    ACLU files FOIA request seeking evidence of Trump's voter fraud allegations

    ACLU files FOIA request seeking evidence of Trump's voter fraud allegations

    Published May 14, 2017
    Fox News

    The American Civil Liberties Union filed a Freedom of Information Act request Thursday seeking any facts or evidence supporting President Trump’s claims that the 2016 presidential election was muddied by widespread voter fraud.

    Dale Ho, the director of the ACLU’s Voting Rights Project, called Trump’s establishment of a commission to review alleged voter fraud and suppression a “boondoggle” and part of his plan to “spread his own fake news about election integrity,” The Hill reported.

    “The president has alleged that ‘millions of votes’ were ‘illegally’ cast ‘for the other side.’ No concrete evidence has been provided thus far to support the president’s serious indictment against American democracy. Yet the president’s allegations are the basis of an executive order to establish a ‘Commission on Election Integrity,’” the ACLU said in its request. “This FOIA demands that the government release the factual basis and evidence supporting the president’s allegations.”

    Trump signed the executive order Thursday to review alleged voter fraud. Vice President Mike Pence will chair the commission, while Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who has investigated voter fraud in Kansas, will serve as vice chair. Other members of the commission include: Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson (R), New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner (D), Maine Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap (D), Christie McCormick, commissioner of the election assistance commission, and former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell (R).

    The White House said the commission will review practices that affect the integrity of federal elections--spanning improper registrations, improper voting, fraudulent registrations, fraudulent voting and voting suppression.

    Voting experts and many lawmakers have said they haven't seen anything to suggest that millions of people voted illegally, including House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz. The Utah Republican said his committee won't be investigating voter fraud.

    I'll be glad when Chaffetz is out of the US Congress. They say he's not running for Congress again, he wants to be Governor of Utah.

    Hey! Can someone file a FOIA requesting any information that shows there has been "collusion" with the Russians over DNC hacking?

    What is the harm in investigating voter fraud. I mean the democrats brought up Russia's involvement in the election and are so worried about voter suppression why wouldn't everyone want an investigation, they are the ones yelling the loudest about votes being recounted. Why not check and see how much voter fraud was out there and maybe we will get some answers once and all and remove any doubt, how deeply our election was effected by Russia interference. Then we can fix it. What is everyone afraid of? The ACLU has become worthless.
