Prosecutors Question Kobach's Claims of Voter Fraud in Kansas

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach wants lawmakers to give him the power to press voter fraud charges, saying prosecutors don't pursue cases he refers.  The state's top federal prosecutor says Kobach hasn't sent him any cases.  The conservative Republican publicly chastised Kansas-based U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom late last year for not prosecuting cases referred by Kobach.  But in a November 6 letter sent by Grissom to Kobach and obtained by The Associated Press, the prosecutor said his office received no voter fraud cases from Kobach.  Kobach acknowledged to the AP last week that his office hasn't sent Grissom any suspected voter fraud cases. He says he was citing cases referred by his predecessor.  Grissom says the FBI determined two cases referred before Kobach took office in 2011 weren't fraud.
