Stacey Abrams' 2018 gubernatorial campaign is now the subject of an ethics investigation.

The new director of Georgia's State Ethics Commission said he plans to subpoena bank records from Abrams' nationally watched but unsuccessful 2018 campaign for governor.

The commission also wants to see records from several groups that raised money to help her candidacy.

Abrams' former campaign manager, Lauren Groh-Wargo, said they worked diligently to ensure compliance with the law and accused State Ethics Commission Director David Emadi of launching a partisan attack.

The commission is tasked with collecting campaign contribution and personal finance disclosure reports and investigating potential violations.

Abrams' campaign raised a record $27.6 million during her run.

The commission said they are also investigating all of the candidates in the 2017 Atlanta mayoral race.
