Christian Smith Attends Event Despite Willis A No Show

Fulton County, Georgia, is embroiled in controversy yet again, and it, yet again, involves the Democratic District Attorney Fani Willis.

Willis, who made headlines for bringing forth an election interference case against former President Trump, chose to skip a major debate hosted by the Fulton County Democratic Party, leaving her opponent to debate an empty podium.

But let’s start from the beginning. Willis made a name for herself when she charged Trump and 18 co-defendants with racketeering over allegations of trying to overthrow the 2020 election.

However, her decision to hire Nathan Wade, a man with whom she allegedly had a romantic relationship, as the lead prosecutor in this high-profile case raised serious questions about her judgment and ethics.

A judge eventually ordered Willis to either remove herself from the case or fire Wade, as there was a “significant appearance of impropriety” in their relationship. Wade ended up resigning, but the damage was already done.

Fulton County Judge Scott McAfee stated that there was a “significant appearance of impropriety that infects the current structure of the prosecution team” but stopped short of finding an “actual conflict of interest.”

But this is not the only issue that has been plaguing Willis. Her decision to skip the county’s first Democratic Party debate is a clear sign of her lack of accountability and transparency. Instead, she chose to co-host an event celebrating “Crime Victims’ Rights Week” with an Atlanta city councilwoman.

Fulton County DA candidate Christian Wise Smith faces ‘no show’ Willis on an empty stage.

It’s hard to overlook the fact that Willis conveniently chose this event over a political debate, leaving her opponent on the stage alone to criticize her for her actions. This is a clear indication of her arrogance and disregard for the democratic process.

This begs the question, why is Willis still leading in local polls despite all the controversies surrounding her? It could be because she is riding the wave of her prosecution of Trump, touting herself as the only district attorney with the “courage” to do so.

However, this case has raised doubts not only about her judgment but also about her motives. Is she using this case to further her political career instead of upholding the law and serving justice? The fact that her affair with Wade was only made official after the charges were brought against Trump and his co-defendants raises serious concerns about the timing of their relationship.

Willis may deny any wrongdoing, but the truth is, her actions have only brought shame and embarrassment to the Fulton County District Attorney’s office. Fulton County deserves better than a District Attorney who puts her personal interests above the interests of justice and the people she is supposed to serve.

The Democratic primary on May 28 will be a crucial test, and the people of Fulton County must make their voices heard by electing a District Attorney who will do what is right for the community.
