Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis reportedly fired an employee, Amanda Timpson, after Timpson raised concerns about the misuse of federal grant money by a campaign aide.

Timpson’s whistleblower complaint alleges wrongful termination, and she claims she was demoted after voicing concerns about the misuse of funds.

The report also details instances where Willis’s office used federal funds for unauthorized purchases.

“He wanted to do things with grants that were impossible, and I kept telling him, like, ‘We can’t do that,'” Timpson said.

“He told everybody … ‘We’re going to get MacBooks, we’re going to get swag, we’re going to use it for travel.’ I said, ‘You cannot do that, it’s a very, very specific grant.’”

“I respect that is your assessment,” Willis had said, “And I’m not saying that your assessment is wrong.”

There are additional allegations regarding Willis’s hiring of Nathan Wade and potential misuse of funds.

Timpson has filed a defamation suit against Willis and plans to file a similar suit against the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office.

This case raises concerns about ethical violations and the misuse of public funds.

“I wanted to make sure she knew because I didn’t want any scandal to be related to her. She immediately cut me off in the middle of my sentence and demoted me from the director of juvenile diversion to a file clerk,” Timpson said.

“I knew it was me against the entire office,” she said. “If I didn’t get any hard evidence about what I was saying, everyone was just going to write me off.”

“I am 4’11” on my best day,” Timpson said. “Who is so scared of me that you have to walk me out of the building by seven armed investigators? I’ve never had a warning about any negative behavior that would warrant someone feeling threatened by me.”

“My case and Nathan Wade’s case are very similar when you break them down point by point,” Timpson said. “Ethical violations, abuse of power, and the misuse of county, state, and federal funds.”
