Soros-funded groups are piling on lawsuits against President Trump’s voter fraud commission.
President Donald Trump’s Advisory Commission on Election Integrity finds itself under attack in the courts this week as multiple non-profits with links to left-wing billionaire George Soros pursue lawsuits against the newly established commission.
The Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) filed an amended complaint in their own lawsuit against the commission Monday alleging it has no authority to request voting records from the states as part of its mission. The commission halted such collection as a result.
Like the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), who are also suing the Advisory Commission, EPIC has in the past been a recipient of funds from Soros’s Open Societies Foundations, although, as EPIC Director Mark Rotenberg stressed to LifeZette Wednesday, the group, unlike the ACLU, has not received Soros money since 2005.
Nonetheless, attorneys with the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) — a conservative public interest law firm that has launched its own lawsuits trying to compel local election authorities to release their voter rolls and purge them of fraudulent registrants — say this does preclude collusion between the ideologically aligned groups.
