The agency charged with investigating Georgia judges has elected a new leader: former U.S. attorney, congressman and Libertarian presidential candidate Bob Barr.

Gov. Brian Kemp appointed Barr to the Georgia Judicial Qualifications Commission’s Investigative Panel in 2019, replacing Athens attorney Edward Tolley, who was appointed by former Gov. Nathan Deal. As the new chair of the seven-member panel, Barr replaces William P. “Pope” Langdale III, who served in that role for the past two years.
