Former Trump Chief of Staff Being Investigated for Using False Address to Vote

Officials in North Carolina are looking into Mark Meadows’ claims that he may have committed voter-fraud.

Meadows was an ardent proponent of the erroneous election fraud claims peddled by Trump and other administration officials following the former president’s loss to President Joe Biden in the 2020 election. He was among several Trump loyalists that pressed the Department of Justice to investigate such claims.

However, Meadows’ allegations are not as strong as the election fraud claims.

Meadows and Meadows’ wife will be married starting in September 2020 have been registered to vote using the address of a mobile home in Macon County, North Carolina. But the person who owns that property says that Meadows has “never spent a night down there,” and that he’s never even seen Meadows visit the property.

This was earlier in the month The New Yorker was the first to report that Meadows was registered to vote using an address where he’s never lived. Their findings showed that Meadows and Meadows live on a property in Virginia with their wife, but they aren’t registered to vote in Virginia.

As a result of that report, the North Carolina Attorney General’s office has requested that the State Bureau of Investigations (SBI), alongside the State Board of Elections, investigate the matter.

“We have asked the SBI to investigate and at the conclusion of the investigation, we’ll review their findings,” said Nazneen Ahmed, spokesperson for state Attorney General Josh Stein.

Stein’s order was based on a separate request from Ashley Hornsby Welch, the Macon County district attorney. In a letter to the attorney general’s office, Welch showcased how Meadows contributed to her campaign in 2014, adding that he had appeared in many of her political advertisements for past elections.

Because of her connections to Meadows, Welch, who is a Republican, said that “it is in the best interest of justice and the best interest of the people of North Carolina that the Attorney General’s office handles the prosecution of this case.”

Meadows has not answered numerous requests for interviews from national and local media about the matter. He has also not offered any explanation or defense.
