Judicial Watch sent a “notice of violation” letter to California and 11 local jurisdictions in the state threatening to sue in federal court if they don’t clean their voter registration lists. For example, it said Los Angeles had 112 percent voter registration based on eligible voting population, San Diego had 138 percent, and San Francisco had 114 percent.
A spokesman from the California secretary of state’s office did not respond to phone and email inquiries Tuesday from The Daily Signal.
In June, California Secretary of State Alex Padilla, a Democrat, refused to provide voter lists to the commission, saying:
I will not provide sensitive voter information to a commission that has already inaccurately passed judgment that millions of Californians voted illegally. California’s participation would only serve to legitimize the false and already debunked claims of massive voter fraud made by the president, the vice president, and Mr. Kobach.
Judicial Watch sent similar letters to election officials in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, and Tennessee.
