NBC News Reporter Yamiche Alcindor Accused Of Illegally Voting In Florida

A conservative group has raised questions about possible election fraud by left-wing reporter Yamiche Alcindor.

A conservative group has raised questions about possible election fraud by left-wing reporter Yamiche Alcindor.

According to the conservative website The Federalist, the American Accountability Foundation filed a complaint that asserted Alcindor is an active voter in Broward County, even as she admits and demonstrates that she lives in Washington, D.C.

In its complaint, signed by AAF President Thomas Jones, the group noted that Alcindor “does not have the present intention of making the address [in Miramar] where she is registered to vote her permanent home, as required by Florida law.”

AAF provided Alcindor’s Washington address and pointed out that she and her husband “have evidenced an intention to make that their permanent home.”

They highlighted a January 2017 tweet in which Alcindor announced she had “moved to DC” to cover the Trump administration.

The Federalist reported that Alcindor worked for The New York Times when she moved to Washington. She then jumped to PBS before moving on to her current employer, NBC News. She proved to be one of President Donald Trump’s fiercest critics, often asking incendiary questions that did little to cloak her liberal activism.

Despite that, she voted in Florida in both the 2020 primary and general elections. There is no allegation that she also voted in Washington.

Alcindor, the AAF argued, “is a professional journalist and could have drafted her language to make it clear that she was only ‘temporarily’ moving to the District of Columbia while she remained a permanent resident of the State of Florida. Instead, she stated that she “moved to DC.”

“Further Mrs. Alcindor has recently and repeatedly referred to living in Miami in the past tense,” the complaint added.

AAF further pointed out that Alcindor’s husband, Nathaniel Cline, is registered to vote in DC.

“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. If one assumes that Mrs. Alcindor and Mr. Cline are happily married spouses who intend to live together for the remainder of their lives, how can Mr. Cline believe that their permanent residence is [in the District of Columbia] while Mrs. Alcindor supposedly believes it is [in Miramar]?

“The obvious answer is that both of these things cannot be true.”

The AAF added, “The totality of the evidence suggests that Mrs. Alcindor is illegally registered to vote, and has illegally voted, in the State of Florida. We urge you to immediately open an investigation of Mrs. Alcindor’s apparent fraudulent voting.”

“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,” the complaint concluded.

“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.”

Ironically, Alcindor frequently criticized Trump’s complaints about voting fraud, The Federalist recalled.

As one example, from August 2020, Alcindor tweeted, “President Trump is again claims (sic) there is fraud in mail-in voting when there is no evidence to back it up.”
