Ashcroft Defends Working With Trump Voter Fraud Commission

CNN's "New Day"

Jay Ashcroft, Missouri's secretary of state, defended his decision to release information to the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, President Donald Trump's voter fraud panel.

Ashcroft said Missouri has frequent voter fraud and that he wanted to work with the commission to find out the extent of the issue. "We in Missouri regularly see instances of pretty much every conceivable type of vote fraud that you can imagine," he said Wednesday on CNN's "New Day."

"They want public information that the states have about voters ... I, as other states, we are just going to release that publicly available information that is routinely released to candidates, to news organizations, and anyone that actually makes that request," Ashcroft said.

A letter from June 28 asked for full first and last names of registered voters, addresses, dates of birth, political party affiliation, the number of elections the voter has participated in from 2006 on, and other details, according to The Washington Post.

"That's all I want, to let the voters make the decision, and that they know that their vote counts," the Missouri secretary of state said.

A Tuesday CNN survey showed that at least 44 states have announced publicly that they will not fully comply with the commission.
