Florida Attorney Under Investigation for Violating Voting Laws in Georgia

HeadlineDec 04, 2020

Florida attorney Bill Price faces a felony investigation after he urged fellow Republicans to violate the law by registering to vote in Georgia. The investigation follows these remarks Price made in early November in a since-deleted Facebook Live video.

Bill Price: “We have to win on January 5th. And I will invite each and every one of you to be my roommate in Georgia. I’m moving to Georgia. I’m changing my voter registration right now. And I’m inviting 2 million people to be my roommate.”

Under Georgia state law, it’s a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison to register to vote as a nonresident without proper qualifications. Price later told reporters in Atlanta he was only making “humorous comments” — but elections officials in Georgia’s Paulding County say Price did, in fact, register to vote at his brother’s address.
