Shaheen on President Trump's Decision to Dissolve Dubious Voter Fraud Commission: "The President's Decision Reaffirms the Lack of Evidence for Widespread Voter Fraud"

(Washington, DC) -- U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) issued the following statement after President Trump announced his decision to dissolve his commission to look into alleged widespread voter fraud: 

"The President's decision to dissolve this commission, once again, reaffirms the lack of evidence for widespread voter fraud," said Shaheen. "This commission was established to sow doubt regarding election outcomes and help lay the groundwork for voter suppression efforts. And while this commission has been suspended, unfortunately, voter suppression efforts continue unabated. Republican politicians, in both Washington and Concord, should focus their efforts on appealing to eligible voters rather than purging them from the rolls."
