The Kansas politico was recently forced to make excuses for a controversial group that has suffered more than its share of money problems.
Despite earning MILLIONS in donations . . . Here's the money line from Kansas Attorney General candidate Kris Kobach . . .
“The essence of it is that We Build The Wall has very limited funds right now to bring the ledger up to balance or close to balance,” Kris Kobach, Kansas’ former secretary of state, general counsel for the organization, told U.S. District Judge Randy Crane during a video status conference hearing Thursday morning in the U.S. District Court Southern District of Texas Court in McAllen. The hearing was held via Zoom online due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The controversial organization, which is the subject of other lawsuits, had asked Crane for 90 days to find a new lawyer.
“It might be expensive and few of us have the assets right now to cover a retainer. So we are willing to let counsel step aside but we would like a fairly generous bit of time to find local counsel and also perhaps have a picture of what it involves,” Kobach said.
But during the quick, 6-minute hearing, Crane retorted: “This case just keeps getting delayed and delayed; 90 days seems like a long time.”
“Finding a lawyer I don’t think is a big problem. I think finding a lawyer who is willing to risk not getting paid is probably the issue here,” Crane said.
