When Georgia special prosecutor Nathan Wade was first seen in public after a scandal broke in which he was accused of having had an affair with Fulton County D.A. Fani Willis, he was holding a gun, and he did not deny the allegations.

Wade didn't answer a question by a reporter about whether he had spent any of the $654,000 he was paid for working on the Donald Trump case to take Willis on luxury vacations.

But he also didn't deny the allegations that he had an affair with Willis or that she hired him for the exorbitant sum even though they were involved.

Georgia is an open-carry state, and no permit is needed to carry, so Wade was not doing anything wrong by carrying the gun.

Allegations of the affair came on Monday in a court filing by Michael Roman, a co-defendant in the Trump election interference case. He did not have any concrete proof for the allegations.

Wade is in the middle of a divorce from his wife of 26 years, and Willis has apparently been subpoenaed to testify in the proceedings.
