Andrew Gumbel – Trump’s Bogus Voter Fraud Commission



On July 3 Ian spoke with Andrew Gumbel, an award-winning investigative reporter and author of “Down For the Count: Dirty Elections and the Rotten History of Democracy in America”. They discussed the bogus commission that Donald Trump has set up chaired by Vice President Mike Pence and Kris Kobach, the Kansas Secretary of State who is the country’s leading crusader against the imaginary scourge of voter fraud. Needless to say, Trump’s commission which is not looking into the role of the Russian hacking of our election but is comprised of voter-suppression zealots, will be using the specter of voter fraud to deny the votes of minorities who vote Democratic as has already happened in Kobach’s Kansas. We also look into why the majority of the nation’s Secretaries of State have rejected the commission’s demand for personal data on voter’s voting habits, partial social security numbers and other personal data which will be housed on an unsecured website.
