A federal judge has given a ruling that will allow Donald Trump’s voter fraud charade to continue. Trump. obsessed with the fact that he lost the popular vote by 3 million to Hillary Clinton, has turned to an old Republican favorite excuse to explain what happened. Dead people and illegals voted for Hillary.
A federal judge in DC declined to block President Donald Trump’s voter integrity commission from collecting data on voters from 50 states in a ruling on Monday, handing a win to an administration inundated by lawsuits over the commission’s request.
The commission’s vice chairman, Kris Kobach, sent a letter to all 50 states requesting a slew of voter roll data in late June. Kobach said he was only asking for what was publicly available under the laws of each state, but the request nevertheless triggered rapid-fire litigation in federal courts, including a suit by a privacy rights group in which claimed the commission had failed to comply with federal law and the request violated constitutionally-protected privacy rights. – CNN
Study after study has shown that voter fraud is a myth, one that Republicans cling to in their efforts to suppress votes. It’s long been the case that lower overall turnout is good for Republicans. So anyway that they can suppress minorities from voting, they’re all for.
Enter the puppet known as “president” Trump. While he is consumed by his own ego, and not worried about the actual politics, he’s the perfect zombie to help the Republicans push their shady agenda. And he turned to Kris Kobach, a conspiracy theory right-winger who Trump has put in charge. Kobach wouldn’t know integrity if it hit him like a bus.
Allow the great Samantha Bee to give you rundown of Kobach’s craziness.
