Cicilline Statement on Trump Finally Disbanding Fake Voter Fraud Commission

Jan 3, 2018

PAWTUCKET - U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (RI-01), author of the Automatic Voter Registration Act, issued the following statement tonight:

“Every American citizen has the right to make his or her voice heard at the ballot box. But for several years now, self-serving politicians have tried to take this right away from working men and women, minorities, and young people, by making it more difficult or impossible to vote.”

“President Trump tried to build on these efforts, but tonight the President was forced to end his efforts to make it more difficult for Americans to vote by dissolving his bogus voter fraud commission.”

“Rather than trying to make it more difficult to participate in our democracy, we should be working together in a bipartisan way  to protect our democratic institutions, prevent foreign interference in our elections, and expand voter participation.”

“The right to vote is the foundation of our democracy and every American should be committed to protecting this sacred right.”
