Georgia Special Election Called for House District 55
The Office of the Secretary of State has given notice of a special election for state House District 55. The election will be held on June 16, 2015, with a runoff election on July 14, 2015, if needed.
The vacancy was created by the April 9th resignation of Tyrone Brooks, the same day he pleaded no contest in federal court to five counts of mail and wire fraud and guilty to one count filing false tax returns.
Brooks was indicted in 2013 after prosecutors claimed he used nearly $1 million worth of donations meant for charities to pay personal and family expenses.
