The senior adviser and son-in-law to President Donald Trump marked ‘female’ on voter registration forms in 2009, according to publicly accessible voter information from the state of New York.
The records are held by New York State Board of Election. This development was first reported by Wired on Wednesday morning.
Kushner has been under growing pressure as investigations into Trumps relations to Russia only continue to intensify, and this information comes in the wake of recent news that the adviserused a private email account to correspond with fellow administration officials.
The Trump administration has made voter registration a major point in their battle to legitimize the president’s historic win this past November. In January, the president said 3 to 5 million people voted illegally for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. President Trump has since launched a commission to look into his allegations that currently have no evidence of being true.
White House officials have declined to comment on Kushner’s registration forms.
