Trump-Loving GOP Senator Josh Hawley Doesn’t Even Live in the State He Represents
There are two interesting facts about GOP Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley; the first one being that he’s a major-league conspiracy theorist, the other one being that he doesn’t even live in Missouri. It appears he’s been taking a page from President Donald Trump, who tried to register to vote in Florida while claiming his “legal residence” was in Washington, D.C.
Hawley, The Kansas City Star, and Alternet will have you know, has been living in his $1.3 million home in the Northern Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C., while claiming his sister’s home address to vote from in Missouri.
But people at his office became huffy and waved off The Star when the publication asked them about this. And apparently, this isn’t the first time Hawley has played pin the tail on the address. Because, according to the newspaper, Hawley’s family is one heck of a travelin’ family.
Per Alternet and The Star:
“Hawley lived in Columbia during his stint as a professor at the University of Missouri Law School and two years as Missouri Attorney General. But in March of 2019, the couple sold the Columbia home, according to the Boone County Recorder of Deeds.”
“That same month Hawley and his wife were added as co-owners to his parents’ home in Springfield, according to the Greene County Recorder’s Office. That property was sold in June.”
“A little more than a month after the sale of the Springfield property, Hawley changed his voter registration to his sister’s home in Ozark (Missouri.) He is also using the Ozark address for his registration with the Missouri Bar.”
But of course, he’s got an explanation by way of using a tinfoil hat conspiracy theory that somehow blames “some George Soros Democrat group” for it. Because of course. Makes perfect sense to me. And as you’ll see below, the Twitterati agreed.
One day after I exposed more liberal #BigTech censorship, some George Soros Democrat group is attacking me for – wait for it – building a new home in Ozark, MO. 🤣 House is coming along great! We love Ozark. Dem losers, thanks for playing pic.twitter.com/csDOsD9teT

Oh, of course: it was the Jews that made Senator "Real American" Hawley leave Missouri, live in a $1.3 million mansion on the East Coast.

Glad you're building a house when you, @gop, @nrsc, and @senategop refuse to vote on relief and help for the people of MO who need it. How many sick & dead there from COVID? Let's have you suffer as they have and those with no income 10,000 times please? Thank you. Reality reset.

I’m one of your constituents and I don’t appreciate you calling me a loser. I can’t wait to vote against you. Again.

You are calling the people who pay your salary and healthcare from their hard earned wages losers while citing conspiracy theory. You aren’t fit for the seat you hold.

Fun drinking game: take a shot every time a Republican randomly mentions George Soros

wait, where do you live now? Because I'm wondering if where you primarily live and where you vote are the same place. I sure hope so, because, well you know… voter fraud is running rampant these days.
