A prosecutor on Friday accused the former guard, who was convicted of murder, of lying in the neck of George Floyd, who illegally voted in the Florida election while living in Minnesota.
Prosecutor Dan Helm sent Orange-Osceola State Prosecutor Aramis Ayala a letter containing former voter Derek Sauv’s voting record, asking him to pursue the charges. The Orlando Sentinel reported.
“When living in Minnesota, working there, and paying taxes, Derek Chuew cannot claim residency in Orange County. His home, residence and place of residence is located in Minnesota, not Florida,” wrote Helm, who is competing for the role of election supervisor in Pinellas County.

The Minneapolis Police Department, which worked with Sauv when he was kneeling on Floyd’s neck during his arrest, said its police officers were not required to have a residence in the city. According to its website.
The Minneapolis Police Department was in need of residency for its officers – a bill that repealed the “Stanek Residency Independence Bill” was signed into law in 1999, and then Governor Jesse Ventura banned municipalities in the state from requiring employment. According to MinnPost.com.
