Re: the July 9 column "States can find a way to work with voter fraud panel."
Joseph Morgan lays out a case for the state cooperating with the President’s move on "voter fraud" partly stemming from Trump’s inability to acknowledge the reality that he didn’t win the popular vote. His appointed agent, Kris Kobach, is running this effort from his experience with his “Cross Check“ program, which was used to delete voters with similar names from voter rolls in various states, even though there is little evidence of voter fraud. Morgan failed to mention the real problem is disenfranchising hundreds, if not thousands, who go to vote and find their names removed from the rolls.
The GOP feels that the fewer citizens who vote, the better their candidates do in elections. Why don’t we try to prevent further skulduggery in voting by encouraging the vote through automatic registration, using paper ballots to provide a “paper” trail, and keeping the process decentralized to the states?
