White House senior advisor and Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner registered to vote as a female, according to voter registration records obtained by Wired’s Ashley Feinberg.

Feinberg adds that Kushner’s previous voter registration in New Jersey shows his gender as “unknown.”
While there’s nothing to suggest that this was anything other than a mistake, the report does speak to the level of basic competency that Kushner has exhibited since rising to power on his father-in-law’s coattails.
Trump has put Kushner in charge of everything from brokering peace in the Middle East to solving the opioid crisis to reforming the criminal justice system even though Kushner has proven he can’t do something as simple as fill out a form correctly.
If the voter registration flub is not proof enough, consider his adventures filling out a basic disclosure form.
CBS reported in July that Kushner had to update his disclosure form necessary to obtain a security clearance at least three times.
According to CBS, Kushner submitted his form in January without a single name listed under the section that required him to disclose all foreign contacts.
Kushner had to amend the form to include some foreign contacts and blamed his team for sending the form before he had a chance to complete it.
Except it still was not complete.
According to CBS, Kushner had to amend the form again in May when he was forced to disclose over 100 calls and meetings with foreign officials.
Except that was not the end of it.
In June, it was revealed Kushner attended a meeting set up by his brother-in-law, Donald Jr., with Kremlin-linked lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya. The attorney reportedly offered to present “dirt” on Hillary Clinton.
Kushner amended his disclosure to amend the meeting with “the person who has since been identified as a Russian attorney.”
“Kushner can’t even fill out the most basic paperwork without screwing it up, so it’s a mystery why anyone thinks he’s somehow going to bring peace to the Middle East,” said Brad Bainum, a spokesperson for American Bridge, which first found Kushner’s registration form. “Would anyone but the president’s son-in-law still have a West Wing job after repeated disclosure errors and a botched a security clearance form?”
The revelation comes as Trump and his cronies wage a war against non-existent “voter fraud.” But don’t expect Kushner to get in trouble over his gender confusion.
“There has to be an intent to give the false information,” Loyola Law School professor Justin Levitt told Wired. “If he (for some reason) knowingly registered as a woman—for what purpose, I could not guess—that might be described as voter fraud, though it would have negligible effect on the determination of his eligibility, and so wouldn’t amount to much anyway.”
