Voter panel vice chairman clarifies fraud claims

Voter panel vice chairman clarifies fraud claims

The president's claims, and his appointed commission, have been widely and repeatedly criticized by many political analysts and experts in the United States - not all of them Democrats.

Examples of potential voter fraud could give Kobach a leg-up in a legal fight over Kansas voting laws.

The event will feature three panel discussions and a demonstration of "Historic New Hampshire Voting Machines Still in Use Since 1892".

FESSLER: But just last week, the commission's vice chair, another Republican, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, seemed to contradict him.

"The data is not standardized between states, the data quality is poor in some states and there's a lack of transparency", Block said.

Ultimately, Trump chose to name two Democratic secretaries of State to his "Bipartisan Presidential Commission on Election Integrity", along with an Obama-appointed commissioner of the Election Assistance Commission.

In the September 7 article, Kobach said out-of-state voters "likely" changed - through voter fraud - the outcome of New Hampshire's 2016 U.S. Senate race, in which Democrat Maggie Hassan unseated incumbent Republican Kelly Ayotte by fewer than 800 votes. "I think it's a reckless statement to make", Dunlap said. "It turns out that, as of August 30, 2017 - almost ten months after the election - only 1,014 of the 6,540 same-day registrants who registered with an out-of-state license had obtained a New Hampshire driver's license".

"Today's meeting makes it clear that the real goal of President Trump's sham voter commission is to the lay the foundation for voter suppression efforts", said Sewell stated in a press release Tuesday afternoon. Data provided by the state show that 6,540 people registered to vote there on Election Day 2016 by showing an out-of-state ID. Kobach refused to back away from that claim on Tuesday, saying that "we will never know the legitimacy of the election" in New Hampshire. Various constitutional provisions certainly implya right to vote-but the Supreme Court has interpreted these stingily. The Pence-Kobach commission has other designs, and I urge Granite Staters, and people throughout the nation, to be vigilant.

Dunlap said New Hampshire's law is not as strict as Maine's.

Keys favored over Vandeweghe tonight at the US Open
When asked about facing Sloane Stephens in the semifinals, Williams asked reporters: "I don't think I have ever played her". Sharapova played well and had some exciting matches, but Williams, Stephens, Vandeweghe and Keys have all stolen the show.


Vols trail Georgia Tech at halftime
Coach Butch Jones said he would discuss Jennings's status later in the week, but Jennings reportedly is having surgery Tuesday. After a shaky first half in his first career start, Dormady was able to settle in and make big throws when needed.


Hamilton says he will extend Mercedes deal this year
Hamilton led Bottas by almost half a second in the morning. "Monza is never a critical race for us", said Vettel. Verstappen, Vettel, Bottas and then Hamilton took top spot as the times tumbled.


"The idea that there is widespread voter fraud in New Hampshire, in this country, is a partisan idea that has been placed out there in an effort to depress voting in certain areas and to get people to second-guess the elections", Shaheen said.

14 states, including Vermont, have refused to turn over this information to the panel.

Reached for comment, a spokesman for the Heritage Foundation said he would get TPM "a name" for the email sender but did not respond to further requests for comment. Clinton won by 2,736 votes, or 0.3 of a percentage point.

A Democratic member of President Donald Trump's commission to investigate possible voter fraud defended his participation on the panel on Tuesday while warning that its mission is being threatened by "extreme partisanship".

The signs are a riff on New Hampshire's "Live Free or Die" motto, and protesters from the New Hampshire Campaign for Voting Rights say the commission is a sham created to promote voter suppression.

Donald Trump and Kris Kobach, Kansas secretary of state following their meeting with then president-elect at Trump International Golf Club, November 20, 2016 in Bedminster Township, New Jersey. "It's by way of the facts", said Gardner, also a Democrat.

"The other way to look at that is that he told a really big lie, the biggest lie", Kander noted.

"A state with voter suppression ought not to be honored by the Democratic Party by having the first-in-the-nation primary, period", Dean said in an interview with The Daily Beast.

This past Friday, all four members of New Hampshire's congressional delegation called on Gardner to step down from the panel. No state is sending all of the information sought, and 14 states have denied the commission's request.
