Kris Kobach, the Secretary of State-elect in Kansas who ran on a platform of ending supposedly endemic voter fraud in Kansas, told TPM that it wasn’t yet clear if voter fraud was an issue in the election.
Speaking with TPM after a panel on civil rights at the Federalist Society’s National Lawyers Convention on Thursday, Kobach said he would have to wait until all the reports came in.
“There have been a few cases where I’ve heard allegations of voter fraud, but we’re just a few weeks out from the election,” Kobach said.
“I think the bottom line is voter fruad is an issue in which we should all be interested in stopping,” Kobach said.
Kobach also said that the example that he gave of a 108 year old voter still on the rolls — a man who turned out to be 78 years old and very much alive — showed that voter rolls needed to be cleaned up.
