Re: Voter “fraud”
Should California acquiesce with the demand from the president’s commission on voter fraud and submit information on its voter rolls?
I believe not. In the first place, the commission is set up to “investigate” a non-existing problem. There is not the slightest evidence to support the president’s conviction of massive voter fraud, based solely on his pique at having lost the 2016 election by 3,000,000 votes. The vice chairman of the commission, Kris Kobach of Kansas, failed notably to demonstrate voter fraud in his home state despite a relentless and futile search, and will find none here. Still, he issues a highly questionable demand to states to release information on their voters. Thankfully, many states are refusing the request.
It is an irony, is it not, that Trump pursues this fantasy with a vengeance, even as he refuses to do anything about the proven attack on our election system by a hostile foreign power?
Please let me know your thoughts in this matter. Should our state acquiesce with this unreasonable and arbitrary demand?
