A group of Senate Democrats is asking a government watchdog to investigate President Trump’s voter fraud commission. Democratic Sens. Michael Bennet (Colo.), Amy Klobuchar (Minn.) and Cory Booker (N.J.) sent a letter to the Government Accountability Office (GAO) saying the panel, known as the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, is a “cause for serious concern.” “Investigative reports raise questions about the partisan motives and actions of the Commission,” the senators wrote. They added that the panel has “ignored numerous requests” from lawmakers seeking to clarify its activities.
Senators want the GAO to look into any federal funds that have been directed to the panel as well as what work the commission has done on voter participation and protection for voter information.
The Democratic lawmakers also want to know what methods the commission is using to draw any conclusions and how it is obeying rules governing its activities.
