Ga. GOP Caucus Suspends Senator in Fani Willis Fracas

By    |   Friday, 29 September 2023 10:52 AM EDT

The Georgia state senator who demanded that the Legislature hold a special session to investigate Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis has been indefinitely suspended from the GOP caucus, The Hill reports.

Georgia state Sen. Colton Moore called for a special session after Willis charged former President Donald Trump and several of his allies with attempting to overturn the state's 2020 election results.

"Despite the fact 32 of 33 Republican State Senators, the Governor, Lt. Governor, Speaker of the House, and the Chairman of the Georgia Republican Party agree that a Special Session to take action against the Fulton County District Attorney is impossible, Senator Moore has a right to his opinion," Georgia Senate Republicans wrote in a statement released on Thursday.

"However, during his advocacy for his ill-conceived proposal, Senator Moore has knowingly misled people across Georgia and our nation, causing unnecessary tension and hostility, while putting his Caucus colleagues and their families at risk of personal harm," the statement continued.

Moore said in response that he will now call the Georgia Senate GOP caucus the "RINO caucus," short for "Republican in name only."

"The Georgia RINOs responded to my call to fight back against the Trump witch hunts by acting like children and throwing me out of the caucus," Moore said in a social media post. "But I'm not going anywhere."
