Fani Willis Investigated by Republican Senators Over Alleged Misuse of Federal Funds – EVOL

The two Republican senators said they want her to provide documents by later this month.

Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) said they are investigating whether Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis misused federal funds, according to a recent letter.

The two Republican senators made reference to several public reports that claimed Ms. Willis’ office, which currently has a case against former President Donald Trump, is squandering federal funds, including for a Department of Justice juveniles program for unrelated travel and frivolous purchases, their letter said.

The Department of Justice “awarded Fulton County nearly $500,000 to establish the Fulton County Center of Youth Empowerment and Gang Prevention,” the letter to Ms. Willis said. “The Center has yet to open and the ‘building meant to house it is closed to the public, its gates padlocked.’”

Their letter cited claims from a former Fulton County District Attorney employee, who was later allegedly fired, that were published in a Washington Free Beacon article earlier this year. “The waste or misuse of taxpayer funds is unacceptable,” the Republican senators wrote.

In another instance, the district attorney’s office reported obtained $2 million in federal funds from a Sexual Assault Kit Initiative but spent much of it
