Via TheNation, House Republicans Just Voted to Eliminate the Only Federal Agency That Makes Sure Voting Machines Canít Be Hacked

From the article:

"Itís particularly ironic that the Trump administration is preparing to launch a massive investigation into nonexistent voter fraud based on the lie that millions voted illegally while House Republicans are shutting down the agency that is supposed to make sure Americaís elections are secure. Itís more proof of how the GOPís real agenda is to make it harder to vote."

That last part is the real point of it.  The narrow margins of "victory" that Drumpf got were due to gerrymandering and voter discrimination.  Limited polling places in non-white neighbourhoods, voter ID laws... if you're not likely to vote for Republicans, you shouldn't get to vote at all, basically.
