After his home was redistricted from the Third to the Thirteenth Congressional District, the Respondent, the former chair of the Fayette County Republican Party, submitted a voter registration change of address to his rental property, which remained in the Third District after redistricting. However, a witness who resided at that property credibly testified that the Respondent did not live there during the relevant period.  Accordingly, the Respondent was subject to a public reprimand and civil penalty for violating Georgia elections laws.
