Barna finds disturbing 'pro-choice pattern' among Millennials
It's been said that many, if not most Millennials are pro-life. But a respected Christian researcher says that's not the case – that in fact, "we are tying our hope to a myth."
A legal scholar and member of the now-dissolved Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity contends the work of the group was sabotaged by partisan anti-Trumpers and their host of frivolous lawsuits.
In May 2017 President Trump signed the executive order creating the Commission chaired by Vice President Mike Pence. It was tasked to investigate ways to improve confidence in the electoral system and to investigate "vulnerabilities in voting systems and practices used for Federal elections that could lead to improper voter registrations and improper voting, including fraudulent voter registrations and fraudulent voting."
But last week Trump dissolved the Commission, which was dogged by many state election officials who flatly refused to give the Commission the voter registration and voter history data it requested. And "a swarm of meritless lawsuits," filed by progressive groups, also "hobbled" its efforts, according to Hans von Spakovsky, a member of the now defunct Commission.
Von Spakovsky serves as senior legal fellow at The Heritage Foundation. During an interview Thursday on American Family Radio, he explained that a leaked memo from a left-wing advocacy group was quite revealing.
"It talked about how Democrats had to get amnesty and citizenship for DREAMers. Why? It was a political necessity because they need the votes of those illegal aliens – once they become citizens – to retain power," he says, answering his own question.
"That, I think, explains what was going on with our Commission, because one of things we were concentrating on is the fact that we know there are non-citizens registering and voting all over the country."
Von Spakovsky said it's very clear the Left doesn't want this to get out. "They want non-citizens registering and voting because they think it will help them win elections," he stated.
In an article for the Washington Examiner, the senior legal fellow argues there are only two possible explanations why state officials denied the Commission's request for voter registration and voter history data: "[E]ither they were part of the partisan 'resist-Trump-at-any-costs movement,' or they were afraid of what we might find."
And according to von Spakovsky, the strategy behind the "flood-the-zone legal offensive" was effective, forcing the Commission's staff to devote all their time to responding to the lawsuits, "thereby sabotaging [our] ability to function."
