Kris Kobach

It doesn’t look like things improved for Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach on Wednesday as he defended the state’s proof-of-citizenship requirements in federal court for a second day.

Early reports out of Kansas City, Kan. on Wednesday seem to indicate that the legal scholar is still having trouble admitting evidence and questioning witnesses about depositions.

Here’s one report filed by Talking Points Memo, which also has a live blog of the trial.

The former president of the League of Women Voters testified that voter registration efforts were hindered after the proof-of-citizenship requirements went into effect.  Here’s an account from The Associated Press via the Lawrence Journal-World.

Kobach asked to bring a gun to court, The Star’s Bryan Lowry reports.
