Kris Kobach fined for misleading court and refusing to produce previously exposed Trump memo - LA Times
Folks, this is another Trumpian "LOOK OVER THERE!" distraction for his continued personal failures and the Russia investigation. And WE are paying for the examination of an old conspiracy theory? Ridiculous
Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach co-chairs President Trump's voter fraud commission, which is tasked with finding evidence to support the president's unsubstantiated claim that there was widespread voter fraud in the 2016 election.
Kobach recently sent letters to all 50 states asking them to provide the commission with their entire voter files. The request specifically spelled out sensitive pieces of information the commission wants to obtain, including voters names, party affiliations, military status and the last four digits of voters' Social Security numbers.
As secretary of state, Kobach is tasked with supplying Kansas's data to the Trump commission. There's just one problem: He won't be able to fully comply with his own request.

And the bipartisan chorus of NO has commenced in at least half the states .. some of whom haven't even received the letter!
President Donald Trump’s commission on election integrity is asking all 50 states and the District of Columbia for data from state voter rolls and California, Virginia and many other states have already sent a message right back refusing to do so.
That includes Mississippi’s Secretary of State who responded to the request, “They can go jump in the Gulf of Mexico and Mississippi is a great State to launch from."

But hey, we can trust Kris and his buddy Donald. They'll keep our personal information private and NEVER consider using it for voter intimidation or role purging .. amiright?
