Georgia State Senator finds himself at odds with his own party as he dares to probe the actions of Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis. The Right Scoop broke the story on September 28, 2023, revealing that State Senator Colton Moore, Vice Chair of the Freedom Caucus in Georgia, has been ousted from the Republican caucus. His crime? Advocating for a special session of the legislature to investigate allegations that Willis weaponized her office against former President Trump.
Moore's bold move to hold Fani Willis accountable has ignited a firestorm within the Georgia Republican Party. The Senate GOP's decision to expel him from their ranks raises questions about where their priorities lie. Are they more concerned about party unity or protecting the integrity of the electoral process?
In a fiery response on Twitter, Moore didn't mince words. He lashed out at what he called:
Georgia RINOs" (Republicans in Name Only) who, in his view, reacted childishly to his call for action. Moore's determination to stand by his Republican principles and the party platform is unwavering, even if it means he now sees some of his colleagues as part of the "RINO caucus."
It's clear that Moore believes he's on the right side of this battle. He asserts that the people of Georgia are firmly behind him as he continues to champion the rule of law. His promise to expose Fani Willis and those he sees as covering for her shows that this is a fight he's not backing down from.
As this political drama unfolds, it remains to be seen how the Georgia Republican Party will navigate these internal divisions and whether Colton Moore's quest for accountability will have broader implications for the 2024 election. One thing's for sure, in the world of Georgia politics, the stakes are high, and the battle lines are drawn.
