Election 2016

Trump Campaign CEO Implicated in Actual Voter Fraud

As we know, because Breitbart News told us so, voter fraud is a major problem in this country.

Imagine everyone’s surprise then that former Breitbart News chief and Trump campaign CEO Stephen Bannon is illegally registered to vote in Florida where he does not live.

Hilariously, the address he’s registered to is actually scheduled to be demolished.

“I have emptied the property,” Luis Guevara, the owner of the house, which is in the Coconut Grove section of the city, said in an interview. “Nobody lives there … we are going to make a construction there.” […]

Election officials in Miami-Dade make clear to prospective voters that they are required to actually live in the county and to use their home address in election paperwork. “You must reside in Miami-Dade County,” their website states. It adds: “When you register to vote, an actual residence address is required by law.” A county spokeswoman did not respond to questions relating to Bannon’s situation.

Whoops!

Schadenfreud aside, this is a fairly benign case of “fraud” and probably just an oversight or mistake just as most cases are. Even cases such as this are very rare and cases of intentionally malicious behavior are virtually non-existent and certainly do not have any impact on election results.

But this is not the intended image conservatives wish to project when they speak of “voter fraud.” Their version of “fraud” is simply black people voting. That’s it.

In related news, Politico reported this morning that Bannon was charged with misdemeanor domestic violence for assaulting his ex-wife in 1996. The Arizona Daily Star also reported that Bannon admitted in court to threatening a female colleague in 1994.

    I know this petty and insignificant but if this were anyone associated with the Clinton campaign (doubly so if African American or Hispanic) Trump and his minions would beat it like a drum. So I hope at least one enterprising journalist rubs it in their faces brings it up at a press conference.

    Oh well, then. Sounds like a good fit for the Trump Monster campaign. A match made…….somewhere that is not heaven.

    I look forward to Stephen Bannon’s explanation for his incorrect voter registration. If he doesn’t blame illegal aliens and the mainstream media, I’ll be terribly disappointed.

      The truth is out there hidden in a can of Bechtel and a jar of Raytheon. Just follow the chem trails.

    Ashby,

    This is bullshit. Total and absolute bullshit. I can’t believe you would even put your name to something like this.

    Everyone knows that only liberals and minorities engage in voter fraud.
