According to Greg Palast, investigative reporter, many of the state officials that are claiming to have refused to turn over their voter rolls to Cris Kobach’s committee have already turned over those rolls. Here in Mississippi, it looks like that’s what happened:
“They can go jump in the Gulf of Mexico, and Mississippi is a great state to launch from,” responded Mississippi’s Republican Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann.
In Mississippi, Hosemann turned over the state’s entire voter rolls to Kobach, some 2,092,886 files. Each file includes voter names, last four digits of their social security numbers, voting address, and voting history.
Whenever I have checked Palast out in the past he has come out squeaky clean. My opinion of Hoseman went up when I read that he refused to turn over the rolls. Now, it’s taking a nosedive.
It looks like Hoseman has some ’splainin to do.
