Kansas convicts man for voting when not a citizen of US

Washington Examiner:
Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach on Wednesday confirmed his office secured its first conviction of a noncitizen who illegally voted in an election.

Victor David Garcia Bebek, a Peruvian national who only became a U.S. citizen in 2017, pleaded guilty to voter fraud for casting ballots in the 2012 special election, as well as the 2012 and 2014 general elections.

Following his naturalization ceremony this year, Bebek was offered the chance to register to vote.

"This gentleman did so, and then when the Sedgwick County election office went back to the office to enter his information, they found that he had been on the voter rolls since 2011," Kobach, a Republican, told the Kansas City Star.
...
Trump should put Kobach in charge of his study of illegal voting in the US.  I think he should also work with True the Vote, a Texas-based group that monitors potential illegal voting.
