judge: Videotape of Kobach deposition won't be made public

Judge was a bush appointee I believe...Anyway kohacks attorney
didn't want it shown because it might hurt the little fucker during
the election run up...And that the public's interest was served
during the federal trial...I say bull s#$t!!! The public needs
to see how this jerk has hurt the voting processes in kansaas,
how he lied about the need for more stringent voter registration
laws..


KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - A federal judge says a videotaped deposition of Secretary of State Kris Kobach won't be released to the public.

The Kansas City Star reports Judge Julie Robinson's ruling on Thursday prevents the American Civil Liberties Union from releasing the tape.

The deposition includes details about Kobach's private talks with President Donald Trump and members of Congress. A transcript of the video is public.

Robinson said the public's interest was served when the deposition was viewed at a federal trial earlier this year and when the transcript was unsealed.

An attorney in Kobach's office argued the videotape could be used for attack ads in Kobach's campaign for governor.

An ACLU attorney suggested Kobach didn't want the videotape released because it detailed efforts to make it more difficult for citizens to vote.

2. I believe this is the redacted deposition transcript:

It looks like the sections detailing "private talks with President Donald Trump and members of Congress" have largely been redacted.
