What is Terry McAuliffe hiding – and why?
Virginia’s Democrat governor says he won’t comply with a request from the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity to provide voter registration data for the state.
Hans von Spakovsky, who was just added to the commission, talks with WMAL’s Larry O’Connor about McAuliffe’s bizarre refusal to cooperate with the advisory panel’s efforts to “study the registration and voting processes used in Federal elections.”
Bizarre because federal law gives every member of the public, as well as the U.S. Attorney General, access to the voter registration records of the state.
Bizarre also, says von Spakovsky, because Virginia has an independent state election board that oversees voter registration. The governor doesn’t even have any say-so on whether to turn over the information.
So what is McAuliffe trying to hide?
Could it be the tens of thousands of voters found registered in both Virginia and another state? Or maybe the thousands of non-citizens found to have registered and voted in Virginia?
