"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.
