David Shafer, a former Georgia state senator and chairman of the Georgia Republican Party, recently took to Twitter to criticize District Attorney Fani Willis after he turned himself in at Fulton County jail.
Ms. Willis had previously brought charges under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act against President Trump and eighteen others for challenging the 2020 election results.
This decision has been met with criticism from conservatives across the country.
A Fulton County grand jury has returned a 41-count indictment against Donald Trump, with counts of RICO and conspiracy included. David Shafer is accused of various crimes, including RICO (Count 1), Impersonating a Public Officer (Count 8), Forgery in the First Degree (Counts 10, 16, and 40), False Statements and Writings (Counts 12, 14, 18, and 40) and Criminal Attempt to Commit Filing False Documents (Count 14).
David Shafer was taken into custody on Tuesday after being charged for allegedly attempting to influence Georgia Governor Brian Kemp to launch a forensic audit of the 2020 presidential election.
After surrendering to the Fulton County jail, Shafer was booked and processed according to authorities.
Shafer tweeted a photo of his mugshot on Wednesday.
“Good morning!” Shafer said proudly tweeting his mugshot.
