HOLD UP! Herschel Walker just admitted on his taxes that his primary residence is in Texas.

From Shaun King on Facebook:

Herschel Walker isn't even hiding it. On his 2022 taxes he literally received a tax credit from Texas because he listed it as his primary residence.

I can think of a million reasons for voters in Georgia to not support this man, but now we understand that he's doing the exact same thing that Dr. Oz just tried to pull in Pennsylvania. Oz literally lives in New Jersey and tried to pretend that he lived in Pennsylvania.
And voters rejected it...and Dr. Oz.

This race shouldn't even be close, frankly.
In every measure that matters, including the most basic issue of residency, Raphael Warnock is the MUCH better candidate.

He had NO primary or permanent residence in Kansas. He had a rental home,he would stop in there from time to time and set and chat with his renters and they'd call it good. He had a home in Kansas but didn't live in it.

The requirements are set by the Constitution and just says you must be a resident of the state. Doesn't say how long. Doesn't say anything about owning property. It was written before even the uber rich had homes all over the US. It's really no obstacle for anyone other than the political embarrassment and not even that to a party that has no shame and an electorate who puts no value in it.

43. Years ago Senator Pat Roberts from KS

was challenged by his Democratic opponent about his residency in the state because he lived close to
Washington DC and very seldom visited KS. He proved he was renting a living room recliner from one
of his republiCON friends. That was good enough proof in this red state.

61. Unfortunately...

...what you're saying is wrong because you're conflating the Constitutional requirement and a state's residency requirement, which are statutory among the 50 sovereign states. Georgia has no residency requirement per se, but it does have residency requirements for taxation, social services, driver's licenses, etc. You may vote in Georgia after being there for one day, but that likely won't allow you to register to vote in any of its counties, which require proof to support you are living in the state.

Neither am I talking about taxation, social services, driver's licenses, etc. So please don't accuse me of conflating things I never mentioned and wasn't talking about.

The requirements to run for Congress are spelled out in the Constitution and state laws don't trump them regardless of what the states say about all the other things you are conflating. The states can regulate primary elections, but they can't contradict the Constitution when it comes to the general elections to Congress.

74. I wasn't talking about voting either...

...and you are conflating the two.

Article I, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution says"

No Person shall be a Senator who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty Years, and been nine Years a Citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State for which he shall be chosen.


The states make the laws that determine who is legally an "inhabitant", also called a "resident" of that state. The federal Constitution doesn't define "inhabitant" or "resident", which leaves it open to the states to define what those mean. Otherwise I could go South Carolina to campaign when I want, be an "inhabitant" on Election Day, and, if I win, I become senator.

If what you suggest was possible, candidates would never have their residency challenged, and wouldn't bother to even to pretend to move to a state as part of seeking this office. There are so many things standing in the way of what you're saying being true, it wouldn't merit a response if there wasn't the possibility someone might believe what you wrote. And if you don't understand the states can make laws on issues where the federal constitution is silent, that's a huge misunderstanding.

If the Constitutional requirement was the end of it, there would be no use of nominating petitions, filing fees, or primaries. In any case, you are wrong, and it doesn't take a genius to see what you're trying to do here. I don't play those games.

104. The game you are playing is called obfuscation and you got called out for it

Once again you are trying to introduce irrelevant things while simultaneously pretending that's what I'm doing as if anyone is stupid enough not to notice.

I'm talking about one thing. Not two separate things. Not voting, not primaries, not petitions, not registering to vote, not driver's licenses, or any of the other crap you are trying desperately to get to stick to the wall.

The qualifications for running for congress which are enumerated in the Constitution for anyone to plainly see. You haven't told shit about how Georgia does it. All you've done is bring up nonsense that has nothing to do with it and you're simply doubling down on it here after astonishingly and dishonestly claiming you didn't bring it up to begin with.

Feel free to cite the statute that prevents anyone from running for US Congressional office in a general election in the state of Georgia based on a length of habitation requirement. As yet you haven't because you can't. It's really that simple. Desperately trying to make it more complex while offering zero in the way of substance is quite telling.

Itís not really a loophole. The authors of the Constitution debated the requirements and rejected any length of inhabitation requirements. The intent was they live there and are accessible to the people they represent while not in DC.

24. Some lawyers need to jump on this

Isn't it a federal crime to make a false statement on a tax form?
If so, is Walker a resident of Texas or a resident of Georgia?
If he's a resident of Georgia, then hasn't he committed a crime by claiming to be a resident of Texas?
Also, because the Constitution requires anyone running for the US Senate be a resident of the state in which they are running at the time of the election, if Walker is a resident of Texas, shouldn't he be disqualified?
Methinks some lawyers should jump on this one.

30. This is state level, though. If he claims it and the state gives him the ok, it's probably legal.

You can be a resident of many states but can claim only one as your primary resident. So that's the big carpetbagger invite across states, I would guess.

He's a resident of GA that -- unless GA has a primary residency law -- is probably okay with this.

You're right. Fani Willis' team should immediately look into this. She might be able to take him to court and have him immediately disqualified.

election requirement under GA law.

36. I've just read the Sec of State's PDF on that and cannot find anything about a primary residence

requirement. Only "Location" proof, whatever location means. But I'm sure some legal beagles are running this info down.

I feel really bad for anybody with brain damage, but... the guy has genuinely profound brain damage. He just does. And yet the GOP ran him for the SENATE. Itís beyond parody... itís practically abusive, as well as politically cynical.

no matter his brain status. You and I both know he was placed into the GA election as a bag man for the pro-corporate trump/Kemp/Koch camp, right?

By now we have to see things the way THEY do, not the way we have wanted them to be. Ya gotta let go of all, and I mean ALL, your assumptions about Republicans and their owner/donors when it comes to House and Senate AND statehouse elections.

92. it's pretty clear that Walker is qualified

to run for office in GA. (residency is determined by state requirement, is mostly fairly lax, and has nothing to do with owning property) The only question of legality here lies in whether Texas code allows him to claim 'primary residence' for property owned there. And again - requirement is determined state by state, but generally the 'requirements' are not all that stringent. (you generally only get tripped up if you are trying to claim 'multiple' primary residences)

96. perhaps.

But then - I'd like a little more definition in what you think residency (fairly loose construct in general) should require - in order to rescue democracy.

Many people spend large periods of time working, earning income, or just plain residing in places other than their 'home.' (and that includes people that don't own multiples). Fishing crews in Alaska, oil workers in the Gulf, long haul truckers, artists, athletes, college students, military personnel ... Do you intend to make residency and voting privilege more difficult and constrained for all these people? I'm not sure if that means a step forward for democracy. My own preference (by a long margin) - lies not in prohibition and restrictions - but would be that 'we the people' would just stop voting for people that are unrepresentative of our interests.

And, of course - for self evident morons like Mr. Walker.
(do the good people of GA really need to be constrained from voting for such obviously unfit candidates? and what does that say about democracy?)

97. Sure.

I think a primary residence is where any elected candidate calls home. Where the candidate knows his/her state's people, their problems and concerns about the future.

When they carpetbag into state they do injustice to those other people...

...Fishing crews in Alaska, oil workers in the Gulf, long haul truckers, artists, athletes, college students, military personnel ... Do you intend to make residency and voting privilege more difficult and constrained for all these people? I'm not sure if that means a step forward for democracy.
... they corrupt the democratic structure already in place for primary residents' primary and general election voting, by corrupting their trust in democracy that is of, by and for the people. These people who work elsewhere but are IN their states don't feel that their consent of the governed means much to these carpetbaggers.


That is who Senator Warnock is. A primary resident of the state he seeks to represent.
Walker, Oz, Cheney and Hawley are not representative of the states they've sought to represent.

98. well, I cordially invite you to draw up a list of

'requirements for residency' to be submitted to the state legislature - in order to safeguard democracy.

In my own mind - the problem is much less a matter of 'carpetbaggers' (which I think is a judgement best left to the voters) - and much more a matter that so many American voters would even consider casting a vote for such a F-ing moron.

Therein lies the real (or greater) danger to democracy.

99. Not being a lawyer, I'll see what can be done about that.

I hear you about carpetbaggers and morons. But in your mind, recall that carpetbaggers have corrupted the structures of democracy voting for over 160 years of U.S. history. They groom voter gullibility. They groom moron candidates.

The situation in GA directly connects to slavery by other names. The ultimate goal of carpetbaggers is to clear the plain for the occupation of big money rule. It is the very point of the Koch network picking tools like Walker and Lake. Charles Koch said, " I don't just buy influence, and hope candidates do and say. I buy the right to tell them what to do and say." Also, "If you don't have the courts, you got nothing."
(from Jane Mayer's Dark Money)

This isn't about stereotypes or stupidity politics as the ultimate danger to democracy.
This is about corporate capture of democracy from candidate down to voter -- the goal being to make quasi transient work slaves think they're free on a corporate campus the slaves thought was their country. The absolute tell of the game afoot, is when Trump and Lake say, "if you don't get out there and fight like hell, you're not going to have a country."
