A Topeka activist has launched an effort to recall Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, partly over his work on immigration issues in other states.

But the effort started Wednesday by Sonny Scroggins faces big hurdles under state law.

Scroggins submitted a $100 application fee and a copy of his proposed recall petition to the lieutenant governor's office. Among other things, he accuses Kobach of neglecting his duties.

Kobach didn't immediately return telephone messages, but he's said the same issues were aired during his 2010 campaign.

Scroggins' application won't be considered valid unless supporters gather signatures from nearly 83,000 registered voters.

Even after that, the law would require them to collect the signatures of nearly 332,000 voters within three months for an election to be held.
