Kiko is currently vice chairman the Smith-Free Group, a Washington firm which bills itself as bi-partisan. His lobbying disclosure form tells an interesting story: He is working for the American Civil Liberties Union on the Voting Rights Act.

The ACLU characterized the June 2013 Supreme Court decision striking down Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act as a “huge blow to democracy.” The ACLU says that it is “working with Congress to devise a new formula” for Section 5 pre-clearance.

Worse, Kiko’s lobbying activities are not limited to representing the ACLU. He also lobbies on behalf of the far-left Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights.

The LCCHR is a collection of mostly far-left radical groups including the ACLU, People for the American Way, the SEIU and other Big Labor organizations, and the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Phillip Kiko, a self-described conservative, is working on behalf of these groups as their lobbyist at the same time his former boss, Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, works toward a “fix” for the Voting Rights Act.
