The following article, GOP Catches Dem In Big Lie About Residency After She Signs for Gift at Home In Another State, was first published on Flag And Cross.
If Michael Jackson taught us anything, it’s that “a lie becomes the truth” – as he famously noted in arguably his best song, “Billie Jean.”
The GOP expertly trolled a Democrat Congresswoman and caught her in a major falsehood.
Georgia Rep. Lucy McBath claims she lives in Georgia.
So then, why would she sign for a package at home – in TENNESSEE!?
From Fox News:
Georgia Democratic Rep. Lucy McBath was the target of some creative trolling by the Republican Party over her widely disputed claim that she actually lives in Georgia, after receiving and signing for a gift basket the GOP sent to her address — in Tennessee.
McBath, a racial justice activist who defeated Republican incumbent Karen Handel in November, has been dogged with questions since the election campaign on whether she actually lives in the state she now represents.
The state’s Cobb County Tax Commissioner’s Office, which refrained from issuing a decision during the election due to appeals, confirmed last month that McBath didn’t meet the requirements to call her Cobb County home her primary residence for the three tax years leading up to the election, meaning she was a Tennessee resident when she was elected to Congress.
Here was the gift:
Proof she signed for it:
Speaking of he GOP and crossing state lines, Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz supports President Trump like few others in Congress.
What’s interesting is that Gaetz is considering leaving Florida to head across state lines to take down Democrat Senator Doug Jones – in Alabama.
This would be possible due to the Yellowhammer state’s “one-day residency requirement.”
Here’s the scoop…
From The Hill:
The rumor had been bouncing around the Capitol for weeks but took a more serious turn in recent days when Gaetz began privately discussing the idea with fellow lawmakers.
A GOP lawmaker noted, “He’s talking about running for Senate in Alabama. They have a one-day residency requirement there. POTUS would probably endorse him.”
Sources close to Gaetz, 36, said that “people in Trump’s orbit” are personally encouraging the sophomore congressman to run for the Senate seat now held by freshman Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.). Those Trump allies are pointing to Alabama’s liberal requirement that people can run for the Senate so long as they are 30 years old and have been a resident for a minimum of one day.
For 22 months, Democrats said there was “actual evidence” of collusion. Their principle Russia narrative was not truthful or credible.

I am convinced that at the state level, we have folks who are nimbler, more creative, more capable of meeting the needs of our citizens than the morass we find too frequently in Washington.
It turns out that in our country, freedom is popular. I’m for more of it. pic.twitter.com/CXQw73U3IN

Senator Gaetz has a nice ring to it for conservatives. To see him leave one state for another would be nearly unprecedented, which makes it all the more interesting.
Stay tuned for more!
