Palestra.net Investigation WIdens Obama Probe on Out of State Staffers Bypassing Residency Requirements to Vote
Palestra.net-COLUMBUS, OH and CHARLOTTE, NC-Palestra.net, a college based news network who first reported that Obama staffers in Ohio who were not Ohio residents that tried to vote, has uncovered new findings of Obama staffers bypassing residency and registration requirements in key battleground states.
North Carolina Staffer Registered to vote in Three States, Two are Battlegrounds
Palestra.net revealed that Farah Minwalla, an Obama field organizer in North Carolina, registered to vote in Mecklenburg County near Charlotte on October 4. According to county auditor reports obtained by FOX News and Palestra.net, the address Minwalla used belongs to a Wanda Nabors, but interestingly Minwalla is also registered to vote in New York State and Nevada. Palestra confirmed that all three registrations are active so it raises questions if the Obama staffer is a legal resident of North Carolina, Nevada or New York? Technically, it appears that her registration is legal in all three.
Minwalla's online bio for NextGenNow says she is currently pursuing a degree in English and Journalism in New York City. As of July, Minwalla wrote a review for a band in Brooklyn, but now she's registered to vote in swing state North Carolina proving that this is a continuing trend nationwide. North Carolina election mandates that a voter must be a permanent resident to vote.
Palestra.net Documented Incidents of Temporary Campaign Workers Illegally registered to Vote
Palestra.net has also documented that Obama Campaign workers that are from out of state have illegally registered to vote in Florida, Nevada, Missouri, and Virginia in which people are from states that are not competitive in the election, but are working in battleground states. In all these states they mirror North Carolina's law that you must be a permanent resident to vote.
