Fish v. Kobach per Zachary Mueller
Play
March 20, 2018 | 06:00 pm

Craig Lubow interviews journalist Zachary Mueller and RadioActive co-host Spencer Graves regarding the Fish v. Kobach trial.  
At issue in this trial is whether the documentary proof of citizenship requirements (DPOC) of the Kansas Secure and Fair Elections (SAFE) Act, enacted in 2011 at the insistence of Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach violates the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 ("Motor voter").  The plaintiffs, led by Steven Wayne Fish, claim that some 35,000 new voter registrations were denied, because the Kansas Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) did not record whether the applicant had presented documentary proof of citizenship, as required by the Kansas SAFE law;  at least one witness at the trial testified that he had had his birth certificate with him when he applied for a Kansas driver's license and to register to vote, though he did not remember if he had actually shown it to the DMV official.
