New Hampshire voter fraud fight takes new turn

Posted September 14, 2017

The revelations stunned members of the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, which was in New Hampshire on Tuesday for its second meeting.

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.

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

One man's mother, who was in a "memory care" ward of a nursing home and deemed too incapacitated to vote, somehow still managed to have a ballot cast in her name in Florida. Kobach serves as vice chairman of the 12-member commission.

This sentiment that facts were manipulated to keep Democrats from voting - and to make progressives look bad - was also reciprocated by State Senate Democratic Leader Jeff Woodburn.

After the article, many people called on New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner, who is a member of the commission, to step down.

Trump established the commission in May after charging, without evidence, that millions voted unlawfully in the November presidential election.

"That's what the Russian government did before the 2016 election. This includes long-time New Hampshire residents who don't drive and don't have a driver's license; it includes thousands of students from other states who live in New Hampshire while attending school; and it includes military personnel from other states who live in New Hampshire while on active duty", Shaheen wrote.

Soon after his victory, then-President-elect Trump claimed "in addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally". 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. As we've documented in detail, it is constitutionally required that students be allowed to vote where they go to school.

- Enact federal regulations that make it a felony for a voter to be registered to vote in more than one county or parish, regardless of whether they vote in more than one location on election day or not. Using such licenses for voter registration is legal in the state, but it was pointed out that only a thousand and fourteen of these people later obtained a New Hampshire license.

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

The reason why CNN may have zeroed in on "white men" in reporting on a voter fraud hearing is that many on the Left allege, as Perez does, that investigating voter fraud is done cynically with the goal of making it more hard for traditional Democratic voter demographics - such as African-Americans and young people - to vote.

President Trump's controversial voter fraud commission made a stop in New Hampshire today.

Voting experts say there is no evidence of voter fraud. Studies have repeatedly concluded that fraudulent voting is rare in American elections, and that voter impersonation, a chief target of anti-fraud advocates, is all but nonexistent.

But he took the opportunity to publicly criticize Kobach for spreading misinformation and casting doubt on the New Hampshire results.

Commission Vice Chairman Kris Kobach, Kansas secretary of state, wrote a column for Breitbart suggesting those were illegal out-of-state voters.

It's a question that comes up routinely in election years, Smith said. But in recent years, the court has assumed that tough registration requirements, early voting cuts, and voter ID rules are passed with no intent to disenfranchise citizens.

Dunlap believes the panel's request for data is counter to state law. But that does not mean they are not eligible to vote in New Hampshire.
