Georgia State Senator Michael Williams, a former Georgia governor candidate, has been indicted on fraud charges.
The indictment accused Williams of insurance fraud stemming from a report he made regarding stolen computer servers from his campaign office. He reportedly lied to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and made a false insurance claim on the servers.
His campaign manager has stated that the servers were used to mine for cryptocurrency, which was part of Williams’ business. The office was shared between his business and campaign.
Williams finished fifth in the Georgia GOP Governor primary this past year following a campaign that was mostly based around loyalty to President Trump and running various political stunts, including a “deportation bus.”
