In 2018, Kansas Secretary of Condition Kris Kobach netted himself a contempt discovering, a judicially mandated stint in CLE courses on Kansas process or evidence, and a $1,000 fine for “deliberately making an attempt to mislead the court” in the study course of a unsuccessful endeavor to protect that state’s evidence of citizenship regulation. Kansas taxpayers had to cough up $1.9 million to the ACLU for Kobach’s antics.

He then embarked on a next profession as a touring salesman of sorts, advertising his lawful expert services to modest towns hoping to put into action his handcrafted voter ID rules, only to find on their own trapped with millions of pounds in attorneys fees following courts blocked the statutes as unconstitutional. Following which he entered personal exercise, counting amid his consumers the group-funded border wall scam which resulted in numerous federal convictions for revenue laundering, and in which Steve Bannon was indicted federally, pardoned by Trump, then re-indicted by the point out of New York.

FFS, this guy is so incompetent that he submitted a temporary in federal court docket with the note “PROBABLY NOT Well worth ARGUING”! Who on earth would seek the services of this dipshit as a attorney?


Previous night time, voters in the Sunflower Condition opted to hand this jackass the attorney general’s career, just 4 years soon after they were being so appalled by his actions that they place Democrat Laura Kelly in the condition home. In reality, they re-elected her final evening, even as they returned Kobach to business office — genuinely the young children of the corn Wheat Condition consist of multitudes.

“You should really be an attorney, and ideally you should be an legal professional who’s completed and who has techniques in an region that’s pertinent for the state’s office environment,” Kobach explained to the Kansas Metropolis Star, evidently without the need of irony.

He went on to say that his priorities are “the fentanyl plague that is killing so lots of Kansans” and  “protect[ing] girls’ athletics.” He’s also preparing to open up a division in the state’s attorney’s place of work devoted to suing the Biden administration and programs to assume about new fits to file though “having my breakfast.” No doubt this very last is a precedence for the people today of Kansas. Perhaps he and Texas AG Ken Paxton can group up for something really stunning to dump on the Supreme Courtroom.

It’s all terrifying … till you bear in mind how totally incompetent this goober is, which makes it simply gross and cringey.

Congrats, Kansas, on no matter what crazy clown shit is about to be submitted by your prime prosecutor. Your circus, your monkey.
