So according to this dude, Trump has picked his Attorney General:
Credible source tells me KRIS KOBACH likely Attorney General.

Immediately, liberals started freaking out like chickens with their heads cut off impersonating hysterical liberals:
Beltway libs are freaking out that Kris Kobach is on Trump's transition team

Kris Kobach as Attorney General, as @kerpen is hearing, would signal an outright war on voting rights & ballot access by the fed government.

Kris Kobach (decisively) called the League of Women Voters Communists, if you were wondering where he stands on democracy

Kris Kobach is a white nationalist and student of apartheid.

The Wichita Eagle tries to scaremonger about him, but they seem to be upset about pretty mainstream conservative ideas:
Kobach has had “a devastating impact on voting rights in the state of Kansas and, for that matter, across the country,” says Micah Kubic, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Kansas.
Kobach championed a proof-of-citizenship requirement to register to vote, a policy that has left thousands of prospective voters in suspended registration status since January 2013. Beginning this week, his office will remove any names that have been on the suspended list for more than 90 days.
He says this will save local election offices money, but the ACLU says it is primarily meant to relieve Kobach of the political embarrassment of having nearly 37,000 prospective voters in suspended registration status. He calls that ridiculous.
Kobach speaks for nearly an hour to the crowd in Lansing. He uses no notes and encourages attendees to throw him questions. He darts from topic to topic.
He compares Planned Parenthood to the infamous Nazi doctor Josef Mengele and blasts President Obama for opposing congressional Republicans’ efforts to defund it. “You couldn’t even write a science fiction book about politics in America that would be this weird,” he says.
Kobach encourages the ousting of moderate Republicans from the Kansas House, whom he accuses of being Democrats in disguise. He then brings up the Supreme Court ruling legalizing same-sex marriage and warns “it’s going to get worse, not better, for those of us who believe in the traditional family.”
This is one of his most recent appearances on Fox News where he talks about how el Trumpo could shut down “sanctuary cities”:

I mean, as long as he does it Constitutionally and doesn’t infringe on the powers enumerated to the states, I’m all for it. So are all the objections to Kobach based on liberal exaggerations? Let us know what you think in the comments…
