“Kobach can be investigated by citizen grand jury, Kansas Court of Appeals rules”

KC Star:

The Kansas Court of Appeals ruled Friday that a citizen grand jury can proceed with an investigation of Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach in Douglas County.

Steven Davis, a Democratic candidate for the Kansas House, first filed a petition in 2016 to investigate Kobach on the allegation that he had intentionally failed to register voters who had tried to register through the state’s online registration system.

The Douglas County District Court rejected the petition, finding a lack of sufficient evidence to support the allegations.

In 2017, the Kansas Legislature amended the law to enable people to appeal when the petition for a grand jury is rejected, Davis said.
