Kobach faces pushback on New Hampshire voter fraud comments

Exclusive – Kobach: It Appears That Out-of-State Voters Changed the Outcome of the New Hampshire US Senate Race

This was days after vice-chairman Kris Kobach accused New Hampshire voters of voter fraud in an article for the "alt-right" fake news outlet, Breitbart. He said the commission hopes to use it to investigate possible cases of people voting in multiple states but said that will depend on how much information it receives.

There have been isolated cases of voter fraud in the U.S. But there's no evidence of it being a widespread problem, as Trump suggests.

[Redacted] got a very disturbing phone call about the voter fraud commission that Vice President Pence is heading.

Kobach's request in July for sensitive voter roll data - including the names, addresses, dates of birth, political party affiliation, past voter history and even partial Social Security numbers of registered voters - is a risky violation of privacy.

Chris Moore wrote of his mother, Maxine E. Moore, who at age 96 was in the "memory care" unit of an assisted living facility in Broward County, Florida. Hassan's margin was slimmer - 1,017 votes out of almost three-quarters of a million cast. "That broken system is propped up by an honor code proven repeatedly to fail", Adams said in a statement. Christian Adams, president of the Public Interest Legal Foundation and one of the members of the voter commission.

Since the mid-20th century, Congress and the Supreme Court have removed most barriers that had sought to restrict voting, such as racial discrimination or literacy tests. Some 10 percent of those ended up casting ballots, the study found.

Popper, the director of Judicial Watch's Election Integrity Project, has threatened to sue states and counties unless they purged their voter rolls of supposedly ineligible voters.

- Enact a law that makes it a felony to hack to a person or organization to "hack" any voting machine, system or e-poll book or other voting apparatus. It could be taking a hard look at how to encourage states to explore virtually hack-proof vote-by-mail systems like the one OR uses. It's legal in New Hampshire for people to register to vote on Election Day.

Samsung's investment in TTTech is the first investment from its $ 300 million fund to strengthen its technology pool for autonomous driving, such as artificial intelligence and security.

The incident illustrated one of the main problems the panel faces as it goes forward with its stated mission of finding ways to instill more public confidence in USA elections: The voting process is complicated and data are hard to come by, a point several witnesses emphasized on Tuesday. That means they now live in the state and intent to stay for a definite period of time. "This Commission, and we as a people, should be expanding the rights of our citizens to vote, instead of arguably looking for ways to keep people from voting", he stated in his report.

"I disagree at my core with voter suppression, that includes gerrymandering".

"Facts have come to light that indicate that a pivotal, close election was likely changed through voter fraud on November 8, 2016: New Hampshire's U.S. Senate Seat, and perhaps also New Hampshire's four electoral college votes in the presidential election". The first time the Internet is used is when they're actually turning in the count on the various races on election night.

FESSLER: Still, a federal judge has admonished the panel for not being more open. Congress should conduct vigorous oversight of the commission's efforts, which are an affront to our democracy.

"If they are picking mainstream Republican officials and/or academics to man this commission it will be an abject failure because there aren't any that know anything about this or who have paid any attention to this issue over the years", the email says.

The first chance, a spending and debt bill, cleared Congress last week without Mr. Schumer forcing the commission issue. Such misleading allegations typify the voter-fraud campaign, because it's really a cure for which there is no disease. But New Hampshire's law is somewhat complicated because the Granite State makes a distinction between being a "resident" of the state and being "domiciled" in the state.

Meanwhile, public comments continue to pour in, with opponents of the commission dominating.

Also in the mix are forceful objections such as the one from Robb Paulak, who identified himself as a veteran, teacher and USA citizen, and told commissioners they were on a "witch hunt".
