Rep. Cory Mills (R-FL) introduced a bill called the “Against Federal Funds for Allowing Inappropriate Relationships Act,” or the AFFAIR Act, to prevent federal funds from going to state or local chief prosecutors convicted of corruption or other unlawful activity.

The bill is a response to the alleged affair between Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis and special prosecutor Nathan Wade.

Willis has refused to recuse herself from the investigation into Trump’s legal efforts to challenge the 2020 Georgia election results.

“Not only was Fani Willis’ relationship with Nathan Wade extremely inappropriate and creates concerns around a conflict of interest, but it also potentially shows violations of bias against political opposition, and lawfare for election interference,” Rep. Cory Mills said. “Under no circumstance should federal funds be sent to a state or local office if there is unlawful and unethical activity taking place.”

Willis is seeking to dismiss subpoenas targeting her for scrutiny over alleged misappropriation of county and federal funds.

“Our nation was founded on the steadfast tenets that liberty and justice — including the fair and equal application of the law — are crucial to ensuring the preservation of our constitutional republic,” Mills said.

“I’m proud to introduce the AFFAIR Act to ensure American taxpayer dollars will not be misappropriated or weaponized due to unlawful and unethical activities.”

Representative Mills has written to the Georgia State Bar General Counsel to discuss potential violations of professional conduct and criminal acts related to the affair.

“Reports of an ongoing affair and improper sexual relationship between District Attorney Willis and Special Prosecutor Wade have been widely reported by public media. If true, not only would this be extremely inappropriate for a supervisor and subordinate to have such an intimate relationship, but it would also give rise to possible violations of bias, conflict of interest, and potential kickbacks,” Mills wrote.

“Wade’s alleged sexual relationship with District Attorney Willis provided him with preferential treatment. Specifically, Willis appears to have violated attorney ethics rules, by which she is bound, to appoint her inamorato to the government payroll,” Mills said.

“The reports of misconduct coming out of the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office are grotesque. No one with that much power should even give off a scent that they are misusing it. There are checks and balances put in place to prevent situations like this,” he added.
