Voting experts who have been following President Donald Trump’s voter fraud commission with watchful eyes for the past several months aren’t impressed with the panel’s early efforts.
Commission detractors, including a former presidential commission chairman, told NBC News that four months after the president created his commission to examine the election system, the group is limping along after two public meetings and may end up doing more harm than good.
“F at the beginning, F all along, F now. It’s an F enterprise,” said Bob Bauer, a Democrat who served as the co-chairman of President Barack Obama’s presidential election commission in 2013 and 2014….
David Becker, executive director and founder of the Center for Election Innovation & Research, a nonprofit Washington institute, said the commission had no accomplishments to date and was on the wrong track.
“If there’s been a more embarrassing or less accomplished presidential commission in history, I’d love for someone to point it out,” said Becker, who has worked with a group that conducts much of the same voter data sharing the commission aims to do.
