TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) Former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach acknowledged that he failed to properly supervise his staff while representing himself in that role during federal court proceedings in a voter registration lawsuit, according to a diversion agreement reached with state regulators.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the confidential agreement resolves complaints made to the Kansas Disciplinary Administrators Office about Kobachs conduct during litigation that successfully challenged a state law that had required people to show proof of U.S. citizenship to register to vote.
Details of the disciplinary offices findings arent disclosed under Kansas rules, but a public notice of the agreement says Kobach stipulates he didnt properly supervise lawyers and non-lawyers.
