Maryland joins states that won’t give data to Trump’s election commission

Maryland will not provide data on the state’s registered voters to President Trump’s election commission, a top state elections official said Monday, joining more than two dozen other states that have partially or entirely rejected the request. “Disclosure of some of the information encompassed by your request may be prohibited under State and/or federal law,” Linda H. Lamone, the state administrator for the State Board of Elections, wrote in a letter sent Monday to the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity. “Accordingly, I am denying your request.” The commission, which is chaired by Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach (R), asked states to provide voter names, dates of birth, portions of Social Security numbers, voting histories and, if possible, party identifications as part of a broad inquiry in Trump’s allegations of widespread voter fraud in the 2016 election.

sidneyf 10:15 AM CDT Thank you, Maryland, for standing up to this bully. Using the nation's highest office to extract unprecedented personal information for political gain is just the latest outrageous attempted abuse of power foisted on us by those malevolent idiots. Can't wait until Mr. Mueller's investigation is complete and we know the depth of the Administration's incompetence and corruption.
