DOJ prosecutors withdraw charges of voter fraud against Mark Meadows and his wife

North Carolina’s attorney general said there is not enough evidence to charge Mark Meadows and his wife with voter fraud.

Meadows, a former congressman, previously served as chief of staff for former President Donald Trump.

Meadows was accused of committing voter fraud after he was allegedly voting in a county where he didn’t live.

Attorney General Josh Stein said that prosecutors with the Department of Justice ultimately decided against charging Meadows.

According to multiple reports, Meadows registered to vote in 2020 at a mobile home in Scaly Mountain – a small community in North Carolina.

Stein said that the charges were dropped because Meadows was engaged in public service in Washington, D.C., and therefore qualified for a residency exception.

Meadows and his wife also signed a year lease for the North Carolina residence, and records reportedly showed that Meadow’s wife was “in and around” Scaly Mountain when they registered to vote there.

Stein said the accusations against Meadows were largely due to his involvement in the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot.

“This attempt to disrupt the peaceful transition of power represents one of the most significant assaults on our democracy in the 246-year history of our nation,” Stein said, adding: “I urge federal prosecutors to hold accountable every single person who engaged in a conspiracy to put our democracy at risk.”
