GA: State bar investigates two of disgraced former president’s fake electors

Source: Atlanta Journal-Constitution

“The State Bar of Georgia is investigating two Republican lawyers who served as fake presidential electors for then-President Donald Trump. The bar association notified Brad Carver of Atlanta and Daryl R. Moody of Alpharetta on July 15 that it has referred complaints against them to the State Disciplinary Board. The complaints were filed in March by a nonprofit legal watchdog that said the attorneys violated professional conduct rules by falsely swearing to be Georgia’s official presidential electors in documents submitted to state and federal officials. The bar investigation is the latest round of legal scrutiny for the 16 Georgia Republicans who served as Trump electors in 2020. The U.S. Justice Department and the House Jan. 6 committee also are investigating their actions. And a Fulton County special grand jury recently notified the electors they’re the targets of a criminal probe. Carver and Moody could not be reached for comment Monday.” (07/26/22)
