It seems the Democrats in Sedgwick County are so desperate to get interest in their events they have to resort to using popular Republicans! (story here)
I guess we can’t blame them, even their own elected folks in the Kansas Senate voted for Kris Kobach’s Voter ID bill – and perhaps they’ve got a great idea, it’s time for a party to celebrate!
With that in mind I’ve started a Happy Birthday Kris Kobach campaign! You can help kick this party off – just go to to the KRA Facebook page (like it while you are there!) and click the Share button under the Happy Birthday post to pass it on to your Facebook friends. Lets see if we can get this birthday party shared nationwide!
(if you don’t see the Kris Kobach photo on the KRA Facebook page, try this link )
Not on Facebook or want other ways to invite friends to join the party? You can share this blog post link or this twitter link.
Pass it on – everyone is welcome to join the party!
TOPEKA — The Kansas Republican Assembly today commented on the announcement that Secretary of State Ron Thornburgh is resigning on February 15.
“Soon-to-be-former Secretary of State Thornburgh spent the last two weeks telling fellow Republicans who we should nominate to replace him, then turned around and, with 7 days notice, handed the office to the Democrats for the last year of his term,” said KRA President Don Small. “Republicans and Democrats alike are scratching their heads over what motivated him to make this move right now. He’s taking advantage of relationships built with a firm that has a business relationship with his current office and will now use that to gain personally, while not finishing the job Kansans elected him to do.”
Small continued, “We look forward to electing Kris Kobach as Kansas Secretary of State and seeing him implement reforms that are needed to ensure the integrity of our elections, as well as overseeing the many other duties of this office.”
Kansas legislation (K.S.A. 74-9301 et seq.) was passed in 1990 authorizing the creation of the Information Network of Kansas, Inc. (INK). In 1991, INK awarded Kansas Information Consortium, Inc. (now a subsidiary of NIC Inc., [NASDAQ: EGOV]) the network manager contract and began eGovernment operations.
