Public And Administrative Law

ATLANTA (AP) — Sen. Lindsey Graham says he plans to appeal a federal judge's ruling that he must testify before a special grand jury in Atlanta. The panel is investigating whether then-President Donald Trump and his allies broke any laws while trying to overturn his 2020 general election loss in Georgia. Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis opened the investigation last year. Prosecutors have indicated they want to ask Graham about phone calls they say he made to Georgia's secretary of state and his staff following the election. Graham must appear Aug. 23. But the Republican South Carolina senator's office said Monday he plans to appeal to the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Former Republican U.S. Rep. Jeff Fortenberry of Nebraska was sentenced to two years of probation, a $25,000 fine and community service for lying to federal authorities about $30,000 in illegal campaign contributions. Tuesday's sentence came as voters in his district were deciding on his replacement in a special election. The 60-year-old resigned in March shortly after a California jury found him guilty of lying to FBI agents about the donations from a Nigerian billionaire. He plans to appeal. Fortenberry's sentencing comes the same day as a special election to fill the rest of his term, which ends in January. Republican state Sen. Mike Flood faces a fellow legislator, Democrat Patty Pansing Brooks, in the GOP-leaning eastern Nebraska district.
