One of the biggest pieces of shit in the country is running for higher office.
"Papers please" anti-immigration law author and delusional voter fraud witch hunter, Kris Kobach, has announced that he's running for governor of Kansas.
From the Kansas City Star:
Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who has championed some of the strictest voting laws in the nation, announced a campaign for governor Thursday in Lenexa. [...]
The announcement at Thompson Barn in Lenexa comes two days after the Kansas Legislature repealed Gov. Sam Brownback’s landmark tax cuts to fill the state’s budget hole, a move that prompted Kobach to say it’s time to “drain the swamp” in Topeka.
Kobach will face at least two other Republicans in the state's gubernatorial primary, including oil baron Wink Hartman and former state Representative Ed O’Malley.
It's my sincere hope that moderates can build on their momentum in the 2016 election and elect responsible legislators who will reject the agenda of Sam Brownback and his possible replacements. The fact that the Republican-controlled state legislature just repealed Sam Brownback's disastrous tax cuts may offer some encouragement.
Voters will have a clear choice between moving forward as a state or retrenching themselves in the same bullshit they've been mired in for the past decade. If Kris Kobach were to win, I have no doubt that he'd double down on the policies of Sam Brownback and destroy what remains of the state.
