A military wife who said President Donald Trump’s campaign falsely accused her family of “criminal voter fraud” has spoken out, recalling in a new interview the “shock” she felt seeing the accusation, which she said “had been made without any basis in fact”.
“My husband and I have both been accused of fraud,” Amy Rose, a former lawyer for the American Civil Liberties Union whose husband serves as a major in the US Air Force. “We take our duties as citizens very seriously.”
Speaking to Military.com, the Air Force spouse described how she came to learn her family was included in a list of more than 3,000 voters in Nevada, all of whom the Trump campaign claimed “improperly cast” absentee ballots despite not living in the state.
Ms Rose told the news outlet her husband has been earning his PhD in California in an aerospace engineering program paid for by the military, and since he was on military orders, he was not required to change his residence. She said she and her husband were “involved in the community” in Nevada: “Where the military vote, it’s considered their home because as military families we are not really able to set down roots in one place that often.”
