Kansas Election Official Apologizes to Court for Mistake

Associated Press - June 30, 2017 10:08 am

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach has apologized for what he calls a “misunderstanding” that led to a $1,000 fine against him for misleading the court.

Kobach asked U.S. Magistrate Judge James O’Hara on Thursday to reconsider the fine and order requiring him to submit to a deposition by the American Civil Liberties Union.

O’Hara ruled Kobach mislead the court about the about the content of materials he took into a November meeting with then President-elect Donald Trump as well as a separate draft amendment to the National Voter Registration Act.

Kobach contends the lack of clarity in a court filing was a mistake compounded by last-minute editing, adding it was made in good faith. He says he will do a better job ensuring future arguments are presented more clearly.

It is a mistake because he got caught. We do not need him as our Governor

I agree with Bob Brooks, and wish to add, Kocbach is releasing our voting and private information because the orange one cannot accept the fact he lost the popular vote, and he lost it “biggly”.
My private information, your private information is at risk by this person who wants to be our Govenor, and that information is no one else business.
