Despite what Reuter’s “journalist” Lawrence Hurley will tell you, voter fraud was a problem during the 2016 US election. But it wasn’t committed by Donald Trump or his supporters.
And now it will be investigated, with permission granted to access (largely publicly available data) from all 50 states. You know what this mean, right? Voter ID laws are coming, and not a minute too soon.
WASHINGTON, July 24 (Reuters) – A U.S. judge on Monday rejected a bid to prevent President Donald Trump’s commission on alleged election fraud from requesting voter roll data from states. Washington-based U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly ruled in favor of the administration by refusing to block the commission from asking for the data.
The decision was a loss for the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC), a watchdog group, which filed a lawsuit challenging the commission’s actions.
Studies have shown voter fraud is rare in U.S. elections.Trump, who set up the commission by executive order on May 12, charged without evidence last year that millions voted unlawfully in the November presidential election.
