Fulton commissioners blast, insult chairman

Tensions boiled Wednesday between Fulton commissioners and Chairman John Eaves, culminating in a letter from Vice Chair Emma Darnell accusing him of "ignorance and arrogance." Earlier in the day, Eaves ordered Darnell's microphone cut off when she exceeded her speaking time limit.

As Eaves shepherded in a new policy allowing commissioners the option of three full-time and two part-time employees, Bill Edwards accused him of rushing so he'd have a fourth vote before Tom Lowe left early. Robb Pitts compared Eaves to the crooked attorney on Amos ‘n' Andy. "You should know," Darnell's memo said, "I have had to deal with thugs and bullies many times -- I always win."
