Vote Fraud Commission Releases Public Comments, Email Addresses And All

Vote Fraud Commission Releases Public Comments, Email Addresses And All

The White House then said this information would be made available to the public.

Voters directed that outrage toward the Trump White House and the voter commission, often using profanity-laced language in the emails released this week, 112 pages of them.

"Many people will get their identity stolen, which will harm the economy", wrote another.

In all, 44 states have in part or in totality declined to provide the requested voter data. Why?

Almost 3,500 voters in Colorado as of Friday have canceled their voter registrations over the state's decision to turn over public information to President Trump's voter fraud commission. Numerous emails include email and home addresses, phone information, employment and voter affiliation. TPM only published screengrabs from the documents that do not include identifying information.

"While this data may serve a objective", Williams wrote in his letter to the commission Friday, "a single request for data that lacks the non-public data necessary to accurately match voters across states can't be used to effectively assess the accuracy of voter rolls".

"This request is very concerning", wrote one. Many of comments made it clear that they didn't want their voter data released, didn't want their personal information to be made public.

"DO NOT RELEASE ANY OF MY VOTER DATA, PERIOD", said one person whose full name and email address were subsequently released in the collection of emails.

Williams' letter was a response to a commission solicitation for voter information from Colorado about two weeks ago.

It isn't atypical to release some personal information with public comments.

Which probably counts as irony on some level, given that numerous messages ran along the lines of, "As a private citizen I must tell you that your request for voting information from the states is completely inappropriate".

Another 182 Colorado voters signed up to become "confidential voters", a designation that allows their information to be withheld.

On Thursday, the White House published public responses to its Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, many of them critical of that commission's stalled and controversial effort to solicit voter data from states.

A spokesman for Vice President Mike Pence who previously responded to inquires about the voter commission did not immediately return a request for comment.

People from all over the country emailed the Commission, which was established after Trump proclaimed there was massive voter fraud during the 2016 election, complaining about the odd ask, not thinking that the government would retaliate.
