Here’s a story you might have missed with all the hubbub around impeachment, Silent Sham, and redistricting.
Some of you might recall Interstate Crosscheck, the program touted by then-Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach to ferret out so-called voter fraud. The basic idea was that Kobach convinced several states to send him voter data, which his crack Kansas team would comb through for duplicates, showing people voting more than once in different states.
In 2014, then Speaker of the NC House Thom Tillis raised all kinds of alarms about voter fraud and pushed the state to send it’s voter data to Kansas for Kobach’s effort.
Turns out Interstate Crosscheck has been shut down, settling a lawsuit by the ACLU of Kansas. Besides using completely inept and bogus methodology, the voter data was stored on insecure servers and had other security vulnerabilities.
