“Partisan commission”

I am very heartened that Kansas officials have refused to release information as demanded by the clearly partisan and biased Presidential Commission on Election Integrity. I do not want my personal information shared with this commission because I do not trust the intentions of its members.

Republicans claim that illegal voting threatens the integrity of elections. Democrats are convinced that Republicans have created a bogus issue in order to suppress voting. Given that this is such a hotly contested partisan issue, a commission to investigate election integrity absolutely must be bipartisan. How can we trust the findings of this commission when the integrity of the commission itself is in doubt?
