being reported that Vice President Mike Pence and his wife, Karen, voted by mail in Indiana’s GOP primary. On it’s face there doesn’t appear to be anything wrong with that, but Business Insider did some digging. They found that the couple “used their old address in the Indiana governor’s mansion, which they moved out of in December 2016 as they started the transition to their new home in Washington D.C.”
Basically – they haven’t lived in that taxpayer-funded address for four years. Why are they using it now to vote?
Trump claimed earlier in the day in all-caps: “RIGGED 2020 ELECTION: MILLIONS OF MAIL-IN BALLOTS WILL BE PRINTED BY FOREIGN COUNTRIES, AND OTHERS. IT WILL BE THE SCANDAL OF OUR TIMES!”
The Trump administration is also doing everything they can to stop mail-in voting, while some states from around the nation are pushing back, even making the way ballots are sent out mandatory. While Pence may have legally been in his right to vote by mail (as odd as that is given his living situation), he doesn’t want anyone else to do the same.
