Federal judge scolds Kobach for violating her trust at contempt hearing

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach could be facing a contempt order from a federal court after a judge on Tuesday tore into the Kansas Republican about repeatedly skirting her orders.

U.S. District Judge Julie Robinson chastised Kobach, a candidate for governor, at a contempt hearing for suggesting that her previous orders have left any room for ambiguity.

"I've had to police this over and over and over again, Robinson said with frustration during the hearing in Kansas City, Kan.

Robinson in 2016 ordered Kobach to fully register thousands of Kansas voters who had registered at the DMV but had failed to provide proof of citizenship, such as a birth certificate or passport, as required by a Kansas law that Kobach crafted.

Republican scumbags have infested government everywhere.

1. And no matter how dumb they are,

they're convinced that they're smarter and more clever than everybody else.

GOP, the Dunning-Kruger Party.

2. Kobach's already been fined $1,000 for lying to Judge Robinson

Looks like he wants to spend a little time in the federal lock-up, the way he's going. The linked article does a good job of recapping Kobach's deliberate obtuseness in following Judge Robinson's previous orders, and the lengths he's gone to in pretending he doesn't understand the clear language of her orders.

It's never a good sign when the judge pounds her desk remonstrating with you.
