Kris Kobach: ACLU's Discrimination Claims 'Bizarre'

The American Civil Liberties Union is on a "bizarre" mission to crush voter identification laws using the "implausible" claim they are discriminatory, Kris Kobach, the newly appointed co-chairman of President Donald Trump's Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, tells Newsmax TV.

"The ACLU is just determined that proof of citizenship must die. They do not want states asking people to prove that they are U.S. citizens when they check a box on the voter registration forms saying they're U.S. citizens," Kobach, Kansas's secretary of state, said Monday to Newsmax's Steve Malzberg.

"Some people … make what I think is an implausible claim that a person's skin color affects his ability to reach into his wallet and pull out a driver's license or to go to a government agency and get a free government ID."

Kobach said his new assignment, sparked by Trump's unproven allegations of widespread voter fraud in the 2016 presidential election, will investigate "voter fraud, voting irregularity and voter roll problems from a national perceptive."

"It's never been done. I can tell you all kinds of cases of voter fraud we found in Kansas but I can't speak to the other 49 states with authority. This commission will actually dig deep, bring out the statistics, put them on the table, let the public see them and hopefully shed a lot of light on this debate," he said.

"It's bizarre how crazy some people on the left side of the spectrum get when you start talking about voter fraud. The ACLU has been locked in battle with my state and I'm litigating that case … We're one of four states that require you to prove that you are a U.S. citizen when you registered to vote.

"We've got over 100 cases of aliens and we can identify who checked that box and said they were U.S. citizens and they worked and many of them voted. We had experts look at our state and extrapolate and say the numbers probably close to 18,000, as high as 18,000 aliens on our voter rolls.

Kobach told Malzberg non-citizens fraudulently checking the box 'I'm a U.S. citizen' at the polls has been "a real problem" in Kansas.

"Maybe they couldn't even read it and didn't know what they were signing, but the bottom line is if a non-citizen votes, whether it's unintentional or intentional, it cancels out the vote of a U.S. citizen," he said.
