DOJ: Kobach Can't Speak To What Will Be Done With Voter Fraud Panels Data

The Justice Department, in court filings Thursday, pushed back on a federal judge’s order that Kris Kobach file a declaration clarifying how his now-defunct voter fraud commission is handling state voter roll data.

The filing claimed that since the commission was disbanded by President Trump last week, Kobach should not be considered a defendant in the relevant lawsuit — which was brought by the ACLU of Florida — and that the DOJ attorneys should not be considered his counsel. The Kansas secretary of state had served as the commission’s vice chair and de facto leader.

“Even if Mr. Kobach were to provide the Court with an updated declaration, his declaration would not assist the Court in resolving plaintiffs’ motion,” the filing said.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Jonathan Goodman had ordered the DOJ to file a Kobach declaration to update a letter he had sent to Florida in July about how the commission would use the data. Instead, the DOJ argued Thursday, the court should look to a declaration being filed by Charles Herndon, the director of White House Information Technology.

1. Kobach should have no say whatsoever.

Not that I trust DOJ either at this point, but Kobach is the last person on Earth who should have any access to or say about voter data.
