Why is #KrisKobach so Dangerous? soundcloud.com/user-835943867…
#Kobach, for all his wacky moves, has degrees from Yale, Harvard, and Oxford. He is a brilliant and dangerous spider in the Right Wing web. soundcloud.com/user-835943867…
#Kobach's a master criminal, in the sense that he has violated the law again, and again, and again. But he’s brilliant at coming up with sophisticated and bogus arguments, making stuff sound reasonable and legal, when it’s not even close to it. soundcloud.com/user-835943867…

Kansas City Star: #Kobach promised cities help. It cost them millions — and powered his political rise kansascity.com/news/politics-…
"#Kobach used his work in Valley Park to attract other clients, with sometimes disastrous effects on the municipalities.... Farmers Branch, Texas, wound up owing $7 million in legal bills..." kansascity.com/news/politics-…
What's missing from this story is our investigatrix Badpenny’s crucial finding — as featured in The Best Democracy Money Can Buy — that $100,000 of the money paid to #KrisKobach by Farmers Branch, TX came from the #Kochs via several shell foundations. amazon.com/Best-Democracy…

Trump may name #KrisKobach as Immigration Czar. Their real agenda: 2020 vote suppression. gregpalast.com/trump-may-name…
It’s an especially cute move by Trump, as this newly crafted position, unlike an appointment to other cabinet level posts, will not require Senate approval, not even a hearing. gregpalast.com/trump-may-name…
I’ve been investigating #KKKobach for six years. He's the guy who drafted Arizona’s notorious “SB 1070” law which the ACLU dubbed the, “Driving While Brown law” – found unconstitutional by Federal Courts. latimes.com/nation/la-na-a…

After six years of investigating #KrisKobach’s Interstate #Crosscheck voter purge program, the entire racially biased, violently partisan #VoterSuppression tactic is on the verge of collapse gregpalast.com/interstate-cro…
Ten states in total have now withdrawn from the Interstate #Crosscheck system, including in the past few weeks, Arizona, Colorado, Pennsylvania and in alliance with my co-litigant, @RevJJackson, the state of Illinois gregpalast.com/illinois-drops…
And Kansas, after #KKKobach lost his race for Governor, has stopped creating the purge list for #Crosscheck states gregpalast.com/interstate-cro…

#Kansas voting board crushes a challenge to #KrisKobach’s 343 vote "win" in the Republican gubernatorial primary. The judges: 3 GOP party hacks led by #Kobach’s assistant, Eric Rucker. kansascity.com/news/politics-… #KansasPrimary
The challenger, @Davis_Hammet of @loud_light, told me that, weirdly, Brant Laue also voted against counting about 4,000 uncounted ballots—even though Laue, in his day job as Chief Counsel for Governor Jeff Colyer, had written an official letter DEMANDING Kobach count the votes.
There’s democracy and then there’s #Kansas. It’s easy to tell them apart.

As our legal team sends out notices of federal law violations, the vote snatchers are capitulating one by one — #Colorado gave up Friday! gregpalast.com/im-in-wichita-… #StopTheSteal
Here in Wichita, #Kobach is hiding. Should I check #Koch HQ? Bad news for you, Kris: Top #Kansas voting rights attorney Bob Eye will take you on for us—pro bono (my favorite two words from a lawyer). gregpalast.com/im-in-wichita-… #StopTheSteal
Your donations have allowed me to contract with a killah database expert to crosscheck the #Crosscheck lists. We’re going to make the hundreds of thousands of names of The Purged searchable — so you can save your vote! palastinvestigativefund.org/?StopTheStealA…

I am so grateful for donations. #Kobach’s stone wall is expensive to climb. And we also have to fly the whole crew to Atlanta on the #BrianKemp hunt. gregpalast.com/im-in-wichita-… #StopTheSteal
Thanks to @StaceyAbrams for showing me another purge trick she spied by viewing the files — removing voters because they’ve moved *INTO* #Georgia!!!
And thanks to our researcher and cameraman @zdroberts for sweet-talking a Kemp flunky into turning over #Georgia's secret #Crosscheck list :) projects.aljazeera.com/2014/double-vo…

I’m suing Trump’s “Purge’n General” #KrisKobach.

@RevJJackson is joining me. Will you?

#StopTheSteal
With the pro bono help of the firm of Mirer Mazzocchi & Julien, we are filing under the National Voter Registration Act to get the names of every one of the million voters purged from voter rolls using #KrisKobach’s infamous #Crosscheck program. gregpalast.com/im-in-wichita-…
We’ve sent legal notices to all 27 states in #KrisKobach’s #Crosscheck program to turn over their lists. While #Kobach has stonewalled us, a number of states including #Michigan and #Oklahoma, have turned over their hit lists rather than face us in court. gregpalast.com/im-in-wichita-…

#Crosscheck “stymied"? #NewHampshire and #Maine JOINED the program. And #Indiana is absolutely still in the program and purged voters simply because they were on #Kobach’s list — which even Kobach says violated the NVRA. salon.com/2018/08/06/red…
Furthermore, the Supreme Court APPROVED #Crosscheck removals if a POSTCARD is sent and not returned. gregpalast.com/ohios-junk-mai… #PurgeByPostcard #VoterSuppression #ElectionFraud
#INDIANA IS STILL REMOVING VOTERS USING #CROSSCHECK. I’m not guessing. I have filed formal open records demands in 27 Crosscheck states — and, with @RevJJackson, sent formal notice of intent to file federal suit for Crosscheck records. gregpalast.com/suing-ohio-kan… #StopTheSteal

To steal the #KansasPrimary, Secretary of State #KrisKobach’s using all the tricks on incumbent Republican Gov. #JeffColyer that the GOP has used against Black voters for years... gregpalast.com/ohio-special-e…
Tossing away provisional ballots and absentee ballots on cockamamie excuses; votes locked irretrievably in machines. No tears, #Colyer: you were a cheerleader for #Kobach’s vote games! docs.wixstatic.com/ugd/e21a55_397… #KrisKobach #JeffColyer #KansasPrimary #ElectionFraud

#Maine SoS Dunlap accuses Kobach of "troubling bias" & calls his claim that there's huge numbers of fraudulent voters "bizarre". Yet Dunlap is the ONLY Demo SoS to join Kobach’s bizarre & biased Crosscheck—which threatens to purge 1,062,818 Maine voters! washingtonpost.com/news/politics/…
Dupe? Dullard? Or Duplicitous? Dunlap, are you just another duplicitous politician singing different tunes to different audiences? I intend to find out: I’m suing your a** in 40 days unless you cough up the names of the thousands of voters you've purged on #Kobach’s say-so.

Whoa! Before we celebrate a judge’s smack-down of #KrisKobach, let me warn you that this race-baiting, democracy-hating creep-o is also one of the sharpest legal minds in America. thinkprogress.org/judge-orders-k…
The fact that this Harvard-Yale-Oxford graduate, like most law professors, doesn’t know spam about court procedure doesn't mean you should underestimate what this Satanic vote-thief can do. kansascity.com/news/politics-…
#KrisKobach #VoterSuppression #StopTheSteal
Here’s a tip for betting readers: #KrisKobach will win at the Supreme Court. Only his arrogance will defeat him — and our vigilance. gregpalast.com/suing-ohio-kan… #KKKobach #VoterSuppression #StopTheSteal

Don’t be fooled by news of Trump's Executive Order dissolving the so-called Commission on Election Integrity. Trump is not ending the #KrisKobach scheme to attack, he’s moving it into Homeland Security as per Kobach’s original plan.
#Kobach gloats that Homeland Security is exempt from Freedom of Information Act demands and public hearings — that was part his original plan given to Trump. #FOIA
#Kobach claims Homeland Security can REQUIRE states to turn over voter records and can secretly gather lists of "double" or "alien" voters — this is #KKKobach’s "#Crosscheck" on steroids.
