( – Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia has officially lodged an ethics complaint against Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, citing her alleged failure to disclose her connections and expenditures related to Nathan Wade, a key figure in former President Trump’s Georgia criminal proceedings, with whom she admitted to having a “personal relationship.”

In the four-page complaint filed with the Georgia State Ethics Commission, Greene accuses Willis of violating the Georgia Government Transparency and Campaign Finance Act by omitting details of her interactions with Wade, including purported “luxury vacations” they took together. These accusations surfaced after a co-defendant in the Trump case, Mike Roman, filed motions claiming Willis and Wade traveled to various upscale destinations, raising concerns about potential conflicts of interest.

However, it remains uncertain whether the Ethics Commission holds jurisdiction over Greene’s grievances. While the commission does review failures to disclose financial reports, it typically does not delve into matters of ethical or moral conduct, nor does it investigate the misuse of public funds.

Greene, a staunch supporter of Trump, argues that the substantial payment Wade received for his involvement in the case makes him an “authority of the state,” thereby necessitating disclosure of any financial transactions between him and Willis. Yet, the law cited by Greene pertains primarily to the disclosure of payments related to official duties, rather than personal expenditures.

Willis’s office has refrained from commenting on the matter thus far. However, both Willis and Wade previously addressed Roman’s allegations, stating that their relationship began after Wade’s employment and emphasizing that any personal travel expenses were evenly split between them.

In her complaint, Greene alleges that Willis’s failure to disclose these trips constitutes a breach of ethical standards and casts doubt on her ability to prosecute Trump and his co-defendants fairly. She further accuses Willis of colluding with White House counsel and calls her conduct “inappropriate, unethical, and potentially illegal.”

This latest complaint marks Greene’s ongoing efforts to challenge Willis’s role in the Trump case. Last month, she urged Georgia Governor Brian Kemp and Attorney General Chris Carr to investigate Willis for an alleged conflict of interest. Despite these challenges, Willis remains steadfast in her position, pushing back against attempts to sideline her from the proceedings.
