A former candidate in the Georgia governor’s race who featured a “deportation bus” in his GOP campaign has been indicted on insurance fraud charges.
  
The indictment handed up Tuesday by Hall County authorities was obtained by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution . It accuses state Sen. Michael Williams of making a false report that computer servers were stolen from his campaign office shortly before his last-place finish in the May Republican primary.
  
The Forsyth County Republican declined to comment Thursday. His former campaign manager, Seth Weathers, tells the newspaper the indictment was a “political witch hunt from the beginning and has zero merit.”
  
Williams based his campaign on loyalty to Donald Trump and a series of publicity stunts, including a “deportation bus .”
  
Hall County District Attorney Lee Darragh says Williams is making arrangements to turn himself in.
