Kobach: What Are States 'Trying to Hide' in Not Providing Voter Data?

In a rebuttal to states that have announced they would not comply with President Donald Trump's request to supply voter data to his commission on election integrity, the panel's vice chair on Friday questioned if perhaps they had something to hide.

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach said the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity can't force states to comply with the request or any recommendations the commission might make, The Hill reported Friday.

"Frankly, if a state like Kentucky or California won't provide available information, one has to ask the question, 'Why not?'" Kobach told NPR Friday. "I mean, what are they trying to hide if they don't want a presidential advisory commission to study their state voter rolls?"

At last count, 25 states have said they would not turn over the data requested by the commission, The Washington Post reported.

Information asked for included names, addresses, birth dates and party affiliations of registered voters in each state, as well as felony convictions, military statuses, the last four digits of Social Security numbers and voting records dating back to 2006, The Hill detailed.

Only states controlled by democrats go figure.

Maybe the states are trying to protect their residents personal information. As they should. It has been reported that the task force hasn't even set up secure methods for the states to even transmit this data. This is nothing more than a wild goose chase and a distraction. Even most Red states have no interest in participating.

No wonder George Soros has infiltrated the States' Secretaries of State AND the States' Attorneys' offices.

If Trump said there was millions of voter fraud and now wants to prove it everyone should be for it.

1:29, If, the task force hasn't even set up secure methods for the states to even transmit this data, then it MUST FOLLOW that the States have no secure method of transmitting our VOTES during an election, thereby PROVING that widespread voter fraud is not only possible, but that half the States believe it's true.

Now, tell me again about your "Task Farce"!LOL!
