Now that Kris Kobach is on his way out, Kansas officials have rediscovered their backbones.

Last Monday, Attorney General Derek Schmidt announced his intention to take back the authority to prosecute cases of voter fraud from that of the Secretary of State.

In 2015, both houses of the Kansas legislature voted to make Kobach the only secretary of state in the country to have the power to file criminal charges against voter fraud as well as stiffen penalties for several voting offenses from misdemeanors to felonies.
