Florida attorney, Bill Price is now under investigation after he attempted to register to vote in Georgia and tried to recruit other Florida Republicans to do the same ahead of the state’s crucial runoff elections in January.
According to a report by Channel 2 investigative reporter Nicole Carr, Price made the comments in a since-deleted Facebook Live video half an hour after the election was called for Former Vice-President Joe Biden.
“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 also gave the group the address of his brother’s home in Georgia telling them he’s moving there to register to vote and they can do the same if they have any relative or friends who lives in the state.
“It can be done online or you can request your ballot at your new address in Georgia by mail,” Price said. “You just go to the secretary of state’s website for the state of Georgia and register to vote there.”
“If they need a driver’s license, I’m going to get a driver’s license,” he said. “If they need mail, I’m going to have mail there.”
When Carr spoke to Price on Tuesday he denied that he changed his address and told the investigative reporter that he was joking.
“I did not change my voter registration and I don’t have 2 million roommates,” Price said. “But if my humorous comments bring attention to the massive and widespread voter fraud in Georgia, I would submit to you that it’s a good thing.”
But, Price did register to vote the day after he made the speech, using his brother’s Georgia address and swearing to an affidavit that he was a Georgia resident and eligible to vote, Channel 2 confirmed.
Price is now under investigation by Deidre Holden, election supervisor in Paulding County. Holden said they “clearly” know Price is not resident there.
“What kind of message is this sending out to our children and our grandchildren and our neighbors that if you don’t win an election, that you can just go out and steal one?” Holden, asked. “And that’s absolutely unacceptable here in the State of Georgia.”
