Kansas statistician battles government to determine whether vote count is flawed

One more thing, the software that runs our voting machines should be open-source. If it can be examined by anyone, we'd be less likely to run into these kinds of issues.

Kansas statistician battles government to determine whether vote count is flawed

The statistical oddity is reason enough to give the ballots another look. There's no good reason to push against it.

If Kobach is being honest and the system is robust, then the records are going to be accurate and we have a fun statistical oddity to study. More knowledge of how things work is always good.

If Kobach is being honest and the system has failed, then we can identify where the failures are and get to work fixing them before the next election. Identifying problems and fixing them is important.

Really, the pushback against examining the available evidence is reason enough to cast doubt on how much Kobach cares about violations regarding voting laws.

After this publicity stunt, religious organizations didn't have to perform marriages for gay couples, but the state of Kansas looks even dumber.

Kansas tax plan caps future revenue, spending growth with 'ratchet' provision

"The current Legislature is not able to bind future Legislatures,"

True, but the people have to elect different legislatures. I'm just not that optimistic that it'll happen.

Doonesbury comic strip takes on Kansas taxes

Maybe we could charge comedians royalties for making fun of the state. That'll balance the budget, I bet.

Kansas Senate OKs bill further limiting local gun rules

Wow. They seem to be getting lots of stuff done during this overtime session. Except, of course, for the tax stuff.

Kansas House advances bill giving Kobach power to prosecute election crimes

I suppose "election crimes" would easily explain what happened during the last few Kansas state elections, right?
