Why was Kobach on delinquent tax list?

kobach2One of the things a candidate for public office never wants to see is his name on a list of delinquent taxpayers. But Secretary of State Kris Kobach had the embarrassment of having to explain why he was on the Douglas County list of delinquent property taxes that was published in the Lawrence Journal-World. Kobach lives in Wyandotte County but owns property in Douglas County. Kobach told the Journal-World that he challenged the valuation on the property but either didn’t receive or didn’t notice the revised valuation notice. Kobach paid the $614.32 tax bill on Aug. 13, the same day the delinquent tax list was published in the newspaper.
