Jared registered as a female

Jared Kushner is no stranger to queries about his form-filling – a request for White House security clearance had to be resubmitted to include all his foreign contacts – but his latest controversy has perhaps come as more of a surprise. He has been registered to vote as a woman for the last eight years.

Records filed with the New York state board of elections show Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser registered as a female voter in 2009.

The news comes as Kushner’s lawyer acknowledged Kushner used a private email account for official business – despite Trump having regularly excoriated Hillary Clinton for doing the same – and it emerged that the property firm run by his family was being sued for allegedly adding illegal fees to its tenants’ rent.
