From USA TODAY -
A GOP-controlled board in Kansas is trying to decide whether to remove President Obama from the state ballot over objections about his birth certificate.
The State Objections Board — consisting of three of the state’s top Republican elected officials — ruled Thursday it did not yet have enough information and postponed a decision until Monday.
“I don’t think it’s a frivolous objection,” Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach told the Topeka Capital-Journal.
Sounds like Kobach is leading the charge, right? “Anti-birthers” would glean from this article that Koback is “a nut.” And “birthers“ would think Kobach is an ally.
Late Thursday, Kobach told TPM in an email conversation that he made his “frivolous objection” comment at the end of the meeting and was responding to a specific question.
“A ‘frivolous’ argument, in legal terms, is one that cannot reasonably be made under any circumstances,” Kobach wrote. “The objection passed that very low threshold, which is not saying much.”
And there you have it, folks. This is how you make the news, not report the news.
