Trump Commission Meeting to Restrict YOUR Voting Rights — HAPPENING NOW

Maine Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap (D) emerged as the panel's most aggressive Democrat on Tuesday, tangling with a witness and using part of his time to passively push back against Kobach's claims about New Hampshire's 2016 elections. Instead, he found himself getting dunked on - by both the members of the voter fraud commission he's leading, and the witnesses who testified at its meeting - who bashed him for screwing up basic facts of New Hampshire's elections law and accused him of jumping to conclusions.

Gardner went on to say that he could understand Kobach's concern, given the confusion that exists between "residency" and "domicile" when it comes to eligibility in New Hampshire, which the state Legislature is attempting to address through SB 3, the new election law being challenged in court.

But Gardner pointed out that New Hampshire law allows another category - those domiciled in the state - to legally vote.

The incident illustrated one of the main problems the panel faces as it goes forward with its stated mission of finding ways to instill more public confidence in USA elections: The voting process is complicated and data is hard to come by, a point several witnesses emphasized on Tuesday.

Dunlap continued to fact-check Kobach, saying that accusing someone with an out-of-state ID of committing voter fraud is like accusing someone who has cash of robbing a bank. Kelly Ayotte lost New Hampshire by razor-thin margins last fall.

"I think that's a reckless statement to make", he said. In the run-up to the meeting, Kobach wrote an article for the discredited Breitbart website that recycled President Trump's bogus claim about thousands of illegal votes being cast a year ago in New Hampshire. Bob Dole's 1996 presidential campaign, and he knew students who would have been willing to drive to New Hampshire and vote, if the law had been in place at that time. But even before that, Kobach's claims had been undercut by the testimony of a witness during the first panel who explained New Hampshire's requirements to vote.

Republicans - particularly Kobach - have meanwhile argued that state voting rolls that haven't been scrubbed for former voters who have moved or died have created a system ripe for exploitation.

White House Policy Adviser Stephen Miller and other Republicans have contended since Election Day that a considerable number of nonresident Democrats - primarily from MA - traveled to New Hampshire in order to vote illegally and tip the scale to give Clinton the win over Trump.

The NICS system, which Democrats support as a way of verifying someone's Second Amendment rights, should be widely accepted as a way to verify voting rights, he said. "New Hampshire people aren't accustomed to walking away or stepping down from their civic duty, and I will not either". The commission is also out to prove that Trump would have won the popular vote if it wasn't for millions of imaginary illegal voters. Hassan was New Hampshire's governor from 2013 to 2017. His assertion is based on the fact that more than 5,000 people voted in the state using out-of-state driver's licenses, which is legal, and that few of them subsequently obtained New Hampshire licenses.

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. We often get complaints that there are college students who are out-of-state students who are voting.

The idea that the White House should have appointed a uniformly far-right Republican panel to investigate the integrity of American elections is pretty wild. All members of the state's federal delegation called on Gardner to quit the panel. This alone means that the 5,313 votes are likely not the illegal votes for which the panel has claimed to be hunting.

The specter of "voter fraud" has served as the Republican boogeyman for any election result that the party simply doesn't like.
