The New York Times and other Democratic Party megaphones declared victory when Trump shut down the Presidential Committee on Election Integrity and moved it into Homeland Security.
But this was Kobach’s original plan. In January of last year, Kobach gave Trump a scheme to use the cloak of darkness provided by Homeland Security to do its dark magic on US voter rolls.
Specifically, Homeland Security could hunt for “aliens” on the voter rolls by matching the names of the deported, such as Jose’ Hernandez, with any Jose’ Hernandez on voter rolls in Arizona or any other swing state.
Kobach’s plan was not some panel with cameras and open record requests and meetings announced in the federal register.
So, once again, Kobach is ahead of the Democrats. His “Crosscheck” purge system elected Donald Trump; now, adding in a bogus hunt for “alien” voters, he’ll guarantee the GOP’s lock on Congress in 2018.
The NY Times ridicules the Kobach/Trump illegal voter hunt, dismissing it as laughable. Except that voter rolls have already been purged by more than two million. So, who’s laughing?
