New Questions Arise Surrounding Fani Willis Private Lawyer Contracts

As the controversy surrounding Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis becomes more complex and troubling daily, she is now facing scrutiny over her appointment of lawyers connected to her alleged lover, Nathan Wade, for lucrative roles in high-profile cases. This revelation, initially reported by the Daily Caller News Foundation on Wednesday, raises new questions about the propriety of Willis’ ethics and the use of public funds.

Business partners of Willis’ alleged lover made significant contributions to her campaign before receiving these contracts. Terrence Bradley and Christopher Campbell, partners of Wade, collectively contributed over $5,000 to Willis’ campaign. They then secured contracts worth tens of thousands of dollars with Willis’ office.

Campbell, now a partner at Wade & Campbell Firm, has earned $126,070 from the district attorney’s office since 2021. His role as a “Taint Attorney” entails reviewing privileged evidence, a crucial and sensitive job, especially in high-profile cases like that against President Donald Trump.

The situation becomes even more complicated with the knowledge that other attorneys involved in the Trump case also contributed to Willis’ campaign. The close connection between political contributions and appointment to lucrative government contracts points directly at a pattern of trading support for taxpayer funds and professional opportunities for advancement.

John Malcolm of the Heritage Foundation expressed concern over the use of funds allocated for clearing case backlogs for appointing Wade. Furthermore, Atlanta-based criminal defense attorney Philip Holloway questioned the necessity and appropriateness of Campbell’s dual roles as a taint attorney and a “First Appearance Attorney.”

The DCNF also unearthed billing statements that directly contradict Willis’ public claims that all special prosecutors on the Trump case were paid the same rate. That falsehood only goes to further undermines her claims of honesty and transparency in the management of taxpayer funds.

As things stand, Willis’s response to the allegations is due, and a hearing is set for February 15. Additional pressure will now mount on the Georgia judicial system, as its integrity and public trust are at stake. If the state expects to maintain its hold on credibility and respect, the sham prosecution of President Trump should be taking a direct hit in the coming days.
