Georgia Prosecutor Fani Willis and Nathan Wade Under Scrutiny for Alleged Misconduct

Georgia prosecutor Fani Willis and her former partner Nathan Wade are facing ethics complaints from the American Accountability Foundation (AAF) regarding their court testimony on allegations of an ‘improper’ affair.

The AAF has urged the Georgia State Bar to initiate disciplinary proceedings against Willis and Wade, citing violations of the Georgia Rules of Professional Conduct. The complaints stem from allegations that Wade lied under oath about his relationship with Willis and that Willis admitted to using campaign funds for personal expenses during her testimony.

In their complaint against Willis, the AAF highlights her testimony before Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee on February 15, 2024. During questioning, Willis acknowledged using cash for various expenses, including reimbursing Wade and making purchases at Publix. The AAF contends that Willis’ admission constitutes a violation of Georgia Campaign Finance law, as it prohibits candidates from using campaign funds for personal purposes.

The AAF asserts that Willis’ testimony indicates the creation of a “fungible” slush fund where campaign funds were commingled with personal finances. This, according to the complaint, included reimbursing Wade for leisure travel expenses.

The AAF has called for disciplinary action against Willis and Wade, including the revocation of Willis’ law license and permanent disbarment. They argue that such measures are necessary to uphold the integrity of the legal profession and ensure accountability among those entrusted with upholding the law.
