Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, December 04, 2019

On Tuesday, the Topeka Capital-Journal reported that Rep. Steve Watkins (R-KS) is facing allegations of voter fraud and election perjury for lying about his residence on his voter registration form. Watkins listed his address for voting purposes as 6021 S.W. 29th St. in Topeka, which is in fact a UPS store. His campaign contends that Watkins made the alteration by mistake, although state officials from both parties are calling for an investigation. "Unless I'm mistaken, no one can live at a UPS store. It cannot be a place of residence," said Republican state Rep. Blake Carpenter, who sits on the House Elections Committee. "This person undoubtedly voted in an election in November for candidates that he had no constitutional right to vote for. This is wrong and illegal.

"His campaign contends that Watkins made the alteration by mistake..."

Unless he shows his true address is some dyslexic version of the address he used I call bullsh on the mistake excuse.

Got to wonder where his actual address is and if it would have affected his right to run for the office he holds and/or to vote for candidates in the district where the UPS store is.
Also for those to lazy to read the article:

"Watkins, who narrowly won the open Second Congressional District in a closely-watched election in 2018, has already faced calls from his own party to resign over another unspecified scandal."

So the Republicans know there is another scandal but won't tell the voters what it is. They are truly Republicans.

Woman in TX goes to prison for 5 years for voting where she was not eligible to vote by a mistake, but the GOP is gonna make this douche walks. I have many many times moved and changed my address, but at no time ever did I mistake a UPS store with my home.

In the original article (behind paywall) it says he had multiple home addresses over the past few years, all in the same congressional district as the UPS store he uses for his mailing address. It would not have affected his right to hold office or vote for federal candidates but it would have changed which local candidates he had on his ballot.
