There is a rumor circulating in the 17th Senate district and in the halls of the capitol that a voter in that district may have filed a residency challenge against the Senate candidacy of the former Senate Ethics Committee Chairman, Mike Crotts. Those challenges are filed with the Elections Division of the Secretary of State’s office.
Georgia law clearly states that a candidate for the legislature “shall” live in the district one year before the general election in November. I am told that Crotts is using a Rockdale County address where other people actually live, rather than the address of the $800,000 home on GA Hwy 20 where we all thought he actually lives.
The plot thickens. Stay tuned.
