President Trump’s Federal Election Integrity Commission, vice chaired by Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, has attracted some criticism and lawsuits. But the commission's work will continue. This week, a federal judge delivered a legal setback to those who were hoping to modify the commission or see its work come to an end.
The ACLU and the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law filed two of the lawsuits. They were asking for more transparency from the commission and meetings that members of the public could attend, not just watch on a live stream. The lawsuits argued that the commission members should make changes, and if they didn't, any meetings should be blocked.
A federal judge disagreed, saying that there's no clear violation of the law that would require immediate response. The judge said she could take action in the future if it’s warranted.
