A nonprofit law firm run by a former member of President Donald Trump's now-disbanded voter fraud commission is suing Allegheny County for its alleged failure to maintain its voter rolls.
The Public Interest Legal Foundation, of which J. Christian Adams is president and general counsel, filed a lawsuit in federal court on Monday accusing the county of violating the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 by not undertaking a "reasonable effort" to remove the names of ineligible voters from its registration lists.
Under state and federal law, the county is supposed to remove voters who have moved out of state, who have died or who have requested to be removed in writing.
The Indiana-based law firm, though, claims that its review of the county's voter list provided to the foundation last October found, among other things, more than 3,700 sets of duplicate, triplicate and quadruplicate voter registration records; more than 1,500 deceased voters whose registrations should have been canceled, but remain active; more than 1,500 registrants with dates-of-birth listed more than 100 years ago; and more than 7,400 records that contain erroneous information stemming from the county's failure to correctly process name changes, including by way of marriage.
It filed suit, it said, because the county, by not ensuring that deceased people or those who have moved are not active registrants, is "impairing its essential and core mission of fostering compliance with federal election laws, promotion of election integrity and avoiding vote dilution when ineligible voters participate in elections.
Named as defendants are David Voye, manager of elections, county Executive Rich Fitzgerald, county Councilwoman Bethany Hallam and county Councilman Sam DeMarco who make up the board of elections and are responsible for supervising list maintenance.

HOORAY The Public Interest Legal Foundation & J. Christian Adams. OUTSTANDING. Thanks for posting.
I was on the voter rolls there. I have no idea how that happened. It was quite difficult to convince them to remove me.
Voter fraud. It’s a Burgh thing!
It’s nice to see this happening more and more.

I am going to have to add Adams to my daily prayers. This guy is definitely doing yeoman’s service in the cause of voter integrity.
Voter fraud is a Demonrat thing. Without it, they’d have a lot less power.
Wonder if I’m still listed....been gone over 30 years.
Why the hell was that ever disbanded? It's needed more than ever!
Shouldve told them you were a Republican and would vote twice.
I had lived there, but hadn’t lived at that address since around 1982. It’s my parent’s house. I don’t think I ever voted when I lived there, other than absentee for Reagan in 1980.
