Maryland Dem Gov Candidate Refuses Questions On Voter Registration and Residency During Failed Radio Interview

It's a pretty simple question...

Why were you registered to vote in Washington, D.C. AND the state of Maryland?

Did you pay income taxes in the District of Columbia or Maryland?

Those are two pretty simple questions...but apparently not for Maryland Democrat gubernatorial candidate Krishanti Vignarajah. 

Here's more from NBC Washington

"A Maryland gubernatorial candidate dodged questions about her voting during a radio show in Washington, D.C.

Krishanti Vignarajah is one of several Democratic candidates for governor of Maryland and appeared on “The Kojo Nnamdi” show on Friday.

She was asked by News4’s Tom Sherwood, a co-host of the show, why she voted in D.C. while also being registered to vote in Maryland. Vignarajah did not answer the question, despite being asked five times by Sherwood.

The Maryland Board of Elections said question about Vignarajah’s eligibility have been raised, and they have asked the state Attorney General’s Office for guidance."

During the interview, Vignarajah was also repeatedly asked if she had paid income taxes in Maryland while she was a D.C. voter. She refused to answer. 



Bethesda Magazine: 
Krishanti Vignarajah has been registered to vote in D.C. and Maryland since 2010


Krishanti Vignarajah, who announced Wednesday she plans to run for Maryland governor, has voted four times in Washington, D.C., while also a registered voter in Maryland, records show.

Vignarajah, 37, an attorney, first registered to vote in Maryland in 2006 at an address in Catonsville. However, she didn’t vote in the state until the 2016 general election, according to her Maryland voting history, which Bethesda Beat obtained.

While her Maryland registration remained active, she registered to vote in D.C. on Sept. 14, 2010, then voted in the city’s primary the same day, according to her D.C. voting history, also obtained by Bethesda Beat.

...

[Vignarajah spokesman Steve Rabin] said Vignarajah didn’t return to vote in Maryland during elections from 2010 to 2014 because 'sometimes there are situations in the world that don’t allow a person to make an hour drive to Catonsville in the middle of the day.'"
