Trump slams states for pushing back on panel's voter data demand

Trump slams states for pushing back on panel's voter data demand

Louisiana will not comply with a request from President Donald Trump's Commission on Election Integrity to hand over data on Louisiana voters. This data included the submission of names, addresses, birthdates, partial social security numbers, party affiliations, voting patterns, records of felony convictions, military service and more.

So far, 29 states have refused to comply with the commission's request for voter data.

According to Schedler's statement, the Obama Justice Department requested voter information because it believed Louisiana was not registering recipients of state benefits with "sufficient vigor". For example, no date of birth, no social security number.

The most notable response against the Trump election fraud probe came from Mississippi Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann, a Republican, who told the commission, "They can go jump in the Gulf of Mexico".

Richard Hasen, a law professor and election expert at the University of California, Irvine, said Blackwell was widely criticized in 2004 for rejecting votes cast on paper that he determined was not the proper weight.

The ACLU's Voting Rights Project sued him four times and Kris, using our tax dollars, lost all four cases, whereas we are to turn a blind eye when he uses the state plane for GOP speaking engagements and out-of-state "voter ID" testimony. "What are they trying to hide?"

Kobach faces complaint stemming from Trump's election commission

The Maricopa County Recorder says county voters' information will not be released to a new federal commission.

Kobach has not returned numerous requests for comment about the election integrity commission.

The White House said Monday that all 50 states were contacted by the commission.

More than 20 states, including Kentucky, California and NY, have declined to provide some or all of the information, saying it was unnecessary and violated privacy. "For Republican election administrators, this is a federalism issue". Louisiana Secretary of State Tom Schedler's office said staff and attorneys were reviewing the request. Repeating incessantly a false story of expansive voter fraud, and then creating a commission to fuel that narrative, does not make it any more true.
