Georgian Foreign Secretary Brad Raffensperger is investigating Bill Price, a Republican attorney in Florida, to encourage other Floridians to move to Georgia and vote in the upcoming US Senate runoff.
Appeared on a Facebook live video on Nov. 7, Price told Republicans at a meeting that he was moving in with his brother in Georgia to register for the crucial runoff, and encouraged them to go to the Peach temporarily as well State to pull, reported WSB-TV.
The election, scheduled for January 5, will determine which party controls the Senate.
He recorded that Republicans "must do everything to win these elections".
“If that means you have to change your address for the next two months, so be it. I'll do this. I'm moving to Georgia, ”he said.
Raffensperger said on December 3 that he would not tolerate Price's scheme or any other form of electoral fraud.
"Make no mistake, people who try to undermine the integrity of the Georgian elections will be investigated and prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Those who move to Georgia to vote in the Senate runoff elections without intention to stay, commit a crime that can be punished with imprisonment and heavy fines. They will be found, investigated and punished, ”he explained.
