Trump’s ‘Expert’ On Voter Fraud Is Registered To Vote In Three States

According to Donald Trump, Gregg Phillips of True the Vote is an absolute expert on the topic of voter fraud in the United States. Phillips claims he will soon be presenting evidence that anywhere from 3-5 million people voted illegally in the 2016 election.

And yet we now discover that Phillips, for all of his passionate fervor on the topic of voter fraud, is registered to vote in three states: Alabama, Mississippi, and Texas.

Both Phillips and Trump have made a very big deal out of Americans who are registered to vote in more than one state. Yet a simple check by the Associated Press found that Phillips is guilty of the same “fraud” he accuses others of being involved in. And some of Trump’s own family are also registered in multiple states.

The AP found that Phillips was registered in Alabama and Texas under the name Gregg Allen Phillips, with an identical Social Security number. Mississippi voter registration rolls list him under the name Gregg A. Phillips, and that also includes the final four digits of Phillips’ Social Security number, his correct date of birth, and even a prior address matching one once attached to Gregg Allen Phillips.

Just last week, Trump announced he would instruct federal officials to investigate voter fraud, commenting:

“When you look at the people that are registered, dead, illegal and two states, and some cases maybe three states, we have a lot to look into.”

Contacted by phone Monday and asked about his multiple voter registrations, Phillips had this to say:

“Why would I know or care?

“Doesn’t that just demonstrate how broken the system is? That is not fraud — that is a broken system. We need a national ID that travels with people.”

Actually, what it demonstrates, Mr. Phillips, is that you’re a hypocritical assclown who is trying to make money off lies that you have spread far and wide and even managed to convince the simple-minded head of state are true.

So when the big federal investigation is conducted, I suggest we indict and prosecute Gregg Phillips–along with Tiffany Trump and Jared Kushner–for voter fraud and throw the book at them. That would send the message that voter fraud will not be tolerated in any form or by any American.

Sound good to you, too, Donald?
