(PartiallyPolitics.com) – In Georgia Republican lawmakers are looking for ways to punish Fani Willis, the District Attorney for Fulton County, who brought forth charges against 19 defendants, including former President Donald Trump. As part of their attempts, they are also considering employing a new law that enables the creation of a commission that is going to have the right to punish or dismiss prosecutors.
The Prosecuting Attorneys Qualifications Commission is going to be set up in October. The law that allowed its creation was signed by GOP Gov. Brian Kemp and it allows the commission to punish any prosecutors that they have found to be in violation of their job responsibilities.
On Monday, Gwinnett County State Sen. Clint Dixon (R), stated that as soon as the commission is set up he would be filing a complaint that is going to be focused on Willis and her recent indictment against Trump and his allies. He further argued that the indictment is the result of Willis wanting to turn into a “leftist celebrity.”
He added that following the appointment of the committee in October they are going to have them probe into Willis and her attempts to weaponize the justice system against Donald Trump.
Democrat Rep. Dar’shun Kendrick had also warned during the debates about the bill that it was likely that it would be employed against Willis. She further argued on Monday that Dixon’s threats had not been a surprise. She further argued that the irony of this case is that Willis had been doing her best to prosecute all those who were in any way involved with attempting to interfere with the election in Georgia.
