Kansas Activist Launches Effort To Recall Kobach

Posted 2 years ago

By Fred Gough

TOPEKA (AP) – A Topeka activist has launched an effort to recall Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, partly over his work on immigration issues in other states.

But the effort started Wednesday by Sonny Scroggins faces big hurdles under state law.

Scroggins submitted a $100 application fee and a copy of his proposed recall petition to the lieutenant governor’s office. Among other things, he accuses Kobach of neglecting his duties.

Kobach didn’t immediately return telephone messages, but he’s said the same issues were aired during his 2010 campaign.

Scroggins’ application won’t be considered valid unless supporters gather signatures from nearly 83,000 registered voters.

Even after that, the law would require them to collect the signatures of nearly 332,000 voters within three months for an election to be held.

    SUBJECT: Secretary of State Recall THE GREAT KANSAS CHALLENGE

    FROM: SONNY SCROGGINS, Bias Busters of Kansas, Topeka, Kansas

    Due to the bias shown by Secretary of State Kris Kobach relating to the passage of voter ID laws designed to suppress the votes of those who are not republicans, his shenanigans with the “birther queen” and dereliction of duty, Bias Busters of Kansas is circulating a petition to obtain signature to get this recall issue on the ballot.

    A CLARION CALL HAS BEEEN MADE TO HELP RID MR. KOBACH OF HIS DUTIES AS SECRETARY OF STATE SO THAT HE CAN PERSECUTE NON-REPUBLICANS OR IMMIGRANTS IN THIS COUNTRY.

    A challenge has been issued to voters in all 105 Kansas counties to help with the recall of Mr. Kobach. Daily protests are being held against his unprofessional behavior, the fiasco involving the “birther” queen, bias, and the secret advisor-ship role to Mitt Romney; the same Mitt Romney who made the statement that he did not care about 47% of American citizens. Several areas in Topeka have been designated as voter anti-suppression zones to inform the community about the antics of the Secretary of State. As a result of Bias Busters’ efforts, as many as 600+ automobile traffic per day and pedestrian as well have received the information. Each time Mr. Kobach is away from his office and not conducting state business, a protest will be held in front of his office.

    To get the Lieutenant Governor to approve a request for recall of the Secretary of State, a committee of three people is needed to spearhead the issue; as many as 100 sponsors to circulate the petitions and get 10% of the votes cast in the 2010 election for the Secretary of State position, in which 83,000 registered voters signatures are needed. To allow for miscounts, Bias Busters asks for 900 SIGNATURES FROM EACH COUNTY.

    This is a request for all registered voters in their respective county who are dissatisfied with the job Mr. Kobach is “not” doing to become a committee person and or sign the petition for recall. The Topeka recall march procession of One will begin at Sumner School at 11 am on 10/23/2012 and continue to Mr. Kobach’s office.THE PUBLIC IS INVITED TO PARTICIPATE

    Fredrick Douglass stated in 1860’s “the fact that we may not succeed in the struggle should not deter us from a cause we believe to be just.”

    PRESS RELEASE

    October 28, 2012

    To: All Media Outlets

    From: Bias Busters of Kansas & Bias Busters of GreaterKC

    Subject: Itinerant Secretary of State

    Kansas City, Missouri …….………On Wednesday October 31, 2012 at 11 am, Bias Busters of Kanas will hold a protest near Brio’s Restaurant at 502 Nichols Drive on the Country Club Plaza. The actual location of the protest will be on the east side of the Plaza. Once again, Kansas’ Secretary of State is meddling in other state’s affairs rather than doing the job Kansas taxpayers are paying him to do.

    Instead of making sure that the upcoming presidential election process runs smoothly in Kansas, he is lunching (hobnobbing) with republican party members; the former House Speaker but now “irrelevant” Newt Gingrich and Todd “I’m sorry, I misspoke” Akin, the GOP candidate for Missouri’s US Senate seat.

    Politics make strange bedfellows. Kris Kobach intends to prevent all undocumented workers from entering the United States. Newt Gingrich’s position on immigration is that anyone who is unreceptive to helping undocumented workers does not have a heart. Gingrich once stated that “America also is a land of immigrants, and our lives, economy, and history have been enriched by immigration.”
