Some of the 'Hamilton' cast that confronted Mike Pence didn't even vote

You've likely seen the story about how the cast of the smash Broadway play "Hamilton" gathered on stage to lecture Mike Pence about diversity in a very underhanded but overly publicized way. It's become the elephant in the social media room, with stories being generated about it left and right.

And with each story released, the Hamilton cast looks a shade worse. On Monday, The Blaze showed just how differently former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was greeted by the cast when they threw a fundraiser for her. Needless to say, it was much kinder. In fact, tears were shed at her presence.

Which makes this recent discovery all the more awkward.

According to RadarOnline.com, records revealed that some of the cast members on stage didn't vote for Clinton this election. In fact, some of them haven't voted at all in years.

Records show that Brandon Dixon, who plays Vice President Aaron Burr and read the offending cast statement to Pence, didn’t even vote in the 2012 presidential election!

Javier Muñoz, who plays the title role of Hamilton, registered to vote in 2006, and voted that year, but hasn’t since.

Seth Stewart, who plays Thomas Jefferson, voted in the 2008 presidential election but then used his constitutional rights to skip out in 2012, according to his voting record.

Anthony Ramos Martinez, who plays Hamilton’s eldest son Philip, registered to vote in 2012. But the 25-year-old hasn’t ventured into the voting booth since then.

Nigerian-born actor Okieriete “Oak” Onaodowan, who portray James Madison, registered to vote in 2005 and also failed to cast a vote after that.

This puts the "Hamilton" cast's actions in an even worse light, as those who complained against Pence didn't even see fit enough to take action and get out to vote for Hillary Clinton, the woman they raised money for.
