NBC News reported:

The New Jersey attorney general’s office is investigating the eligibility of the liquor licenses of three Trump-owned golf courses in the state following former President Donald Trump’s felony conviction in New York, officials confirmed Tuesday.

The three properties under investigation by Attorney General Matthew Platkin and the Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control, which is part of the AG’s office, are Bedminster, Pine Hill and Colts Neck.

“ABC is investigating the impact of President Trump’s conviction on the above-mentioned licenses and declines further comment at this time,” an agency spokesperson said in a statement.

The Trump campaign says the ex-president does not own the liquor licenses, so there is nothing to review. However, New Jersey law states that a liquor license can be revoked if someone is convicted of crimes of moral turpitude. Does it matter if the licenses are in someone else’s name, but Trump owns the properties?

We’ll find out.

Felony convictions have consequences even if the convicted felon is an ex-president. Trump has already had to surrender his guns, even though he illegally kept one in Florida for weeks after his conviction

What we see in both big and small ways is that the life of a convicted felon impacts the life of Donald Trump.
