Following Donald Trump’s befuddling allegations of voter fraud and his calls for a “major investigation” this week in his first interview from the White House, the Washington Post is reporting that at least five members of Donald Trump’s inner-circle are registered to vote in more than one state.
- Jared Kushner, Donald Trump’s son-in-law and one of his closest advisers. Registrations: New Jersey and New York
- White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer. Registrations: Virginia and Rhode Island.
- Chief White House Strategist Stephen K. Bannon. Registrations:
- Tiffany Trump, Donald Trump’s youngest daughter.
- Donald Trump’s nominee for Secretary of the Treasury, Steven Mnuchin. Registrations: New York and Florida.
From the report:
Their dual registrations offer two more high-profile examples of how common it is for voters to be on the rolls in multiple states — something Trump has claimed is evidence of voter fraud.
The reports come despite Donald Trump’s failure to render any proof, his refusal to acknowledge or admit that Russian hackers interfered with the election, and his legal maneuvering that effectively killed the recount efforts in three states (Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania) where the combined total of 79,000 votes decided the outcome of the electoral college.
Investigative reporter Greg Palast has long been making similar allegations, though his are cited by evidence and lead to a conclusion that Trump may not find appealing.
