Yamiche Alcindor, a White House reporter for “PBS NewsHour,” has been accused of casting a ballot in Florida without authorization.
The American Accountability Foundation, a research organization whose goal is to “shine light on waste, corruption, and malfeasance in the federal government,” filed the lawsuit.
According to The Washington Examiner, the group submitted the complaint last week and demanded that the Florida Department of State look into Alcindor.
“Public information indicates that Mrs. Alcindor is a resident of the District of Columbia, and therefore ineligible to vote in the State of Florida. Despite this, Mrs. Alcindor is registered to vote and has voted in the State of Florida,” according to the complaint.
Alcindor cast a mail-in ballot on Monday in a Florida election, according to AAF on Twitter.

Her spouse Nathaniel Cline is a registered voter in Washington, DC, the group noted.
Some news: I moved to DC this week to cover social safety net issues and how Trump's administration impacts everyday people's lives.

“This raises the obvious question of why Mrs. Alcindor does not vote at the [D.C.] address like her husband. There is no evidence that Mrs. Alcindor and Mr. Cline do not intend to spend the remainder of their lives together as a married couple,” according to the complaint.
“How can Mr. Cline believe that their permanent residence is [the D.C. address] while Mrs. Alcindor supposedly believes it is [the Florida address]?”
The complaint continued, “If individuals are allowed to pick and choose where they vote, based on personal preference and not on their residency, then residency requirements become hollow. More importantly, when out of state residents vote in Florida, the votes of actual residents of the State of Florida are diluted and their constitutional right to vote is undermined.”
Alcindor is renowned for drawing large audiences when she talks, as she did in March 2021 when she said that “the perception of [President Joe Biden] as a moral, decent man,” was to blame for the influx of illegal immigrants at the border.

About a month after that, she commented on the then-ongoing trial of Derek Chauvin, who was facing charges of murder in the death of George Floyd.
As the prosecution and defense were making their closing arguments, Alcindor tweeted, “Chauvin’s lawyer said it flies in the face of common sense to say Floyd’s death was not caused at least in part by his underlying conditions or drug use. This argument is in direct contradiction to the prosecution’s case which says believe your eyes, Chauvin’s knee killed Floyd.” CONTINUE READING…
