Anne,

We’re hoping to run a full-page ad in the New York Times as early as THIS SUNDAY to expose Trump’s sham ‘Election Integrity Commission’ and the right-wing vote suppressors who are on it.

The price tag is $55,000, and we have a major donor who will put up more than half of it -- $30,000 -- if we can raise the other $25,000 from supporters like you before our deadline at midnight tomorrow!

This is a BIG match opportunity -- and a big opportunity for PFAW Foundation supporters to make an impact against the Right’s war on voting -- but we HAVE TO hit our goal, because it’s all or nothing.

To sweeten the deal, gifts to PFAW Foundation are tax-deductible!

Trump has made outrageous (and completely false) claims about 3-5 million people voting illegally in 2016, to justify his loss of the popular vote, and trying to create ‘evidence’ for that unprovable fiction was his motivation in forming this commission.

But in trying to prop up the myth of rampant illegal voting, the commission’s underlying purpose is to lay the groundwork for a new wave of voter suppression nationwide, via voter roll purges and policies that put barriers between eligible voters and the ballot box.

We know this because of who is on the commission -- the same people we’ll be exposing in our ad if we can

Kris Kobach: Co-chair of the commission, Kansas Secretary of State, and perhaps the chief architect of the Right’s coordinated attack on voting rights. He has been repeatedly sued for making it harder for Kansans to vote. In 2016 he illegally blocked tens of thousands of eligible voters from registering.
