Reality TV star turned California gubernatorial candidate Caitlyn Jenner finds herself in a story of her own making on Wednesday, as a head-turning comment last week now appears to be untrue.
Last week, Jenner made headlines in telling CNN she didn’t vote in the 2020 election, instead opting to play golf. "I didn't even vote," she told Dana Bash. "Out here in California, it's like, why vote for a Republican president? It's just not going to work. I mean, it's overwhelming."
The candidate in California’s all-but-confirmed recall election, who also told the network she is "kind of on the Republican side," said she "just wound up going to play golf and I said, ‘I’m not doing that.’"
However, records suggest otherwise.
It turns out she did vote in the 2020 election, according to Los Angeles County voting records obtained by POLITICO. While Jenner’s campaign wouldn’t comment on the record when asked about the conflicting accounts, a spokesperson clarified that Jenner voted on "some local issues."
"The spokesperson said Jenner was responding to a question about whom she chose for president in 2020 and said that she didn't support any candidate," POLITICO’s Carla Marinucci reported.
The publication previously reported that Jenner didn’t vote in roughly two-thirds of the elections she was eligible for since 2000.
