Trump’s Voter Fraud Gang Releases Emails From Voters, Without Removing Sensitive Personal Information

These guys are dangerously incompetent and uncaring
Politics • Views: 29,016

When the Trump gang announced their ill-fated plan to demand the personal information of every voter in the United States, including addresses, partial social security numbers, party affiliation and voting history, a whole lot of people got upset because Trump and his cronies also announced they would make all of this information available to the public.

Many states have now refused to cooperate with this outrageous plan (from an “election integrity commission” led by far right operative Kris Kobach), and many people wrote emails to this commission expressing their outrage and demanding that their private information NOT be released publicly.

“You will open up the entire voting population to a massive amount of fraud if this data is in any way released,” one voter wrote.

“Many people will get their identity stolen, which will harm the economy,” wrote another.

“I respectfully request, as an American-born citizen legally eligible to vote for two decades, that you leave my voter data and history alone, do not publish it, and do nothing with it,” said another.

But wait, you ask; how does the Washington Post know what these people wrote to the “Election Integrity Commission?”

They know because this week the Trump gang released 112 pages of these emails — and failed to redact any of the personal information in them.

Unfortunately for these voters and others who wrote in, the Trump administration did not redact any of their personal information from the emails before releasing them to the public. In some cases, the emails contain not only names, but email addresses, home addresses, phone numbers and places of employment of people worried about such information being made available to the public.

The Washington Post is not publishing any of this information because in most cases it does not appear that the individuals were aware their comments would be shared by the White House.

“This request is very concerning,” wrote one. “The federal government is attempting to get the name, address, birth date, political party, and social security number of every voter in the country.” That email, published by the White House, contained the sender’s name and home address.

So if you were wondering how careful the Trump gang would be about protecting the privacy of American citizens, now you know. They simply don’t give a shit.

We already know Trump can’t be trusted with classified information…he gave it to the fucking Russians to show off his newfound access. Why trust him with our voter data?

Oh, and some fucking jesus-grifters are writing a book on Trump’s faith…

More than 3,000 Colorado voters have canceled their registrations since Trump election integrity commission request

[…]

County election officials told The Denver Post that voters have typically given them two reasons for the withdrawals: They don’t trust President Donald Trump’s voter integrity commission, and they didn’t realize how much of their voter registration information was already public under state law.

[…]

Another 182 Colorado voters signed up to become “confidential voters,” a designation that allows their information to be withheld.

To become one, a voter must sign an affidavit saying they’re worried that they or someone in their family will be harassed or in physical danger if their voter information is made public. The provision was added primarily with law enforcement and victims of domestic violence in mind, but anyone can apply if they have a reasonable fear of harm. There’s also a $5 application fee.

[…]

It’s working already, complete with a poll tax.

Unbelievable.

Under the guise of voter integrity they are destroying voter integrity.

Under health legislation they destroy health.

Under environmental protection they are destroying the environment.

What was up is now down. What was always right is now so wrong.

Unbelievable.

Where Kennedy asked what we could do…Trump is asking everyone to bend over and take what he is going to do.

This is the kind of thing that leads to revolt.

I know they’re a bunch of incompetent weasels, but they’re also evil fucking bullies. It’s who they are and what they do. When people show you who they are, believe them.

The folks in Colorado who cancelled their voter registrations are playing right into the hands of these assholes. There’s no fucking way I’d let anyone intimidate me to the point that I’d give up my rights. Not without a fight goddammit. NO.

A few other interesting disbursements in the Trump 2020 docs:

Giles-Pascale (his digital “guru” guy from Texas) took in a whopping $2,019,883 during this filing period.

Another law firm, Jones/Day was paid $321,333.

But I’m sure that doesn’t create any conflict with the lawyers from that firm who received a blanket waiver clearing them of professional ethical conflicts.

The former Jones Day lawyers freed from parts of an anti-revolving door ethics pledge were Donald McGahn II, Gregory Katsas, Ann Donaldson, James Burnham, David Morrell and Blake Delaplane. All now work within the White House counsel’s office, which McGahn runs.

The ethics waiver says the six lawyers can meet and communicate with their former law firm, even though the firm represents President Donald Trump’s campaign committee, the Republican National Committee and other Trump political action committees in transactional, litigation and general legal advice situations.

nationallawjournal.com

Also, there are 7 pages (about 3 entries per page) of money spent at Trump Hotels, Trump Golf Courses and Trump restaurants (not including the rent paid to Trump for offices for the 2020 campaign.)

I’m sure this is all fine with the GOP. Nothing to see here—move along.

Seriously—that’s what the asshole said this morning.

Oh—and he also throws shade on John Lewis (before he says that he, Blackwell, worked as hard as Lewis, to fight for voting rights.)

OK—if you were worried about the voter suppression/intimidation commission releasing un-redacted information, Ken Blackwell (king of releasing voter information) says it’s all about transparency, and to set your mind at ease, he points out that an Amazon Dot is much more troublesome than the hideous voter suppression squad’s shenanigans.

Seriously—that’s what the asshole said this morning.

rawstory.com

Oh—and he also throws shade on John Lewis (before he says that he, Blackwell, worked as hard as Lewis, to fight for voting rights.)

DOG—I HATE THAT FUCKING LYING, CHEATING, SCUMBAG ASSHOLE.

I’m with you BeachDem. He is so righteous about everything he does. One of Gawd’s True Warriors.

Hmm, they sorted ballots by party? And who is (was) the Peace and Freedom Party?

I’ll forgive you for voting for Ronald Reagan your first time out, we all make mistakes. (I rag on my wife for doing the same). My first time (wait, that sounds like a cheesy Romance novel line) was for Jimmy Carter.

They were a bunch of uber-left wingers…a little left of what we call progressives today. At the time, they were considered commies.

So, to follow up on Brad Pascale, Trump’s digital “guru” (who’s already making big coin from the trump 2020 campaign), he’s going to testify before the House committee.

According to a 2016 Wired profile, he started out with a $500 investment after graduating from Trinity University, cold calling potential clients before graduating to building websites for organizations including the Trump Winery and Eric Trump Foundation.

He told the magazine Trump gave “a farm boy from Kansas” a chance. “When I was successful, he continued to reward me over and over again, because I worked hard and produced success,” he said.

During the presidential campaign, the Trump camp paid a whopping $91 million to the firm, which prior to 2016 had no experience in political campaigning.

I’m certain he’ll be 100% impartial, honest and forthcoming.

Again, who cares if Hillary was a Goldwater Republican when she was young. Hell, I voted for Reagan my first election - and was registered Peace & Freedom (because I was a stupid little fucker who liked the sound of it)…that was actually kind of funny at the time, as I grew up in a very rural ranch community in northern California…when I asked for my ballot, there was a big stack of Republican ones, a very small stack of Democrat ones, and a third ballot stack by itself…The lady said, “Republican or Democrat?” and I said, “Peace and Freedom” and she said, “Oh, you’re the one…”

Some years (decades) ago I actual voted for the Peace and Freedom candidate for attorney general of CA because he was actually the best candidate. Naturally, he didn’t win, but it is a fond memory.

So we headed ‘round the corner to Heckscher State Park (it’s literally five minutes from our house) and hit the trails. Ended up doing about 8 of the 20 miles of trails. Not bad for the first ride of the year, for an old man with bum knees.

Police shootings in the US are out of control, but having it so easy in the US for people to be heavily armed for no good reason is also out of control.
