Statement on Kobach’s Support of Arpaio Pardon

Topeka, KS – After crafting laws and tactics found by the courts to promote racial profiling, Kobach is now defending Trump’s pardon of a sheriff convicted of criminal contempt.

Considering his own numerous run-ins with the judicial system, one of which ended in his sanctioning for “deceptive conduct,” Kobach’s actions shouldn’t be surprising. But for someone who is vying to be the next governor of Kansas, they should be disqualifying.

Kansans need a governor who will right an economy that’s been floundering for the past eight years under Brownback, not one who will abet racism, waste more of Kansans’ taxes on legal fees, and undermine the basic rule of law.
