Kris Kobach, Trump’s election fraud guru, to defend his claims of illegal voting in court

Kris Kobach, Kansas’ secretary of state and President Donald Trump’s chosen election fraud expert, will defend his claims of widespread election fraud Tuesday in a major voting rights case that could put the president’s unsubstantiated assertions on trial, too.

Kobach is facing off in federal court against the American Civil Liberties Union, which argues that the Kansas law requiring voters to prove their citizenship with documents like passports or birth certificates violates the 1993 National Voter Registration Act (NVRA), the law that standardized the federal voter registration form and made it available at Department of Motor Vehicles nationwide.

“Kris Kobach has been the nation’s chief purveyor of false things about voter fraud,” Dale Ho, director of the ACLU’s Voting Rights Project, said. “Now it’s time to prove it, and I don’t think he’s going to.”
