Why even discuss the point?

 

It came from LIFEZETTE.

 

FAKE NEWS!!!!!!!!!

 

 

Conservative media such as LIFEZETTE serves the important function of manufacturing excuses to appease the base. In this particular case they can now believe the problem is the evil Soros (again) and not have to bother their little heads wondering if there's anything fishy about the Voter Commission. Problem solved.

jimc - We all know Republicans like to appear to be doing something positrive to disguise the fact they're doing something evil, but think about your "evidence" vote fraud is happening: Some twit entered "my cat" as a voter. People also registered their dogs and famous dead people and some even voted for "Mickey Mouse" as a write-in.

 

All of that is totally irrelivant BECAUSE "my cat" never voted, nor did any of the other "mistakes" on the voter registration rolls.

 

But we also all know Republicans are prone to accepting stupid stuff because it sounds like it might support other stupid stuff they believe, so no wonder they support Der Trumper's ego-protection squad whose real mission is to spread lies that will divert attention from the YUGE lie HE told about there having been over 3 million bogus votes cast and they were all for hillary.

 

jrbush already spent five years and millions of tax dollars investigating "voter fraud" and here's what they found: 

 

One ex-convict was so unfamiliar with the rules that he provided his prison-issued identification card, stamped “Offender,” when he registered just before voting.

A handful of convictions involved people who voted twice. More than 30 were linked to small vote-buying schemes in which candidates generally in sheriff’s or judge’s races paid voters for their support.

 

All they found was people making honest mistakes, and a handful being bribed to attempt to influence local elections, but the effort NEVER changed the outcome. But GOPers need cover for their flagrant efforts to suppress the legitimate vote, so they constantly cry "fraud" and demand and investigation and then totally ignore the results of their investigation because it proves they are filled with beans, so then they yell FRAUD even louder.

Has it occurred to you that it would help if there was any evidence that the vote is not honest? There isn't. As I said before, with Kobach's history of voter suppression, letting him near voter roll info is like hiring a pedophile at a daycare.

Trump’s Voter Fraud Commission

Soros-Funded Groups Fight to Stop Trump’s Voter Fraud Commission Left-wing organizations spending millions to halt effort to ensure the integrity of U.S. elections

 

by Margaret Menge | Updated 12 Jul 2017 at 6:37 AM

 

President Donald Trump’s voter fraud commission announced late Monday it’s temporarily suspending its collection of voter data from states following a lawsuit by the Electronic Privacy Information Center.

The Electronic Privacy Information Center had asked for a temporary restraining order in its July 3 suit, saying the commission should have had a plan to protect the data on individual voters before it set about collecting it from the state.

 

But there’s more to the story.

 

The Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) is headed by an attorney named Marc Rotenberg, who previously worked as counsel to super-liberal Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.). And while the organization claims to focus on privacy, it also recently sued to force the IRS to release Trump’s tax returns, information that, unlike voter records, which are typically given out to any member of the public who requests it, really is confidential.

 

The organization, like many others fighting to stop the release and review of voter roll data, is funded by George Soros through his Open Society Foundations.

 

The Open Society Foundations have a $940 million budget and a staff of 1,600 with 47 offices in 42 countries. It originally supported post-Soviet countries in their transition to democracy, but now in the U.S. it funds the radical Black Lives Matter movement as well as numerous groups that are fighting to prevent the U.S. government from enforcing its immigration laws. And it's now funding efforts to stop a federal review of voter rolls in the U.S.

 

The ACLU, which also sued the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity this month to try to stop it from collecting voter data, is also partially funded by Soros.

 

In 2011, the ACLU got $11 million from the Open Society Foundations and was the No. 4 top recipient of Soros money in the U.S. It's suing the commission for failure to hold open meetings and to make its meeting minutes available to the public.

 

Several other Soros-funded groups have gotten involved as interveners in lawsuits brought by the Public Interest Legal Foundation, which is suing to compel counties and states to maintain their voter rolls and remove ineligible voters.

 

"Whenever we try to sue, a Soros-funded group jumps in," says Logan Churchwell, the organization's research director and spokesman. "They're working in concert. We know that, because we're fighting them in concert."

 

PILF is now suing Broward County, Florida, for its failure to remove ineligible voters from its rolls, as is required by the National Voter Registration Act ("Motor Voter"). The local chapter of the Service Employees International Union filed to join the suit as an intervener on the side of the Broward County Supervisor of Elections, with attorneys provided by the Soros-funded groups Project Vote (the now-defunct voter mobilization arm of the former ACORN) and Demos, which has gotten several grants from the Open Society Institute and whose board is chaired by the daughter of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.).

 

"There's no question about the ideology this is coming from and what they're trying to do," says Churchwell.

 

He says millions of dollars are being spent by these groups to try to stop any effort to remove ineligible voters from the rolls, and that their goal seems to be to eliminate the idea of voter registration entirely — and to allow anyone to vote.

 

"Really, that's where they're going with this. If you live here, you get to vote," he says, saying these groups want everyone, including non-citizens, to be able to choose the next president.

"They mean everyone, everyone, everyone," he said.

 

But Churchwell is optimistic that the commission will prevail and will ultimately get all of the voter data from the states.

 

"This is not serious," he says of the commission's temporary suspension of efforts to collect the state voter rolls.

 

"They can do all they want," he says of EPIC and the ACLU. "The reality is that it's a federal commission collecting public information."

 

The biggest fear of these groups, he says, is that the government is going to study the voter registration system "from an evidence-based approach" — by studying the actual roll of voters.

"I would wager that the average critic of this commission has never actually downloaded and looked at the voter roll," he says. "It's pretty bad when I can flip through a roll and find someone with the last name 'cat' and the first name 'my.'"
