The following statement is attributed to Senate Democratic Leader Anthony Hensley:
“It’s pretty ironic that Kris Kobach would question my public service record when he has been nothing more than a part time Secretary of State who is the master of voter suppression. When he’s not using the state airplane to travel to political functions, he’s working with white supremacist hate groups to intimidate minorities and immigrants. That is why I have called him the most racist politician in America.
“Kris Kobach is the reason I introduced a bill to prohibit outside employment of certain state officials, such as the Secretary of State. While he boasts his outside employment, his track record demonstrates that he has fleeced his clients for hundreds of thousands of dollars while leaving them nearly bankrupt from defending unconstitutional laws he drafted. 
“It is also politically convenient for Kris Kobach to be in favor of addressing the revolving door with legislators becoming lobbyists. Since 2007, I have introduced bills to close the revolving door. On these bills, Kobach was nowhere to be found.
“Kris Kobach has proven that he is incapable of draining the swamp because he is neck deep in the swamp.”
