According to a new report from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, state investigators are being urged “to probe whether Republican Senate hopeful Herschel Walker violated the law by receiving a tax break on his Texas home meant for primary residents of that state even as he runs for federal office in Georgia.”
Georgia law is clear that in order to run for office, a candidate must establish residency in the state — which is partially defined by where a person takes their homestead tax exemption and where they intend to live permanently.
In the 5 days since the story broke, Walker has refused to answer Georgians’ questions about this latest scandal.
