The evidence is clear from numerous studies — and we all know — that voter fraud is virtually non-existent in our country. Researchers at the Brennan Center have found that it is rarer than death by lightning.
The real threat to our democracy is the kind of voter suppression that Kobach promotes.
If the goal of your commission truly is to “identify the laws, rules, policies, activities, strategies and practices that undermine the American people’s confidence in the integrity of the voting process,” you will appoint people to lead it who have a track record of strengthening voting rights and improving voter participation — not those with extremist agendas who want to erode voting rights.
If that’s true, you must rescind your appointment of Kobach. He is unfit to serve in this capacity, and his appointment does nothing but telegraph your intention to make this commission as fraudulent as your claims about voter fraud in the November election.
Kris Kobach has no business investigating voting in this country
