Becker added, in a reference to Harri Hursti, the co-founder of Nordic Innovation Labs, who is set to deliver a presentation on the vulnerabilities of voting machines to hacking: "I also note that not only are there no minorities or women, they somehow did find space for a citizen of Finland". His assertion is based on the fact that more than 5,000 people voted in the state using out-of-state driver's licenses, which is legal, and that few of them subsequently obtained New Hampshire licenses.
"It's not the first time that Kris Kobach has mischaracterized evidence to legitimize an otherwise fraudulent claim of voter fraud", Vanita Gupta, president of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, said. The state's two senators called for him to step down, but Gardner on Tuesday gave no indication that he would.
The session comes less than week after commission co-chairman and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach charged in a column on conservative news site Breitbart that voter fraud in the Granite State may account for Democrat Maggie Hassan's extremely narrow senate victory last November over incumbent Republican Kelly Ayotte.
"That is absurd and risky", said Liz Kennedy, director of democracy and government reform for the Center for American Progress.

"Making this equation that somehow people not updating their driver's license is an indicator of voter fraud would be nearly as absurd as saying that if you have cash in your wallet, that that's proof that you robbed a bank".
"I think this commission, what it's trying to do, flies in the face of what this country is all about", said Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer, New YorkDemocrat. Congress should conduct vigorous oversight of the commission's efforts, which are an affront to our democracy. "There might be a consensus, that's my hope".
"There is utterly no connectivity between motor vehicle law and election law", Dunlap said. The first meeting focused on honing the commission's mission and the issues it would tackle. The entire enterprise was built on a falsehood - Mr. Trump's claim that millions of noncitizens voted in the election, a whopper so enormous and so often debunked that its continued circulation, particularly among Trump supporters, raises serious doubts about whether mere fact-checking and truth-telling can ever penetrate such a closely-held, hyper-partisan belief. And some recent attempts to require that voters show certain types of IDs at polls have been rejected by lower courts as unconstitutional, raising questions about the legality of Lott's proposal.
Some, particularly Democrats, have been critical of the commission, claiming that the President formed it to bolster his claims that if not for voter fraud he would have won the popular vote during November's general election. And, just like that, Kobach's air-tight case starts to evaporate. Indeed, the commission could use the data to create a national voter database for the first time in US history, and it could be used to unlawfully purge voters with identical names and birth dates. The panel is to issue a report on their findings in the next year.
In their second meeting, starting today at 10:00am, the Commission will feature a panel of speakers from the rogue's gallery of voter suppression - including several from Virginia. When he won the electoral vote but lost the popular vote by almost 3 million votes, he claimed he would have won that, too, "if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally".
"The other way to look at that is that he told a really big lie, the biggest lie", Kander noted. "This is a political strategy".
Also in the mix are forceful objections such as the one from Robb Paulak, who identified himself as a veteran, teacher and USA citizen, and told commissioners they were on a "witch hunt".
