Former Trump Aide Investigated for Voting Illegally After Reports He Lied About His Residency

Former President Donald Trump's ex-Chief of Staff, Mark Meadows, parroted Trump's fantasies that the 2020 election—the most secure election in American history—was victim to widespread voter fraud.

In reality, voter fraud is extremely rare, and remained rare during the 2020 election. Many of the few confirmed cases of voter fraud were also committed by Trump supporters and registered Republicans. Meadows himself may be among them.

According to a report from Charles Bethea of the New Yorker released earlier this month, Meadows' voter registration listed a mobile home in North Carolina as his residence at the time of the 2020 election.

There's just one problem, as the report states:

"Meadows does not own this property and never has. It is not clear that he has ever spent a single night there."

Meadows sold his home in North Carolina (he still maintains an apartment near D.C.) ahead of the 2020 election, and registered the mobile home as his residence just before the state's registration deadline. While neighbors interviewed by the New Yorker said Meadows' wife, Debbie, stayed there occasionally, there's no evidence that the mobile home is where they "physically live"—a requirement for listing an address as one's residence on North Carolina voter forms.

Now, North Carolina officials are investigating Meadows' registration after a request by North Carolina Attorney General, Josh Stein, to the State Bureau of Investigation. Stein's office began handling the probe upon request from Macon County District Attorney Ashley Welch, who recused herself after noting that Meadows contributed to her campaign.

It's unclear what the investigation will find, but social media users feel the probe is a necessary helping of poetic justice for an official who helped promote Trump's election lies.

Some said Meadows was the latest instance of Republican projection when it comes to accusing Democrats of voter fraud.

Meadows has also been referred for a contempt of Congress charge after his refusal to cooperate with the select committee investigating the Capitol Riot that Trump's election lies sparked.
