4. Blanchard Has Owned Her House in Atlanta Since at Least 1991; Walker Used This Address When He Filed His Campaign Papers

Blanchard’s address and voter status came under investigation in 2021. She voted in Georgia during the 2020 presidential election but had an absentee ballot mailed to her and Walker’s home in Texas. As the Associated Press reported, Georgia election investigators ultimately dropped the case because although she and Walker spend time in Texas, Blanchard “has a Georgia driver’s license and vehicle registration, owns property in Atlanta and has utilities accounts in her name, has a business in Georgia and pays state income taxes.”
