Details of corruption and waste in DeKalb County’s government are expected to be released soon in a final report being prepared by outside investigators.
The investigators, former Georgia Attorney General Mike Bowers and Richard Hyde, have been combing through documents and interviewing witnesses for five months in an effort to expose government misbehavior.
They called the county “rotten to the core” in a letter to Interim DeKalb CEO Lee May earlier this month, but May rejected that allegation because he said most government employees are honest.
The extent of corruption found by the investigation remains to be seen. DeKalb spokesman Burke Brennan said the report is expected to be delivered next week.
