Democrats are hiding evidence of illegal voting

After abruptly disbanding the commission on Wednesday, President Trump did not drop his argument, tweeting Thursday that the voting system "is rigged", and blaming the many states that had refused to provide detailed information on individual voters.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Wednesday that Trump had made a decision to disband the commission "rather than engage in endless legal battles at taxpayer expense".

President Donald Trump has signed an order Wednesday to collapse the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, a White House commission he had charged with investigating voter fraud, ending a brief quest for evidence of election theft that generated lawsuits, outrage and some scholarly testimony.

"We mounted successful litigation against the administration that exposed its failure to abide by federal transparency requirements and vowed to keep fighting until the commission was terminated", said Kristen Clarke, executive director of the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law. They asked all 50 states and the District of Columbia to hand over personal voter data including voters' names, voting histories and party affiliations.

The Associated Press reported in July that no state election official planned to give the commission all of the requested information, including Kansas where the panel's Vice Chairman Kris Kobach serves as secretary of state.

Despite Donald Trump and other Republicans claiming that voter fraud is major problem in the country, the Brennan Center for Justice studied the issue and found that it is rare in American elections. "Push hard for Voter Identification!" he posted on the social networking site.

His rival Hillary Clinton received 2.8million more votes overall, but Mr Trump won the all-important Electoral College.

Democrats continue to scream that there's no evidence of voter fraud.

The commission he empaneled set out to counter such imaginary voter fraud, demanding from state governments detailed information about voters. "But rather than address these real threats to election integrity, the commission engaged in a wild-goose chase for voter fraud, demonizing the very American voters whom we should all be helping to participate".

Concerned that this was an attempt to suppress certain demographics of registered voters, liberal advocacy groups launched eight lawsuits against the commission, essentially grinding it to a halt after its second meeting in September.

Kobach said even a handful of fraudulent votes is enough to decide close elections.
