Appeals Court Bats Down Kobach Request To Overturn Contempt Finding

Well, Kobach IS contemptible, so this ruling simply confirms it.

So they denied it because he screwed up the procedure?

Wow. Nobody could have seen that coming.

Racking up so many high profile wins… wonder how his gubernatorial aspirations are going.

So, it’s probably good that Kobach, an attorney, is Secretary of State rather than Attorney General of Kansas. He has an excuse for all the screw-ups in court: “Hey, I’m a secretary, not an attorney.”

In other news, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach appealed to the State’s legislature for help wiping his own butt.

Dumbshit. Guess that happens when you represent yourself and you think you know everything.

a lawyer who represents himself has a fool for a client.

And the legislature should follow court precedence and claim since “waste” is still coming out, it’s premature to wipe it.

He still hasn’t learned how the federal court system (or any court) works. This guy was king of the hill as long as he could use administrative law to deny people the right to vote. Put this punk in a real court and he’s lost.

Her ruling on the merits of the proof-of-citizenship requirement, which was challenged by the ACLU and others, is expected in the weeks to come. She is also still being briefed on the attorneys fees she is requiring Kobach to pay related to the contempt motion.

Has the Kansas legislature taken steps to protect the taxpayer’s money from Kobach wanting to use it?

Can the judge banish Kobach to Puerto Rico? He could feel that he accomplished something by living among those that are disenfranchised.

That doens’t work too well for him. A good legal secretary often knows more about court rules and procedures than her boss does.

ETA: A good legal secretary . . . her boss. Damned sexist comment.

A few months in jail might settle him down.

So after the contempt penalties are finalized, he will waste more taxpayer money appealing again. I wonder if the appellate court can hold him in contempt too.

Can he claim inadequate assistance of counsel?

Umm, no. In fact, the Kansas legislature voted down this exact rule. So the SoS’s office can legally use general fund dollars to pay fines handed down by the federal court.

R answer: No worries, we’ll take the money away from those lousy librul moochers or minority public school brats. We won’t have to cancel a corporate subsidy or hurt anyone that actually voted for us.
