Shaheen compares Trump, Kobach voter fraud claims to Russian interference in election

New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan takes the stage to thank supporters with her husband Tom daughter Meg and family friend Liz Murphy

Convened by President Donald Trump, the 12-member held its second meeting on September 12, 2017, at Saint Anselm College in Manchester, New Hampshire.

"It could get a little feisty", said Matthew Dunlap, Maine's secretary of state and a Democratic member of the commission.

Trump formed the election integrity commission earlier this year and Kobach was soon named vice chairman.

In the lead up to the commission's meeting in New Hampshire this Tuesday, Kris Kobach, the commission's chairman, penned an op-ed for Breitbart News in which he recycled a legend well known in MA and New Hampshire politics.

Like the man who appointed him to the Voter Integrity Commission, Kris Kobach is a liar. The actual legal requirement is that a "driver of a motor vehicle who holds a valid driver's license in another jurisdiction" get a New Hampshire driver's license in 60 days (emphasis added). "We're heading down that path to disenfranchise segments of our society and say to them you're not good enough to vote".

The computer security panel was the final business of a daylong hearing that also looked at prevalence of voter fraud and what can be done to combat it. "There are many steps that Congress and states can take to make voting easier and expand citizen participation".

HANS VON SPAKOVSKY: Why do so many people not want the commission asking questions? But he also clarified his claims about the state, acknowledging that New Hampshire allows college students and others in similar situations living in the state to vote in the state without getting driver's licenses.

Rather than admit his obvious biases, Kobach carps that "the mainstream media has ignored the problem of voter fraud and belittled those of us who are trying to do something about it".

The former DNC chair has major concerns about the Kris Kobach-led effort and about a new law in New Hampshire that could restrict the student vote.

The Election Integrity Commission "should be expanding the rights of our citizens to vote, instead of arguably looking for ways to keep people from voting", Alan L. King, an Alabama probate judge, wrote in a scathing open letter. The ACLU accused the commission of "rigging the panels" with witnesses who raise "allegations of fraud so it can reach a result that will make voting harder".

Storm Katia rapidly weakens after making landfall in Mexico
The hurricane is located 120 miles southeast of Tampico, Mexico, and 125 miles north of Veracruz, Mexico. Jose has winds of 75 miles per hour and is quickly strengthening, but poses no immediate threat to land.

Ken Block, a researcher for ex-White House Chief Strategist Stephen Bannon's watchdog group, the Government Accountability Institute, shared with the commission a study he conducted that claims there were almost 40,000 instances of double-voting in last year's election.

These contentions were challenged by Jasper, who stressed the wide scope of voter fraud that is blatantly evident across New Hampshire. "I think we will find that within that 5,000, there will be many who did not comply with the law".

ME secretary of state and commission member Matthew Dunlap expressed concern in the meeting that using a system for background checks could create "unintended consequences".

"It is likely that some unknown number of these individuals moved out of New Hampshire, it is possible that a few may have never driven in New Hampshire or have ceased driving, however, it is expected that an unknown number of the remainder continue to live and drive in New Hampshire", Safety Commissioner John Barthelmes and Secretary of State Bill Gardner wrote, according to Fox News. There isn't a single Democratic official that will do anything other than obstruct any investigation of voter fraud and issue constant public announcements criticizing the commission and what it is doing, making claims that it is engaged in voter suppression.

He said the system has most of the information registrars are interested in - chiefly citizenship status and criminal history - when they sign up voters.

Oxlade-Chamberlain moved to the Merseyside club recently for a fee of £40 million. Whether Wenger decides to take his complaints any further remains to be seen.

Dunlap dismissed the idea, calling it a "sterling example of the laws of unintended consequences" that would widen the mission of the background check database, which he said was never meant to be used as an election tool. Already, the commission's unofficial leader has warmed up for the session by suggesting that the election in November of Sen.
