Secretary of State Kris Kobach has long peddled phony claims of voter fraud. But his latest push to make it illegal to take a picture of your election ballot is just goofy. Kobach said that, historically, ballot photos have been used by voters as evidence to show someone how they voted in return for payment or favors. Seriously? Where is that happening now? The reason some people take pictures of their ballots and post them on Facebook or Twitter is that they are proud of voting – an act that Kobach has been bent on making harder to do.
