Donald Trump had a plan to sneak his way into being in the White House four more years after his first term, but the country is not falling for his scheme.
On Friday, Kentucky became the 24th, and counting, state to deny Trump voter data.
Kentucky’s secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes (D) said on MSNBC, “There’s not enough bourbon here in Kentucky to make this request seem sensible. Not on my watch are we going to be releasing sensitive information that relate to the privacy of individuals.”
“Not on my watch are we going to be turning over something that’s left to the states to run – elections are left to our states under the 10th Amendment – to the federal government.”
The reason for Trump to want this kind of information is because of his constant obsession with winning. After losing the popular vote in November, Trump began saying that there were millions of illegal voters and that’s why he lost the voting.
Trump created the commission last month to investigate his assertions. That notion has been widely debunked, and critics have argued that the panel is essentially a voter suppression tool.
