Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) has filed an ethics complaint against Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, alleging Willis is receiving bribes from a “secret boyfriend”, according to a report by Fox News.

In the complaint, Rep. Greene claims that outside attorney Nathan Wade has given Willis “excessive gifts” and engaged in a romantic relationship with her.

“Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis stands credibly accused of using Fulton County and federal COVID funds to pay her unqualified, secret boyfriend Nathan Wade—who has never tried a felony case—$250 per hour to collude with the Biden White House counsel and help Fani Willis bring unprecedented RICO felony charges against President Trump and 18 co-defendants,” Rep. Greene stated in the complaint, according to Fox.

Rep. Greene posted on X on Thursday, “I just filed a complaint with the Georgia ethics commission against DA Fani Willis’ alleged boyfriend Nathan Wade for potential violations of state law.”

The complaint alleges that Willis granted Wade a significantly higher salary than normal and has accompanied him on lavish vacations. His connection to the Trump case, Rep. Greene claimed, means he should have registered as a lobbyist and filed the proper paperwork.

Rep. Greene added that Wade “should be investigated for failure to register as a lobbyist, failure to file monthly lobbyist spending reports, failure to disclose gifts made to public officers, the making of excessive gifts to public officers and the making of prohibited gifts to public officers.” She demanded the ethics commission impose a $10,000 late fee for each monthly lobbyist report filed late.
