09 Jul Trump’s “Voter Fraud” Investigation vs Privacy Lawsuit Goes to Court
Arguments on Friday questioning President Donald Trump’s voter fraud commission’s requests for sensitive data were heard on a federal court.
The Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) filed a lawsuit over the July 4 weekend against the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity after the latter requested states to provide voter info including names, addresses, last 4 of SSNs, political affiliation, voting histories and felony records.
Many states have declined to provide the commission’s demands. At least 44 states are recorded to have refused to provide all or some of the information asked.
EPIC’s defends that the commission’s actions is violating the E-Government Act of 2002. There are also concerns that the sensitive voter data will be received on a .mil web address hosted by the Pentagon.
