The case stems from Meadows use of an address, a trailer home, in which he never lived nor owned according to reports.
Prosecutors called it a case of possible crimes committed by a government official.
Macon County, North Carolina, District Attorney Ashley Hornsby Welch wrote, “The allegations in this case involve potential crimes committed by a government official.”
The investigation was brought to be by a New Yorker magazine article which exposed the legitimacy of Meadows’ voter registration in North Carolina by pointing to the mobile home on Scaly Mountain.
North Carolina state law requires someone live at a residence for 30 days before the election they plan to vote in, and Meadows registered t vote on September 19th, and listed his move-in date of the mobile home for the next day.
The article noted that there is no indication that Meadows spent even a night at the residence, and the only connection is that his wife had rented the place for one night in the past.
