State Sen. Colton Moore (SD 53) has called for an emergency session of the state legislature to review the actions of Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis. Earlier this week, Willis, whose office had conducted a two-year investigation into alleged attempts of former President Donald Trump and his allies to change the outcome of the 2020 presidential election, announced the indictments of 18 individuals. Among those indicted were Trump, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, former Coffee County elections supervisor Misty Hampton, and former chair of the Coffee County Republican Party Cathy Latham.



Sen. Moore sent a letter requesting the emergency session to Gov. Brian Kemp Thursday morning. He also sent a copy of the letter to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. 



The letter, addressed to Kemp, states the following:

“We, the undersigned, being duly elected members of the Georgia House of Representatives and Georgia Senate, and comprising 3/5 of each respective house, pursuant to Article IV, Section II, Paragraph VII(b), hereby certify you, in writing, with a copy to the Secretary of State, that in our opinion emergency exists in the affairs of the state, requiring a special session to be convened under that section, for all purposes, to include, without limitation, the review and response of the actions of Fani Willis.”



Sen. Moore also has circulated an online petition asking citizens to “support and call for an investigation of Fani Willis.” The opening paragraph of the petition reads “Corrupt District Attorney Fani Willis is potentially abusing her position of power by pursuing former President Donald J. Trump, and I am calling on my colleagues in the Georgia legislature to join me in calling for an emergency session to investigate and review her actions and determine if they warrant impeachment.”

The petition goes on to say “The politically-motivated weaponization of our justice system at the expense of taxpayers will not be tolerated. I am demanding that we defund her office until we find out what the hell is going on. We cannot stand idly by as corrupt prosecutors choose to target their political opposition.”



Fox5 Atlanta has reported that Gerald A. Riggs, an attorney who serves as the president of the Georgia State Conference of the NAACP and the president of the Atlanta chapter of the NAACP, has released a response to Sen. Moore’s letter. Griggs’s four-sentence reply states as follows: “As the oldest Civil Rights organization in Georgia, we are concerned about our most  precious right, which is the right to vote. A Grand Jury comprised of residents in Fulton County  found probable cause under Titles 16 and 17 of the Georgia Criminal Code. It is incumbent on us  as a State of Laws to follow the process. We call on the Governor to reject the request to call an  emergency session. Please note that the National NAACP has been alerted." 



Senate District 53, which Sen. Moore represents, is a small district in the northwest corner of the state.



There has been no response from Gov. Kemp regarding Moore’s request.
