WASHINGTON --(ENEWSPF)--July 11, 2017. The American Civil Liberties Union filed a federal lawsuit yesterday over the lack of transparency by President Trump’s election commission.
The lawsuit charges the commission with failing to comply with the Federal Advisory Committee Act, which is designed to ensure public accountability of all advisory committees.
“The commission held its first meeting without notice or making it open to the public. This process is cloaked in secrecy, raising serious concerns about its credibility and intent. What are they trying to hide?” said Theresa Lee, a staff attorney with the ACLU’s Voting Rights Project . . .
