition shows Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach discussed with President Donald Trump's voter fraud commission a requirement that people produce proof of U.S. citizenship to register to vote.

Excerpts of the transcript made public Thursday show Kobach also testified that GOP Rep. Steve King of Iowa has agreed to introduce legislation amending the National Voter Registration Act if Kansas loses a federal lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union challenging the document requirement.

A judge required Kobach to submit to the August deposition after finding a pattern of Kobach misleading the court.

The transcript sheds new light on a November meeting with the then president-elect discussed the possibility of Kobach becoming secretary of homeland security. Kobach says they discussed the issue of noncitizen voting.

The GOP is voting against YOUR voting rights ..........

Voting Rights Protection

This household has been busy reviewing, updating and replacing various documents associated with voting rights. To protect ourselves against voter suppression.

We consider putting together a voting packet as a voting rights exercise to keep us aware.

Have VOTERS been purged from the voting rolls? Most likely

This can be fixed however it takes time in some cases up to 3 weeks. Check your status frequently.

Voters ORGANIZING A VOTING DAY PACKET might be a preventive measure which could include:

--- a drivers license or state ID card

--- Military Discharge Papers

--- Keep this packet close to protect your right to vote

Do it today in case it is discovered one or more of the above cannot be found. None of these are difficult to replace. But will take time. Some believe voter suppression is effective. https://www.alecexposed.org/wiki/ALEC_Exposed

ALEC conservatives are keeping American focused on immigrants voting illegally HOWEVER there are not enough illegal immigrants registered to vote much less participate in the voting process to impact an election. http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2014/01/koch-brothers-candidate-training-recruiting-aegis-strategic

So democrats and moderate republicans are the real targets of this endeavor because these two factions can impact an election. Yes these two factions can be purged just long enough to provide Libertarian and/or fundamentalist candidates very important seats in our national, state and local governing bodies.

Libertarians and fundamentalists have joined together to defeat the majority of american moderate voters with a minority of voters.

Between purging voters and too many voters staying home allows the minority to control the majority.

In addition conservative officials throughout the USA are being led by Kris Kobach thus sending out confusing information leaving some voters believing they cannot vote anymore.

This matter of purging those who have not voted in a while as a basis for not allowing citizens to vote must be against the law. Here again this can keep voters from voting just long enough for radical libertarians and radical fundamentalists to win elections. BEWARE.
