Trump's voter-fraud commission wants your info and make it public

 article about trump voter fraud
Trump and his voter-fraud commission has sent a letter to all 50 states asking for their full voter-roll data. The data they are asking would include the name of the voter, the address, date of birth, party affiliation, and of course, voting history since 2006 for every voter.

And while you're at it, maybe you want my Facebook password, recordings of my phone conversations, and list of my deepest darkest secrets as well? And while we're all in a sharing mode, maybe Trump wants to share his Full Tax Returns too? And his birth certificate (yeah, yeah, we know you were probably born in outer space, but would still nice to see it on paper).

The letter was made public by Kris Kobach, the Connecticut secretary of state, stating that "any documents that are submitted to the full Commission will also be made available to the public."

States have already started resisting the idiotic request, saying that they are not ready to send this data.

"I have no intention of honoring this request." -- Governor Terry McAuliffe, Virginia

In addition to States, also advocates for voting rights and civil liberties are sounding alarm bells. Myrna Perez from New York University Law School's Brennan Center for Justice said that "The concern is that this is going to be used to justify regressive and disenfranchising federal law."
