White House Publishes Personal Voter Info as Public Campaigns to Prevent It

White House Publishes Personal Voter Info as Public Campaigns to Prevent It

The Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity's request for extensive information about voters ignited a bipartisan firestorm from officials who oversee elections. The commission drew widespread criticism when it emerged into public view by asking for personal information, including addresses, partial social security numbers, and party affiliation, on every voter in the country. Some include personal addresses, small business contact data, or phone numbers. The emails were sent to the address that the administration asked Secretaries of State to send data files to. Let's be clear. Anyone has the right to request publicly available information from my office, and I will meet any good faith and lawful request.

The Trump White House on Thursday made public a trove of emails it received from voters offering comment on its Election Integrity Commission.

"This request is very concerning", wrote one. Why the commission posted this data remains unknown, as it did so without comment.

"You're a disgusting fraud with no moral bearing whatsoever", one commenter told Kobach.




This appears to be a completely unredacted dump of every message - positive or negative, with no editing - sent to the email address the commission requested that secretaries of state use, which also seems to serve as its email address for public comment.

Others pointed to alleged voter fraud taking place by Republicans, and many accused the president of focusing on voter fraud because of personal slight that Trump did not win the popular vote. And yet, lacking a complete understanding of the depth and breadth of Russian interference in the 2016 election and its implications for future elections, the commission has ignored this issue of fundamental importance to our Democracy and instead is focusing its efforts on creating a national voter registry. Why?

"You will open up the entire voting population to a massive amount of fraud if this data is in any way released", a participant wrote, while another stated: "Many people will get their identity stolen, which will harm the economy".
