This morning, my ethics complaint against Fulton County Commissioner William “Bill” Edwards hit the press. Here’s what Commissioner Edwards told the Atlanta Story:
Edwards consider the allegation “a joke.” “There is nothing wrong with that [flyer], as an elected official, I can make any comment I want.” “Citizen files ethics complaint against Fulton Commissioner”
I agree. Edwards can make any comment he wants, but when an elected official uses public funds to disseminate his personal opinion to the public, that’s just wrong.
I’m glad Commissioner Edwards considers ethics a laughing matter, because I most certainly don’t.
