Presidential son-in-law and senior advisor Jared Kushner is enrolled as a female voter in New York, according to public documents.
Registration documents reveal that when Kushner, who’s married to first daughter Ivanka Trump, registered to vote in 2009, he apparently checked a box classifying his sex as a female.
Democratic opposition research team American Bridge first seen the mistake, which Wired then reported first.
“Kushner can not even complete the most elementary paperwork without screwing it up, so it is a puzzle why anyone thinks he is somehow going to bring peace to the Middle East,” Brad Bainum, a spokesperson for the group, told Wired about the error. “Would anybody but the president son-in-law still have a West Wing job after repeated disclosure mistakes and a botched a security clearance form?”
Kushner, with a huge portfolio of problems at the White House, has had to amend his national security clearance forms multiple times to include meetings with overseas contacts.
He told congressional investigators that the errors have been due to a “miscommunication” with his helper.
Before 2009, his New Jersey voter registration noted his sex as “unknown.”
