Steve Bannon, Donald Trump's new campaign CEO, is reportedly the subject of a voter registration investigation, NBC News reported Wednesday. Election officials in Miami-Dade County in Florida confirmed that a local state attorney's office requested Bannon's voter records last week, when reports surfaced that Bannon had registered to vote using an address to a now vacant Florida home that he never lived in. Bannon reportedly rented the home for his ex-wife, Diane Clohesy.
Miami-Dade state attorney's spokesman, Ed Griffith, declined to either confirm or deny the investigation, though he did note that the office is able to investigate any potential violation that is brought to light. But the executive assistant to the county's election supervisor did not think "there was anything obvious in Bannon's voter record that suggested fraud," NBC News reported, especially because Bannon never voted in the county after registering there. "There is nothing here that I see that he did wrong," Rosy Pastrana told NBC News.
Prior to registering in Miami-Dade County in April 2014, Bannon was registered to vote in California, which is where his primary residence is reported to be. Within the last few weeks, Bannon reportedly sent in a change of registration form with a new address listed in Florida's Sarasota County.
