(AmericanProsperity.com) – Mark Meadows, former President Trump’s chief of staff, was a prominent member of the Trump Administration and serves as a major voice supporting the former president’s claims of election fraud in 2020. As hard as he pushes the claims, he has found himself in a bit of a pickle regarding election laws. The North Carolina Board of Elections removed him from their voter rolls.
Cause for Concern?
The board removed the former North Carolina congressman from their list of eligible voters following allegations that he registered using an address where he wasn’t in residence. According to the state’s records, Meadows registered to vote with an address belonging to a Scaly Mountain mobile home.
Meadows was living in Virginia at the time. Not to mention the fact his former landlord and the previous owner of the property claimed Meadows himself never stayed a single night there, naming only a handful of times the former congressman’s wife was at the address.
The current homeowner, Ken Abele, told the New Yorker it’s weird Meadows used the address to register to vote, listing it as the place he was physically staying.
It’s easy to see where a conflict of interest would arise from the situation as Meadows claims there was election fraud in the 2020 presidential election that allowed Biden to win, and the former chief of staff is now facing allegations of committing voter fraud himself. Meadows also claimed absentee ballots and mail-in voting were major contributing factors to the amount of alleged fraud taking place in 2020.
Yet, Meadows requested an absentee ballot to be sent to an address in Alexandria, Virginia. Only weeks after registering to vote in North Carolina no less, according to WRAL News. Are these allegations true? Or are they a way to discredit Meadows and his claims of election fraud?
What Lies Ahead for Meadows?
The board of elections has already removed Meadows from the voter’s list under the state’s election laws. The Tar Heel State requires voters to update their residency any time there’s a change, and the voter registration form warns that any fallacies or acts of fraud are a category I felony and punishable by 3-12 months in prison. The elections board certainly has the power to investigate credible claims of voter fraud and will inform prosecutors if it deems necessary.
There may be plenty of credibility here for the state to take action against the former congressman. It’s very possible that Meadows could be spending several months in prison in the future.
