Voter fraud commission may have violated law

BY LYDIA WHEELER AND MIKE LILLIS - 07/05/17 06:07 PM EDT

President Trumpís voter fraud commission may have violated the law by ignoring federal requirements governing requests for information from states.

The Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity asked all 50 states for extensive information last week on their voters, including full names and addresses, political party registration and the last four digits of Social Security numbers.

Under the Paperwork Reduction Act, information requests from agencies and other federal entities are supposed to first be submitted to the Office of Management and Budgetís Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA).

This 1980 law requires federal agencies to seek public input, including through a comment period, before a request for information. A 1995 amendment extended OIRAís authority to include not only requests for information for the government, but also requests for information to the public.

The law also requires that agencies justify their requests for public information, specify how it will be used and provide assurances that data will be protected. The law also obliges the agencies to estimate how many hours it will take entities to respond.

4. Running Tally of Laws Potentially Broken by Pence-Kobach Commission, or By Commissioners

I follow a couple of law blogs and I found this to be amusing http://electionlawblog.org/?p=93592

Hatch Act (Kobach only) (Kobach also sanctioned for misleading court on voting info, but not as part of commission)
Federal Advisory Commissions Act
Paperwork Reduction Act
Federal privacy laws (Judge Kollar-Kotelly wants response, including knowing who is on Commission) (Chris Geidner with pleadings)
More to come?

This list will be update
