Group to Seek Probe of Kris Kobach & Federal Election Official

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A nonprofit public advocacy group is calling for an investigation into the conduct of a top federal elections official. Allied Progress says it will send a letter Thursday to the Inspector General of the U.S. Election Assistance Commission asking for an investigation of communications between that agency's executive director, Brian Newby, and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach. Newby and Kobach did not immediately respond to phone and email messages seeking comment. The request follows a story by The Associated Press based on emails obtained through an open records request showing that Newby used ties to Kobach to help secure the job at an agency entrusted with making voting accessible, then used the position to implement rules requiring residents of three states to provide citizenship documentation to register to vote.
