"After months of defending controversial voting laws in federal and state court, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach debated the laws during a forum at the Dole Institute of Politics Tuesday night.

...

'The legislature makes popular decisions and that's why we have a judiciary that has to make the unpopular decision,' said Mark Johnson, adjunct professor of law at the University of Kansas.

Johnson also pointed out that current voting laws may prove to have an adverse effect on minority voting.

'These laws are being challenged and in many states have been demonstrated to have an impact that is unlawful,' said Johnson."
