Jean Schodorf Wages War on Women in Kansas

Leave it to Jean Schodorf, a wealthy, liberal Democrat fighting to unseat Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach to try and play the female discrimination card.

Women 4 Kansas is another far left, liberal political organization dressed up as an advocacy group that doesn't feel the need to comply with campaign finance law, despite being created in April of 2013 with the express purpose of electing a new governor and secretary of state, the organization has not filed one single campaign finance report.

So, it should come as no surprise that Jean Schodorf chose one a Women 4 Kansas campaign event it to falsely accuse Kris Kobach of misogyny in order to bolster her street credit with man hating liberal voters.
"Let me read you a quote that has stuck with me, and I quote, 'I can’t imagine how many widows are voting for their dead husbands in communities like I lived in. Yes, it happens all the time.
These words were not spoken by some misogynist from one hundred years ago.  They were spoken in April of this year by Kris Kobach, the current secretary of state when asked about the most common form of voter fraud.  'Yeah,' Kris Kobach says, 'women voting for their dead husbands happens all the time.
There is a war on women being waged in Kansas today," said Jean Schodorf.
There is no other way to describe these comments as anything but a bold faced lie and you can view her making them here.  Schodorf should be ashamed of herself.  She is a disgrace to women who have truly suffered from gender discrimination.

Not only is the conversation, Schodorf referring to not being portrayed accurately, as you can hear for yourself below.  But, Kris Kobach wasn't even the one who made the comment about widows' husbands voting.

In April of this year Kris Kobach appeared as a guest on the Joyce Kaufman radio show, which broadcasts from Florida where she lives.  The host of the show was the one who made the rhetorical remarks about widows' voting on behalf of their deceased spouses after relaying a story from her own life about continually receiving absentee ballots for her deceased mother.
"My Mother passed away in 2010 and in the end I was carrying for her and we were living together.  I still get absentee ballots.  So one day I contacted the secretary.. supervisor of elections for Broward County on my show and I explained the dilema to her about how I was still getting these ballots. And now on the air she said, 'I will take care of that,' and now my most recent certification for my mother to vote came last month.  I mean I can't even get it stripped off.  I can't imagine how many widows are voting for there dead husbands in communities like I lived in," said Joyce Kaufman.
You can here those comments at about the 4:25 mark in this audio clip:

Secretary Kobach then responds to Kaufman's anecdote by confirming that ballots being cast by deceased voters are the most common form of voter fraud.  He followed up by saying that voting in two states using absentee ballots is the second and votes cast by illegal aliens being the third.

And you know what?  He's right.

A 2010 study conducted by the Kansas Watchdog found that not only were deceased voters being left on the roles, but, and you guessed it, they had been casting votes long after their death.
"From the 1,966 potential dead registered voters a check was made between the death date and the date the last ballot was cast.  This resulted in 75 potential “dead voters.”"
If even just one of those 75 potentially dead voters was in deed voter fraud it is a problem.  In this country every citizen's vote matters, and in many cases that mantra has been proven true, like in a somewhat recent Missouri Democrat primary race in which Rizzo lost by one vote.  If even one fraudulent ballot is allowed to be cast it negates the legitimate vote cast by honest citizens and disenfranchises the rest of the legal voters in the state.

Not only is Schodorf disgusting for lying to women and trying to play gender warfare with them (I can only assume she is doing so because she believes they are too stupid or lazy to check into her lies and she knows the media certainly won't) but she is doubly wrong for Kansas as the entire platform she is running on is about making it easier for Democrats to cheat and steal elections.

Jean Schodorf is just plain wrong Kansas or any other state for that matter.
