Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, the head of President Trump’s Commission on Election Integrity, is a paid columnist at Breitbart News, publishing seven columns on the right-wing site.
“I get paid for my columns … just like you’re paid,” Kobach told The Kansas City Star.
Most recently, Kobach wrote a column on why the program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals should be ended.
“DACA is inconsistent with the rule of law, inconsistent with the president’s own promises, and inconsistent with the president’s principled stand against illegal immigration. It must end,” Kobach wrote on the website.
The Hill added:
His four most recent pieces are labeled as exclusives.
Kobach’s other pieces highlight immigration, as well as his own Commission on Election Integrity.
The Star reports that Kobach, who has defended Breitbart, has other columns for the conservative publication lined up.
“I think Breitbart.com appeals to anyone who is Republican or conservative in any way,” Kobach said, according to the Star, adding “it appeals to a broad spectrum of conservative readers.”
Kobach is just one of many Trump administration officials with ties to Breitbart.
The president’s former chief strategist Stephen Bannon and former White House aide Sebastian Gorka have also worked for the site.
