Several months ago, Senator Colton Moore stepped up to request a Special Session to address the prosecutorial misconduct of Fani Willis in her indictments of 18 defendants plus President Trump. Following his announcement legislators were quick to take one of two paths: Silence, or to point out the power "granted" to the newly forming Prosecutorial Attorney Qualification Committee.
Some were smart enough to note that the committee, slated to begin in October, could not operate until its rules were crafted and approved by the Georgia Supreme Court.
This week the Supreme Court declined to take up a review of the rules, effectively quashing the committee and making those who said it could address any improprieties by Fani Willis to be either incompetent or foolish.
The PAQC had also issued a statement to legislators on September 30, reminding them that the committee could not begin operating until rules were approved.
Will Jon Burns, Brian Kemp, or other legislators now admit they erred in counting on the PAQC committee to address the concerns around Willis'? Or will they again fade into silence to sidestep the backlash from yet another mis-step by those governing Georgia? Answers to these questions remain to be seen.
