Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and senior adviser, has an apparent problem filling out forms. According to public records first picked up by Wired, Kushner is registered to vote in New York as a female. 

Kushner is already under fire for failing to properly complete security clearance forms and disclose his meetings with Russian officials during the 2016 presidential election. The revelation also comes in the same week his lawyer confirmed that he used a private email account to conduct official White House business with several administration officials. 

Meanwhile, the Trump administration has launched an unprecedented effort to investigate voter fraud—a problem that administration officials and allies have alleged is widespread, even though the evidence says otherwise. It’s unclear whether the president’s “election integrity” commission would count Kushner’s error as fraud.

And usually, that serves us well in doing the ambitious, hard-hitting journalism that you turn to Mother Jones for. But it also means we can't afford to come up short when it comes to scratching together the funds it takes to keep our team firing on all cylinders, and the truth is, we finished our budgeting cycle on June 30 about $100,000 short of our online goal.

This is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell, as our namesake would tell us to do, for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability has a chance at the polls and in the press. If you value our reporting and you can right now, please help us dig out of the $100,000 hole we're starting our new budgeting cycle in with an always-needed and always-appreciated donation today.
