DECATUR, Ga. – DeKalb County will receive $3.6 million in mass transit improvements through a federal grant issued to the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA). The award will enhance public transportation in the county and includes new buses.

“This investment in DeKalb County transit infrastructure and rolling stock will begin to bring more service into south DeKalb County, while also improving the emissions with cleaner CNG fuel and improving our rider experience from the central into the eastern and southern segments of our county,” said DeKalb County CEO Michael Thurmond.

MARTA was awarded $3.6 million in funding for buses that will expand capacity in central and south DeKalb County. The funding from the Federal Transit Administration will upgrade and replace 40-foot diesel-fueled buses with 60-foot Compressed Natural Gas buses. The new and environmentally friendly buses will be stationed in central DeKalb County at the Laredo Bus Depot in Scottdale. They will be used to enhance service on MARTA Route 121, which connects riders to the Avondale Station and the city of Stone Mountain. The bus route travels the Ponce de Leon Avenue corridor and is one of DeKalb’s most heavily used routes.

“As we build out More MARTA across the region, we will continue to partner and enhance existing service options with the jurisdictions in our core service areas. Our goal is to simply become and maintain the status of being one of the best transit and transportation systems in the nation,” said MARTA General Manager and CEO Jeffrey Parker.

“This grant will allow MARTA to provide more service in DeKalb County, along one of our busiest routes,” said MARTA Board of Directors DeKalb County representative Frederick L. Daniels.

Based on customer feedback and service analysis, MARTA also modified several bus routes in DeKalb County to improve overall service, on-time performance, ridership and safety. Routes 39 (Buford Highway), 116 (Redan Road) and 121 (Memorial Drive/North Hairston Road) schedules have been adjusted to enhance weekday and weekend service.

The county, in partnership with DeKalb Municipal Association, has also engaged the Atlanta Regional Commission to produce a Transit Master Plan to provide a comprehensive vision for public transit in DeKalb. The Transit Master Plan will review additional public transportation service expansions and serve as Phase I of the DeKalb Comprehensive Transportation Plan Update that will be completed in 2019.

DECATUR, Ga. – The DeKalb County Fleet Management Department was awarded the “Best Fleet” in North America Award sponsored by 100 Best Fleets in America and Governing Magazine. The county earned first place out of 38,000 public fleets and was recognized for distinguished customer service, sustainability practices and employee training.

“The DeKalb Fleet Management Department exemplifies all that is right about public service,” said Tom C. Johnson, founder of the 100 Best Fleets in America program. “The county has developed best practices that reduce the need for unscheduled repairs, maintenance costs and negative environmental impacts.”

Fleet Management maintains repair services for a fleet of approximately 3,600 county vehicles and equipment. In the past year, the department has maintained a 99 percent positive feedback rate on customer service surveys and implemented green initiatives that include upgrading the fueling program, opening an environmentally friendly above-ground fuel site and reducing gasoline and diesel fuel consumption. The county also trained nearly 300 drivers on idle reduction which limits engine running time and improves DeKalb’s air quality.

“DeKalb County is pleased to recognize the leadership of Robert Gordon, deputy director of fleet management,” said CEO Michael Thurmond. “His commitment to excellent service, environmental stewardship and creating a high-trust culture is an example for all of us to follow.”

Fleet Management which is part of the Department of Public Works includes 1,600 full- and part-time employees and a budget of $460 million.

“We keep DeKalb rolling,” said Deputy Director Gordon.” Winning the 100 Best Fleet Award shows that the county is providing value to the citizens we serve and that we are focused on doing the right thing.”

Started nineteen years ago, the annual 100 Best Fleets in America program recognizes high-trust, high-performance fleet operations in North America and Canada. Criteria for the award includes use of technology, performance, collaboration, service turnaround time and accountability. This award was recently announced at the NAFA Institute and Expo.

DeKalb Planning & Sustainability (Building Permits)

It never ceases to amaze me…

They cut down a 200 year old Red Oak.

This is where that same tree used to be. Now, it is a parking spot.

There is supposed to be a tree ordinance in DeKalb County, GA where you cannot cut down a tree this size without an arborist deciding that the tree is ill.

There was a dumpster there for 2 weeks the first time a dumpster was brought in. The toilet under the dumpster was there the second week, and when the dumpster left, the toilet stayed in the yard.

When we complained, they told us that we need to be more tolerant! What? A toilet sitting in the yard for 2 weeks, one of those weeks there was a dumpster there? Are you shitting me? No pun intended.

We were also told, that they have the right to work. Yes they do. BUT
You have people with no knowledge of construction doing major structural work to a house that they don’t intend on living in.

One look at the side of the house, tells you that behind that vinyl siding is a major problem.

Not to mention that vinyl siding does not wave up and down, but it sure as hell don’t curl upward for no reason.
But we have to be more tolerant.

A house that fifteen people in the neighborhood, who had all lived here 20+ years, and knew the history of the house, signed and notarized a petition to have the house demolished because no one has lived there for 30 years, the house is 77 years old, and the lines from the house to the septic tank dissolved 20 or more years ago.

But that’s ok, we must be more tolerant. A rat infested, hole with no toilet in it (No the toilet has not been replaced), with anywhere between 6-12 people working at a time, for 6-10 hours a day, and we are supposed to be more tolerant, because they have a right to work.

What is going to happen to the unsuspecting single mother moves in, thinking she has finally found a home, and the whole thing collapses on her and kills her and her child?

YOU’VE GOT IT, DEKALB COUNTY SUX!!!

Police: 9 arrested at ‘pro-white’ protest in Georgia

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation-now/2016/04/23/police-arrested-pro-white-rally-georgia/83435094/?utm_source=feedblitz&utm_medium=FeedBlitzRss&utm_campaign=usatoday-newstopstories

STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. — Nine people were arrested Saturday after a counter-protest at a “pro-white” rally turned physical, police said.

A group called Rock Stone Mountain scheduled what the called a “pro-white” rally at Stone Mountain park outside of Atlanta to “protest efforts to erase the white race.” According to the group’s Facebook page, the rally was expected to draw just under 500 people, but early on, only about 25 to 30 people had gathered.

All Out Atlanta, an anti-racism group, organized a counter-protest for the same time and location. Both groups had permits from the park and were sanctioned to protest from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Police made provisions to keep the groups in separate sections of the park to ensure the rallies stayed peaceful, but efforts to do so quickly deteriorated.

According to John Bankhead, a spokesman with the Stone Mountain Park Police, nine All Out Atlanta protestors were arrested before noon Saturday.

Authorities say the protesters were asked to take off masks in compliance with a park ordinance. When the protesters refused to comply, they were arrested.

Bankhead said other All Out Atlanta threw rocks. Bankhead himself was struck with a rock, he said.

Authorities were continuing to keep the two rallies separate, but Bankhead said some of the All Out Atlanta protesters were trying to get through blocked areas leading to the Rock Stone Mountain rally.

On Saturday afternoon, park authorities said attractions would be closed for the remainder of the day, but the main park entrance and walking trail would remain open.


Amazing!  I live in Stone Mountain, and did not know anything about this before or after it happened.  Only in DeKalb County!

Stone Mountain Georgia Privacy Violations

100_2994My last post stated that there were no other cameras on the property, except the one viewing our property.

Now go back and look at the angle of the camera before, and the angle in the picture above.  Now, it is pointed directly at us.  Amazing, yes?

Guess what????

100_3002 After I stated that, the camera pointed more toward our property, and another camera was added to a tree, in yet another neighbor’s property. Another property where no one lives, makes one wonder if the owner of that property knows that his property is being used to spy on us.

Also, the owner went to the property after dark the other night, and had a really big ladder on the truck.  He took the ladder off, and I don’t know what tree he climbed, but I would imagine, that now, there is  a third camera spying on our every move.  I guess if someone, in an answer to a lawsuit, claims that you have been trespassing, they have to get evidence from somewhere, huh?

AJC: Rhonda Cook Article: Grand jury hears more evidence in DeKalb judge case

Grand jury hears more evidence in DeKalb judge case

http://www.myajc.com/news/news/local-govt-politics/grand-jury-hears-more-evidence-in-dekalb-judge-cas/nnJz5/#3af79632.4016292.735826

By Rhonda Cook – The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

For the second time in a week, a special prosecutor laid out evidence for a grand jury that allegedly proves DeKalb County Superior Court Judge Cynthia Becker made false statements to the Judicial Qualifications Commission.

Prosecutor Parks White is asking the grand jury to return an indictment against Becker, who resigned March 1 after 14 years on the bench. In a letter announcing her planned retirement, Becker wrote that she was leaving the bench because she was getting married and moving to another county.

Becker allegedly made the false statements during an interview at a law office in Marietta, which made it a Cobb County matter.

White, the district attorney for five counties in northeast Georgia, was appointed special prosecutor when the Cobb district attorney recused his office because three of his top prosecutors were once practiced before Becker as assistant district attorneys in DeKalb.

He left the Cobb courthouse Thursday without commenting. Grand jury proceedings are secret by law.

Becker’s attorney, Brian Steel, also declined comment Thursday.

Becker is accused of making false statements when she was questioned about her sentencing of former DeKalb County Schools Superintendent Crawford Lewis, which the the JQC was investigating.

Two years ago, Lewis was charged with felony racketeering and faced the possibility of up to 65 years in prison. But two weeks before his trial was scheduled to start, Lewis agreed to testify against his two co-defendants. — Pat Reid, the school district’s former chief operating officer, and Reid’s ex-husband, architect Tony Pope. In exchange, prosecutors agreed to let him plead guilty to misdemeanor obstruction of the investigation of school construction contracts and to recommend a sentence of 12 months probation.

Prosecutors and Lewis’ lawyers said Becker agreed to the deal.

Yet, when it came time to sentence Lewis, Becker ordered him jailed for 12 months. She said the deal was void because his testimony was not truthful. Becker also ordered Lewis locked up immediately and refused to consider an appeal bond until she returned the following week from an out-of-town trip to attend the Army-Navy football game.

Nine months later, the JQC started an administrative investigation into Becker. Last September, she was called to to the Marietta law office of JQC member Robert Ingram to answer questions. Becker insisted several times that Lewis never asked for a bond.

__________________________________________

On a personal Note, on personal experience…

Personal Note: Judge Becker was the Judge that gave GA Power easement over our entire property, after we proved that GA Power had forged and falsified documentation so that they could claim to have an express grant easement. There was no Dr. Robert Wells in 1937, 1942, or ever. There had been Dr. James Wells, but he passed away before that date.
The Wells Family lived in the Brown-Wells house on Ridge Avenue, which is where the Stone Mountain Historic Society is currently located.

Remember, if you are going to lie, don’t lie about one of the most known families in an area. Also don’t lie about the people’s names in the family. The Wells Family Tree is great! When I saw it, it went back to the 1560’s in England, I believe it was, and the Wells Family came here almost on the Mayflower. A lot of History and Heritage in the Wells Family. Very well documented, and the property the Wells Family had owned, was sold and became Stone Mountain Industrial Park, on the other side of town is where their property had been.

Georgia Power must have paid Judge Becker a lot of money to find against all of our evidence. Including evidence that showed the documents were signed by a ball point pen, which did not come out until the late 60’s. May she get what she deserves!!!

Nightmare of Sheppard Rd., Stone Mountain, GA

07 15 2015

On June 15, 2015 (Check the Date on the Warning, it shows June 13, 2015. The date she was  at our property,  was July 17, 2015) while getting a cup of coffee, at 08:37 am, I saw someone messing around our gate. I went to see who it was, it was our less than friendly Code Enforcement Officer, J. Brown, leave the Warning on the ground, she screamed at us at the top of her lungs, in front of a whole bunch of neighbors,  and went huffing off.

One might wonder why she parked across the street for the visit.   According to the recording at DeKalb County Code Enforcement Office, they open at 08:30 am. She was at our house at 08:37 am, and it takes 20-30 minutes to get there from here.

mail from J Brown
The Warning was also mailed to us, from Austell, GA, not Decatur.   Notice the date on the postmark, July 17, 2015, the same day she visited us.

07 15 2015

The Gate and Fence code enforcement claims we need permits for, has been in place for 20 (twenty) years. We are not on County sewer. Our septic system is in tip top shape.

Looks like a fraudulent claim to me.  Makes me wonder who she is friends with.  It also makes me wonder why someone would make such a fictional claim against us.

Photo – DeKalb County Courthouse Judge Jeryl Debra Rosh was elected in 2004 and has served as Judge of the Probate Court of DeKalb County since January of 2005. Formerly she served the Probate Court in various capacities since 1985, including Associate Judge, and Acting Judge. She is responsible for appointing and supervising personal representatives of estates who administer the assets of deceased residents of DeKalb County. Additionally, Judge Rosh’s duties include the appointment of guardians for both adults and children, and the issuance of marriage licenses and firearms licenses. Judge Rosh also hears all bench or jury trials concerning estates, guardianships, and mental health.

After copying in 6 pages, I got tired of copying the pages, but if you have been involved in any probate matters, no difference what state you are in, you will know what I am getting at. I have heard numerous stories about the County Court appointed Admiistrators and Guardians. And yes, had to endure the horrors of such. The incident that we were involved with, ended in the death of an elderly, beloved aunt, may her soul rest in peace…
Had I as much sense as I do now, I would have copied each and every page of the Guardian appointed by Rosh, as he had many, many, many pages just like Mary Margaret Oliver has, but alas, I trusted that the cases would not disappear after I had begun looking at the obvious illegal acts that went on in the court, by the court, and through the court and the appointees.

If you are involved in any kind of proceedings in the Probate Court of any state and county, do yourself a favor and copy everything you can, when there is a court appointed entity involved in the proceedings, and gather every bit of information you can get your hands on, it might just save a life!

DeKalb County Commissioner Sentenced to Prison!

Ex-DeKalb Co. official Boyer sentenced to prison for embezzling county money
Mar 23, 2015, 5:30am EDT

http://www.bizjournals.com/atlanta/morning_call/2015/03/ex-dekalb-co-official-boyer-sentenced-to-prison.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+bizj_national+%28Bizjournals+National+Feed%29&page=all

Former DeKalb County Commissioner Elaine Boyer is sentenced to serve one year and two months in prison followed by three years of supervised probation for embezzling county money and misusing her government credit card. Boyer must also pay restitution of $87,350.
On Sept. 3, 2014, Boyer, 58, of Stone Mountain, Ga., pleaded guilty to one count of conspiring to commit mail fraud and one count of wire fraud. On Feb, 20, 2015, Boyer’s husband, John Boyer, 62, of Stone Mountain, Ga., pleaded guilty to one count of conspiring to commit mail fraud. John Boyer is scheduled to be sentenced on May 6.
“Elaine Boyer helped herself to over $75,000 in taxpayer funds which were intended to benefit and improve DeKalb County,” said Acting U.S. Attorney John A. Horn following Boyer’s sentencing on Friday. “Instead, she used the money for things like her personal travel and for purchases at high-end department stores. The citizens of DeKalb County deserve to be represented by honest elected officials who put the interests of the public first.”

According to Horn, the charges, and other information presented in court:
In 1992, Elaine Boyer began serving as the Commissioner of District 1, which served citizens in north DeKalb County, including in Brookhaven, Dunwoody, Tucker, and Smoke Rise, Georgia. Among other responsibilities, Ms. Boyer sat on the BOC’s Finance, Budget, and Audit Committee and was the Chairwoman of the Employee Relations and Community Services Committee. Although Boyer’s term of office did not expire until 2016, she resigned on Aug. 25, 2014, the day before she was charged in this case.
In September 2009, as the Commissioner of District 1, Ms. Boyer retained an individual (“Advisor”) supposedly to assist her with government consulting and advisory duties on issues that affected her constituents. From September 2009 to November 2011, false invoices were submitted to Ms. Boyer’s office for consulting services purportedly rendered by the Advisor.
In fact, the Advisor performed no services for Ms. Boyer, District 1 constituents, or DeKalb County. Ms. Boyer used the false invoices as a basis to authorize payments to the Advisor. Based on requisition requests from Ms. Boyer, DeKalb County issued approximately 35 checks to the Advisor for consulting services that were never performed. In total, DeKalb County paid the Advisor approximately $80,000, believing that legitimate services had been performed for the county.
After being paid by DeKalb County, the Advisor funneled approximately 75 percent of the money received from DeKalb County into Ms. Boyer’s personal bank account. Between September 2009 and November 2011, the Advisor deposited approximately $60,000 in DeKalb County funds into Ms. Boyer’s personal bank account (while retaining the remainder of the money). In turn, Ms. Boyer used the money deposited into her account to pay personal expenses, including purchases at hotels and high-end department stores.
Additionally, in her capacity as a Commissioner, DeKalb County issued Ms. Boyer a Visa Purchasing Card (“P-Card”) to make county-related purchases. On Jan. 14, 2010, she signed a Cardholder Users’ Agreement stating she would not use the P-Card to make personal purchases.
From October 2010 to February 2014, Ms. Boyer made more than 50 personal purchases on her P-Card, including purchasing airline tickets and hotel rooms for herself and her family for personal travel. In total, she made over $15,000 worth of purchases on her P-Card for personal goods and services.

DeKalb County full of criminals, including the ones that run the court system, maybe they can keep this guy off the streets!

DeKalb County sheriff’s deputies were able to track down and arrest a fugitive who was wanted on over a dozen criminal charges in a joint operation on Thursday afternoon.

Randall Washington was taken into custody without incident in the vicinity of Memorial Drive at approximately 2:30 p.m. Thursday, a DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office statement said. Sheriff’s deputies were joined in the operation by DeKalb police, U.S. Marshals, and Georgia Perimeter College police.

According to the sheriff’s office, Washington was wanted on a failure to appear warrant for charges of possession of cocaine to distribute, possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of a firearm during commission of a felony and obstruction of an officer; felony aggravated assault and felony criminal damage/first degree; along with two counts of family violence battery, criminal trespass damage, and simple battery harm.

In order to minimize the danger to the public, traffic within a several block vicinity of Memorial Drive was intentionally slowed, the sheriff’s office said. Georgia Perimeter College also instituted a temporary lockdown while the operation was ongoing.

DeKalb County Commissioner for Stone Mountain Area Sentencing Rescheduled Again!

One would wonder what the hold up in sentencing is. Like this woman didn’t know what she was doing was illegal?

Elaine Boyer’s sentencing rescheduled again

Elaine Boyer’s sentencing has been rescheduled again, this time to March 20, according to Bob Page, spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Atlanta.

The former DeKalb County commissioner faces about one to two years in federal prison for admittedly funneling more than $78,000 to an evangelist posing as a legislative consultant, with him kicking about $58,000 of it back to her. She also admitted running up more than $15,000 in personal purchases on her county Visa card.

Her sentencing was first set for December, then later for earlier this month. The delay could stem from the time federal prosecutors need to establish if Boyer has provided “substantial assistance” in exchange for their recommendation of a lighter sentence, a condition of her plea agreement.

DeKalb County CEO’s Corruption Trial!

Company: County money went away

Updated: 4:40 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 16, 2014  |  Posted: 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 16, 2014

By Rhonda Cook and Mark Niesse – The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

4:25 p.m. — An Austell company stopped getting calls to service county-owned generators soon after telling suspended DeKalb Chief Operating Officer Burrell Ellis the business would not contribute to his 2012 re-election campaign, a witness testified Tuesday.

Eneida Robles, who at the time worked for Power and Energy Services, had taken three calls in 2012 from Ellis trying to reach one of the business’ owners to ask for money for his re-election race.

Robles said she told him each time “we could not contribute to his campaign” and he became angry. She testified that Ellis said he would contact the county’s purchasing office the company did not want to service DeKalb.

Soon the calls to service DeKalb County generators stopped, Robles testified.

“They told us we couldn’t service DeKalb County until further notice,” Robles said. “I knew our service people were not going out to any annuals (yearly inspections).” Court is in recess until Wednesday morning.

3:50 p.m. — A former employee of an Austell company described in court the tense conversation she had with suspended DeKalb County Chief Operating Officer Burrell Ellis when she told him the business would not contribute to his 2012 re-election campaign.

The contract Power and Energy Services had with DeKalb County to service generators was relatively new and she feared she would lose her job at the small business after Ellis threatened to withhold business.

Eneida Robles testified that she took three calls from Ellis, asking to speak with one of the company owners. Each time she told Ellis co-owner Brandon Cummings was out of the office on a service call, as were her instructions. She had been told calls from Ellis should be treated as a solicitation.

When the third call from Ellis came a few days after the first two, Robles said she checked with her boss before giving Ellis a response to his request to speak to Cummings about a campaign contribution.

“When I got back on the phone, I told him that at this time we were not interested in his services, in providing campaign funds, that we could not contribute to his campaign,” she testified. “He was pretty angry with the fact that he couldn’t get Brandon on the phone. He told me ‘if you don’t want to service DeKalb County then I will contact the purchasing manager over there.’ When I said again we could not contribute, he got more angry. The tone was not a good tone.”

Minutes later, a call came from the head of DeKalb’s purchasing office, Kelvin Walton, she testified.

“I was pretty much worried about my job because I thought I had cost them the contract,” Robles testified.

2:38 p.m. — The first three witnesses called in the trial of suspended DeKalb County Chief Executive Officer Burrell Ellis offered jurors a quick tutorial on government operations and campaign finance reporting but their testimony didn’t get t o the heart of the corruption case.

A member of the special purpose grand jury that discovered the alleged corruption testified that the 23 members of the panel were assembled first to look at the Department of Watershed Management but their charge was they could examine other county agencies.

Jimmy Davis,the first witness in the trial that could last six weeks, mostly read from the court order that created the 23-person special grand jury, which completed its work in January 2013, and he responded to questions such as how often the grand jury met.

Davis was quickly followed by the head of DeKalb’s elections and voter registration office and then an investigator with the Georgia Government Transparency and Campaign Finance Commission, also known at the State Ethics Commission, both to take about the mechanics and requirements of campaign reporting.

None of the three — Davis, Maxine Daniels with the county Office of Voter Registration and Elections and Ethics Commissioner investigator Bethany Whetzel — were asked about the charges of extortion, criminal attempt to commit extortion, bribery and perjury, against Ellis.

Daniels testified the outcome of elections in 2008 and 2012 when Ellis won the vote for DeKalb CEO.

Whetzel explained information contained on Ellis’ campaign disclosure reports.

12:07 p.m. — There will be no evidence any vendor lost a contract because they didn’t contribute to the 2012 re-election campaign of suspended DeKalb County Chief Executive Officer Burrell Ellis, one of his defense attorneys said in opening statements in just-started corruption trial.

Defense attorney Dwight Thomas said Ellis didn’t have the authority to revoke contracts of more than $50,000 and once jurors hear secretly recorded conversations in their entirely — rather than just the snippet prosecutors played in their opening statement — they will understand that Ellis was not threatening anyone.

He was angry, however, that some vendors did not return his phone calls, Thomas said.

“He (Ellis) will say they don’t have to give (to his campaign) but they can’t be not returning phone calls.,” Thomas said. “They have to show respect for the office.”

11:35 a.m. — One of the attorneys defending suspended CEO Burrell Ellis told jurors they will see he did nothing to personally enrich his bank account or that he took kickbacks from vendors with DeKalb County contracts.

Defense attorney Dwight Thomas said the vendor records prosecutors say Ellis broke the law to get were available to any citizen, just for the asking.

“There will not be one single piece of evidence that Burrell Ellis asked for a bribe or solicited a bribe,” Thomas said. “There will be no evidence Burrell Ellis willfully lied to a special purpose grand jury….There is no evidence Chief Executive Officer Burrell Ellis took, stole or skimmed any political funds from any campaign.”

Thomas said Ellis at all times “acted within the power and the scope and the responsibilities” of the CEO’s office.

But assistant district attorney Lawanda Hodges, before wrapping up her 38-minute opening statement, played a brief clip from a recording of Ellis telling the county employee over contracts to cut off a vendor who refused to contribute to Ellis’ 2012 re-election campaign, or to “dry him up.”

Hodges said Ellis is guilty of theft by extortion, criminal attempt to commit extortion, bribery and perjury.

10:59 a.m. — A DeKalb County prosecutor told jurors power, punishment and perjury were at the core of the case against former DeKalb County CEO Burrell Ellis.

Assistant District Attorney Lawanda Hodges said Ellis used his power over an appointed agency head to get a list of vendors and phone numbers to use for soliciting campaign contributions.

He also tried to use that power over vendors to raise money for his 2012 re-election effort and then he threatened to pull lucrative work from companies that didn’t pay up.

Ellis was relentless, even after vendors said “no” and even after vendors said they were no longer interested in doing business with DeKalb, Hodges said.

And when asked before a special purpose grand jury about those threats, he lied, Hodges said.

10:09 a.m. — Even before the jury was brought in for opening statements Tuesday the defense team for suspended DeKalb County CEO Burrell Ellis suffered two losses.

DeKalb Superior Court Judge Courtney Johnson rejected defense attorney Craig Gillen’s efforts to show prosecutors may have tampered with a witness. Through his questions Gillen focused on assistant district attorney Lawanda Hodges’ email to subpoenaed witness Nina Hall in which the prosecutor included questions and proposed answers that Hodges said came from numerous prep sessions with Hall, a one-time Ellis aide.

Then the judge said prosecutors could use some recordings of Ellis talking about contracts in their opening statement.

9:37 a.m. – Suspended DeKalb County CEO Burrell Ellis, with his wife sitting behind him and surrounded by his attorneys, is getting his day in court.

Fifteen months after he was first indicted, opening statements in his corruption trial are to begin Tuesday with 12 black women, two black men and two white women — 12 jurors and four alternates — seated to decide if Ellis committed extortion and bribery to advance his political career.

Opening statements, scheduled to begin at 9 a.m., were delayed, however, because all the jurors had not arrived at court. In the meanwhile, the judge heard from attorneys any outstanding motions.

The first issue was whether to quash a subpoena for Nina Hall, a former top aide to Ellis. Hall is expected to decline to answer questions out of concern for self-incrimination unless she is granted immunity.

Prosecutors, led by DeKalb District Attorney Robert James, say the man who once ran DeKalb government and oversaw its $1.2 billion annual budget also strong-armed county vendors into giving him campaign cash.They say they will show Ellis illegally mixed county business with his 2012 re-election campaign by threatening county contractors unless they donated.

“The evidence will not show that Ellis is simply a ‘heavy-handed campaigner,’ but will show that he is an extortionist,” wrote Deputy Chief Assistant District Attorney Leonora Grant in one of the hundreds documents unsealed on Tuesday.

Ellis’ defenders are expected to counter that while Ellis was aggressive in raising campaign funds — $1.5 million — he never linked support for his re-election with winning lucrative county business.

But previously sealed pre-trial rulings will limit Ellis top-tier defense team.

Superior Court Judge Courtney Johnson ruled previously that Ellis can’t claim he was set up and his attorneys can’t ask witnesses if they thought an alleged victim of Ellis’ was racist. Johnson also decided that jurors can hear about vendors not included in the indictment who Ellis hit up for campaign contributions.

Even DeKalb County Janitors Are Corrupt!

Former DeKalb, GWCC janitor manager indicted on corruption charges

Posted: 5:37 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 16, 2014

By Alexis Stevens – The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

A former janitorial services manager for DeKalb County and the Georgia World Congress Center has been indicted and arraigned on charges of mail fraud and bribery, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said Tuesday.

Patrick Jackson, 55, of Loganville, is accused of accepting bribes while he was employed by both agencies from 2006 until 2012, according to U.S. Attorney Sally Quillian Yates.

“Jackson is charged with abusing his official positions with DeKalb County and the Georgia World Congress Center,” Yates said in an emailed statement. “According to the indictment, over a six-year period he accepted bribes in exchange for his helping a company attain and maintain exclusive government contracts.”

While employed by both DeKalb County and the GWCC, Jackson lived in a luxury apartment in Atlanta that was being paid for and furnished by an unnamed company, Yates’ office said. In exchange, Jackson agreed to use his position as a public official to benefit that company’s interests in its business dealings with DeKalb and GWCC, but he did not disclose to either employer that he was being provided with an apartment, according to investigators.

Jackson was indicted by a federal grand jury on Sept. 9 and later was arraigned, Yates’ office said. A trial date has not yet been set.

Scott Bernarde @ Dacula Patch – Ga. Man Used Craigslist to Sell Cars He Did Not Own!

Police: Ga. Man Used Craigslist to Sell Cars He Didn’t Own

He convinced victims to pay a deposit, then made off with the money.

Police: Ga. Man Used Craigslist to Sell Cars He Didn't Own

Police are looking for a man who posed as a sales rep for a Georgia auto dealership and scammed thousands from people who answered a Cragslist ad.

Gwinnett Police said a man identified as Jeff Manders went to Honda Mall of Georgia near Buford, Ga., obtained the vehicle identification number and description of cars, then posted the cars for sale on Craigslist with a price lower than the dealership’s.

He allegedly convinced victims to pay a deposit and then meet him later to complete the sale. He made off with the money.

Manders lives in Barrow County, police said.

Police said a representative from the Honda dealership reported the possible Craigslist scam on Aug. 3. Several customers had come to the business, asking about two specific cars on its used car lot — a 2002 Honda Accord and 2002 Ford Ranger. The customers said they saw the cars on Craigslist.

“The dealership’s representative stated at first it wasn’t a big deal, but then they learned that some of the customers were actually being asked to place deposits on the vehicles belonging to the dealership,” police spokesman Cpl. Ed Ritter said via email. “When the listed telephone number is called, a male by the name of Jeff answers the telephone and attempts to sell the cars and obtain deposit money from the interested buyers.”

On Aug. 4 and 5, police were contacted by three victims who said they all met Manders at the Honda dealership on Aug. 2 and gave him a total of $3,600 in deposits.

Each met with the man, gave him a deposit on the car and completed a phony bill of sale, on which the name of the dealership’s sales manager was forged.

“Each of the victims was supposed to meet Jeff back at a later time to pay the rest of the money and take possession of the car; Jeff obviously never returned,” Ritter said.

Police have obtained warrants for Jeff Manders for three counts each of theft by deception and forgery. He also is wanted in DeKalb County on a U.S. Marshall’s Service warrant for probation violations.

“Attempts have been made to locate Mr. Manders at his Barrow County home, but attempts have been unsuccessful,” Ritter said.

Manders drives a dark-gray 2006 Mazda Tribute with deer antlers across the back windshield and the initials KMA in the middle. Police say he has a girlfriend in Rome, and may travel back and forth between Barrow and Floyd counties.

If you have any information on this case, contact Sgt. Conlon with the GCPD Motor Vehicle Theft Unit at 770-513-5354.

UPDATE: Dirty Cops Sentenced for Aiding Drug Dealers

Update (4:00 p.m.): The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Georgia has released official comments on the sentencing of thirteen people involved in a scheme that saw law enforcement officers in the Atlanta provide protection for drug gangs and drug cartels.

“This case sent shock waves through Georgia law enforcement offices, both local and federal,” said United States Attorney Sally Quillian Yates. “Certainly, these departments are filled with dedicated officers who literally risk their lives every day to make our communities safe. But this case revealed a troubling number of officers from a variety of law enforcement agencies who betrayed their oaths to protect and serve, taking cash from the very criminals they should have been arresting.”

J. Britt Johnson, Special Agent in Charge, FBI Atlanta Field Office, stated: “While the sentences in this extensive law enforcement corruption matter ends the careers of those law enforcement and correctional officers involved, it can serve as an opportunity to those many other law enforcement officers and personnel to re-dedicate themselves to the oaths of office that they took when they accepted the badge. It also serves as a reminder to the public that the FBI remains responsive to such allegations of police misconduct and corruption and will investigate and present for prosecution those involved.”

“The vast majority of law enforcement officers serve the public with honor and distinction,” said Acting Special Agent in Charge Ray Brown of the Atlanta ATF Field Office. “Officers like these unfortunately tarnish the badge of the committed men and women of law enforcement. These individuals will now have to face the consequences for their deplorable actions. ATF will remain on the frontline of preventing violent crime through the dynamic level of law enforcement cooperation with our partners.”

According to prosecutors, an undercover investigation of allegations that Atlanta area police were protecting a local drug gang while in uniform began in August, 2011 following a tip from a cooperating individual who was associated with that gang.

The individual then used three civilians who provided the contact information of police officers who were willing to work with the drug gang to protect their drug deals in exchange for cash payments. These fake deals were recorded with video and audio by an undercover agent. The undercover investigation revealed the following:

-DeKalb County Police Department Officer Dennis Duren accepted $8,800 in exchange for protecting what he believed were four separate cocaine transactions in the Atlanta area between October and November, 2011. Duren was in uniform and carrying a weapon while performing these protection services.

-Another DeKalb police officer, Dorian Williams accepted $18,000 in exchange for protecting what he believed were three separate cocaine transactions between January and February 2013. He also wore his uniform and carried a gun during the deals.

-Stone Mountain Police Department Officer Denoris Carter accepted $23,500 to protect five supposed cocaine transactions in the Atlanta area. During four of the deals, Carter arrived in a patrol car and watched the transactions. During the fifth deal, Carter was on foot and was carrying a firearm.

-Atlanta Police Department Officer Kelvin D. Allen accepted $10,500 in exchange for protection of three separate cocaine transactions between June and August 2012. Allen was in uniform and was carrying a weapon for two of the tree transactions he was paid to protect.

-MARTA Police Department Officer Marquez Holmes accepted $9,000 to protect four supposed cocaine transactions between August and November, 2012. During two deals, Holmes arrived on foot in uniform and armed, and patrolled the area. During the other two deals, Holmes arrived in a MARTA Police cruiser and monitored the transactions.

-Forest Park Police Sergeant Victor Middlebrook accepted $13.800 for protecting four supposed cocaine deals, while he also patrolled during two more deals. During the deals, Middlebrook was dressed in street clothes but was armed.

-Monyette McLaurin, who was formerly employed at the DeKalb County jail but presented himself as an active duty DeKalb County Sheriff’s deputy, accepted $12,00 to protect two supposed cocaine transactions in January, 2013. Duing the deals, McLaurin wore a DeKalb Sheriff’s Office uniform with a badge and gun. Another former jail employee posing as a deputy, Chase Valentine, protected a drug deal on Jan. 17, 2013.

-Gregory Lee Harvey posed as DeKalb County detention officer and protected two supposed cocaine deals in December, 2012. During the deals, Harvey wore a black shirt with “SHERIFF” printed on the back.

-Federal Protection Services contractor Sharon Peters was paid $14,000 for protecting two supposed cocaine transactions. During the deals, Peters parked her car near the deal and observed the proceedings.

-Alexander B. Hill presented himself as a Clayton County Police Department officer and accepted $9,000 for protecting three supposed cocaine deals. During the deals, Hill wore plain clothes but wore a badge during the first deal he protected.

-Non-law enforcement facilitator Jerry B. Mannery, Jr., introduced Carter and Peters to the informant contact, and coordinated ten sham drug deals those officers protected. Between April 2012 and February, 2013, Mannery received $30,000 for his services.

-Non-law enforcement facilitator Elizabeth Coss introduced Holmes and Williams to the informant contact, and coordinated five sham drug deals. For her services, Coss accepted $17,000.

Mannery, the last defendant to be sentenced, will spend the next four years in prison and the following three years on supervised release. Coss was sentenced to six months in prison, six months of house arrest, and five years of supervised release.

The sentences for the officers can be read in the original article.

Original Story (7:00 a.m.): An FBI investigation into Atlanta area police officers who were allegedly protecting drug dealers for a price is coming to a close with guilty pleas in front of a United States District Judge.

Ten former law enforcement officers who served in various departments in Fulton and DeKalb counties will be spending anywhere from one to nine years on the other side of the bars inside a federal prison, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Two civilians have also been sentenced for their roles in liaising between the crooked cops and the drug outfits.

According to the FBI, an informant tipped off the bureau about the possibility that police officers were being paid by drug dealers and drug cartels to protect illegal transactions. Investigators used an informant to begin a sting operation, which lured several dirty cops. Some of the officers even wore their uniforms and drove police vehicles while working for the crooks.

The sentenced former officers are as follows:

-Dennis Duren (DeKalb County Police Department), seven year sentence
-Denoris Carter (Stone Mountain Police Department), three year sentence
-Gregory Harvey (DeKalb County Sheriff Office), nine year sentence
-Monyette McLaurin (DeKalb County jail), six year sentence
-Victor Middlebrook (Forest Park Police Department), seven year sentence
-Alexander Hill (private security officer), five year sentence
-Kelvin Allen (Atlanta Police Department), five year sentence
-Marquez Holmes (MARTA Police), five year sentence
-Sharon Peters (Federal Protective Services), three year sentence
-Chase Valentine (DeKalb County jail), 33 month sentence

Civilian Elizabeth Cross was also sentenced to a year in prison. Jerry Mannery, Jr., another civilian facilitator of the scheme, has pleaded guilty to charges related to his activity and will be sentenced on Wednesday.

Georgia Power Company SUX, Asplundh Tree Butchers SUX, Criminal Trespassers SUX, People Who Kill 200 Year Old Oak Trees SUX!!!!!!!!

November 15, 2013

Georgia Power came with their tree butchers, while having actual knowledge that we had filed suit against Georgia Power to prevent their visit with their Asplundh tree butchers.

They did not care.  They told the OFF-DUTY DeKalb County Police Officers, who refused to give their names or badge numbers to us, that they have a permit to butcher out trees.  A Permit?  What kind of funking bullshit is that?  A Permit to kill trees.  hhuummm.  Our attorney was at the Courthouse all morning and afternoon attempting to get a Judge to sign a TRO/Injunction to stop the crime that happened.  Apparently, did not do any good for him to spend his precious time there.  I don’t know who the judge we have is, but we are most disappointed.

These assholes crossed over a granite wall and chainlink fence, in their fucking bucket, from their fucking bucket truck to come 40-50 feet onto our property and destroy our trees.  A couple of weeks before they came, they put a brochure on our gate saying that they would be here in a couple of weeks.  That changed, and they came within a week, cause they found out that we were attempting to stop their destruction.  Anyway…The Brochure that they put out, show the wrong ways to cut a tree, ways that cutting the trees that will kill the trees.  That is exactly the way they cut our trees.  I will get the pix of the cutting up soon.  They take 20-40 year old trees, cut them off to 6-15 feet tall and cut all the limbs off the trees. If not, they cut all the limbs off of one side to create what is known as the hurricane effect.  That way, when the winds are very strong, it is like a sail, and blows over onto your house.  Very dangerous.

Georgia Power claimed to have an easement, but thorough title searches reveal that is a fucking lie.  Ga Power supervisor a few years ago, came out to be a smart-ass and had the original Georgia Power Railway/Electric Pole map from 1933.  The map clearly shows the poles and lines crossing the street BEFORE our property.  They put their pole 40 feet into my neighbors front yard when the property was rental property, and ran their lines over our property, then down to the pole on the corner.  In a criminal hearing I had yanked them into a few years ago, they swore that the pole has not moved since 1941-42, that the very same pole has been there for that long.  They are full of shit, and the judge was full of shit to believe them.  Wooden Power line poles don’t last no fucking 60-70 years.  They last 30 years, if things work out right, and 30 years makes an old pole.

The the off-duty police would not even let James walk back onto our property.  He had to walk 2 houses down, jump all the fences between the properties, yes, we all have fences, and ours is 8-10 feet tall with three strands of barbed wire atop, to keep our dogs in our yard.  James is 100 disabled, with mobility disabilities.  What kind of fucking cops do we have nowadays?

James and I have always heavily supported our local Police Dept.  I am so disappointed and pissed off, I could scream.  It took me all the way until today, before I could write this, I was so mad.

It ain’t over.  Not by a long shot.  They would not give names or badge numbers, but we have pictures of them, and I will do a FOIA request to get the rest, and find out the lies GA Power told this time, to get body guards to accompany them.  I will let yall know what I find out.

Georgia’s Rulings on Foreclosures SUX!

NOVEMBER 15, 2013 BY 

Jeff Barnes, Esq. On the Ball!

 http://foreclosuredefensenationwide.com/?p=533

US BANK ADMITS, IN WRITING FROM THEIR CORPORATE OFFICE, THAT THE BORROWER IS A PARTY TO AN MBS TRANSACTION; THAT SECURITIZATION TRUSTEES ARE NOT INVOLVED IN THE FORECLOSURE PROCESS; HAVE NO ADVANCE KNOWLEDGE OF WHEN A LOAN HAS DEFAULTED; THAT THE “TRUE BENEFICIAL OWNERS” OF A SECURITIZED MORTGAGE ARE THE INVESTORS IN THE MBS; AND THAT THE GOAL OF A SERVICER IS TO “MAXIMIZE THE RETURN TO INVESTORS”                                                                                                                                                                                                 November 6, 2013

 We have been provided with a copy of U.S. Bank Global Corporate Trust Services’ “Role of the Corporate Trustee” brochure which makes certain incredible admissions, several of which squarely disprove and nullify the holdings of various courts around the country which have taken the position that the borrower “is not a party to” the securitization and is thus not entitled to discovery or challenges to the mortgage loan transfer process. The brochure accompanied a letter from US Bank to one of our clients which states: “Your account is governed by your loan documents and the Trust’s governing documents”, which admission clearly demonstrates that the borrower’s loan is directly related to documents governing whatever securitized mortgage loan trust the loan has allegedly been transferred to. This brochure proves that Courts which have held to the contrary are wrong on the facts. 

The first heading of the brochure is styled “Distinct Party Roles”. The first sentence of this heading states: “Parties involved in a MBS transaction include the borrower, the originator, the servicer and the trustee, each with their own distinct roles, responsibilities and limitations.” MBS is defined at the beginning of the brochure as the sale of “Mortgage Backed Securities in the capital markets”. The fourth page of the brochure also identifies the “Parties to a Mortgage Backed Securities Transaction”, with the first being the “Borrower”, followed by the Investment Bank/Sponsor, the Investor, the Originator, the Servicer, the Trust (referred to “generally as a special purpose entity, such as a Real Estate Mortgage Investment Conduit (REMIC)”), and the Trustee (stating that “the trustee does not have an economic or beneficial interest in the loans”). 

The second page sets forth that U.S. Bank, as Trustee, “does not have any discretion or authority in the foreclosure process.” If this is true, how can U.S. Bank as Trustee be the Plaintiff in judicial foreclosures or the foreclosing party in non-judicial foreclosures if it has “no authority in the foreclosure process”? 

The second page also states: “All trustees for MBS transactions, including U.S. Bank, have no advance knowledge of when a mortgage loan has defaulted.” Really? So when, for example, MERS assigns, in 2011, a loan to a 2004 Trust where the loan has been in default since 2008, no MBS “trustee” bank (and note that it says “All” trustees) do not know that a loan coming into the trust is in default? The trust just blindly accepts loans which may or may not be in default without any advanced due diligence? Right. Sure. Of course. LOL. 

However, that may be true, because the trustee banks do not want to know, for then they can take advantage of the numerous insurances, credit default swaps, reserve pools, etc. set up to pay the trust when loans are in default, as discussed below. 

The same page states that “Any action taken by the servicer must maximize the return on the investment made by the ‘beneficial owners of the trust’ — the investors.” The fourth page of the brochure states that the investors are “the true beneficial owners of the mortgages”, and the third page of the brochure states “Whether the servicer pursues a foreclosure or considers a modification of the loan, the goal is still to maximize the return to investors” (who, again, are the true beneficial owners of the mortgage loans). 

This is a critical admission in terms of what happens when a loan is securitized. The borrower initiated a mortgage loan with a regulated mortgage banking institution, which is subject to mortgage banking rules, regulations, and conditions, with the obligation evidenced by the loan documents being one of simple loaning of money and repayment, period. Once a loan is sold off into a securitization, the homeowner is no longer dealing with a regulated mortgage banking institution, but with an unregulated private equity investor which is under no obligation to act in the best interest to maintain the loan relationship, but to “maximize the return”. This, as we know, almost always involves foreclosure and denial of a loan mod, as a foreclosure (a) results in the acquisition of a tangible asset (the property); and (b) permits the trust to take advantage of reserve pools, credit default swaps, first loss reserves, and other insurances to reap even more monies in connection with the claimed “default” (with no right of setoff as to the value of the property against any such insurance claims), and in a situation where the same risk was permitted to be underwritten many times over, as there was no corresponding legislation or regulation which precluded a MBS insurer (such as AIG, MGIC, etc.) from writing a policy on the same risk more than once. 

As those of you know who have had Bloomberg reports done on securitized loans, the screens show loans which have been placed into many tranches (we saw one where the same loan was collateralized in 41 separate tranches, each of which corresponded to a different class of MBS), and with each class of MBS having its own insurance, the “trust” could make 41 separate insurance claims AND foreclose on the house as well! Talk about “maximizing return for the investor”! What has happened is that the securitization parties have unilaterally changed the entire nature of the mortgage loan contract without any prior notice to or approval from the borrower. 

There is no language in any Note or Mortgage document (DOT, Security Deed, or Mortgage) by which the borrower is put on notice that the entire nature of the mortgage loan contract and the other contracting party may be unilaterally changed from a loan with a regulated mortgage lender to an “investment” contract with a private equity investor. This, in our business, is called “fraud by omission” for purposes of inducing someone to sign a contract, with material nondisclosure of matters which the borrower had to have to make the proper decision as to whether to sign the contract or not. 

U.S. Bank has now confirmed, in writing from its own corporate offices in St. Paul, Minnesota, so much of what we have been arguing for years. This brochure should be filed in every securitization case for discovery purposes and opposing summary judgments or motions to dismiss where the securitized trustee “bank” takes the position that “the borrower is not part of the securitization and thus has no standing to question it.” U. S. Bank has confirmed that the borrower is in fact a party to an MBS transaction, period, and that the mortgage loan is in fact governed, in part, by “the Trust’s governing documents”, which are thus absolutely relevant for discovery purposes.

Protesters Turned Into Those Whom They Were Protesting SUX!

You know, I have been thinking a lot lately about why it is that the Protesters from the 60’s and early 70’s are really pissing me off nowadays.   They act like a bunch of sheep or cattle.  The whole country is running amock and nobody says a damned thing about it.  IT SUX!  

I have come to the realization that the Protesters from the 60′-70’s turned into the very thing they were protesting, except even more so.  It SUX!

You would have thought that those protesters would have gone on to make a difference, and that there would not be all of this corruption that we deal with on a daily basis.  The flower children, peace – love and rock & roll.  What the hell happened?  Those people forgot everything about why they were protesting in the first place.  They forgot “let’s love one another”, forgot about “live and let live”.  Hell they are worse than the people they were protesting, because they are hypocrites.  

Now, they go sludging along, fuck it if everyone is being foreclosed upon, even if they paid for the property in full.  Fuck it if we have WWIII because our president is a fuck up.  Fuck it if Russia nukes us.  Fuck it if the Japanese have ended life on earth with their meltdown problem.  Fuck it if Russia’s Putin now speaks when the United States should have been speaking.  Fuck it if the Christians are being slaughtered.   Fuck it if there are no jobs.  Fuck it if Obamacare causes all of us to be denied healthcare we are entitled to.

Fuck it, Fuck it, fuck it.  THIS SUX!  This is not who we are.  This is not what are forefathers would have accepted.  This is not how we got to where we were.

So this week, the Protesters, turned cattle, sheep and couch potatoes are what SUX!!!

DeKalb County Superior Court Clerk Sux Too!!!

DeKalb County is the only County in the Country that would leave this crooked bi____h in office, and then the idiots of DeKalb county re-elected the crook!

Former DeKalb court clerk sues successor

9:16 am, April 20th, 2011

Former DeKalb County Superior Court Clerk Linda Carter has sued the woman who now holds that title, Debra DeBerry, alleging that DeBerry tricked her into resigning from the job.

Carter sued DeBerry in her official capacity and individually, and seeks unspecified damages. Carter also sued Gov. Nathan Deal, seeking a writ of mandamus to remove DeBerry from office and to compel official recognition of Carter’s “status as the rightful elected Clerk.” The complaint alleges that Deal accepted the letter of resignation without knowing it was “null and void.”

Carter is represented by A. Lee Parks and James E. Radford Jr. of Parks, Chesin & Walbert. The suit, filed in DeKalb Superior Court, does not list counsel for DeBerry.

DeBerry’s chief deputy clerk, Rick Setser, who also serves as her public information officer, said the county attorney had advised both him and DeBerry not to comment.

“It’s unfortunate,” he said. “I’ve spoken to Ms. DeBerry, and she is eager to clear her name.”

Parks, in an earlier conversation with the Daily Report, said Carter suffers from Alzheimer’s disease and would not have left willingly, as she was two years shy of vesting in her pension and medical benefits. The complaint alleges that on the afternoon of March 24, Deputy Clerk Lisa Oakley—who is not a defendant in the suit—“acting on instructions from DeBerry” and with knowledge that “Carter was suffering from a temporary episode of dementia,” asked her to sign a letter of resignation.

“The letter was presented to Carter as a routine business document … its contents were obscured from Carter’s view.  Oakley, acting on DeBerry’s instructions, did not inform Carter that she was being asked to sign a letter of resignation. … Oakley, acting on DeBerry’s instructions, and knowing that Carter did not know or understand the document’s content … indicated some urgency in having Carter sign the document.”

Oakley was not immediately available for comment.

The complaint alleges that on the evening that Carter signed her resignation letter, her husband, John Carter, came to pick her up from work and Oakley escorted her to the car. Oakley told Carter’s husband that “DeBerry had ordered that Oakley have Carter sign a letter of resignation.”

Also, allegedly on DeBerry’s instructions, Oakley said that Chief Judge Mark Anthony Scott “had ordered the Sheriff of DeKalb County, Georgia, to forcibly remove Carter from office.”

Scott said he did not even learn about Carter’s resignation until after it had been tendered and that he neither attempted to remove Carter from office nor ordered the sheriff to do so. He said he did not even have that authority.  “I read those allegations. I do not know where they come from,” he said.

According to the complaint, when Carter’s husband called Setser, the chief deputy clerk, to discuss the circumstances of the resignation, Setser allegedly said he and DeBerry jointly created the letter and agreed to have Carter sign it “to avoid media inquiries into Carter’s medical condition.”

The case, Carter v. DeBerry, 11cv4584, has been assigned to DeKalb Superior Judge Daniel R. Coursey Jr.

More Proof That DeKalb County Sux!

I am sure that everyone is pretty much familiar with my Post, “How DeKalb County Sux”.  

The Atlanta Journal & Constitution Recently Posted the following article.:

http://www.ajc.com/news/news/breaking-news/dekalb-ceo-ellis-indicted/nYN8S/

DeKalb CEO Burrell Ellis has been indicted by a DeKalb grand jury today on charges he illegally pressured contractors into giving him campaign contributions.

The 15-count indictment includes 14 felonies. Among them, four counts of extortion, two counts of theft by taking and several conspiracy charges.

DeKalb District Attorney Robert James, in an afternoon news conference, said Ellis is charged with extortion and other felonies for soliciting campaign contributions under threat. Ellis has turned himself into the DeKalb County Jail and has been released, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has confirmed.

The indictment, as read by James, says Ellis extorted CIBER Inc., a vendor in DeKalb, by threating a local manager. It says Ellis threatened to tell CIBER’s CEO that the local manager, Joanne Wise, delivered poor customer service if she did not agree to a campaign contribution. The indictment said Ellis acted similarly with other vendors and used DeKalb employees to draft lists of contractors doing business with DeKalb for the purpose of extorting them for campaign cash.

Ellis spoke to the media at his home late Tuesday. On the advice of his attorneys, he would not speak to the charges. But he professed his innocence.

“I do want to make one statement emphatically to the good people of DeKalb County that I’ve done nothing wrong as I’ve said from the very beginning. Done nothing wrong and I would never, ever, ever do anything to violate the public trust,” he said.

At least one of Ellis’ colleagues thought the criminal charges put the entire county in a negative light.

“This is a sad day for DeKalb County,” said Commissioner Lee May, who serves alongside Ellis. “While every person is innocent until proven guilty, this ongoing saga has been a distraction and continues to bring unwelcome negative attention to our county and our government.”

For a year, a special grand jury investigated possible corruption in the county water and sewer department contracts and eventually it led to search warrants being executed at Ellis’ home and office and at the home and of attorney Kevin Ross, the CEO’s former campaign manager.

Ross was not indicted Tuesday. None of the companies named in the search warrants on Ellis and Ross seeking campaign records were included in Tuesday’s indictment.

Special grand juror Albert Trujillo, 72, said the grand jury’s investigation led to the office of the CEO. He said he was unsure if he could discuss specifics of the investigation, but he was pleased that the special grand jury’s work was apparently a blue print for the indictment.

Trujillo, a retired as an IT consultant, said he has lived in DeKalb since 1972 and he is saddened by all the negative publicity.

Ellis’ indictment comes just months after Gov. Nathan Deal removed five DeKalb school board members for mismanagement.

“Businesses shy away from a county that’s in disrepair when they have that many problems and they smell bad with all these problems,” he said. “… Why go and put your headquarters in a county which resonates with bad press. It breaks your heart.”

But those close to Ellis still say Tuesday’s indictment doesn’t square with the man they know, who was elected to DeKalb’s top job promising reform.

“I don’t know of any forced campaign contribution that Ellis ever attempted, and I worked in all his campaigns,” said Oliver Brown, a DeKalb political operative. “I’d be shocked (if this is true).”

The criminal charge alone means Ellis can be removed from officce.

DeKalb County Commissioner Jeff Rader said the law requires Gov. Nathan Deal to form an advisory committee headed by Attorney General Sam Olens.

If the committee recommends suspension and the governor implements it, then Commission Chairman Lee May would step in as acting CEO until Ellis either resigns or is cleared or convicted in court. “And that could go on for a long time,” said Rader, who added that Ellis hasn’t been around the administrative offices much since his home was raided by investigators in January.

Should Ellis get suspended, he’ll be the seventh elected official in DeKalb to meet that fate since March. That’s when a federal judge allowed Deal to suspend two-thirds of the county school board over an accreditation agency’s allegations about nepotism, financial mismanagement and other concerns.

Taxpayers such as Robert Richardson are disillusioned.

“Every elected official in DeKalb County seems to be a crook,” said Robertson, a retired Realtor who lives near DeKalb Peachtree Airport. He said he and a lot of his friends voted for Ellis because he looked “polished” and seemed honest. Then, Robertson read about how connected some of Ellis’ campaign supporters were.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported in February that nearly 40 percent — almost $600,000 — of the campaign cash Ellis collected had come from firms that either worked, or wanted to work, for the county.

“You don’t have a chance unless you’re in the shakedown,” Robertson said. “It’s disgraceful.”
