New Hampshire voter fraud fight takes new turn

Exclusive – Kobach: It Appears That Out-of-State Voters Changed the Outcome of the New Hampshire US Senate Race Illegal voters from Massachusetts may have won New Hampshire for Hillary

Kobach believes, as Trump does, that millions voters are casting ballots illegally and is on a rampage to crack down by cancelling voter registrations nationwide. The law has been challenged in New Hampshire courts, and the state's Legislature has been working for some time to address technical issues in the statute.

"The claim is that the commission will meet and then they will recommend things like photo ID or some other election security measure". Even if it does make recommendations, he said, the commission can't force states to adopt them.

In response to the findings, key Democrats - such as Democratic Party Chairman Raymond Buckley - discount and reject the new data, insisting that Jasper and the White House are using "selective data and misinformation" to fabricate voter fraud claims.

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, the head of Trump's voter suppression panel, is back with yet another lie about having proof of real and widespread voter fraud.

Mr. Kobach, who serves as co-chair of the commission as well as Kansas secretary of state and who is an aspiring candidate for governor, wrote a column in Breitbart News that he had "proof" of so much voter fraud in New Hampshire that it turned the outcome of the U.S. Senate race.

Unlike most other states, including liberal Vermont right next door, New Hampshire doesn't require voters to prove that they live in New Hampshire in order to vote there.

Kobach's allies in New Hampshire relayed information that some 5,300 people who voted in that election weren't residents of the state.

Under fire from Democrats nationally and in his state, New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner defended his involvement in President Donald Trump's voting commission Tuesday as the panel began a daylong meeting at St. Anselm College.

Since last week, Kobach apparently learned that authorities in New Hampshire, a state long known for political conservatism, had formally agreed that prospective voters could register as New Hampshire residents by presenting documents showing their prior residency in other states - driving licenses, in most cases - as long as they considered their domiciles to be in New Hampshire.

But as Ari Berman and Pema Levy point out in Mother Jones, "there's a far simpler and less nefarious explanation for what happened: It's legal to use an out-of-state driver's license as ID at the polls in New Hampshire".

Gardner says the group's ability to reach consensus is threatened by the partisan reaction it has evoked.

A vivid example of the right-wing hegemony in the Trump Administration will be on display today, when the Presidential Advisory Commission on Voter Integrity convenes for the second time.

The commission's views on elections are well-known; its members have already been discredited as political ideologues with unsafe agendas. MSNBC says the voter fraud problem "plainly doesn't exist", while the solidly-liberal Mother Jones concludes: "UFO Sightings Are More Common Than Voter Fraud".

Democratic California Secretary of State Alex Padilla says he's disappointed but not surprised that the panel won't hear any testimony from women or people of color.

Trump trounced Clinton in the all-important Electoral College vote, 306 to 232, to win the presidency.

Kobach called those claims about the commission "bizarre".

Under the circumstances, Kobach said Tuesday, he might have chosen the wrong word when he said it "appears" unauthorized votes turned the tide of the Senate election last November. It's nearly as if widespread voter fraud is a myth. Last month, Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer of NY compared the commission to the white supremacists who marched in Charlottesville, Virginia, and said he would try to eliminate the panel as part of a must-pass bill.

The Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity has spurred controversy since it was established in May. Indeed, the commission could use the data to create a national voter database for the first time in US history, and it could be used to unlawfully purge voters with identical names and birth dates.

Jasper found many statistics that simply do not stack up well for the integrity of New Hampshire's voting system.

Gardner pointed to the comments made by the panel's chair, Vice President Mike Pence, at the first meeting, who said the panel would not work with any preconceived notions.
