A Georgia woman charged in connection to the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol as well as a fake state elector busted in a plan to overturn the 2020 presidential election were purportedly listed as "county captains" for Republican Senate hopeful Herschel Walker's campaign.

Walker's campaign sent out a press release in August listing Mandy Robinson-Hand and Kim Godwin as "county captains" despite their problematic pasts, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Tuesday.

The publication also noted that when they asked Walker's campaign about the two picks, the webpage was mysteriously deactivated and rerouted to a page asking for donations.

It's the latest example of headaches plaguing the former football star's campaign as it heads into the final two months before Election Day.

Godwin was among a list of electors that have been informed they could face charges for their involvement in the scheme to overturn the 2020 presidential win in former President Donald Trump's favor.

Robinson-Hand and her husband, Charles Hand III, of Butler, Georgia, were arrested by FBI agents in March and charged with four misdemeanors, including entering and remaining in a restricted building, two counts of disorderly conduct, and one count of parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a capitol building, according to the Department of Justice. They were arrested after tips, surveillance, documentary footage, and social media posts linked them to the Jan. 6 attack.
