On October 21, 2023, the Antioch Republicans held a fundraiser featuring 2020 election denier/right-wing attorney David Shestokas, who was sanctioned by a judge in 2023 for filing a frivolous election challenge, and is currently representing an indicted co-defendant of Donald Trump’s in the Georgia election interference case.
