Kobach: Election Fraud Cases Filed in 2 Kansas Counties

Associated Press - October 13, 2015 11:26 am

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach is scheduled to meet this weekend with President-elect Donald Trump.

Secretary of State Kris Kobach says his office has filed three criminal election fraud cases in two counties alleging people voted in Kansas while doing so in another state.

Kobach confirmed Tuesday that his office filed two cases in Johnson County in the Kansas City area and one case in Sherman County in northwest Kansas.

The cases were filed Friday. Copies of the complaints were not available immediately.

Kobach told The Associated Press that each complaint deals with alleged double-voting incidents in 2010.

Kobach said the Johnson County cases were filed against a married couple and alleges each also voted in Arkansas. The Sherman County case alleges a man who voted there also voted in Colorado.

They’re the first cases filed under a new law giving Kobach’s office prosecutorial powers.

How about an investigation in Saline county.

Three alledged fraud cases in five years in office, with a salary of $86,003 per year. That’s $143,334 per fraud case (not including trial expenses). A bargain in any cash starved state.
