Did the GOP Get ‘Georgia’ Dem to Sign For Package at ‘Real Home’ in Tennessee?

This may be the absolute pinnacle of political trolling by the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC).

The GOP delivered – and appears to have convinced Lucy McBath (D-GA) to sign and accept – a gift package at her ‘real home’ in Tennessee.

McBath has denied claims that she takes up residence in the Volunteer State, insisting that she only “briefly” lived there and that she “recently” moved to Georgia.

McBath, however, allegedly signed for the care package at an address listed on public records in Rockford, Tennessee. The package included Memphis barbecue sauce, Tennessee whiskey coffee, and a Tennessee Volunteers hat.

The ‘Georgia’ Democrat has faced accusations of false residency before and after her election in 2018, peaking after Cobb County revoking three years of homestead exemptions because she and her husband could not prove their primary home was in the Peach State.

Cobb County cited having out of state/county license plates and out of state/county voter registration as a reason for the revocation.

“We’ll say it again for the folks in the back: Lucy McBath is a resident of Tennessee, not Georgia,” NRCC spokeswoman Camille Gallo insists. “Instead of going to Georgia to meet and help her constituents, Lucy McBath jetted out of DC to her real home in Tennessee.”


McBath has denied she lives in Tennessee and not in the district she represents in Georgia.

“During the 2016 presidential cycle, when Lucy was traveling extensively and for family matters, she briefly changed her residency to Tennessee,” a campaign statement read.

After refusing to comment on the care package incident, McBath finally issued a statement on Twitter claiming it was her elderly mother-in-law who signed.

Delivery information obtained by Fox News shows two instances on the FedEx signature which indicate it was signed by an “L. McBath.”

“Is your mother-in-law’s name also Lucy?” Gallo countered in an email statement. “Because that’s who signed for the package.”

Gallo also noted that McBath refused to deny being at home in Tennessee and the homestead revocation has yet to be addressed.
