Kris Kobach Says Voter Fraud a Nationwide Issue Despite Weak Evidence: No Proof Is Ever Enough For Liberals
Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach is defending President Donald Trump‘s disbanded voter fraud commission in light of revelations it turned up zero evidence of any widespread problem.
Kobach, who’s now running for governor, argued Tuesday it was a crisis that extended far beyond the borders of his state, despite his previous attempts at proving it being called anemic and biased.
“Kansans know that I came in as secretary of state promising to bring proof of citizenship and photo I.D. to Kansas elections, and we have proven many cases of people who are not U.S. citizens who registered and voted in Kansas elections,” he told Fox News’ Bill Hemmer, adding that it was a nationwide issue.
Those “many cases” to which Kobach referred to included less than 40 over the course of 20 years for one county with 130,000 voters.
But Kobach says either way, Democrats would think any number is too slim.
“The fallout so to speak is the people on the left who say well sure, Kobach, you proved a few cases, or a few hundred, or in some instances a few thousand cases of people voting fraudulently, but that’s not enough,” he said. “Of course, it’s never enough for the left. You can show them a million cases and they’ll still say that’s not enough cases of voter fraud to worry about it.”
On his gubernatorial run, Kobach said he’s optimistic about a win.
“One of our latest polls showed 20 percent were undecided, so hopefully President Trump can help them make their minds up,” he said.
