Rep. Terri Sewell, D-Ala., one of the most frequent critics, said the commission received testimony at today's hearing from "political allies and long-time advocates for discriminatory voter restrictions" led by commission vice chairman, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who she says has a history of voter suppression and has been the subject of civil rights complaints.
The New Hampshire-Massachusetts border is a mere 40-minute drive for civic-minded progressives in Boston.
Panel topics include Historical Election Turnout Statistics, Current Election Integrity Issues Affecting Public Confidence, and a Primer on Electronic Voting Systems and Election Integrity.
This sentiment that facts were manipulated to keep Democrats from voting - and to make progressives look bad - was also reciprocated by State Senate Democratic Leader Jeff Woodburn. In the run-up to the meeting, Kobach wrote an article for the discreditedBreitbart website that recycled President Trump's bogus claim about thousands of illegal votes being cast previous year in New Hampshire.

Wonder how Mr. Bissonnette will spin the news about those 5,526 out-of-state voters who never bothered to get New Hampshire driver's licenses? They registered, voted, then went back to their home states.
"I don't want to deprive anyone or put any obstacle in front of any American to keep them from exercising the franchise", he said. "A big college town". "If New Hampshire doesn't have that kind of secretary of state, Democrats should think long and hard about whether the Granite State deserves to continue to have outsized say in our presidential nominating contest". "Some parts of our electorate wish to beat their chests on so-called 'voter fraud, ' and there may be some isolated instances of irregularities, but, I would venture to say, thousands upon thousands more people are stricken from voter rolls without justifiable cause or have their vote suppressed".
A group in Kansas rallied to protest the panel's accusation of voter fraud.
"Making this equation that somehow people not updating their driver's license is an indicator of voter fraud would be nearly as absurd as saying, 'If you have a cash in your wallet, you've robbed a bank, '" Dunlap told his fellow panelists meeting Kobach's assertions were made in a recent article in former Trump adviser Steve Bannon's Brietbart News, a white nationalist-aligned news outlet where he is now a paid columnist. It said it needed the data to review possible cases of voter fraud.
Kobach's decision to write as a paid columnist for Breitbart, which Bannon called "the platform for the Alt-Right", is raising questions of its own: George W. Bush's ethics lawyer Richard Palmer told The Huffington Post that Kobach could be in violation of federal conflict of interest statutes by "getting paid by somebody to write about your official duties".
These contentions were challenged by Jasper, who stressed the wide scope of voter fraud that is blatantly evident across New Hampshire. And, people have undoubtedly moved away from New Hampshire since Election Day.
Republican Kris Kobach's comments came amid growing criticism from Democrats that the commission is bent on encouraging voter suppression. The department, housed under the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, regularly releases news about crimes committed by immigrants in order to raise awareness of the issue, despite decades of nonpartisan research indicating the demographic is far less likely to break the law than American-born citizens. Pence and Kobach were joined on the commission by Hans von Spakovsky, J. Christian Adams and former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell, all men who built their careers trying to suppress the vote, particularly for seniors, students and people of color. That is hardly surprising given his record of lying about election integrity matters.
