Ellison: We Need to Start Discrediting Trump's New Voter Fraud Commission Now

President Trump recently formed an Election Integrity Commission to investigate voter fraud across the country.

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), a liberal hero and deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee, said at Tuesday’s Center for American Progress Ideas summit that the commission itself is the real “fraud” and they should begin exposing it as such immediately.

DNC Chair Tom Perez is in agreement, calling the commission a “Trump propaganda factory.”

Ellison, Perez, and countless other liberals insist that voter fraud is a non-issue and that any kind of voter ID laws amount to discrimination. They ignore studies like those from the Pew Research Center which reveal rampant issues on the voter rolls. The National Review highlighted the researchers’ findings.

According to a 2012 Pew Research Center survey, one out of eight American voter registrations is inaccurate, out of date, or a duplicate. Some 2.8 million people are registered in two or more states, and 1.8 million registered voters are dead.

Guy just reported on an instance in Florida county that gives these statistics some real life perspective. Putnam County election officials were forced to purge voter rolls on Monday because illegal votes just may have tipped an election from last fall.

In other words, voter fraud is not a conspiracy.

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) provided another memorable moment from Tuesday's CAP summit, thrilling the crowd by again calling for Trump’s impeachment.
