Trump voter fraud commission faces lawsuit from member

1 min read

A member of President Donald Trump’s commission on voter fraud sued in federal court on Thursday, alleging that the commission is violating federal law by excluding him and others from participating in the work of the commission and refusing to provide documents available to other members.
The lawsuit, filed by Maine Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., claims violations of the Federal Advisory Committee Act and seeks to compel the commission to hand over all documents Dunlap has requested along with all future documents prepared for or by the commission.
In addition, Dunlap is asking the court to compel the commission to include him in all communications among commissioners and staff and prevent the commission from releasing any final report until he has had a chance to review it.
“My goal in filing this lawsuit is to bring the commission into full compliance with FACA, which would allow me and all of my fellow commissioners to fulfill our roles as full, participating members and provide a meaningful report to the President upon concluding our work,” Dunlap said in a statement.
Emails seeking comment from the office of Vice President Mike Pence, who chairs the commission; Andrew Kossack, the commission’s executive director; and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who serves as vice chair, were not immediately returned.
