Recently, GOP presidential candidate Hirsh Singh has revealed potentially damaging information about Vivek Ramaswamy’s political affiliations and voting history.
Documents obtained from the Franklin County, Ohio Board of Elections indicate that Ramaswamy is not registered as a Republican but rather an “Unaffiliated” voter.
A post on X revealed that Vivek Ramswamy, registered as an Unaffiliated voter in Franklin County, Ohio according to Board of Elections documents, has never voted in a Republican Primary.
A report released by Ohio Legislative Watch on X indicated that Ramaswamy failed to participate in the Ohio state primaries for 2022 and 2023.
“Well this is awkward. GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy, who lives in Columbus, is not a registered Republican in Ohio and has skipped half of the elections since registering to vote in Franklin County,” the account wrote, adding, “His wife is also unaffiliated and skipped the same elections.”
“His parents live in Hamilton County and do not appear to be registered to vote at all, at least not at the address where they claim an owner-occupied property tax reduction,” the post concluded.
These records have been independently reviewed by NBC News:
Ramaswamy, 38, is listed as an “unaffiliated” voter in Franklin County, Ohio, where he’s been registered to vote since November 2021, after he moved to Columbus.
The biotech multimillionaire has described himself as being a “libertarian freestyler” in college.
He’s said he voted for a Libertarian in the 2004 presidential election, but did not vote in 2008, 2012 or 2016, according to Reuters, and has contributed to both Republican and Democratic candidates. He brushed past a question about his sparse voting history during Wednesday’s GOP presidential debate.
Ramaswamy said he went on to become a “hardcore” Trump supporter and voted for him in 2020.
Ramaswamy, who declared his presidential candidacy this past February, has previously defended his failure to vote in his younger days, telling Sean Hannity he hadn’t then because he was “a jaded person in my twenties.”
Adding to the controversy, Federal Election Commission (FEC) data reveals that Ramaswamy was a substantial donor to the Democratic Party in the 2016 Democratic Primary.
FEC records show that on March 29, 2016, Vivek Ramaswamy made a maximum $2,700 ActBlue donation to the Friends of Dena campaign group, which is associated with Democratic Party congressional candidate Dena Minning Grayson.
From Singh’s press release:
A news report in INQUISITR reported in 2019 that the mystery woman who sat behind President Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen and made animated facial expressions as Cohen testified before the House Oversight Committee against President Trump was Dena Grayson. She has been described by Inquisitr as an internet personality best known for criticizing and ridiculing President Trump and amassing followers for this reason.
In a video that is linked from Inquisitr’s website, Grayson can be seen making faces and even lip-synching an answer provided by Cohen simultaneously with him, indicating that she was an insider in the Never-Trumper world. Grayson’s own tweets and now deleted posts on medium.com confirm that she is part of the Never-Trumper world. Republican voters who have been shown this information alongside evidence of Vivek Ramswamy’s donation to her are stunned by the fact that they were led to believe that Vivek Ramaswamy represented their values.
This connection to the far-left world would explain why Vivek Ramaswamy was not part of the TEA Party Revolution which opposed the Wall Street bailouts and the passage of Obamacare. In contrast, Hirsh Singh was part of the Young Americans for Liberty and the TEA Party Revolution and vigorously opposed the Wall Street bailouts and Obamacare. While Hirsh Singh was part of the TEA Party Revolution, Vivek Ramaswamy got a scholarship from the Paul and Daisy Soros Foundation to fund his degree at Yale. Despite Vivek Ramaswamy’s claim that he has no connection to George Soros, Paul Soros who died in 2013 was George Soros’s brother.
“Vivek Ramaswamy’s time as a pretender is up. He may be able to fool all the people some of the time, and some people all the time, but he cannot fool all the people all the time,” said Hirsh Singh echoing Abraham Lincoln’s famous quote.
In an interview with The Gateway Pundit, Tricia McLaughlin, Senior Advisor to Vivek, clarified that the donation to Dena Minning Grayson was not a political endorsement but rather an act of friendship.
“Dena was a friend of Vivek” McLaughlin said.
When asked about why Vivek did not vote in Republican primaries, McLaughlin stated “Vivek is not a party man”.
During the 2024 GOP first debate, Ramaswamy was accused of ripping off Obama’s speech.
