Watch: Florida attorney busted for voter fraud in Georgia — and encouraging other Republicans to join him
A Florida attorney is facing a new state investigation after election officials allege he attempted to register to vote in Georgia for the upcoming Senate runoff. He also posted an instructional video to social media encouraging other Republicans to follow suit, according to WSB-TV.
On Nov. 7, shortly after the presidential election was called for President-elect Joe Biden, attorney Bill Price posted a video to Facebook as he vented to Bay County, FL, Republicans about the unfavorable election outcome. As Republicans like Price grappled with the upsetting loss of the White House, he also stressed how imperative it is for Republicans to maintain control of the Senate.
In the now-deleted Facebook video, Price admitted that he planned to change his residency for the next two months to vote in Georgia for the runoff election.
"We absolutely have to hold the Senate and we have to start fighting back, and we have to do whatever it takes," Price said in the video. "And if that means changing your address for the next two months, so be it. I'm doing that. I'm moving to Georgia and I'm gonna fight and I want you all to fight with me."
Price went on to share that he would be moving to his brother's home in Hiram, GA, for the next two months. Then, he went a step further by announcing the address. As he did, members of the group began jotting down the address.
"We can truly register at that address?" one woman asked.
"Sure," Price answered.
Another woman asked, "And can it be anywhere in the state of Georgia you can register? So if you've got cousins, dogs, cats that live somewhere else, it doesn't need to be one particular county?"
"Yep," Price answered. "This is going to be a statewide election on Jan. 5th. I'm gonna be voting for Kelly Loeffler?" (In the recording, his voice indicates a question, as he mispronounces the senator's last name). "And David Perdue."
Deidre Holden, an election supervisor in Paulding County, GA. said Price is not registered to vote in the county.
@stphnfwlr I'm sure .@GOP Florida attorney Bill Price would agree with you. He's running a relocation scam to vote… https://t.co/vpS8FBj833— #TraitorTot Trump LOST yugely bigly (@#TraitorTot Trump LOST yugely bigly) 1606998206.0
