Pennsylvania Senate Republicans voted Wednesday to subpoena vast troves of personal information about millions of voters, including partial Social Security numbers, as they engage with false conspiracies about the 2020 election…
But Pennsylvania appears to be taking a different approach than Arizona. Rather than requesting ballots and voting machines as Arizona did — and as Trump supporters have been pushing for — Pennsylvania Republicans are beginning their taxpayer-funded “investigation” by seeking voters’ personal information to, as the chair of the committee running the show said Wednesday, determine “whether or not they exist.”
…Republicans are demanding lists of personal information for all 6.9 million people who voted in Pennsylvania in the November 2020 election, everyone who voted in the state’s May 2021 primary election, and every person who was a registered voter in the state as of May 1. That personal information includes all voters’ names, dates of birth, addresses, driver’s license numbers, the last four digits of their Social Security numbers, and the date of their “last voting activity.”
What could go wrong giving personal information to zealots? Congrats, PA, your Republican Senate just stole your identity. Sign up for credit monitoring today!
