Investigative reporting from Heat Street:
Donald Trump announced Wednesday that he would request an investigation into voter fraud, “including those registered to vote in two states.” But the new president’s own daughter Tiffany Trump is registered to vote in both Pennsylvania and New York, Heat Street has learned.
“There is nothing illegal about that,” said Fred Voigt, the deputy election commissioner for Philadelphia. “The illegality only occurs if one votes in two places, not if you’re registered in both.”
Tiffany Trump lived in Philadelphia while attending the University of Pennsylvania, graduating in May. Voigt said it was “very common for college students to be registered both where they live and where they go to school.”
According to public records, Tiffany Trump cast her vote in November in New York City and did not vote in Pennsylvania.
The spokeswoman for the New York City Board of Elections also confirmed that there was no legal problem with Tiffany Trump registering as a voter in both states.
In addition to Tiffany Trump, senior White House adviser Steve Bannon is also registered to vote in both Florida and New York, according to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune. Bannon cast his absentee ballot in New York in November.
Might be something for the Trump Administration to look into if it wants to crack down on people registering in multiple states.
I smell a Pulitzer. Either that or Tigger just farted.
