Also on the panel: our old friend Hans von Spakovsky, former Fairfax County, VA member of the Electoral Board, and former Bush administration official in charge of undermining voting rights in the Justice Department's Civil Rights division.
"It is my honest hope and prayer that this Commission will focus on the real election issues facing the United States of America, including alleged "hacking" by the Russians, instead of spending precious time focusing on non-issues to deprive American citizens from voting", King, a Democrat, stated in a recent 5-page report to the panel.
In his day job as Kansas' secretary of state, where he plays the "Javert of voter fraud", Kobach complains that the media's response to his efforts to safeguard America's elections is a dismissive, "Move along, there's nothing to see here".
Despite being corrected on his confused math by two other commissioners and one panelist, Kobach - who earned through his work as Kansas secretary of state the nickname from the ACLU, "King of Voter Suppression" - never admitted that his claim, published without a correction on Breitbart News, was wrong. He says the commission was created to substantiate the biggest lie ever told by a sitting president and should be dismantled. When the undercover reporters offered to produce ID to verify their identities, in nearly every case "we were quickly told it was unnecessary, and almost scolded for offering to show it". Opponents have characterized the proposals as acts of clandestine voter suppression. He brings a wealth of knowledge and insight to the discussion of voter fraud, and holds strong views on the topic. "Double voting is illegal, and 196 people are being investigated for casting ballots in New Hampshire and in other states".
"The moment we start playing around with voting and we let certain people dictate who gets to vote is the moment that this nation is in trouble and we are heading down that path right now", King said. "States, do with it what you want'".
King was at a technology conference for probate judges in Salt Lake City, Utah, on Tuesday. Jeanne Shaheen said in a statement to the commission. The amendment also would prevent funds from being spent on any other commissions established to study "voter fraud".
Lott seems to believe this would enable authorities to review criminal history and immigration status, if someone renounced American citizenship and just to "check if the right people are voting".
True, New Hampshire had some very close races. "States do not have money".
Some groups that saw an ideological motive in the Trump commission's work said they suspected it was trying to make voting more hard in many jurisdictions, and thus to discourage members of racial, ethnic or political minorities from casting their ballots - a process known as voter suppression. It saves time - eliminating long lines - and is more accurate, King said.
E-poll books do not track how, or for whom, voters cast ballots. "My point is that among the 5,313, you can probably assume that at least one of those individuals" voted fraudulently.
Because of the cost, however, it may take some time before smaller counties will get that technology, King said. On the one hand, it allows people to cast their votes at the last minute, without first needing to register.
Dunlap dismissed the idea, calling it a "sterling example of the laws of unintended consequences" that would widen the mission of the background check database, which he said was never meant to be used as an election tool. They suggest the commission is a front to pass new election laws to restrict voting.
Temple noted that the attorney general represented on the record, and Assistant Secretary of State David Scanlon represented in his affidavit, that the Secretary of State's Office will make good-faith efforts to ensure that voters are properly informed of SB3's requirements at Tuesday's election."This should include the fact that there are now no penalties, pursuant to this order, for failing to return any documents in connection with same-day voter registration". The League of Women Voters has serious questions about the legality of releasing this personal information.
