The news just doesn’t get very good for Mel Traylor. I assume Cathy isn’t confusing him with Mark Taylor. I expect Mel is about to get thrown off the ballot.
The Georgia Secretary of State’s elections division has challenged the residency of a Democrat who is running to unseat the state Senate’s top Republican.
Mell Traylor, 56, a retired real-estate broker and developer, served in the Georgia Senate from 1975 to 1978 and is a Savannah native. But he has also voted in South Carolina and last year filed legal documents listing his home address in Hilton Head Island, S.C.
Traylor is running against Eric Johnson of Savannah, who is president pro tempore of the Senate.
The Savannah Morning News reports that Traylor showed up an event recently in a Mercedes with South Carolina tags.
What an idiot.
