One of the hallmarks of Kris Kobach’s time as Kansas Secretary of State was his power to investigate and prosecute voter fraud. Kobach, who is now running for the Republican nomination for the United States Senate, was the only secretary of state in America with such power.
KCUR has now learned that when Kobach needed an investigator to carry out these prosecutorial powers, he hired someone with no law enforcement experience, according to an FBI investigation into missing ammunition from the secretary of state’s office.
The investigator, Craig McCullah, was Kobach’s spokesperson during most of Kobach’s time in the secretary of state’s office. But McCullah wound end up conducting criminal investigations.
