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."

"It's bizarre how crazy some people on the left side of the spectrum get when you start talking about voter fraud."

So now the ACLU wants (for all intents and purposes) a license to cheat. I am sure over the years the ACLU has done some good; let me think..............., but in my humble opinion they should not get involved in any political controversies and stick to real issues involving civil liberties. It is hypocrisy that one needs to show ID to get on a plane, buy cigarettes or liquor, get SNAP, but not to vote????

I applaud Kansas for trying to get rid of voter fraud BUT a drivers license or MVA issued ID card is not proof of citizenship it requires a birth certificate and that is what should be required of anyone voting.Period.
