Hans von Spakovsky of the Heritage Foundation says he’s neither been asked to participate in the investigation or been consulted about it. “Which seems a bit odd given that I’m one of the leading experts on voter fraud,” he wrote in an e-mail. Von Spakovsky is a former Justice Department official, who’s been talking and writing about the issue for well over a decade and maintains a database of voter fraud cases around the country.
What about David Becker, author of a 2012 Pew Center on the States report that Trump and White House aides have cited numerous times — often inaccurately — to back up their claims of widespread voter fraud? Becker says he hasn’t been consulted either, and doesn’t know of anyone who has. (For the record, Becker says his study found that state voter rolls were filled with outdated and duplicate registrations, but no evidence of fraud.)
Catherine Engelbrecht? She heads True the Vote, a grassroots group based in Texas that has been at the forefront of a national campaign to ferret out fraudulent votes. “I haven’t been contacted,” she replied.
But a few people, when contacted, were more vague.
