Officials fear Kobach's voting fraud panel could create an easy target for hackers

But it doesn't degrade the findings of the original study as published.

Not social security numbers.

Much was made about Kobach not wanting to give the list to the commission with the SSN.

No Steve.

The study I cite was about the 2008 election, and published in 2014.

The snopes crap you refer to is about projecting Richmans previous data from 2008 to the 2016 election.

Clinton is obviously not even mentioned in the journal published data.

Editorial: Education plan is promising

I am very well aware these schools are prototypes.

If you had followed it, you would realize that school districts applied with proposals. These districts were selected.

Again, did 497 submit a proposal to participate ?

The article and discussion is about voter fraud.

You are trying to change the subject to turnout. This, because of low voter partipation in the Lawrence primary for city commission.

Nice try.

In 2008 Obama gave the liberal activist group ACORN $800,000 for a voter registration drive.

That year, in Lake County, Indiana, ACORN turned in 5000 new registrations the day before the deadline. After it was discovered the first 2100 of them were phony, the country quit processing the rest. It was first discovered when an election worker saw a dead friend registering to vote. Jimmy John also registered with a store address. From CNN Oct 10, 2008.

In Nevada, again in 2008, ACORN had submitted thousands of phony voter registrations at the last minute. It was discovered when someone in the elections office noticed that the Dallas Cowboys football players had registered to vote in the state. The state director was fined $5,000 and given a two year suspended sentence.

Researchers from Old Dominion University ( 26,000 students) and George Mason University (37,000) did an exhaustive study on elections.

Richman et al. published their extensive findings “Do non citizens vote in U.S. Elections ?” in the journal Electoral Studies, 36 (2014).

Among other things from the data intensive paper, they estimate a minimum of 620,000 non citizens illegally registered to vote in 2008.

Further, they estimate a statistical minimum of 38,000 to a maximum of 2.8 million non-citizens actually voted in the 2008 election. Those would have all been illegal votes.

They wrote, “Non-citizen votes likely gave Senate Democrats the pivotal 60th vote needed to overcome filibusters in order to pass health care reform and other Obama administration priorities in the 111th Congress”

Editorial: Education plan is promising

What makes this potential restructuring of public education is the fact that it is a program that comes from the bottom up.

There are no mandates from the government being passed down.

An Olathe teacher was on TV news last night excitedly discussing the program. She said she has many ideas to present.

That said, the LJW should report if 497 submitted a proposal to participate in this truly innovative program. If they didnt, why not ?

Voter databases are already public information.

You can get the entire state list on CDROM for $200. Just fill out a CVR form

The data can also be specified to the precinct level.

Where do you think candidates get names and addresses for their mailings?
