Dunlap accuses leader of Trump's voter fraud panel of making 'absurd' claims

"(The places where out-of-state licenses were used most frequently were all college towns.) The fraud Kobach cited was nothing of the sort".

Becker added, in a reference to Harri Hursti, the co-founder of Nordic Innovation Labs, who is set to deliver a presentation on the vulnerabilities of voting machines to hacking: "I also note that not only are there no minorities or women, they somehow did find space for a citizen of Finland".

Hans von Spakovsky, senior legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation, sits on the "Current Election Integrity Issues Affecting Public Confidence" panel, (as well as the Commission) during the second meeting of the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics at Saint Anselm College on September 12, 2017 in Goffstown, New Hampshire.

Temple noted that the attorney general represented on the record, and Assistant Secretary of State David Scanlon represented in his affidavit, that the Secretary of State's Office will make good-faith efforts to ensure that voters are properly informed of SB3's requirements at Tuesday's election."This should include the fact that there are now no penalties, pursuant to this order, for failing to return any documents in connection with same-day voter registration". Voting advocates were concerned earlier this year after the department sent out a request to 44 states asking for information about compliance with federal voter purge requirements on the same day Kobach, vice chairman of the commission, sent a letter to election officials in 50 states asking for voter data. There's your leap in logic. "The commission does not have the ability to do a Jedi mind trick on a state legislature and force them to adopt anything", said Kobach, the Republican secretary of state in Kansas. But there is a high probability that the commission will make no recommendations.

"I did send a private email in February to private individuals who were in the administration to express my personal concerns about the efficacy" of the commission, he said.

"When pressed to explain further, many simply stated that they were provided a ballot, made their selections on the entire ballot and returned the completed ballot", he said. To be clear, there is no proof of widespread illegal voting or voter fraud in the 2016 election - or in any American election.

"If they are picking mainstream Republican officials and/or academics to man this commission it will be an abject failure because there aren't any that know anything about this or who have paid any attention to this issue over the years", the email says.

UConn gets high marks in national ranking of public universities
Joseph University also dropped about 10 spots for the second year in a row to 87 among regional universities in the Midwest . The University of SC was tied for 49th among national public universities with the University of New Hampshire.

Incidentally, there are more people on Kobach's commission than people the Kansas secretary of state has convicted of voter fraud. Kobach had said "it appears" that's why Democrat Maggie Hassan won her U.S. Senate seat in November.

Out of state voters may have changed the outcome of elections in New Hampshire, where 6,540 people were recently found to have registered on the same day using out-of-state drivers licenses.

Dunlap dismissed the idea, calling it a "sterling example of the laws of unintended consequences" that would widen the mission of the background check database, which he said was never meant to be used as an election tool.

"The problem that has occurred because of what you wrote is that the question of whether our election as we have recorded it is real and valid, and it is real and valid", Gardner said, prompting applause from the audience. "And I will not, either", Gardner said. Then again, given the elections we've had going back to Bush v. Gore in 2000, maybe we should be.

"That is something that we all need to stay focused on", Gardner said.

Another commission member, Democratic Maine Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap, was more pointed, calling Kobach's comments "reckless". The only way the right can swing elections their way is through draconian voter ID laws, limiting the number of polling stations and machines in areas where voters support progressive policies and gerrymandering. "This victory means that voters can exercise their most fundamental right to have a voice in our democracy without fear or intimidation'".
