    Florida prosecutors are investigating the voter registration of Donald Trump's campaign chief, though a local election official said there appeared nothing obvious in the record that suggested fraud, NBC News reported.

    Miami-Dade County election officials confirmed that the local state attorney's office requested Stephen Bannon's voter records last week.

    Rosy Pastrana, executive assistant to the county's election supervisor, told NBC News Bannon had not voted in Miami-Dade since registering there in April 2014.

    "There is nothing here that I see that he did wrong," she said.

    Bannon, who lived in California for many years, had no immediate comment.

    A person registering to vote in Florida must swear that they are a legal resident in the county where they register. The Guardian newspaper reported last week Bannon was registered at a Miami home that he rented for his ex-wife.

    Prominent Trump supporter A.J. Delgado told NBC News she visited Bannon there, but an owner of the home said it had been empty for months.
