The liberal mainstream media seemingly can't help itself; in all things connected to President Donald Trump, it feels the need to distort or just outright lie about what his administration is doing.
Such is the case of the Presidential Commission on Election Integrity, which has been charged with looking at ways to remove voter fraud and to restore the American people's faith in the electoral process. But the media is reporting two different lies about that effort—one, that the commission is only asking for voter data in an effort to help Republicans and two, that the vast majority of states are refusing to participate—and the commission's vice chair has had about enough of it.
The White House released the following statement Wednesday afternoon from Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach:
On June 28, the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity issued a letter requesting that states provide publicly available voter data as permitted under their state laws. At present, 20 states have agreed to provide the publicly available information requested by the commission, and another 16 states are reviewing which information can be released under their state laws. In all, 36 states have either agreed or are considering participating with the commission's work to ensure the integrity of the American electoral system.
While there are news reports that 44 states have 'refused' to provide voter information to the commission, these reports are patently false, more 'fake news.' At present, only 14 states and the District of Columbia have refused the commission's request for publicly available voter information. Despite media distortions and obstruction by a handful of state politicians, this bipartisan commission on election integrity will continue its work to gather the facts through public records requests to ensure the integrity of each American's vote because the public has a right to know.
