Election Probe Reveals Trump's Sidekick Steve Bannon Is One of the Fraudulent Voters He's Been Whining About

The discovery comes after the president asked for a "major investigation."

Published January 25, 2017

  1. This morning, President Trump announced that he requested a 'major investigation' into the 3 to 5 million people he claims committed voter fraud in the election that he won
  2. And once the news was out, some active snooping by journalists revealed that Steve 'I Own Donald Trump' Bannon is registered to vote in two states

    Chris Anderson of the Sarasota Herald-Tribune penned a cheeky piece revealing that Bannon is registered in both Sarasota County and New York City.  

    “3108 Casey Key Road[?] … [T]his is where Bannon lives, or is supposed to live, still, according to the Sarasota County Supervisor of Elections office. It’s the address listed on his voter registration form, effective Aug. 25,” Anderson wrote. “There is only problem: Bannon is also registered to vote in New York City, listing a home address on West 40th Street, and according to a spokesman for the New York State Board of Elections, he voted there in November by absentee ballot.”

  3. Additionally, it was discovered that Tiffany 'What About Me' Trump is also registered in Pennsylvania and New York
  4. Additionally, voting experts have repeatedly said that there is no evidence of voter fraud in this election

    “We’ve seen this before during the Bush administration’s large scale investigation into allegations of voter fraud,” Dale Ho, director of ACLU’s Voting Rights Project told Buzzfeed News. “And they didn’t find anything except scattered instances of some people making mistakes, but not engaging in intentional wrongdoing. I hope we would’ve learned our lesson by now.”

    According to Ho, an investigation such as this would “damage people’s lives if used to prosecute or deport people,” and would be used to “demagogue immigration and voting restrictions that are unnecessary and demonize non-citizens and immigrants.”
