DENVER – President Donald Trump’s election integrity commission has received plenty of criticism about its motives for requesting voter roll information from every state in the U.S., and emails the White House released last week show just how angry some Americans are.
Though some people answered the commission’s request for input from citizens with constructive input on what they hoped the commission would accomplish, the overwhelming majority of responses the White House released were negative.

Some trolled the commission over the security of its transfer system, while others blatantly told the commission and its vice chair, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, to shove it (though often in much more flowery language).
Kobach and the commission were again widely mocked Wednesday after the commission’s first meeting, when Kobach said on MSNBC that “we may never know” if Hillary Clinton won the popular vote last year (she did by several million votes), and when he said “absolutely” when asked if votes cast for Trump were also in doubt.
The commission was only formed by the president after his yet-unfounded claims that “millions of people” voted illegally in last year’s election.
