But unsatisfied with keeping brown people out of the United States, Kobach is now spearheading an effort to keep a brown person out of the White House.
Three of the state's top elected Republicans on Thursday determined they lacked sufficient evidence of President Barack Obama's birth records to decide whether to remove the Democratic nominee from the November ballot in Kansas.Note that it's not just Kobach entertaining this lunacy. The board includes the state's attorney general and lieutenant governor. In other words, the state's top Republican leadership is now aboard the notion that the birther movement isn't "frivolous."
The State Objections Board comprised of Secretary of State Kris Kobach, Attorney General Derek Schmidt and Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer postponed until Monday action on a complaint filed by a Manhattan resident pending review of a copy of Obama's birth certificate from Hawaii.
"I don't think it's a frivolous objection," Kobach said. "I do think the factual record could be supplemented."
Requests were to be sent to officials in Hawaii, Arizona and Mississippi in an attempt to secure copies of the president's birth records.
And to think, Republicans were outraged when we released the first poll showing the birther movement existed, claiming it was ludicrous and beyond belief. Three years later, birtherism has worked its way up to the top echelons of the Republican Party.
