Trump made Florida his official residence. He may have also made a legal mess.

For nearly a quarter-century, President Trump has envisioned boats docking at Mar-a-Lago.

Digging into the catacombs of local records to build an argument against the dock, a small group of loosely aligned preservationists, disgruntled neighbors and attorneys have unearthed documents that they assert call into question the legality of Trumpís much-publicized decision late last year to change his official domicile from Manhattan to Mar-a-Lago and to register to vote in Florida using the clubís address.

According to those documents, and additional materials obtained by The Washington Post, Trump agreed in writing years ago to change the use of the Mar-a-Lago property from a single-family residence to a private club owned by a corporation he controls.

The distinction is significant. The property is taxed as a private club ó not as a residence,

ďItís one or the other ó itís a club or itís your home,Ē

ďYou canít have it both ways.Ē

2. This is a great article!

I read it a little while ago. Wouldn't that be great if Mar-a-barfo lost its license to operate as a club???

He thinks he is invincible.

Well, Al Capone was taken down by the IRS.

You never know.

6. He committed voter fraud.

He has stated he voted in the Florida primary using that as his residence. Not legal as residence, therefore illegal vote.
