TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Secretary of State Kris Kobach’s challenger in the Kansas Republican primary is demanding that Kobach fully disclose his earnings from outside work by releasing his income tax records for the past three years.

GOP candidate Scott Morgan said Tuesday that voters deserve to know the extent of Kobach’s private financial dealings with other parties.

Kobach and his campaign spokeswoman did not immediately return telephone messages seeking comment.

Kobach is a former law professor who became nationally known for advising officials in other states on cracking down on illegal immigration.

Financial disclosures Kobach filed with the state show he’s had five private clients since taking office in 2011 and that he maintains an outside law firm.

But Morgan notes that the information in the state forms is limited.
