44 states won’t give Trump voter fraud panel info

0

Forty-four out of 50 states will not fulfill the Trump administration’s request for specific details about their voters, according to CNN.

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach (R), who is vice chairman of President Trump’s voter fraud commission, sent a letter to every state last week requesting certain voter data.

CNN reported that as of Tuesday afternoon, Hawaii and New Jersey had not responded to its inquiry into the matter.

Florida and Nebraska are reportedly analyzing the panel’s request, while six states are still waiting for a letter from the commission.

Four of those states – Michigan, New Mexico, South Carolina and West Virginia – have already refused to comply with the administration’s request, according to CNN.

Some Twitter users on Tuesday voiced support for Trump’s panel, which he created by executive order in May.

Other people on the social media platform, however, cast doubt on the notion of significant voter fraud in the U.S.

Kobach’s letter purportedly requests “public” info on voters including addresses, full names, dates of birth, political parties, the last four digits of their Social Security numbers and more.

Multiple secretaries of state across America have refused to cooperate, however, citing issues ranging from privacy concerns to the prevalence of voter fraud.

Trump claimed earlier this year that millions of people voted illegally in the 2016 presidential election.

The president’s panel is chaired by Vice President Mike Pence, and critics its work is aimed at proving Trump’s assertions.
