“APNewsBreak: Kobach Sought Pardon For VP Of Corporate Donor”

AP:

 Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach unsuccessfully sought a governor’s pardon for a corporate campaign donor’s vice president whose crime, police said, involved threatening a cab driver by putting a gun to his head.

Kobach, a Republican and leading candidate for Kansas governor, approached then-GOP Gov. Sam Brownback’s chief counsel about clemency for Kansas City-area resident Ryan Bader in August 2017, state records show. Kobach was Bader’s attorney and initiated the pardon request three years after a state judge expunged the attempted robbery case from Bader’s record.
