Federal judge rules against Trump voter fraud commission in dispute with Maine commissioner

Late yesterday evening, a federal judge riled in favor of Maine's member of President Trump's voter fraud commission, who had sought an injunction to force the body to provide him access to information, schedules, and working documents to allow him to fully participate in its proceedings. The judge didn't parse words. Details in the story, which appears in tomorrow morning's Maine Sunday Telegram.

Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap, one of four Democrats on the 11-member body, sued the body in federal court after its staff for weeks ignored his request for these documents, alleging violations of the Federal Advisory Commissions Act, which requires commissioners receive communications equally.

Dunlap, initially open minded about the commission, has slowly become one its most vehement internal critic, denouncing its Vice Chair's erroneous accusations about fraud in New Hampshire and the lack of information flow.
