GOP Plans To Scrutinize Kansas Election

KSAL StaffOctober 29, 2014

The Kansas Republican Party plans to have a network of lawyers ready to watch voting on Election Day for potential legal problems.

The GOP plans to have lawyers on standby, as they watch for what state GOP party director Clayton Barber calls “dubious actions” by Democrats. The newspaper says the plans were detailed in an email from Barber.

The email says poll watchers will be watching for any improper procedures, illegal electioneering near polling places and improper contact with voters.

Jason Perkey, director of the Kansas Democratic Party, said Democrats will defend everyone’s right to vote. He also objected to Barker’s accusation that Democrats engage in “dubious tactics.”

Barker says he was not referring to Democrats specifically but to any possibility of voter fraud.
