The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports:
Gov. Brian Kemp appointed a three-member panel to assess whether a Georgia legislator who served as a fake elector should be suspended after he was charged as part of what prosecutors call a vast “criminal enterprise” to overturn Donald Trump’s 2020 defeat. The governor on Friday tapped Attorney General Chris Carr, House Majority Leader Chuck Efstration and Senate Majority Leader Steve Gooch to review state Sen. Shawn Still’s case.
Still is one of 19 defendants — including Trump — in the indictment brought by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis that alleges the former president led an illegal scheme to reverse Joe Biden’s victory in Georgia. Still was one of 16 Republican electors who convened to cast their ballots for Trump in December 2020 — even as the state’s official Democratic electors met to cast their ballots for Biden. He later won a Gwinnett-based Senate seat in 2022.

Brian Kemp won’t call a special session or activate the commission to investigate the removal of Fani Willis. But he will do that to remove a Republican fake elector from the Senate. Winning! https://t.co/LLTgTvoizO
