Feds widen investigation into DeKalb County spending | www.myajc.com

A federal grand jury has served DeKalb County with a wide-ranging subpoena for vendor payment records, a clear sign that a corruption investigation won’t end with this week’s guilty plea by ex-Commissioner Elaine Boyer.

Investigators want evidence of what work was done for the money, such as reports, written opinions, audits or correspondence.

he subpoena names 62 vendors paid by all the remaining sitting commissioners and Interim CEO Lee May, dating back more than six years. May was a commissioner before replacing suspended CEO Burrell Ellis, who goes on trial Monday on corruption charges of his own.

Included on the subpoena are two companies operated by Commissioner Sharon Barnes Sutton’s ex-boyfriend, Warren Mosby. HSI Systems & Consultants and RighThink Associates received more than $34,000 in taxpayer funds during Sutton’s first two years in office, mostly for Mosby’s advice on how to be a commissioner, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported last week.
