Election Integrity Czarina Won't Cooperate With Himself

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach will not hand over information to his own commission.

“In Kansas, the Social Security number is not publicly available. … Every state receives the same letter but we’re not asking for it if it’s not publicly available,” Kobach told the Kansas City Star Friday. It was a change in stance from Thursday, the paper reported, when Kobach said Kansas would provide all requested information to the commission.

Kobach added Friday, hedging somewhat: “If the commission decides that they would like to receive Social Security numbers to a secure site in order to remove false positives, then we would have to double check and make sure Kansas law permits.”

Is this the most insane administration in the history of the US? I'd be willing to bet on it.
“If Social Security number is not publicly available, and it is not publicly available in most states, then we aren’t requesting it,” he said.

“So why’d you ask for it?” Velshi interjected.

“Well, because, if it is publicly available — if the public can get it — then the commission would like it, too,” Kobach said.
Then let the Commission get it the way anybody else has to.

Also, Commission Chair Mike Pence's state of Indiana essentially told them to fuck off, too.  As did twenty+ other states.

...but hey, do what you will anyway.

Great response from Mississippi's Secretary of State Delbert Hoseman:


UPDATE:  I don't see any fully complying.
