When we last left Kris "K" Kobach, he was being a very bad lawyer defending a very bad, racist law. That's kind of his thing
In 1981, he gave a speech in South Africa in which he warned that the apartheid government should absolutely not give black people full suffrage,
(Trump put him in charge of his racist "voter integrity" group, but they had to disband because Kobach really sucks at everything he does. )
In fact, he has earned quite a bit of money
doing just that. His scam was:
* fear-mongering about "illegals" in small towns
* getting paid to write bad, racist laws
* failing to defend his bad, racists laws (because he is a very bad lawyer)
In Fremont, Neb., the city raised property taxes to pay for Kobach’s services. None of the towns are currently enforcing the laws he helped craft.
Ha ha - conservatives had to raise taxes.
K."K". Kobach is now running for Governor of KS. The Republican primary was Tuesday, and the votes are too close to call. So there will be a recount. The Sec. State is in charge of the recount.
