Judge Refuses to Revoke Bond in Georgia 2020 Election Case

Fulton County DA Fani Willis suffered a pretty significant loss, at least in her eyes.

Willis has filed to have the bond revoked for the former director of Black Voices for Trump, Harrison William Floyd.

Willis even argued the motion herself, but the judge rejected the motion, only saying that the bond agreement needed to be redone.

Sorry, Fani

Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee shot down the idea of sending Floyd back to jail.

You may recall that Floyd is one of only two black defendants in the case and the only black male, and he was sent to jail by Willis after he surrendered himself.

He was the only defendant not to have negotiated a bond deal prior to surrendering, but much was made of him going to jail because he was the only black male defendant.

Floyd had made some social media posts referring to other defendants in the case, which Willis was trying to portray as threats against these defendants.

Willis stated, “This defendant is very well aware of what happens when he tweets about this case.

“We do not believe it is appropriate for him to make derogatory comments about anyone. He can publicly criticize me all he wants to. I don’t value his opinion.”

Floyd’s attorneys argued that he was “only” referring to them, not attempting to communicate with them, so the posts should not be deemed as threats.

His attorney argued, “These are just people who are expressing their opinions based on his post.

“He has no control over these people.”

McAfee seemed to agree, although he did state that Floyd’s bond agreement should be changed to include the nuances of social media, and it may have to be adjusted in the future as well if they run into more problems.
