A high-ranking Democrat senator was just disqualified. He can no longer vote, and the news has sent shockwaves through Washington, DC.
According to reports, Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) has been declared an “inactive voter” in Connecticut because he does no own a home in the state. He sold it and moved his family to DC.
After selling his home in September, he attempted to register in Old Lyme, a small coastal town where his parents own a home. But it wasn’t long before an election official disqualified him.
“Cathy Carter, the Republican Registrar of Voters in Old Lyme, said Monday that they sent Murphy a notice asking him to confirm his voter application after he registered to vote in September,” noted Breitbart.
“But the notice was returned by the U.S. Postal Service and there was no forwarding phone number or contact information on the card,” continued the story.
Murphy is reportedly seeking to purchase a new home in the Hartford area and will register to vote there. Shockingly, it sounds like he didn’t understand the rules and that’s come back to bite him.
