Kobach's campaign paid Kansan known to post racist comments on white nationalist site

WASHINGTON -- Kansas Republican Kris Kobach’s Senate campaign paid an Olathe man who regularly posted hateful comments about Jews and racial minorities on a white nationalist website.

Kobach’s campaign paid Joe Suber $500 for field coordinating services in September, according to the Republican’s latest campaign finance report. Suber also filed the paperwork with the state of Kansas creating the Kobach for Senate campaign as a limited liability company in August.

Suber has a long history of making anti-Semitic and racist comments on The UNZ Review, a website that includes white nationalist and anti-Semitic content. During Kobach’s unsuccessful campaign for governor, Suber regularly heaped praise on the candidate and encouraged other readers of the site to back him.

“I am ready to sign up for the Kobach ethnostate defense force: Kansas, Kobach and Kids,” Suber wrote in June of 2018 in response to a post that referred to unaccompanied minors crossing the southern border as “child-invaders.”

1. Kobach is trying to weasel-word his way out of it

Saying that you can't vet all volunteers - which is true. Sometimes you have an event, and you have supporters just show up to help however they can, but this guy was on the payroll. And if Kobach believes he's able to tel who is a legal voter and isn't (though, apparently he can't considering his track record) then he really doesn't have a excuse for not vetting this idiot.
