Condos Says Presidential Election Integrity Commission Has 'Nefarious' Agenda

The implication there, of course, is that these voters somehow traveled to the state for the sole goal of voting in the election and thereby tipped the tight election to Hassan. Guess what else? Election day is in November, when they would be at school. The Left is desperate to create optimal conditions for vote fraud.

In his Breitbart article, Kobach claimed that because people had out of state drivers' licenses that was proof of mass voter fraud in New Hampshire.

Many people, for various reasons, choose not to go to the DMV to get a new license upon moving to a new state, most commonly, college students from out-of-state who live on campus and don't drive.

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

The testimony marked a departure for the commission, which was formed to look into fraud and barriers to voting, but which heard that a potentially greater threat to confidence in American elections is the chance for enemy actors to meddle. The chairman of the New Hampshire Republican Party, Fergus Cullen, who went so far as to offer a $1000 reward to anyone who could prove that even one single person had come from MA to vote illegally in that state.

Asked after the meeting whether Democrats' comments were an indication of growing uneasiness about the commission's direction, Mr. Dunlap replied: "It may be an indication that we're not going to take things sitting down".

Questions by the commission members for the expert panelists presenting at the event centered on factors that encourage or discourage voting and the best methods for determining voter eligibility. The commission met in New Hampshire on Tuesday. "We're heading down that path to disenfranchise segments of our society and say to them you're not good enough to vote".

"But more than 80 percent of voters who registered on November 8 using out-of-state driver's licenses - or 5,313 of them - neither had a state license, nor registered a motor vehicle nearly 10 months later", the Times' Rowan Scarborough noted.

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

The existence of Donald Trump's "Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity" has always been a running joke. Tuesday's meeting, coupled with Temple's ruling, demonstrates that, in the Trump era, this judicial presumption of good faith toward Republican-backed restrictions on the right to vote should be obsolete.

Kris Kobach, a Republican who is the secretary of state in the Midwestern state of Kansas, discussed the commission's work after meetings in Manchester, New Hampshire.

Although Trump handily won the Electoral College vote that ultimately decides the outcome of presidential elections, he lost the popular vote to Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton by almost 3 million votes. Mr. Trump himself lost New Hampshire by under 3,000 votes. "So what do we have to fear from looking at that and find out why people feel this way?"

"This commission is nothing more than an excuse to suppress the vote and discourage participation in our democratic process", said DNC spokeswoman Sabrina Singh. However, as the Huffington Post explains, under New Hampshire election law, one has to be domiciled in New Hampshire to register to vote. He regularly cites a 2010 Missouri State House election as proof that voting by noncitizens is rampant in elections, claiming that it wasdecided by votes "cast illegally by citizens of Somalia".

Kobach, however, considered the meeting a success, saying the commission would continue to gather "as much data as we can" on the election system. Not one proven case exists of nonresidents voting in that election.

That suggestion generated some tough questioning from commission members, including Maine Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap.
