Last week, the Secretary of State of Kansas and vice-chairman of Donald Trump’s Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, Kris Kobach, penned a snide little article for Dead Breitbart in which he claimed to have finally hit pay dirt on his quest for said voter fraud. Surprise! It was in New Hampshire!

For years, the mainstream media has ignored the problem of voter fraud and belittled those of us who are trying to do something about it. And when secretaries of state like me identify cases of fraud, we are told that the number of incidents of voter fraud is too insignificant to matter.

Now, however, facts have come to light that indicate that a pivotal, close election was likely changed through voter fraud on November 8, 2016: New Hampshire’s U.S. Senate Seat, and perhaps also New Hampshire’s four electoral college votes in the presidential election.

Whoa, if true. Now all the mainstream media will probably have to get together and issue an official apology to Kris Kobach that reads something like, “We, the mainstream media, are heartily sorry for having offended thee, Kris Kobach, and we detest all of our sins, like having suggested that your quest for ‘voter fraud’ is stupid and delusional and probably racist.”

What is this evidence, you ask?

Well, first…

According to statistics released by the Speaker of the New Hampshire House of Representatives, on the date of the general election in November 2016, there were 6,540 same-day registrants who registered to vote in New Hampshire using an out-of-state driver’s license to prove their identity.

Now, Kobach admits that this, in and of itself, is not proof of fraud, because people who move to New Hampshire have 60 days to get a New Hampshire driver’s license if they want to drive there. However, he then goes on to explain that out of those 6,540 people 5,526 had not yet obtained a New Hampshire driver’s license. And out of those people, “only 213 registered a vehicle in New Hampshire.”

Therefore, by Kobach logic, 5,313 of those voters were FAKE VOTERS bussed in from Massachusetts, probably, to vote for Democrats, stealing the state that rightfully belonged to Donald Trump and Kelly Ayotte.

5,513 is a big number – more than enough to swing two very important elections. The closest major election was the contest between incumbent Republican U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte and challenger Maggie Hassan (D). Hassan won the election by a razor-thin margin of 1,017 votes. Those 5,313 fraudulent votes were more than enough to swing the election. If 59.2 percent or more of them went for Hassan, then the election was stolen through voter fraud. That’s likely, since the surrounding states are Democrat strongholds.

It’s also possible that New Hampshire’s four electoral college votes were swung to Hillary Clinton through illegal voting by nonresidents. Clinton won New Hampshire by only 2,732 votes. If 74.8 percent of the 5,513 fraudulent votes were cast for Clinton, then the presidential election in New Hampshire was tipped as well.

This was especially serious, he notes, because Ayotte’s vote would have allowed Republicans to repeal Obamacare, as they had so hoped to do.

Unfortunately for Kobach, the mainstream media did not bend the knee, nor did they say an act of contrition for having doubted Kobach’s belief in widespread voter fraud. In fact, they did the opposite!

Because you see, those cold-as-ice mainstream media folks at The New York Times and the Washington Post figured out the flaw in Kobach’s theory — people who don’t drive, and also, the bane of conservative existence… college students.

Via The New York Times:

Busted, right? Not quite. In his hunger to expose fraudulent voters, Mr. Kobach omitted a few important details. New Hampshire law does not require people to be “residents” to register and vote. They must only be “domiciled” in the state, meaning that New Hampshire is where they currently live and spend most of their time — a description that applies, incidentally, to many college students. In 2016, the towns with the highest rates of voters who registered using out-of-state IDs were all home to college campuses.

Mr. Kobach didn’t say whether he had attempted to contact any of the supposed scofflaws, but The Washington Post did. The first four it reached identified themselves as college students who lived in New Hampshire last November.

WHOOPSIE DAISY! That is a pretty big thing to forget about. I almost feel bad for Kris Kobach, who probably really and truly thought he had found proof that people were doing voter fraud to New Hampshire, and really and truly thought that he had finally gotten the best of the mainstream media.

Still, I’m gonna have to point out here that these students were still voting with IDs. Yeah! There was voter ID in New Hampshire this election. Meaning that by Kobach’s own theory, the thing that was supposed to prevent all the imaginary voter fraud did not actually accomplish that. There was still lots of imaginary voter fraud, even with the voter ID system. Essentially, the only way Kris Kobach would be convinced that voter fraud did not exist on the widespread scale he believes it does is for everyone to vote Republican. He will accept nothing less.

As The Washington Post’s Phillip Bump explains, Kobach’s failure to figure out the whole college student thing, or even do the work of calling up someone in New Hampshire to actually get the data on those out-of-state-ID-havers (or even Googled hard enough to find a study on them that New Hampshire Public Radio did back in February), should really disqualify him from the voter fraud commission:

Kobach’s past behavior and other recent comments have suggested he’s inappropriate for his Trump-appointed role; this Breitbart essay makes that more clear. Incidentally, it was revealed recently that Kobach is compensated for his work at the conservative site. As a paid columnist, the logical leaps of that piece are questionable, much less as one of the two guys running an ostensibly objective look at if there is fraud in the system.

Clearly, Kobach is biased in this regard. Clearly, he desperately wants there to be voter fraud, because it’s easier for him to believe in widespread voter fraud than in thousands of college students in New Hampshire not voting Republican.

Kobach ends his Breitbart article by stating “But the mainstream media will tell us, ‘Move along, there’s nothing to see here.'” He is wrong about that, too. No one told anyone to move along, they simply proved that there was nothing to see there, other than a paranoid Republican from Kansas being very bad at interpreting data and forgetting that people go to college.

      They puke in the parking lot behind my house, the bastards. So lovely to live in a college town…

      But I’ll say this: when push comes to shove, drinking or not, those students rise up for the right stuff. Here in Eugene, we’ve had wonderful turnout for the Women’s March on Jan 22, for the other planned and “emergency” ralleys against The New Cruelty, and much of it has been followed up by action on campus and off.

      So, a little puking? I’ll keep bitching, but I’ll also keep appreciating the work that many of them do around here.

      • Arolpin

        Well, they used to have those, and in many cases they let you drink underage (technically they just accepted a College ID as proof of age, but it didn’t have age or birth date on it anywhere). Then, as part of the crackdown on DUIs, the feds under St. Ronnie the Senile, the Feds threatened to withhold federal money from any college that didn’t enforce a 21-year-old drinking age, which closed down most of the actual on-campus bars. Fucking Zombie Reagan is STILL fucking us over.

            The Washington University campus bar accepted not only student IDs, but also guest passes as proof of legal drinking age. We used to love taking visiting younger siblings for their first beer at a bar. I brought a friend’s 13-year old sister one time.
            The only rule was you couldn’t use your meal card for booze, only for food and non-alcoholic beverages. Then they realized that they could charge $10 for a refillable cup on your meal card, and $0.25 cash for a refill, and they sold a LOT. Especially near the end of the year when people had excess money left on their meal plan.

    I don’t know enough about this- do many states require you to prove your ID in order to register to vote? And do you then need to prove who you are at the polling station? Doesn’t that negate the secrecy of the ballot?

    Because I live overseas I have a postal vote, the local electoral commission has my signature so that when I send in my vote they can check the outer envelope against their records to check for fraud. But if I were to vote in person, I could just rock up to the polling station, tell the them my name and get my ballot. I don’t need to prove who I am.

    And when I apply for a vote, I don’t need any ID to do that, I just have to sign a form to say that I have the right to vote. I didn’t need any proof when I applied for a postal vote- my signature just has to match the one I sent in when I applied.

    Is this really as simple a thing in th USA as stopping minority groups from voting?

    • OneYieldRegular

      Yes.

    • Serai 1

      Registering your name doesn’t negate the secrecy since it only records that you showed up. It doesn’t record how you voted, and it doesn’t even record that you actually did pull the lever or punch the card. Just that you showed up. Until voting at all becomes a crime, your vote is still secret.

      • Teecha

        Fair enough.

    The Bretibarters will say that college students don’t deserve the right to vote anyway because they are brainwashed from librul socialist professors.

    Really though, disenfranchising college students from voting is all a part of the Republican long game. Haven’t they floated the idea of making you show an ID from the state you are voting in, knowing college students won’t go get new IDs if their home address is out of state?

    • Teecha

      Surely the answer to that is that students use their ID card that they are issued by the college?

      The first ever ID card was the one I got at uni. It was the one which let me at the library and photocopier! And got me my 10% NUS discount all over the place.

    Republicans only want white suburban men who drive to vote. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e2ef3f9c9eab2c1913a9932c32a006e81075d8235b5daae06b02f6d2816008fe.jpg

  • These are the same assholes who want to prevent students from using a college ID for voting while allowing concealed carry permits. Everything they do is partisan.

  • Indiepalin

    An in-depth analysis of these 5,513 illicit voters showed that all of them voted for Hillary Clinton. Every last one.

  • Clearly we need to put a picture of the Vice President up at polling places with the caption: You must be this old and this white to vote.

  • GHERKINS OF RESTIVENESS!

    You can’t let unpersons like that vote! They haven’t been exposed to a brazillian hours of FOX programming, and will probably go and do things like “choose the best candidate” or “look at the issues” instead of “I gon vote for wut that Steev Doocy guy said”

    • Bobathonic

      Oh, and brazillion hours are soooo much longer than, say, newyorkan hours. Pretty much like hawaiian hours.

      • 🛶🗣️ Mr Canoehead 🛶🗣️

        How many New York minutes in a Brazilian hour?

    Want to solve voter fraud? Take the laws about Federal elections out of the state’s hands.

    • Invisible Bunyip

      Put control of district boundaries into the hands of an independent commission.

      • Résistance Land Shark Ω

        That’ll work for me.

        • Invisible Bunyip

          It has it’s downsides. We have a total lack of interestingly shaped voting districts.

          This is Melbourne, with about 4 million people. The one crazy line in the upper right is a river.

          • Dang. That looks like it does NOT take you 45 minutes just to drive to a polling place.
            I am a little Jealous.

          • Invisible Bunyip

            Well, not in a suburban district. We have some ‘Outback’ districts that take days to cross, but the people there can use postal voting.

            Personally I usually walk across the street to the local high school.

          • Résistance Land Shark Ω

            Wait … you have a district named “Batman”? How cool is that?

          • Invisible Bunyip

            Sorry, different Batman. in 1830-something John Batman landed on the bank of the river and declared: “This looks like the place for a village.” Given the current population, it’s one heck of a village.

    • Robert James Nugent

      He has managed to bust a handful of elderly Republicans in Kansas for voting in Kansas and in their vacation home states. So, more power to him.

  • Bitter Scribe

    Everyone knows that college students shouldn’t be allowed to vote because they…uh…drink too much beer or something.

    • phoenix00

      They’re also usually liberal. Especially colored ones.

  • whitroth

    Has he gotten hold of any of these people, and checked whether they voted in any other state?

    • Opalescent Riddles

      I think it’s more a matter of not wanting to actually ask the questions whose answers he might not like. Better to just assume and insinuate.

      Like for instance, how much of an asshole do you have to be to conclude any malfeasance on the part of someone who gets a driver’s licence but does not register a vehicle? Where he comes from, does every of-age member of a household own a car and register (and insure) it in their own name? Please!

  • Jack Had A Permit

    I’m certain some voter fraud exists. What’s my proof? Kobach got elected. Case closed.

    • Professor Fate

      It’s quite possible there was fraud in the Presidential election but it’s more likely the fraud was in the counting of the votes not who was casting them.

      • Jack Had A Permit

        Well, that goes without saying.

        • SDGeoff3

          Thank you.

  • bbayliss

    Own a car? You can vote.

    • SayItWithWookies

      We are a “one car, one vote” democracy. This is why Republicans so dearly want Jay Leno to run for office.

  • therblig

    what’s really disgusting is that in a country with 200 million registered voters, “5,513 is a big number – more than enough to swing two very important elections”, even in the granite state, where there are over 566,000 registered voters.

    election day should be a national holiday, and voting should be mandatory with yakuza-like finger cutting penalties for not voting.

    ok, maybe big fines.

    or points on your license.

    or tweets shaming you.

    ok, righteous indignation if you criticize the government you didn’t bother to turn out to vote for/against.

    • Invisible Bunyip

      In Australia you are fined for not voting. But first they make it as easy as possible to vote, with polling all day on a Saturday, mobile booths to places like hospitals, and access to postal voting.

      • We will never have that there. For pretend it is for “Freedumbs”
        For real, it is because if everyone voted, these someabitches would be in serious trouble.

        • mailman27

          Those someabitches would be a bad memory. Almost all their policy ideas are massively unpopular.

    • Banrion

      While I knee-jerk agree with you, forcing uninterested & unengaged citizens to vote is more likely to result in another Trump. The forced votes will go to the candidate that entertains them more or makes them feel better about themselves. Mandatory voting alone will not result in better elections.

    So 6,540 registered with an out of state license. And 5,526 did not have an in state license. And 213 of those weighed as much as a duck. But 5,513 could float. VOTER FRAUD!!!1!. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/ee574c9e5b799c11bc8077dcdd82571aa3b82200121055090f70e2d749385804.jpg

  • SayItWithWookies

    “Those 5,313 fraudulent votes…”
    Wow — Kobach saw enough evidence to already determine they were fraudulent. He may never walk through the eye of a needle, but his blinders are narrow enough to make him think that’s what he’s doing.

    • Rebel Scum with permit

      This is his last, best chance to take his voter suppression show nationwide.

    • phoenix00

      No it’s deliberate. Throw enough wrenches into the electoral system and it’s discounted, debased, and marginalized.

      Yet another “unnecessary” democratic right weakened in the name of authoritarian purity.

  • Blackest Noobs

    this is what is wrong with the wealthy white conservative….they only seek the answer that fits their narrative….voter fraud…of course this is voter fraud…all done…nothing further to examine.

    see, scientists don’t do that shit….they go ooh i got these results…hmmm why? let’s do the experiment again…and again…and again…and then for good measure, let’s write a paper on it, and see if other scientists come up with the same results.

    that’s how you do research….don’t be a white wealthy conservative…they research poorly.

  • Poly_Ester

    In Kobach’s defense — Thinking is Hard.

    • phoenix00

      Not when it comes to spinning authoritarian narratives, it would seem.

      • Poly_Ester

        authoritarian narratives don’t need to be based on reality. Its more simple that way and requires less thought.

        • phoenix00

          It’s an easily-imagined idealized alternative reality. “Vote for me and it’s your’s.”

  • The Librarian

    Kobach gets my fraudulent vote for being the biggest fraud there is: a Secretary of State who chases voting ghosts who don’t appear to anyone but him. Time to step down and get some help, dude.

  • Does not matter. We can prove it a hundred times over, and in fact, we have.
    All the right is going to hear is “Look, FRAUD!!!!!!” And then neener neener for her to forever.
    I say call for very expensive tax payer funded investigations, right here and now. Lay it all open on the table. Make sure the American People know the price tag every step of the way.

    • Johnny Appleseed

  • Sy Colepath

    “There was voter ID in New Hampshire this election.”

    Grasping irony is not a trait of the stupid, or Republicans, for that matter.

  • Delu

    Kobach’s article shows clearly that “voter fraud” is pretty much a made up issue by the Trumpians.

    Either to make their own voters scared of those “illegal messicans” or to suppress voting for ACTUAL Americans who to them are not Americans because they don’t vote Trumpian.

    Or both.

  • Ya know after this clown has destroyed his political career by committing structural and institutional violence to the general American public, he probably could partner with David Nunes in a detective agency. Maybe they could solve the Case of the Missing Hurricane Damage at Mar-a-Lago, so we’d finally find out what exactly was damaged that cost $17 million dollars in insurance claims.

    I’ll get the mop and clean up all the sarcasm that has dripped off my ass now. I should open an agency…

  • Ami

    RepubliKKKlans believe college students should only vote in the state district where they are from ( or not at all.) RepubliKKKlan voter suppression against ALL Americans that historically vote Democrat has been rampant in Red states, like Texas, for years. Laws have been passed against college students, minorities, poor who dont own a car, Seniors who don’t drive or don’t have a birth certificate any more and women whose name changed due to marriage/divorce, making it harder for these groups to vote. They know they can’t win honestly, the numbers are against them. So RepubliKKKlans change the rules to mame it harder for people to vote.

  • Jeff Mc Donald

    Perhaps the Repubs are starting to remember that saying by the most intelligent, and articulate conservative President in history? How did it go? Something about, “fool me once, I’m just a fool for love”?
