Trump Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany Has Voted By Mail 11 Times In Last 10 Years: Report




White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany has repeatedly defended President Donald Trump’s baseless claims that allowing everyone to vote by mail would result in an unprecedented surge in “voter fraud.”

But according to The Tampa Bay Times, a review of McEnany’s voting history in Florida has revealed that she has voted by mail 11 times in 10 years.



“In fact, the Tampa native has voted by mail in every Florida election she has participated in since 2010,” the Tampa Bay Times has found. “Most recently, she voted by mail in the state’s March 2020 presidential primary, just as Trump did after he made Florida his new permanent home.”

Trump also voted by mail in Florida during the state’s 2020 presidential primary, and McEnany defended it last week as necessary because “he’s here in Washington” and “he’s the president.”

McEnany has recently encouraged her Twitter followers to “get the facts” about mail-in ballots and demanded that the media “acknowledge these real concerns with mass mail-in voting.”

Trump has threatened to withhold funding from some states who have allowed residents to apply to vote by mail in light of the coronavirus pandemic and McEnany has parroted the president’s false claims that mail-in voting is tied to large-scale election fraud.



“[There is] bipartisan consensus on the fact that mass mail-in voting can lead to fraud,” she said last week. Incidents of voter fraud have historically been rare and isolated.
