Dear editor:

There’s a whole lot of fraud going on!

In your November 16 article “GOP stole the state show,” the obvious was stated: the voter registration roll in Kansas has more Republicans registered than Democrats.

Therefore, Kansas voters statewide typically elect Republican candidates.

If I am correct, only three counties, out of one hundred and five, have more Democratic voters currently registered than Republicans. The 2010 election simply produced another victory for Republican candidates in state offices and in both chambers of the state legislature.

However, one victorious Republican candidate, Kris Kobach, a former Kansas GOP chairman, campaigned for Secretary of State, against current Democratic Secretary Chris Biggs, using the allegation of “voter fraud” in the Kansas election process. According to the Wichita Eagle, September 24, 2010, candidate “Kobach has accused Biggs and his predecessors of ignoring problems with voter fraud.”

A report by Mary Sanchez, in the Kansas City Star, September 23, 2010, accused candidate Kobach of wanting to rewrite the U.S. Constitution, which gives citizenship to natural born Americans, “just to win votes.”

Nonetheless, Secretary Kobach must now substantiate his campaign allegation to actually be more than political poppycock. As a citizen who has served as an election official at more than one county wide election and knows each polling place is composed of an equal number of Republicans and Democrats, at every phase of the process, I have not seen or heard of any illegal conduct at any polling place or within the entire election process.

If there is any real evidence of voter fraud in Kansas, as your headline says, the “GOP stole the state show,” because the majority of county clerks in Kansas are Republicans?
So, best of luck to the Kansas Republican Party in exposing the fraud.
