Kansas Secretary Of State Kobach To Help Lead Presidential Commission On Voter Fraud
"Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach to help lead a commission on voter fraud and suppression, a body he has promised to create since taking office nearly four months ago.
Kobach, who has gained national notoriety for his claims of widespread voter fraud, will serve as vice chair alongside Vice President Mike Pence, who will chair the commission.
Mark P. Johnson, a Kansas City attorney who has challenged Kansas’ proof of citizenship law, says he’s willing to give Kobach the benefit of the doubt.
'I’d be disappointed if he goes on to the commission with the previous position that voter fraud exists,' he says. 'I hope he even-handedly weighs the evidence that’s presented. In other words, I hope it’s a true investigation, with the conclusions going where the evidence leads them.'"
