Georgia Secretary of State Opens Investigation Into Lin Wood

'They’re trying to destroy me because I’m revealing a level of corruption from top to bottom...'

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has opened an investigation into pro-Trump attorney Lin Wood and whether he voted illegally in the November election.

Raffensperger said in a statement that the ongoing investigation is focused on whether Wood was “a legal resident when he voted in November in light of an email he sent to [WSB-TV reporter] Justin Gray saying he has been domiciled in South Carolina for several months.”

He added that under Georgia state law, “If a person removes to another state with the intention of making it such person’s residence, such person shall be considered to have lost such person’s residence in this state.”

In the email to Gray, Wood said he purchased property in South Carolina last April and had been living there for several months.

He denied changing his permanent residency before the November election, though, saying he had been “a resident of the state of Georgia since 1955.”

“This is pure harassment by the Georgia secretary of state because I have revealed credible evidence of election fraud on the part of Brad Raffensperger,” Wood told the Atlanta Journal–Constitution.

“They’re trying to destroy me because I’m revealing a level of corruption from top to bottom,” he continued. “Brad Raffensperger’s got a lot of problems with people who were not legitimate citizens of Georgia. I’m not one of them.”

Wood has been an outspoken critic of Raffensperger and Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, accusing them of coordinating with Democrats to steal the state’s election from former President Donald Trump.

He filed a lawsuit against Georgia in an attempt to block the state from certifying its election results and urged Republican officials to undertake a hand recount.

State election records reveal Wood voted in Georgia’s presidential election during early in-person voting on Oct. 14, but did not vote in the January Senate run-off elections because he did not believe they were legitimate.
