Idaho reviewing request for voter data from Trump commission

Here’s a news item from the Associated Press: BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The Idaho Secretary of State office is reviewing a request for key points of voter data from President Donald Trump's commission investigating alleged voter fraud in the 2016 election. State Election Director Betsie Kimbrough said Friday that Secretary of State Lawerence Denney received the request from the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity earlier this week. According to the letter, secretaries of state have roughly two weeks to hand over voter information, such as dates of birth, the last four digits of voters' Social Security numbers and any information about felony convictions and military status. Trump lost the popular vote to Democrat Hillary Clinton but has alleged, without evidence, that 3 to 5 million people voted illegally. Kimbrough says the office will fulfill the request if Denney determines it complies with state public records law.
