He appeared today in federal court in shackles and cuffs.

Prosecutors accuse Beck of using at least $2 million from his schemes to bankroll his campaign for Insurance Commissioner last year.

Late Wednesday afternoon, Governor Kemp sent him a letter asking for his resignation.

“Your indictment severely undermines your ability to fulfill your official obligations to the people of Georgia.”
