Federal Lawsuit Against Secretary Kobach
Topeka, KS – In response to the federal lawsuit filed today against Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach that seeks to halt his removal of nearly 36,000 Kansas voters from the voting rolls, Kansas Democratic Party Executive Director Kerry Gooch issued the following statement:
Today’s lawsuit is an effort to prevent Kris Kobach from preventing even more Kansans from voting. There are real consequences to our democracy when a politician like Secretary Kobach denies citizens their basic freedoms. Kansans deserve a secretary of state focused on helping people across the state vote – not one obsessed with putting up road blocks and preventing law-abiding citizens from participating in our democracy. Today the Kansas Democratic Party stands in support of these voters who are seeking to protect the rights of all Kansans.
