Why Kansas' Kris Kobach resigned from the We Build the Wall board [View all]

Kobach is a hack attorney who was sanctioned for not knowing the law when he tried to defend his voter suppression law a while back. I am not surprised that Kobach was counsel of and affiliated with this scam


It’s always best to be alert on Friday afternoons, when politicians have a habit of releasing news they hope to see buried. Take this Kansas City Star report, for example.

Former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, the Republican candidate for state attorney general, resigned Friday from the board of directors of We Build the Wall after the nonprofit organization was indicted on allegations of money laundering, conspiracy and fraud.

The We Build the Wall organization was already highly controversial, but it reclaimed a spotlight last week when prosecutors in New York indicted Steve Bannon on charges including money laundering and scheming to defraud. The same indictment also charged the group itself.....

And with this in mind, it seems his association with a group suspected of running an illegal grift operation might rub some voters the wrong way. The Star added, “Kobach had been the organization’s general counsel, in addition to serving on the board.” He’s apparently resigned both positions, at least as of late last week.
