MTG Launches Ethics Complaint Against Anti-Trump DA Fani Willis

Republican Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene filed an ethics complaint against Fani Willis, the district attorney for Fulton County, alleging that Willis had lied about and misused public monies.

Greene said that Willis was trying to cover up her affair with special prosecutor Nathan Wade by violating public disclosure regulations.

In her inquiry into the former president, Willis enlisted Wade’s help in gathering evidence of his alleged efforts to influence Georgia authorities to reverse his 2020 election defeat.

Georgia’s State Ethics Commission received a four-page complaint from Greene in which she claimed that Willis had paid her secret lover a far higher wage than another of her special prosecutors, who had substantial RICO expertise.  Wade spent about $700,000 on a Caribbean cruise, a vacation to Napa, and other extravagant excursions.

Willis must declare her wealth on a regular basis since she is a public official in the state. In 2019, 2021, and 2022, Greene said that Willis had failed to do so.

The congresswoman noted that this pattern of conduct indicates Fani Willis’ willful or willful disobedience to her legal responsibilities and the law in failing to submit such disclosures on several occasions. It is believed that Nathan Wade paid for her trip to Napa Valley and a luxurious Caribbean cruise.

According to Greene, the world would have been able to learn about her secret lover, Nathan Wade, if these revelations had been made public. This would have exposed her improper connection and damaged her baseless case against Trump and the other 18 defendants.

In court records filed in early February, Willis acknowledged a personal connection with Wade.  But she denied any wrongdoing and intended to remain involved in the Trump case.

Willis claimed that her connection with Wade did not exist in November 2021, when Wade was appointed, even though they had been friends and colleagues since 2019.  In court documents, she further asserted that Michael Roman, one of the 18 co-defendants who accused Trump of impropriety, and his attorneys failed to provide evidence to back their claim that any personal relationship influenced the use of prosecutorial discretion in this case, including the decisions to charge or recommend a plea.
