Faith Organization Letter Against Funding the Commission on Election Integrity

Endorsement

 

The Reconstructionist Rabbinical College/Jewish Reconstructionist Communities signed a letter to Congress opposing the funding of President Trump’s “Commission on Election Integrity.” In the letter’s words:

On behalf of the 24 undersigned faith organizations, representing the breadth and depth of America’s religious communities, we urge you not to fund the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity (the commission) during the appropriations process. The commission, which exists solely to perpetuate unsubstantiated myths of widespread voter fraud and to lay the groundwork for restrictions on the right to vote, will not bolster the integrity of our elections. We ask that you refrain from directing taxpayer dollars to an operation that threatens a cornerstone of our democracy.
