Louisiana won't give voter data to feds

Maryland's attorney general says the state is prohibited by law from providing personal information on voters being sought by President Donald Trump's voting commission.

"They can go jump in the Gulf of Mexico, and Mississippi is a great state to launch from", Mississippi Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann, a Republican, said in a statement released Friday. Louisiana Secretary of State Tom Schedler's office said staff and attorneys were reviewing the request.

SC election officials have received a formal request for voter information from the presidential commission investigating voter fraud.

"Wisconsin statutes do not permit the state to release a voter's date of birth, driver license number or Social Security number".

"Numerous states are refusing to give information to the very distinguished VOTER FRAUD PANEL", Trump tweeted of officials from more than 20 states who so far have questioned the panel's request.

The commission was created after Trump claimed on Twitter in November that he "won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally". Texas Secretary of State Rolando Pablos didn't list what records would be sent to the commission, but the Republican said in a statement he will protect private information.

76ers reportedly sign shooting guard JJ Redick
The Wolves, Nets and 76ers were known to be interested in Redick, who spent the past four seasons with the Los Angeles Clippers . He will now start next to Fultz this fall.


The White House said Monday that all 50 states were contacted by the commission.

This Commission needs to understand clearly, disclosure of such sensitive information is more likely to diminish voter participation rather than foster it. "My response to the Commission is, you're not going to play politics with Louisiana's voter data, and if you are, then you can purchase the limited public information available by law, to any candidate running for office".

In addition to Louisiana, states like California, Kentucky, and MS will not comply.

The objective of Trump's voting commission is to push back against voter fraud. "For Republican election administrators, this is a federalism issue".

He said there was no evidence that Maryland's 2016 election, or any state's election, was compromised, and urged Gov. Larry Hogan and elections officials to vociferously reject the panel's efforts.

"We understand concerns about voters' privacy". Trump's Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, a Wisconsin native who previously served as the Republican National Committee chairman and chair of the Republican Party of Wisconsin, has always been a proponent of voter fraud theories.
