    On day hundreds of new votes found in Kansas, Colyer calls on Kobach to recuse self

    Another election in trouble due to GOPers. KS SoS "directing" election that he's running in...will they allow him to certify election results in favor of himself? Bad JuJu here.

    On day hundreds of new votes found in Kansas, Colyer calls on Kobach to recuse self
    The gap between Gov. Jeff Colyer and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach narrowed to roughly 100 votes Thursday as the rival Republicans began to show signs that the election may ultimately be decided in a courthouse.

    Colyer released a letter at 5 p.m. calling on Kobach to recuse himself from providing advice to local election officials. The letter comes after multiple counties reported that the election night totals on the secretary of state’s website were inaccurate, further clouding the results of a historically close election.

    “It has come to my attention that your office is giving advice to county election officials — as recently as a conference call yesterday — and you are making public statements on national television which are inconsistent with Kansas law and may serve to suppress the vote in the ongoing primary election process,” Colyer said in a letter.

    Colyer’s campaign spokesman, Kendall Marr, explained in a phone call that the campaign has heard that Kobach’s office told county clerks to disregard ballots with a smudged postmark. Marr said that ballots received before a Friday deadline need to be counted.

    I wonder if today's Republican Party is the sleaziest political party we've ever had in the US?

    They have to be at least in the Top 5.

    I can't believe Kris Kobach said non citizens voted in a Republican primary. Yeah, sure someone is going to risk going to jail just so your ass stays on or off the actual election ballot. Now I have heard everything.

    From the link in the OP
    "In one more development Thursday, Kobach suggested in a statement to The Star that noncitizens could have voted in the primary election."

    Kobach plans to recuse self from vote count process in face of pressure from Colyer

    How is it legal for a SoS to be the one to certify the vote, or to interfere in any way with the count, in an election in which he is a candidate?

    “We don’t have an official recusal,” Marr said. “We want to see what that looks like tomorrow. We want to make it’s not a symbolic recusal. The secretary of state has a substantive role in this process and the recusal needs to be substantive.”

    Marr added that “on top of the recusal, we’re also asking that the secretary of state stop giving incorrect information to the counties, particularly related to the mail-in ballots.”
