Trump voting commission bought Texas election data flagging Hispanic voters

President Trump’s voting commission asked every state and the District for detailed voter registration data, but in Texas’s case it took an additional step: It asked to see Texas records that identify all voters with Hispanic surnames, newly released documents show.

In buying nearly 50 million records from the state with the nation’s second largest Hispanic population, a researcher for the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity checked a box on two Texas public voter data request forms explicitly asking for the “Hispanic surname flag notation,” to be included in information sent to the voting commission, according to copies of the signed and notarized state forms.
It didn't happen because of a lawsuit by Texas voting rights advocates and then the Republican President called the whole thing off when too many states said fuck you through even more lawsuits.

But he tried.
