Rauner Appointees Side with Trump on Crosscheck
Chicago, IL – Bruce Rauner’s handpicked members of the State Board of Elections votedyesterday to keep Illinois in the Crosscheck program, a key priority of Donald Trump in the “GOP’sstealth war against voters.”
While there’s no evidence of voter fraud in Illinois, the Trump administration is still pushing states to opt into the program that needlessly exposes personal information and could disenfranchise voters. Instead of standing up to protect Illinoisans, Rauner’s appointees sided with Donald Trump.
“All four members that Bruce Rauner appointed to the State Board of Elections chose fear over facts and stood firmly by Donald Trump’s side,” said Pritzker campaign spokeswoman Jordan Abudayyeh. “Illinois needs a governor who will protect voting rights and stand up to Trump’s relentless attacks on this state.”
