"Donald Trump's so-called election integrity commission was a scam and a fraud from beginning to end", said Marge Baker, executive vice president of the progressive People for the American Way.

"The President's commission has requested the personal data and the voting history of every American voter-including Californians", Padilla said at the time.

"The abrupt abandonment of the commission makes clear that it had become a thoroughly discredited body that could not find evidence of mass voter fraud", Gupta said.

"It was a waste of the taxpayer's dollars because it essentially was meant to sooth the President's ego that he lost the popular vote and couldn't quite come to terms with that", said Ethan Corson, the Executive Director of Kansas Democrats.
