In his letter, Dunlap wrote that he “joined the Commission in good faith,” but soon became concerned that “its purpose was not to pursue the truth but rather to provide an official imprimatur of legitimacy on President Trump’s assertions that millions of illegal votes were cast during the 2016 election and to pave the way for policy changes designed to undermine the right to vote.”
The Maine secretary of state also accused the White House and Kobach of making false statements and said that the commission showed “troubling bias.”
“Indeed, while staff prepared drafts of a report to be issued by the Commission, the sections on evidence of voter fraud are glaringly empty,” he wrote.
The White House, the vice president’s office and the Kansas secretary of state’s office did not immediately provide CNN with comment.
Dunlap wrote in his letter, “I do not expect the public simply to accept my conclusions,” and noted, “there is no single document that reveals there is no widespread voter fraud.” But, he said, “I rely on the lack of any evidence in the totality of what I reviewed.”
