RT America: White House voter commission doxxes Americans by revealing emails & addresses

Williams' nine-page response to President Donald Trump's election integrity commission includes several recommendations to improve elections and suggests that it look elsewhere in its mission to uncover wrongdoing.

"I mean, what are they trying to hide if they don't want a presidential advisory commission to study their state voter rolls?" he asked.

Which probably counts as irony on some level, given that numerous messages ran along the lines of, "As a private citizen I must tell you that your request for voting information from the states is completely inappropriate". Some include personal addresses, small business contact data, or phone numbers.

"While this data may serve a goal", Williams wrote in his letter to the commission Friday, "a single request for data that lacks the non-public data necessary to accurately match voters across states can't be used to effectively assess the accuracy of voter rolls".

But New Mexico law only allows voter information to be provided for governmental or political purposes.

Citizens voicing complaints about the White House's election integrity commission's request for voter data might be surprised that their information has been made available via the White House web site.

Two killed in Egypt beach stabbing
It was the first major attack on foreign tourists in more than a year as Egypt struggles to revive its tourism industry. The interior ministry said in a statement that the attacker, who had swum ashore, was arrested and was being questioned.

"This request is very concerning", wrote one.

Election and data experts around the country know that the type of data states can publicly provide would not allow the commission to draw meaningful conclusions about whether any votes were cast illegally.

This appears to be a completely unredacted dump of every message - positive or negative, with no editing - sent to the email address the commission requested that secretaries of state use, which also seems to serve as its email address for public comment.

"You will open up the entire voting population to a massive amount of fraud if this data is in any way released", wrote one voter.

Others pointed to alleged voter fraud taking place by Republicans, and many accused the president of focusing on voter fraud because of personal slight that Trump did not win the popular vote.

My great worry is that this commission is really a Trojan horse meant to spur additional voter suppression efforts at all levels of government.
