DeKalb commissioner accused of sexually harassing employee

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.

Adams, a pastor and former police officer, denies making inappropriate comments.

He says he treats employees and constituents with integrity and accountability.
