WASHINGTON, D.C. – Democracy Reform Task Force Chair Rep. John Sarbanes (D-Md.) issued the following statement today after President Donald Trump disbanded his administration’s so-called Election Integrity Commission:

“The primary goal of this sham commission was to validate – however spuriously – the President’s false claim of voter fraud in the 2016 election and to encourage “reforms” that would result in voter suppression in future elections. Now that the commission has been rightly put to rest, we must refocus our energy and our resources on expanding each and every Americans’ access to the ballot box and giving more Americans a voice in our democracy.”
