Trump’s unlawful request

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 13 luglio 2017

tammyPresident Trump created a Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity. It’s first order of business was demanding that states hand over voter data — including names, birth dates, political affiliations, voting histories, felony convictions, military records, and the last four digits of voters’ Social Security numbers.This request goes against federal and Illinois state laws. Federal law protects state governments from having to comply with unnecessary, burdensome information requests, and the Illinois Election Code protects the confidentiality of voter registration data.
I’m proud to say that Illinois State Board of Elections just joined an overwhelming majority of states in refusing to comply with President Trump’s request.We all know President Trump’s true goal is to find a way to put more voter suppression laws on the books. Demand he abolish this committee.If you remember, after President Trump lost the popular vote by three million votes, he started making unsubstantiated claims that millions of voters had voted illegally in the 2016 election — even though state and federal election officials have no evidence voter fraud exists.That’s why this committee is a sham. If President Trump was seriously interested in voting integrity, he would investigate our nation’s vulnerability to foreign interference in our elections and the effect of state’s strict voter ID laws on enfranchisement.But rather than safeguard our election infrastructure or protect Americans’ right to vote, President Trump is trying to take steps to suppress it.
