Trump voter fraud commission sued by one of its own members, alleging Democrats are being kept in the dark

Washington Post,  November 10, 2017

Maine Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap said in a complaint filed in federal court that the 11-member panel is in violation of a federal law that requires presidential advisory commissions to be both balanced and transparent in their work.

“The Commission has, in effect, not been balanced because Secretary Dunlap and the other Democratic commissioners have been excluded from the Commission’s work,” says the complaint, filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. “The Commission’s operations have not been open and transparent, not even to the commissioners themselves, who have been deprived access to documents prepared by and viewed by other commissioners.” ...

Last month, Dunlap and Alan King, a probate judge in Alabama and another of the commission’s Democratic members, wrote separately to [the commission's executive director] Kossack, demanding basic information such as when the panel might meet again, what kind of research is being conducted by its staff and when it might send a report to the president.
