- In the filing, Roman alleges that people with knowledge have seen Willis and Wade out and about in Atlanta in a romantic manner, and that they took cruises together.
- Neither Willis nor Wade have denied the allegations, with a spokesman saying they will respond in court. Willis lashed out at her critics in a recent speech, during which she accused them of playing “the race card” in attacking her and Wade, who are both Black. She also defended Wade’s credentials without naming him and repeatedly referred to herself as “flawed” and “imperfect.”
- Credit card statements revealed in divorce filings between Wade and his estranged wife show Wade purchased airline tickets for himself and Willis for trips to San Francisco and Aruba. We don’t know whether Willis reimbursed Wade for the tickets.
- The allegations have raised questions about Wade’s qualifications for the job. Wade didn’t have much prosecutorial experience, and Willis has said she actually looked for higher-profile lawyers to take the job before hiring Wade. He worked in family law and was a municipal judge. Since hiring him to be lead prosecutor in the Trump case more than two years ago, Willis’s office has paid his law firm more than $653,000.
