Trump’s former chief of staff can no longer (allegedly) commit voter fraud in North Carolina
This may not seem like a big deal compared to all the other sleazy, sneaky, probably criminal behavior donald trump and society engaged in the encirclement of the last election, but in case you haven’t heard, the last chief of staff of the former president, Mark Meadows, registered to vote in 2020 using a North Carolina mobile home address he never owned or lived. This is something you are not allowed to do. In fact, people have been prosecuted for less!—and Meadows is now under investigation for committing election fraud. And in the meantime, North Carolina has taken a step to ensure that he can no longer vote there illegally (allegedly).
the Asheville Citizen-Times reports that Meadows was removed from the state voter rolls under General Law 163-57, which states that “if a person travels to another state, county, municipality, precinct, ward, or other electoral district, or to the District of Columbia, and while exercises the right of a citizen to vote at an election, such person shall be deemed to have lost his residence in such state, county, municipality, precinct, ward, or other electoral district of which such person moved. In addition to not owning or living in the home he claimed was his permanent residence, Meadows was also registered to vote in Virginia, where he actually lived while serving as chief of staff.
“Macon County has administratively removed Mark Meadows’ voter registration under [state law]because he lived in Virginia and last voted in the 2021 election there,” mentioned Pat Ganon, a spokesperson for the North Carolina State Board of Elections, according to Insider.
Last month, the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation mentioned that a special investigations unit was looking into the curious case of Meadows’ decision to register to vote using the address of, by the new yorker, a “14-by-62-foot mobile home” which, again, he never lived in. The investigation is being conducted with the state board of elections. A spokesperson for Meadows did not respond to the Citizen Times‘ request for comment.
Donald Trump, of course, has spent the last 15 months making baseless claims that voter fraud cost him the 2020 election, and Meadows reportedly spent his final weeks as chief of staff trying to help his boss overturn the results, pressuring senior officials to address absurd theories of voter fraud. , including one about Italian satellites changing Trump’s votes into votes for Joe Biden and another on China using thermostats hack voting machines. We also learned recently that he had exchanged a number of text messages with Clarence Thomashis wife, Ginny Thomas, subject: prevent Biden from becoming president. But apparently the call came from inside the house!
