Kobach Supports Trump’s Unsubstantiated Voting Fraud Claims

KSAL StaffNovember 30, 2016

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach is supporting President-elect Donald Trump’s unsubstantiated claim that he would have won the popular vote if “millions” of people hadn’t voted illegally.

Kobach offered no evidence Wednesday of specific cases of election fraud this year.

Instead, he cited a large-scale study of the 2008 election to suggest several million non-citizens living in the U.S. could have voted illegally. He also argued that the overwhelming majority also would have supported Democrat Hillary Clinton.

The study Kobach cited surveyed nearly 33,000 people, including a small number of non-citizens who said they voted. But the conclusion that it shows significant illegal voting has been disputed.

An American Civil Liberties Union spokeswoman called Kobach’s assertion “plainly false.”

Kobach is a potential Trump nominee for U.S. homeland security secretary.
