Tweetin’ Donny has a big investigation going to finally “prove” that he won the popular vote, which he lost by about 3 million. See, 3-5 million votes were cast by illegals, all for Hillary Clinton, and that’s a scandal.
We’ve got something called “The Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity” looking into it. It’s headed by “a divisive conservative voting rights expert”, Hans von Spakovsky, who no one seems to know much about as no biographical information was included with his appointment announcement. We do know he’s a believer in Trump’s fantasies though. From the link:
For more than a decade, von Spakovsky has been a polarizing figure in voting rights circles, with conservatives championing his efforts to tighten regulations and shore up voter roll inconsistencies. His critics point to a career in which decisions have led to disenfranchisement among poor and minority groups.
“I think there are number of people who have been active in promoting false and exaggerated claims of voter fraud and using that as a pretext to argue for stricter voting and registration rules,” said Rick Hasen, an election law expert at the University of California at Irvine. “And von Spakovsky’s at the top of the list.”
After von Spakovsky’s appointment was announced, Hasen wrote on his blog that it was “a big middle finger” from Trump to people “serious about fixing problems with our elections.”
This week, the commission kicked off its big show with a letter sent to the 50 Secretaries of State around the country asking for names, addresses, birth dates and party affiliations of registered voters in each state. It also sought felony convictions, military statuses, the last four digits of Social Security numbers and voting records dating back to 2006.
From this Politico piece,
Many states immediately raised concerns and voiced their opposition to providing the information.
Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes (D) said that she does not intend to release the data.
“The president created his election commission based on the false notion that ‘voter fraud’ is a widespread issue — it is not,” Lundergan Grimes said. “I do not intend to release Kentuckians’ sensitive personal data to the federal government.”
Mississippi Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann, a Republican, similarly said he won’t turn over any information to the panel, telling members of the voter fraud commission to, “go jump in the Gulf of Mexico.”
Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf, a Democrat, took a similar line.
All three of these states went to Trump in the election, but, at least so far, their leadership recognizes a preposterous breach of ethics and precedent when they see one.
Nonetheless, the prognosticators here at GOML are now going on record as predicting that this investigation will absolutely yield “evidence” that will 100% vindicate Tweetin’ Donny, and that will make an important contribution to his project of totally devaluing facts and creating “truth” as needed.
And the long-term fallout of this effort will be more restrictive voting laws that favor one particular party and I think we all know which one.
