"We are told that the members of this commission are to be named on Tuesday", von Spakovsky wrote. "There are many steps that Congress and states can take to make voting easier and expand citizen participation".

A commission created by President Donald Trump to investigate his allegations of voter fraud is scheduled to meet in New Hampshire.

The meeting Agenda includes the panel of all white men working to take away the right to vote for millions of Americans. The left has spent nine months fantasizing that Russian Federation struck a deal with Trump, a theory for which evidence has failed to materialize.

After all, if a person does not accept that mass voter fraud is a reality in the United States, it would pretty hard to marshal evidence to convince her otherwise: A five-year investigation into voter fraud by the George W. Bush administration turned up exactly 26 instances of the phenomenon; a November 2014 study turned up virtually no evidence of in-person voter fraud; and research conducted by the Brennan Center for Justice that same year uncovered 31 credible allegations of voter fraud for every 1 billion votes cast - a fraction of the number of legal citizens who were denied the right to vote for lacking proper identification during the same time period.

The president's claims, and his appointed commission, have been widely and repeatedly criticized by many political analysts and experts in the United States - not all of them Democrats.

"Poll workers told Veritas operatives that they did not need to live in the state to vote, that they could use a MA driver's license and that they could fill out a form if they had no ID", Scarborough recounted.

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, the head of Trump's voter suppression panel, is back with yet another lie about having proof of real and widespread voter fraud.

There was no mention of the data request during the commission's meeting, which included presentations about historical election turnout data, electronic voting systems and issues affecting public confidence in elections.

Xiaomi takes on the MacBook Pro by adding back some ports
Moving on, the keyboard is backlit and the company has claimed that the keyboard area is 19 percent larger than the MacBook Pro . Its 15.6-inch display only has a resolution of 1080p, which seems a bit out of step with other high-end machines these days.

"I will continue to refuse to comply with this commission's requests for voter data because it would compromise the privacy of California voters and because the commission has no authority". Indeed, the commission could use the data to create a national voter database for the first time in USA history, and it could be used to unlawfully purge voters with identical names and birth dates.

That tracks with one of the other reports filed in the public comments with the voter commission. Tuesday's meeting, coupled with Temple's ruling, demonstrates that, in the Trump era, this judicial presumption of good faith toward Republican-backed restrictions on the right to vote should be obsolete.

Hillsborough County Superior Court Judge Charles Temple listens to arguments on voting laws in Hillsbourouth County Superior Court South in Nashua Monday.

But even in the short time since Kobach's claim, his analysis has not held up to scrutiny. But the testimony heard yesterday makes it clear that such a deal is quite thinkable, now that American politicians of any party realize that the world's best hackers can hand the election to them without a trace of evidence. It is a complete waste of taxpayer dollars, and Congress should block any federal funds from being used to fund the commission's work.

Democrats have vowed to use the legislative process to try to derail the commission. Prior to his arrival, Kobach wrote on Breitbart (where he is a paid contributor) that "facts have come to light that indicate that a pivotal, close election was likely changed through voter fraud".

"I am deeply concerned that falsehoods about illegal voting are being spread as a pretext for restricting access to the ballot box", Shaheen said.

The anecdotes run counter to prevailing wisdom among many academics and voting rights advocates that voter fraud doesn't happen or is too infrequent to deserve study. Protecting the sanctity of our electoral system is an American issue, not a partisan one. The Pence-Kobach commission has other designs, and I urge Granite Staters, and people throughout the nation, to be vigilant. We must defend our democracy.
