Trump voting commission criticized for lack of transparency

WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) - President Donald Trump's advisory commission on election integrity has integrity questions of its own - with some of its own members raising concerns about its openness.

This past week, two members fired off letters to commission staff complaining about a lack of information about the panel's agenda and demanding answers about its activities.

That comes as Democratic U.S. senators are requesting a government investigation of the commission for ignoring formal requests from Congress.

The commissioners' criticism was remarkable because it came from the very people who are supposed to be privy to the commission's internal discussions and plans.

One commissioner, Maine Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap, wrote that he feels - quote - "completely uninformed" about the commission's activities.

A commissioner from Alabama, Jefferson County Probate Judge Alan L. King, says he sent a similar letter.
