A liberal activist group is behind a smear campaign against Jared Kushner. The son in law of President Trump registered to vote as a woman in New York City, the allegation goes. But that’s not true. The idea first came from American Bridge, a Democrat oppo research group founded by left-wing hatchet man David Brock. But the New York Daily News investigation found that Kushner was registered as a male in 2011, and the public record peddled by Brock’s group was simply an error by New York’s board of elections. The phony scandal appears to have been a back door to advance criticisms of Kushner’s prominent White House role.
—QUOTABLE: “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.” -American Bridge spokesman Brad Bainum
