ST. LOUIS (KTRS) Officials with Missouri’s secretary of state’s office say there’s a lot of interest in Secretary Jay Ashcroft’s decision to give some voter registration information to the President’s voter fraud commission. Ashcroft’s spokeswoman, Maura Browning says his office received “literally hundreds of calls” about the issue this week.
Ashcroft says he thinks there’s a lot of confusion over what his office is doing … and that this complicates the issue:
Many callers to Ashcroft’s office are concerned the commission will get their Social Security number and voting history. But spokeswoman Browning says Missouri will provide only information showing that the voter participated in an election, not how they voted.
