ACLU v Kobach trial ends with Trump’s vote “sheriff” confessing via deposition of scheme given to Trump to block new voters nationwide.
Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach blocked ONE IN SEVEN Kansans from registering to vote because they could not provide passports or certified birth certificates. Almost all those blocked were new young voters and older poor voters — i.e. Democrats.
Kobach could not identify a single one of these as a non-citizen.
This blockade of mostly Democratic voters is justified by Kobach’s (and Donald Trump’s) claim that the number of non-citizen voters he found (5 over twenty years out of a BILLION ballots cast), is just the “tip of the iceberg.”
Dale Ho of the ACLU ended his closing argument: “The iceberg, on close inspection, your honor, is more of an ice cube.”
The ACLU also released a copy of Kris Kobach’s deposition in which he confesses that, as the Palast team charged in January 2017, that he proposed to Trump a scheme to change the National Voter Registration Act to allow this Kansas passport-or-birth certificate rule to become national law. That would, our experts calculate, cost nearly one million new voters to lose their vote by the 2020 Presidential election.
