"Curses! Foiled again!" - Synidly Whiplash
Good Day World!
Trump and his minions have backed off from their extraordinary attempt to gather voters’ personal information, following a barrage of legal challenges, an outcry from state officials, and a rash of voter registration cancellations by people concerned about their privacy.
The response to Trump puppet, Kris Kobach's attempt to gather personal information on American voters has been six lawsuits and a universal outcry of "foul!" among the 50 states.
Koback sent a letter out on June 28th asking state officials to provide names of the country's 150 million voters. In addition, the letter sought voters’ addresses, social security numbers, voting histories, party affiliation, criminal histories, military status, and more.
Not one state – not even Kansas, where Kobach is secretary of state and in charge of elections – has agreed to comply fully with the request.
Maryland’s attorney general, Brian Frosh, called the request “repugnant”. “It appears designed only to intimidate voters,” he wrote, “and to indulge President Trump’s fantasy that he won the popular vote.”
In other cases, voters said straight out they did not trust the presidential commission. One North Carolina voter said it “smells funny.”
Once against, resistance to Trump's draconian orders has prevailed. It's not the first time, nor will it be the last. It's a testament to the American people that they are not going to go quietly into the dark during the Era of Trump.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
