President Donald Trump promised an investigation into allegations of voter fraud in last year’s election. He set up a commission to carry out the investigation but when the commission requested voter information from every state, they received a ton of resistance, claiming voter information was personal and didn’t want any of it to get out. Guess what the commission did?
The White House on Thursday made public a trove of emails it received from voters offering comment on its Election Integrity Commission. 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.
It further outraged voters by planning to post that information publicly.
Voters directed that outrage toward the Trump White House and the voter commission, often using profanity-laced language in the 112 pages of emails released this week.
One has to wonder why they would plan to publish voter information that many argued was protected private information? Then you need to ask why they actually did publish the private voter information after receiving so many concerns about protecting that private information. If there was any chance of more states cooperating, those chances are gone and so is the investigation into voter fraud.
