DeKalb County Commissioner Greg Adams is being accused by one of his office’s employees of sexual harassment.

Ashlee Wright, who is Adams’ district director, alleges that he pursued a late-night “sexual liaison” while they were at an out-of-town conference. She also says he asked for pictures of her in a bikini, among other allegations.

Wright is seeking $750,000 from the county government to resolve the allegations outside of court.
