Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach said Wednesday that he has no plans to recuse himself from a recount process in the race for governor because any counting of ballots would take place at the county level.

“The recount thing is done on a county level, so the secretary of state does not actually participate directly in the recount,” Kobach said at a campaign event in Topeka after initial results showed him winning by fewer than 200 votes.

“The secretary of state’s office merely serves as a coordinating entity overseeing it all but not actually counting the votes,” Kobach said, contending that his role puts him at arm’s length from the actual recount.

The article goes on to state the following:

No law requires Kobach to recuse himself, but legal and political experts said that he should do so to maintain trust in the election.

    Watch the recount closely to make sure no fraud – wouldn’t want someone to try swaying the final count.

    Dems will fight tooth and nail for Secretary of State win. This is the department that oversees state elections. Watch carefully. They’ll try everything to pull ahead in the recount.
