States Refuse to Turn Over Voter Data to White House Commission

Last week, the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity asked secretaries of state about two weeks to provide about a dozen points of voter data. Trump over the weekend asked in a tweet what they had to hide.

In the Maryland statement, Attorney General Brian E. Frosh said his office would not only refuse the administration's request, but went further in calling their actions unconstitutional.

Several other states announced that the president's panel will get more limited data and would also have to pay for it, the way political campaigns do.

"Repeating incessantly a false story of expansive voter fraud, and then creating a commission to rule that narrative, does not make it any more true".

Mississippi Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann, a Republican serving his third term, said in a statement he had not received the commission's request.

"We'll see what the law requires us to provide and not to provide", Whitmire said. For example, no date of birth, no social security number.

Gov. Henry McMaster, an early supporter of Trump's Republican presidential bid past year, believes the state should share voter information that is publicly available, his spokesman Brian Symmes said.

On Friday, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the refusal by state officials to comply was "mostly a political stunt" and that the commission is asking for publicly available data. "For Republican election administrators, this is a federalism issue".

"Maine citizens can be confident that our office will not release any data that is protected under ME law, to the commission or any other requesting entity", Dunlap said in a statement. "At best this commission was set up as a pretext to validate Donald Trump's alternative election facts, and at worst is a tool to commit large-scale voter suppression". There is no other plausible use for this type of information.

"I denied the Obama Justice Department's request and I'm denying President Trump's Commission's request because they are both politically motivated", Schedler said. It's easy to find thousands of people with the same name and year of birth voting in presidential elections, he says, but they are nearly always different voters who share the same name and year of birth.

Frosh also said he finds the request repugnant and it is an effort to indulge Trump's "fantasy" that he won the popular vote.
