Lin Wood, an attorney who has grabbed headlines in Georgia with allegations of election fraud, is under investigation for potential casting of an illegal ballot in the Nov. 3 general election, an Atlanta TV station is reporting.

According to WSB-TV Channel 2, Wood may have been a legal resident of South Carolina at the time he cast a ballot in Georgia.

The station reported on an email from Wood to a reporter saying, "I have been domiciled in South Carolina for several months after purchasing property in the state in April."

According to the station, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger's office launched an investigation in response to that email.

According to Georgia Election Code, "If a person removes to another state with the intention of making it such person's residence, such person shall be considered to have lost such person's residence in this state."

Wood was one of the highest profile attorneys after the Nov. 3 presidential election to claim the election was stolen from President Donald Trump by widespread voter fraud. Trump himself pressed the same claims.

Election officers, state officials, dozens of judges, the Trump Administration and the U.S. Supreme Court rejected the claims — which came to climax on Jan. 6 when Trump supporters stormed the Capitol in an unsuccessful effort to keep Congress from giving final approval to the results. Democrat Joe Biden won by 7 million votes.

Trump is facing a Senate trial next week after he was impeached by the House for his role in the insurrection.

On Tuesday, WSB reported, Wood sent the station an email saying, "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."
