Donald Trump has appointed election attorney J. Christian Adams, a champion of keeping voters real, to head his Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity.
Adams attained notoriety when he resigned in 2010 from his post at the Department of Justice in protest over the Obama administration’s mishandling of the 2008 New Black Panther voter intimidation case.
The case involved two men who stood outside a polling place in Philadelphia wearing military-type uniforms and intimidating white voters with racial slurs and a night stick.
Adams accused Obama’s Department of Justice of bias against white victims and said that they were unwilling to prosecute minorities for civil rights violations after then-AG Eric Holder dismissed the charges.
A board member of the conservative American Civil Rights Union, Adams has led lawsuits against jurisdictions with large minority populations in an effort to force the purging of illegal voters.
He considers automatic voter registration to be a partisan vehicle for fraud, having observed, “Voter registration takes forethought and initiative, something lacking in large segments of the Democrat base.”
Adams’ book, titled, “Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department,” describes “how the DOJ has repeatedly sided with political bosses who flagrantly disenfranchise entire communities of white voters.”
The investigation’s efforts have been thwarted by strident opposition from state election officials.
Vice-President Mike Pence heads up the commission with help from vice-chairman, Kris Kobach, a long-time voter ID advocate who has stated that U.S. elections are infected with illegal ballots cast by illegal aliens. Kobach has been Kansas’ secretary of state since 2011.
The American Civil Liberties Union has filed a lawsuit against the commission, to which Alan Lamar King, an Alabama probate court judge, was also named on Monday.
