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. 

THE BIG PICTURE

You expect the big picture, and it's our job at Mother Jones to give it to you. And right now, so many of the troubles we face are the making not of a virus, but of the quest for profit, political or economic (and not just from the man in the White House who could have offered leadership and comfort but instead gave us bleach).

In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," we unpack what the coronavirus crisis has meant for journalism, including Mother Jones’, and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support our nonprofit journalism with a donation: We've scoured our budget and made the cuts we can without impairing our mission, and we hope to raise $400,000 from our community of online readers to help keep our big reporting projects going because this extraordinary pandemic-plus-election year is no time to pull back.
