Proof of Citizenship for Voter Registration Found Unlawful

I had a great deal of fun following this lawsuit during the trial. See https://upload.democraticunderground.com/100210350534 and https://upload.democraticunderground.com/10142087389 and https://upload.democraticunderground.com/100210756328 this trial was a great soap opera. The 10th Court of Appeals just affirmed the trial court https://politicalwire.com/2020/04/29/proof-of-citizenship-for-voter-registration-unlawful/

“A federal appeals court panel ruled Wednesday that a Kansas law requiring proof of citizenship to register to vote is unconstitutional, upholding a judge’s injunction that had banned its use,” the New York Times reports.

“The law was championed by former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who led President Trump’s now-defunct voter fraud commission and was a leading source for Trump’s unsubstantiated claim that millions of immigrants living in the U.S. illegally may have voted in the 2016 election.”

Rick Hasen: “Make no mistake–this is a huge victory… This is a huge win for voters, and it clears away a law that disenfranchised thousands but prevented no appreciable amount of voter fraud.”

The icing on the cake is this tweet by Kobach
