Maryland Official Resigns from Trump's Voter Fraud Commission

Luis Borunda, Maryland's Deputy Secretary of State, has Resigned from President Trump's Controversial Panel that is looking into possible Voter Fraud in the 2016 Presidential Election, the Baltimore Sun reported Monday.

Borunda reportedly told Gov. Larry Hogan (R) that he has Resigned from the Trump Administration's Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, the Governor's Spokesman Doug Mayer told the Paper. "He informed our office he has resigned from the commission," Mayer said.

In May, Trump created the Panel in an Executive Order after making the Baseless Claim that millions of People cast Illegal Votes for Hillary Clinton, his Democratic Opponent. The Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity sent Letters last week to the 50 Secretaries of State across the Country requesting Information about Voters dating back to 2006.

The Commission's Vice-Chair, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach (R), has asked for Data on all Registered Voters, including:

- Names
- Address
- Birth Dates
- Last Four Digits of Social Security Numbers
- Political Party Affiliations if available
- Records of Elections in which they participated, Voting Histories of all Voters
- Military Status
- Felony Convictions

Borunda joined the President's Commission "on his own," and the Governor did not Appoint him to the Post. The announcement of his Role on the Panel raised some eyebrows because Maryland's Secretary of State Office, unlike some other States, has no hand in Dealing with Registering Voters or Overseeing the Election.

In a Letter to Kobach, the Maryland State Administrator of Elections declined to Fulfill the Request from the Commission.
