Fani Willis Axed Employee Who Blew Whistle on Misuse of Federal Funds

Andrew Kerr  |  January 31, 2024


Fani Willis may have fired the employee who warned her about mishandling federal funds. But she didn't deny her allegations.

Less than a year into her tenure as Fulton County district attorney, in 2021, Willis met with Amanda Timpson, an employee in the district attorney's office responsible for giving nonviolent juvenile offenders "alternatives to the juvenile court system." During their conversation, a recording of which was reviewed by the Washington Free Beacon, Timpson claimed to Willis that she had been demoted after attempting to stop a top Willis campaign aide from misusing federal grant money meant for a youth gang prevention initiative.

According to Timpson, the aide, Michael Cuffee, planned to use part of a $488,000 federal grant—earmarked for the creation of a Center of Youth Empowerment and Gang Prevention—to pay for "swag," computers, and travel.

"He wanted to do things with grants that were impossible, and I kept telling him, like, 'We can't do that,'" Timpson told Willis in a Nov. 19, 2021, meeting. "He told everybody … 'We're going to get MacBooks, we're going to get swag, we're going to use it for travel.' I said, 'You cannot do that, it's a very, very specific grant.'"

"I respect that is your assessment," Willis responded. "And I'm not saying that your assessment is wrong."

Later in the conversation, Willis apologized to Timpson, and said Cuffee had "failed" her administration.

Less than two months later, Willis abruptly terminated Timpson and had her escorted out of her office by seven armed investigators  .  .  .

If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

You won’t see the story in the legacy media
I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.

Which is why it's becoming known to be "Legacy," the IT definition means too far out of date to repair.

#Breaking News:  House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan has issued a subpoena for Fulton County DA Fani Willis. The subpoena is related to a whistleblower who was fired. 

The whistleblower informed Willis that one of her top aides may be misusing federal funds.  The whistleblower was then fired. 

This comes as Willis is also facing subpoenas for not releasing documents to attorneys and her issues related to the romantic relationship she had with an investigator. 

Do you think she regrets putting herself in the spotlight yet?

The liberal chick on "The 5" keeps correcting the Judge on pronouncing Fani's name.  She says it is Fauny... Not Fanny.  The Judge does not abide!   LOL
