ATLANTA — Fulton County’s district attorney said Wednesday that she will not prosecute the Georgia legislator arrested for knocking on Gov. Brian Kemp’s office door last month as he was signing the state’s controversial voting bill into law.
“After reviewing all of the evidence, I have decided to close this matter,” District Attorney Fani Willis said of the investigation into state Rep. Park Cannon.
“While some of Rep. Cannon’s colleagues and the police officers involved may have found her behavior annoying, such sentiment does not justify a presentment to a grand jury of the allegations in the arrest warrants or any other felony charges,” Willis said in a statement.
Cannon was charged with obstruction of law enforcement and disrupting the General Assembly, both felonies while trying to witness Kemp’s signing the bill that President Joe Biden has decried as “Jim Crow 2.0.”
