Lately, Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has directed her attention towards the alleged romantic relationship of Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, who is currently prosecuting former President Donald Trump and his associates over alleged election interference in 2020.
On Thursday, Rep. Greene took the next step in her efforts to expose Willis and her top prosecutor’s scandalous relationship, submitting her formal complaint to the Georgia Ethics Commission. The complaint centers around Nathan Wade, the attorney hired externally by Willis for the Trump case. Greene’s complaint alleges that Wade was involved in an inappropriate romantic relationship with Fani Willis, and accuses him of “potential serious violations” of Georgia state law.
The violations include failure to properly register and submit required lobbyist documentation, which could disclose his interactions with Willis and any “excessive gifts” given to the prosecutor.
In the complaint shared with Fox News Digital, Rep. Greene stated: “Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis stands credibly accused of using Fulton County and federal COVID funds to pay her unqualified, secret boyfriend Nathan Wade–who has never tried a felony case–$250 per hour to collude with the Biden White House counsel and help Fani Willis bring unprecedented RICO felony charges against President Trump and 18 co-defendants.”
“Willis allegedly paid her secret boyfriend a significantly higher hourly rate than another one of her special prosecutors who actually has significant experience,” Greene wrote. “And with the nearly $700,000 Wade has collected in government funds as one of Willis’ special prosecutors, he has allegedly taken her on a luxury Caribbean cruise, a trip to Napa, and other lavish trips.”
Greene alleged “serious violations of the Georgia Campaign Finance Act.” She emphasized that “the public has a right to know who, or what, has influence over the officials employed by their tax dollars.”
Filings by Wade’s wife in their divorce case accuse him of hiding his $700,000 income from her, leaving their joint bank account “routinely overdrawn” despite “the clear inequity in financial circumstances.” The wife has been a stay-at-home mom for 20 years and relied on Wade at that time for financial support.
Greene continued, “For that reason, the Act requires that lobbyists report their efforts to sway the discretion of lawmakers, administrators, and district attorneys in the discharge of their duties. Registration and disclosure requirements shine light on the infamously crooked aims of lobbyists and hold accountable corrupt public officials.”
“On information and belief, Respondent Wade began lobbying Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis on behalf of Wade & Campbell Law Firm in 2021.” She added that Willis awarded no-bid state contracts to the firm and paid “excessive rates” to Wade for his services.
Greene further asserted that Wade “should be investigated for failure to register as a lobbyist, failure to file monthly lobbyist spending reports, failure to disclose gifts made to public officers, the making of excessive gifts to public officers and the making of prohibited gifts to public officers.”
“So no wonder Nathan Wade refused to disclose his solicitation of Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, which blossomed into a sweetheart deal for his law firm as Willis appointed Wade to be a special prosecutor in a thoroughly corrupt case against President Donald Trump.”
Greene continued, “Had Wade done so as required by Georgia law, the public could and would have caught on to Willis’ self-serving gambit to prosecute President Trump, win the adoration of the radical left, and finance an extravagant affair with Wade. For his part in this highly illicit scheme, Wade should be fully prosecuted under the Georgia Campaign Finance Act, ensuring true justice for Georgians.”
She also demanded that the commission “immediately impose” a $10,000 late fee for each monthly report filed 45 or more days late.
