Top ACLU Voting Rights Lawyer Rips Into Trump Expertís Evidence Of Kansas Voter Fraud
Huffpost ^ | 3/10/18 | Sam Levine

Posted on 03/10/2018 7:43:52 AM PST by DoodleDawg

The ACLU’s top voting rights lawyer faced down one of President Donald Trump’s voter fraud commissioners in court on Friday, getting him to concede that he had shaky evidence of significant voter fraud in Kansas.

The exchange came on the fourth day of a trial over a Kansas law that requires residents to prove they are U.S. citizens when they register to vote. Several residents who were not allowed to vote in the 2016 election are being represented by the American Civil Liberties Union in the suit against Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach (R).

Dale Ho, director of the ACLU’s voting rights project, questioned Hans von Spakovsky, a former Justice Department official and member of the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, who is one of the most prominent people arguing that noncitizen voter registration is a substantial issue. Several studies and investigations have shown it is not.

The back-and-forth between the two men in U.S. District Court ostensibly was about Kansas law (von Spakovsky is serving as an expert witness for Kobach). But Ho’s cross-examination had deeper significance in the national debate over voting restrictions because he was able to show that allegations of widespread voter fraud can often be based on incomplete information derived using unscientific methods.

Since the Judge was asking the witness questions then I suspect this is a bench trial rather than a jury trial. Regardless, I hope that Kobach has more to go on than this witness. He apparently didn't do that well in court.

How about exposing the voter fraud in California which, I hear, was massive thanks to RAT vermin hiding everywhere under their rocks in CA hugging their illegals.

He didn’t do well according to a left wing Huffington Post reporter. . .

>>Von Spakovsky admitted that he was not aware of a single election in which noncitizen votes determined the outcome.

That’s like saying sex with a minor isn’t a big deal if she didn’t get pregnant.

Illegal voting is illegal. F the corrupt AF ACLU and the HuffPoo for trying to muddy the waters and make excuses.

3 million illegal votes in California in 2016 didn’t change the outcome of the presidential election so it’s all okay according to the Communist ACLU.

Evidence of voter fraud is deliberately and actively suppressed by some states. Then they publicly deny it exists.

It’s not widespread. All you need to flip a state is a few key precincts and presto chango - BLUE! And the numbers are small; 2-3 precincts in PA, another 2-3 in OH, etc., usually the large urban areas. The pattern is the same; the urban areas report last, when they know how many votes they need to put their candidate over the top. Get a better lawyer!

Legal voting is the bane of the radical, criminal leftists.

This is on the Kansas voting law. If Kobach wins this one then that might be useful in other states.

Exactly. That question and answer are misleading. The fact that I don’t know of an election that was thrown doesn’t prove anything. But I can prove the law was deliberately broken and here is the fraud. Let’s get Obama’s felon friend Bob Creamer in the dock. He admitted it.

In the Podesta emails, Podesta himself expressed concerned that the Colorado vote was fraudulently thrown by Obama, in 2008 primary.

The only way the democrats win anything is through voter fraud.

The question shouldn’t be “does evidence of voter fraud justify the law?” That is a political question outside the jurisdiction of any court.

The question should be, “does proof of citizenship” violate KS or US Constitution?

Uh, no.

ACLU, bugger off.

If only an inconsequential, miniscule number of illegal aliens illegally vote, why does the ACLU care if the KS law prevents them from voting?

If I tried to rob a bank, but didn't manage to get away with anything, that makes all right, all right?

If I caught one Democrat bringing a busload of out of state voters, and have him on tape admitting it, matched with video tape at the voting site, then I have proved voter fraud.

It is impossible to know how much they have done, how much of the voter fraud they committed. They could have thrown many elections, but more data is required, the fact is that a crime has been committed.
