Left losing its collective mind over Election Integrity Commission

All the usual left-wing voter fraud deniers are losing their minds at the thought of President Trump’s Advisory Commission on Election Integrity promoting clean voter rolls. The horror!

Multiple members of the commission have hands-on experience in maintaining accurate voter rolls, or holding election officials accountable for doing so as required by federal law.

 

Leftist groups like the ACLU, Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights, Brennan Center, and the rest of the anti-election integrity collective including left-wing media outlets refer ominously to the process of cleaning voter rolls as “purging” — as if that means anything other than removing people from the rolls who aren’t eligible to be there.

 

What happened to the transparency crowd? Why do they not want anyone to even look at the data?

Presidential Commission Set to Study Election Integrity

As promised, President Trump this week established a Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, to be headed by Vice President Pence and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, a long-time election integrity advocate.

 

Trump’s Executive Order sets out the advisory panel’s mission to “study the registration and voting processes used in Federal elections,” including

(a)  those laws, rules, policies, activities, strategies, and practices that enhance the American people’s confidence in the integrity of the voting processes used in Federal elections;

 

(b)  those laws, rules, policies, activities, strategies, and practices that undermine the American people’s confidence in the integrity of the voting processes used in Federal elections; and

 

(c)  those vulnerabilities in voting systems and practices used for Federal elections that could lead to improper voter registrations and improper voting, including fraudulent voter registrations and fraudulent voting.

Members of the bipartisan Commission announced so far include EAC Commissioner Christy McCormick, former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell, Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson, New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner, and Maine Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap.
