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. 

REAL QUICK, REAL URGENT

Minority rule, corruption, disinformation, attacks on those who dare tell the truth: There is a direct line from what's happening in Russia and Ukraine to what's happening here at home. And that's what MoJo's Monika Bauerlein writes about in "Their Fight Is Our Fight" to unpack the information war we find ourselves in and share a few examples to show why the power of independent, reader-supported journalism is such a threat to authoritarians.

Corrupt leaders the world over can (and will) try to shut down the truth, but when the truth has millions of people on its side, you can't keep it down for good. And there's no more powerful or urgent argument for your support of Mother Jones' journalism right now than that. We need to raise about $450,000 to hit our online fundraising budget in these next few months, so please read more from Monika and pitch in if you can.
