Kirsters Baish| Our country has been having a serious problem with voter fraud. The left has been fighting with all they have in order to downplay the size of the problem, but they only do it because it’s furthering their own cause. They are the only ones benefitting from illegal voters.
Throughout the years it has been drilled into our heads that there is no real issue. The Left has tried to convince us that there is no real problem and that it is ridiculous to require photo IDs or any kind of strict oversight. The Left wants us all to think that the Republican Party is discriminatory against poor and minority voters which would apparently be affected by these policies.
Following President Trump’s victory, all of a sudden the Left claimed voter fraud was all over the place. However, the only way that President Trump won was because of American voters… not because of the Russians as Liberals decided to claim.
President Trump wasn’t just content with his victory, however. He decided to prove the Left wrong and opt to create a commission that would look into voter fraud in the U.S. during the 2016 presidential election.
In November, the commission solicited states to hand over publicly available data which included, but was not limited to, registered voters’ names, birth dates, as well as partial Social Security numbers.
A judge halted their plans, however. This forced the commission to stop until a lawsuit which was filed by the Electronic Privacy Information Center which is located in Washington was settled once and for all.
United States District Court Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly is now denying the request made by the advocacy group which would block the data collection in a ruling that commission vice chairman Kris Kobach called “a major victory for government accountability, transparency and the public’s right to know about the integrity of our elections processes.”
Kobach, the Republican Secretary of State in Kansas, also stated, “The commission requested this publicly available data as part of its fact-gathering process, which is information that states regularly release to political candidates, political parties and the general public. We look forward to continuing to work with state election leaders to gather information and identify opportunities to improve election integrity.”.
It was ruled by the judge that the collection commission is not an agency, so they are not subject to this kind of assessment. She also found that the group did not show that its members would be harmed by the collection of data.
