On the West Virginia Morning, shortly after taking office, President Donald Trump signed an executive order creating the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity. The 13-member commission is chaired by Vice President Mike Pence, but its vice chair — Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach — is doing a lot of the groundwork for the group.

Wood County Clerk Mark Rhodes was appointed to the commission, which held its first meeting in Washington, D.C., last month. Rhodes told Ashton Marra he doesn’t believe there is widespread voter fraud in West Virginia, or across the country, but he still believes in the commission’s work.
