Hutchinson News On Kobach

The Hutchinson News had a great editorial last week on Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach

...Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach made yet another incomprehensible move that puts his own interests above the residents of Kansas and further erodes the integrity of the office of the state's top election official.

Kobach - the elected gatekeeper of fair and impartial elections in Kansas - has created a political action committee, naming himself as chairman. Its name is Prairie Fire PAC, and its purpose is to raise money for Kansas candidates. While Kobach said no decisions have been made about whom the PAC might support, he wouldn't rule out casting behind potential GOP candidates in upcoming primary elections, especially those "who are serious about fighting voter fraud."
And, here is the conclusion

...it is starting to seem like the person Kansans should fear most is not the one who comes to the polls without identification but the one who will go to seemingly any length to control the ballot before voters ever arrive.  

Read the whole thing.
