Voter Turnout

Lawmaker Suggests Voter Anti-Fraud Group Targeting Minorities

Sends letters to True the Vote group with questions about their operations and volunteers


A top Democratic lawmaker is going after True the Vote, a prominent conservative anti-vote fraud group, over concerns that its efforts may adversely impact minority voters.

Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings, ranking member of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, has sent two letters to the Houston-based organization seeking "specific documents about the manner in which True the Vote and its affiliated organizations have been challenging the registration of thousands of voters across the country based on insufficient, inaccurate and faulty evidence."
