Potential Republican U.S. Senate candidate Herschel Walker and his wife live in Texas, but she voted in Georgia’s election for president last fall.
The absentee ballot cast by Julie Blanchard raises questions about whether she was allowed to vote in Georgia while living in Texas. It’s illegal for nonresidents to vote in Georgia in most circumstances.
What will potential candidate Walker say?
Here are his general views on the subject:
“Play by the rules…..the American people demand ONLY LEGAL BALLOTS be counted. Anyone manipulating this election should be prosecuted,” Walker wrote on Twitter in November.
Oh, the humanity.
(I wonder if this will go in the Heritage Database?).

They must have a summer home in Texas, Georgia. What’s the problem here?
Lock her up! Lock her up!
Excuse me if I’m ignorant, but is this that Herschel Walker?
Surprise surprise surprise.
I thought the answer is legally required to be “no” when a headline asks a question.
Apparently, “She’s not registered to vote in Texas,” so it’s unlikely she voted there. But it makes no sense for her to maintain a Georgia driver’s license while claiming a homestead exemption in Texas.
