Louisiana denies Trump's request for voter information

Louisiana denies Trump's request for voter information

Calling the request "politically motivated", Louisiana Secretary of State Tom Schedler said he will protect voters' information from the Trump administration just as he did earlier from the Obama administration.

The public voter information available in Louisiana for purchase from the state includes voters' names, addresses, party affiliations and their history of participating in elections.

Several states have rebuffed the commission's information request, arguing the Trump administration is perpetuating a "myth" that voter fraud played a significant role in the 2016 election.

Dunlap is a member of that advisory panel that is led by Vice President Pence and the Secretary of State from Kansas. "I urge Governor Hogan and the State Board of Elections to speak out against this effort and to reject any further attempt to intimidate voters and obtain their personal information".

"I see some problems with the request, if it's identical to what was sent to other states", Menzel said.




A spokesperson for Arizona Secretary of State Michele Reagan told KTAR in an email she has not received the commission's letter.

The commission was created after Trump claimed on Twitter in November that he "won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally".

"The WEC does not have the discretion to deny a request for the public information in the voter registration database if the required fee is paid".

The goal of Trump's voting commission is to push back against voter fraud. State law requires the data must be purchased by a SC registered voter. "What are they trying to hide?" he tweeted.

The Louisiana Democratic Party said political groups and other entities typically pay $5,000 for that information. "And in this case, this is such a high-profile and not-so-competent tech operation that we're likely to see the hacktivists and pranksters take shots at it". Those states are California, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Mexico, New York, South Dakota, Tennessee and Virginia. "For Republican election administrators, this is a federalism issue".
