ATLANTA — Georgia’s new state ethics commission director is subpoenaing Stacey Abrams’ 2016 gubernatorial campaign bank records. David Emadi, a former Douglas County prosecutor and supporter of Brian Kemp, who ultimately defeated Abrams in Georgia’s nationally watched governor’s race, may also investigate the campaigns of several Atlanta mayoral contenders.
Back in March, a non-partisan ethics watchdog group has filed a complaint with the IRS over Abrams’ political organization. The Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust filed the complaint against Fair Fight Action, Inc., for funding Abrams’ current political activities in an alleged violation of federal law.
Emadi made the comments Thursday after being introduced to reporters. “What I can say about the investigation into the Abrams campaign is, in the relatively near future, I expect we will be issuing subpoenas for bank and finance records of both Miss Abrams and various PACs and special-interest groups that were affiliated with her campaign,” reported Channel 2.
More Political Coverage From Patch
Abrams delivered a widely praised rebuttal to President Trump’s state of the union address earlier this month. Abrams has made no secret of her desire to run for political office again, whether it be against U.S. Sen. David Perdue in 2020 or a 2022 gubernatorial campaign against Brian Kemp, who narrowly defeated Abrams last November. Abrams floated the possibility of a White House run in an interview with Cosmopolitan Magazine, in which she said her goals included a possible presidential campaign in 2028.
