Trump scraps controversial voter fraud commission

12 January 2018

"Donald Trump's so-called election integrity commission was a scam and a fraud from beginning to end", said Marge Baker, executive vice president of the progressive People for the American Way.

Commission Vice Chair Kris Kobach, the Kansas Secretary of State and voter ID proponent, wrote the requests to states seeking the information.

Among those who opposed the president's voter fraud commission was Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, who said "I have no intention of honoring this request". The president called for voter identification laws to be implemented.

"They can go jump in the Gulf of Mexico and Mississippi is a great state to launch from", Mississippi Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann said in a June statement. In other words, it was created to prove beyond a doubt that the only reason Trump had failed to win the popular vote was due to millions of instances of voter fraud-an entirely baseless claim often repeated by the president and his allies. Crosscheck uses public voter data to prevent voter fraud by, for example, identifying voters who registered in more than one state.

While dissolving the commission, the administration did not concede the rarity of voter fraud in modern American elections.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday disbanded an investigation into alleged voter fraud in the 2016 election, but refused to back down on unsubstantiated allegations of massive wrongdoing at the ballot box.

When Trump tweeted Thursday morning about the need to push hard for voter identification, Grimes responded by calling Trump "either delusional or intentionally lying about voter fraud". He explained the move by saying that "many states" were not complying with the commission's requests for "basic information relevant to its inquiry".

Although the commission has previously requested states to hand over information on its voters, several like California and NY refused to comply.

Without proof, the President claimed millions of undocumented immigrants voted in the 2016 election and his commission would get to the bottom of the issue.


The commission had asked every state to turn over information, including voter's addresses, partial Social Security numbers, political affiliation and voting history. Senator Chuck Schumer, senate minority leader, said the commission never had anything to do with election integrity.

"The commission was getting bogged down by more than a dozen lawsuits filed by democrats and left leaning organization against the commission and that was slowing its work", said Kobach.
