Kansas secretary of state pursuing more criminal cases against voters, including one in Johnson County

January 26, 2016

TOPEKA — Secretary of State Kris Kobach's office is pursuing three new criminal cases against people it alleges voted illegally in Kansas and other states.

Kobach told a Kansas House committee Monday of the new cases. His office has filed a total of six cases since legislators enacted a law last year to give it prosecutorial power.

One new case is in Johnson County against Michael L. Hannum. He lives in Omaha, Nebraska, and said prosecutors' offices in both places told him they weren't going to file cases.

Another case is in Ellis County. Defendant Randall K. Kilian lives in Castle Rock, Colorado, and said he knew nothing about it.

A third new case is in Sedgwick County case against Ron R. Weems. He didn't return a telephone message seeking comment.
