TNDP Chair Statement on the Trump Administration Request for Voter Information

Trump’s voter fraud commission is the real fraud

Nashville, Tenn. (June 30, 2017) – Mary Mancini, chair of the Tennessee Democratic Party, released the following statement on the Trump administration’s request for voter information:

“The only fraud that is occurring is the fraudulent commission being led by Vice President Pence and Sec. Kobach. Sec. Kobach has a disgusting history of perpetuating the myth of voter fraud as an excuse to purge legitimate voters from the rolls or to prevent them from registering in Kansas.  President Trump is trying to extend this tactic to the whole country. This is not unique to Donald Trump, this is a continuation of the systemic suppression of minority voters led by Republicans happening all over the country, including right here in Tennessee.”
