Wood held rallies railing against the proclaimed theft of the election. According to WSB-TV, Wood told the secretary of state’s office that he had been living in South Carolina since buying property there in April, a statement that prompted the state to investigate.
Wood said in a statement to the station, “I have been a resident of the State of Georgia since 1955. I changed my residency to South Carolina yesterday. 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 said he did not vote in the state’s Jan. 5 runoff election.
