Election commission official: 'High possibility' no changes will be recommended

Election commission official: 'High possibility' no changes will be recommended”

President Donald Trump speaks alongside Kris Kobach during the first meeting of the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity in Washington on July 19.

Anyone who registered to vote on Election Day with another state's drivers' license and didn't get a New Hampshire license within 60 days was an illegitimate voter and, according to Kobach's apparently psychic powers, most likely a Democrat!

"Some of the removals of barriers to voting are not panaceas", said Andrew Smith, a political scientist at the University of New Hampshire.

"If you're here today, you can vote and be gone", one poll official told Veritas. Mr. Kobach's claim led the state's all-Democratic congressional delegation to demand that Mr. Gardner resign, arguing that Mr. Kobach's unfounded accusations unmasked the sham nature of the commission. They are sharing those stories with President Trump's voter integrity commission as it wades into one of the administration's thorniest fights. "We're heading down that path to disenfranchise segments of our society and say to them you're not good enough to vote".

"Voter fraud in New Hampshire has gotten to the point of Lucille Ball in the chocolate factory". An individual who was a driver in another state, but moves to New Hampshire and is not a driver in New Hampshire, does not need to get a driver's license.

Thousands evacuated as wave of bomb threats hits Russian cities
Cops in Moscow reportedly received an anonymous call about an explosion in Red Square, according to news agency Interfax. All alerts have proved to be hoaxes and the authorities have urged the public to stay calm, the BBC said yesterday.

Last year, Dunlap took on Republican Gov. Paul LePage for reiterating claims in anonymously distributed fliers and emails that warned college students to register their cars or obtain Maine IDs if they voted last year. In part this was about serving more red meat to a base that is as bigoted and narcissistic as Trump is and also because we would end up with single party rule by Republicans if voting was restricted to men who believe they are entitled to all the benefits that come with white, male privilege.

"I am deeply concerned that falsehoods about illegal voting are being spread as a pretext for restricting access to the ballot box", Shaheen said.

Critics have pointed out that most of those voters were students attending college in New Hampshire who are legally allowed to vote in the state while living there - even if they haven't updated their driver's licenses. 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".

The Election Integrity Commission "should be expanding the rights of our citizens to vote, instead of arguably looking for ways to keep people from voting", Alan L. King, an Alabama probate judge, wrote in a scathing open letter. President Trump also tweeted about the "serious voter fraud" that had occurred in New Hampshire.

Kobach called those claims about the commission "bizarre".

"The fact is that New Hampshire law clearly states that citizens who live in New Hampshire can vote without a New Hampshire ID". The claim was so swiftly and easily dispatched at a fact-finding hearing in Manchester on Tuesday that it dramatically illustrated the foundation of the entire enterprise - a search to justify voter suppression laws on any and all grounds possible no matter the lack of evidence of actual voter fraud.

Despite all of this, The Washington Post's Monkey Cage blog found no unusual turnout surges in 2016 that might be explained by buses from MA, and Former New Hampshire GOP chair Fergus Cullen dismissed the claim, calling it as old as buses themselves in an interview with USA Today.

"I think this commission, what it's trying to do, flies in the face of what this country is all about", said Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer, New York Democrat.

Testimony ranged from studies of voter behavior to the vulnerability of the election infrastructure system. John Lott, president of the Crime Prevention Research Center, said the National Instant Criminal Background Check System could be used to identify those who are ineligible to vote, such as felons and noncitizens.

DUNLAP: It oversimplifies the model to say that there's a direct path to fraud through the driver's license.
