Letter to the editor: Punish Kobach

March 23, 2018


To the editor:

It’s amazing to me that Kris Kobach believes he can violate the rules of discovery in a lawsuit by not providing all of the evidence that he wants to produce at trial to his adversary, the ACLU. His ever-increasing number of “illegals” voting starkly reminds me of the movie “The Manchurian Candidate” where Sen. Iselin constantly changes the number of “communists” that are in the U.S. Senate. He finally turns to his wire and asks, “Can we please settle on one number for how many ‘communists’ are in the Senate?” Kris Kobach should be held in contempt of court for his tactics. Further, he should lose his law license just as his pal (and former Kansas Attorney General) Phill Kline did for much the same reason.

The best way to punish Kobach for his excesses is for the media to start providing much better coverage of the other Republican candidates so that Kansans will be introduced to them and their ideas and develop the name recognition that eludes so many of them precisely because Kobach has always followed the Trumpian philosophy of bad news is good news because it's free publicity and name recognition is the name of the game.

Come on, Kansas media; start ignoring Kobach's excesses and start paying attention to serious candidates from both parties who could provide a real future for our state worth pursuing!
