Georgia’s GOP-controlled Senate voted Friday to form a special committee to investigate Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis amid revelations she had an ‘improper’ affair with subordinate counsel.
The special committee would have subpoena power to investigate Willis over allegations she hired special prosecutor Nathan Wade for the case because of their alleged romantic relationship.
The Senate voted 30 in favor and 19 against the resolution.
Republican Sen. Greg Dolezal introduced the measure, saying that “the multitude of accusations surrounding Ms. Willis, spanning from allegations of prosecutorial misconduct to questions about the use of public funds and accusations of an unprofessional relationship, underscores the urgency for a thorough and impartial examination.”

“We owe it to the public to ensure transparency, accountability and the preservation of the integrity of our justice system,” he added.
According to court documents filed last month by Michael Roman, a Trump co-defendant, Fani Willis, who brought election interference-related charges against Trump, has been having an “improper” affair with special prosecutor Nathan Wade, whom she hired to help prosecute the 2024 GOP frontrunner.
According to the court documents, Wade, who has no RICO and felony prosecution experience, billed taxpayers $654,000 since January 2022.
Roman’s filing alleges that Wade billed Fulton County for 24 hours of work on a single day in November 2021, shortly after being appointed as a special prosecutor, and that Willis financially benefited from her alleged lover’s padded taxpayer-funded salary by taking lavish vacations together on his dime.

Byrd is particularly critical of Willis for indicting Republicans “who used their First Amendment rights to question the results of an election – something other Democrats have done in the past when they post important elections,” Byrd said. Notable examples include Al Gore, Hillary Clinton, and Stacey Abrams, according to Byrd.
Additionally, Byrd highlights a potential conflict of interest in Willis hiring a “potential paramour” in the case against Trump.

Byrd also points out that a judge previously prohibited Willis from investigating Lt. Gov. Burt Jones due to her financial support for his opponent during his campaign for lieutenant governor.

“The First Amendment is still the bedrock of this country and Fani Wills can overturn it because she has Trump Derangement Syndrome,” Byrd said. “It’s time our state lawmakers draw the line in the sand and put an end to her refusal to uphold the Constitution.”
