When Roosevelt appointed Joe Kennedy to head the new Securities and Exchange Commission, he said "It takes a thief to catch a thief." Now Trump has appointed Kobach to look for voter fraud.
Kobach's rise to power reminds me a bit of the doctor in Urula LeGuin's The Lathe of Heaven.
Kobach somehow became a law professor at my alma mater UMKC. He then parleyed that into a race for Kansas Secstate. he then got the legislature to give him prosecution powers so he could chase voter fraud. He was on Trump's transition team, I think. Now he has a national pulpit. We'll see what he does with it.
