Mark Meadows Could Face Voter Fraud Investigation For Claiming N.C. Residence Where He Never Lived
Mark Meadows, former President Donald Trump‘s chief of staff, could face voter fraud allegations for listing a North Carolina residence he never lived at as his physical address before casting his ballot in the 2020 election.
The address he listed as his physical address on September 19, 2020, was for a mobile home in Scaly Mountain, North Carolina. During that time period, Meadows was serving as the President’s chief of staff in Washington D.C.
Neighbors reported that they had never seen Meadows at the residence, but that his wife had rented it out before. They said that they had never seen Meadows there with her and that it could be the case that Meadows had never even visited.
Speculation as to Meadow’s motivations includes wanting to keep his residence in North Carolina as rumors were circulating that he was interested in running for Nort Carolina Republican Richard Burr‘s Senate seat. He ended up not running for the seat.
While Meadows listed the address as his physical address, he listed the move-in date as September 20, 2020, a day later. That could invalidate the registration.
Meadows repeatedly brought up voter fraud in connection to President Joe Biden‘s win in the 2020 election.
The “hypocrisy of helping to spread false claims of voter fraud in 2020 in an attempt to overturn the election,” combined with the registration information, “is unparalleled,” Bobby Richardson, chair of the North Carolina Democratic Party, said in a written statement.
Meadows grew up in Florida but moved to North Carolina in the 1980s. He opened a restaurant and later started a real estate company. He ran for Congress in 2012 and served in the House of Representatives for North Carolina’s eleventh district until he resigned to join the Trump administration in March 2020.
