Concord, N.H. - Tonight, President Trump announced that the sham "Presidential Committee on Election Integrity," run by Obama birther, known conspiracy-theorist and Breitbart columnist Kris Kobach, is being dissolved.

The commission paid New Hampshire a visit in September, preceded by Kobach accusing Granite Staters of voter fraud wit
Concord, N.H. - Today, Maine Secretary of State Matt Dunlap, a member of President Trump's sham Commission on Election Integrity, announced he is suing the commission. Dunlap said he hasn't heard from the commission since its last in-person meeting on September 12th at St. Anselm College's New Hampshire Institute of Politics. Dunlap says he has been blocked from receiving commission documents and believes the commission "risks becoming exactly the kind of one-sided partisan u
Manchester, N.H. - Today, Trump's sham voting commission held their second ever meeting at St. Anselm College's New Hampshire Institute of Politics. The commission considered a proposal to run registered voters through Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms' NICS gun background check system. Commission member Ken Blackwell suggested that long lines at the polls were a "good strategy." And most offensively & absurdly, the commission head, Kris Kobach, again reasserted his claim
Concord, N.H. - With the imminent arrival of Trump's sham voting commission in New Hampshire next Tuesday, Republicans in the state are under pressure to satisfy Trump's ego, wounded from losing the popular vote in the nation and in New Hampshire. New Hampshire was the first state in the Trump era to pass a voter suppression law, and did so based on Republican-created myths of voter fraud rather than on the basis of any evidence. Yesterday, New Hampshire Speaker Shawn Jasper
Concord, N.H. - Today, New Hampshire put Trump's sham Commission on Election Integrity request on hold after it was discovered that non-public voting information was included in the list the state was preparing to send over. Many of these non-public voters are domestic violence victims whose information is kept private for the sake of protection. The Trump commission request was already taken down a peg by the Hillsborough Superior Court, which told the state it could only pr

Nashua, N.H. - Today, the ACLU, Democratic Senator Bette Lasky and Republican Representative Neal Kurk settled with the state on a case that would have decided whether the Secretary of State's office was allowed to comply with the request for private and personal voter information from President Trump's Commission on Election Integrity.

Concord, N.H. – Last Friday, Governor Sununu said on MSNBC that he would “comply” with the request for personal voter information by President Trump’s Commission on Election Integrity. After signing off on the commission’s request for private data like Social Security information, New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner said he would only authorize the release of public information, forcing Governor Sununu to change his position and recommend the same. In addition to co
Concord, N.H. – Today on CNN, Governor Sununu shed crocodile tears about Trumpcare’s cuts to Medicaid, reduction in eligibility, and downshifting to states. His opposition to the Senate Trumpcare bill is contradictory to his support for a similar House version which he called a “huge win.” This sudden opposition is also in conflict with the provisions he urged Congress and the Trump administration to take up when considering a health reform bill. After the Senate Trumpcare bi
