President Donald Trump’s voter fraud commission is facing mounting criticism from Democratic members on the panel who have questioned the group’s purpose and claimed they don’t even know when the group will meet next. Several Democrats on the Election Integrity Commission said the work has stalled, and internal communication has slowed to a trickle since the panel held its first meeting in July. “The reality is, I don’t know anymore now than I knew three months ago,” said Alan King, a probate judge in Alabama and one of the commission’s Democratic members.
The panel held its second meeting last month in New Hampshire, and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, the commission’s vice chairman, told the NewsHour the panel is in the process of planning its next meeting.
“There will be another meeting in the next few months,” Kobach, a Republican, said in a phone interview Monday. Kobach said no date has been set for the meeting.
Asked if he was aware of plans for the next meeting, King said: “No, and that was news to me. I haven’t received information one way or another.”
