President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner is registered as a female voter in the state of New York, according to public records.
The records show that when he registered to vote in New York in 2009, Kushner checked the box marked “female” for his gender.
Democratic opposition research group American Bridge first spotted the error, which Wired.com then reported.
“Kushner can’t even fill out the most basic paperwork without screwing it up, so it’s a mystery why anyone thinks he’s somehow going to bring peace to the Middle East,” Brad Bainum, a spokesperson for the group, told Wired about the mistake. “Would anyone but the president’s son-in-law still have a West Wing job after repeated disclosure errors and a botched a security clearance form?”
Prior to 2009, Kushner’s New Jersey voter registration noted his gender as “unknown.”
The White House senior adviser has had to repeatedly amend his federal security clearance forms adding more than 100 names to the list, including meetings with foreign contacts with ties to the Kremlin and Russian banks.
He told congressional investigators that the mistakes have been due to a “miscommunication” with his assistant.
