The complaint alleges that Everett lives in Clarkesville and Atlanta, but not at any of the addresses provided in official filings to the State Ethics Commission.
The Atlanta residence is rented, though paid for with campaign funds since 2006. The home in Albany that Everett has used in filings is actually owned by his son, Michael C. Everett. A homestead exemption has been filed to this effect as well.
Monds writes, “It is very reasonable to ask Mr. Everett to come forward and provide evidence of his residency. I ask that you use all means within your power to expeditiously resolve any questions that exist concerning this matter.”
It may be too late to file a challenge. I’m not sure. Otherwise, it’ll be interesting to see how the Secretary of State’s office handles this. Especially since there is no Democrat running in this race and the questions over partisanship in the Jim Powell residency case.
