You might remember this. A few years ago, Republicans tried to investigate state governments to see if voter fraud was an issue. They were blocked by a bunch of law suits. President Trump took up the case. He was also blocked by lawsuits. States like California prevented any such investigation. Their claim was that they had a responsibility to protect the identities of their voter base, and handing voter rolls over to the government would somehow violate that duty. We all rolled our eyes, but this is how it happened.
You know this argument was ridiculous, but you’re probably underestimating how bad it really is. California isn’t just making up excuses. They’re making that classic leftist play where they accuse everyone else of committing their crimes.
That’s right. California has violated privacy protection rights. The state’s DMV has been selling personal information to the tune of millions of dollars. That information is used by private companies for ad targeting and all manner of other issues. Even while the FTC is coming down on Google for violating privacy, the state of California is one of the worst offenders.
Does this mean we can finally green light voter fraud investigations? Of course not. So, while you’re frustrated by all of this, you might want to learn how California is violating rights — especially if you live there. You’ll find it all in the video.
