Maryland Attorney General: Won't Indulge Trump's Voter Fraud 'Fantasy'
Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh took on President Trump Monday when he refused to comply with voter information requests made by the White House's voter integrity commission.
"I find this request for the personal information of millions of Marylanders repugnant," Frosh said in a scathing statement. "It appears designed only to intimidate voters and to indulge President Trump's fantasy that he won the popular vote."
The commission asked all states plus Washington, D.C. for information such as voting history, dates of birth, and the last four digits of voters' social security numbers.
The Maryland attorney general stated that the requests conflict with state law. Some states have taken a similar tack, saying that the requests and intended publishing of it are inappropriate.
The president pushed back on the reluctant states Saturday.
Numerous states are refusing to give information to the very distinguished VOTER FRAUD PANEL. What are they trying to hide?

This is not the first time Frosh has challenged the president. Last month he and the District of Columbia's attorney general sued Trump, arguing that his business engagements conflicted with his office of president.
