A report released Wednesday alleging he violated the public's trust called for interim DeKalb Co. CEO Lee May to resign.
The investigation stems from an FBI inquiry into whether a company won a county contract in return for a contribution.
corruption and a stunning absence of leadership in the DeKalb County
government are a disgrace to its citizens and an embarrassment to our
state,” the report said.
Former GA Attorney General Mike Bowers
and his lead investigator Richard Hyde, said officials "delayed and
impeded the truth seeking process" from the start of the report.
In at least two instances, the report said, "May and others in the administration conspired to actively block our efforts."
Bowers and Hyde specifically cited an instance where the moved up the investigators' deadline from Oct. 6 to August 26.
the investigators said they couldn't finish the report by that date,
Bowers and Hyde said May tried to terminate it. In fact, the
strongly-worded, 40-page report is based only on info gathered before
that "fabricated" deadline.
"It's a bad situation, it needs strong words," Bowers told CBS46.
