It isn’t a typical day in Georgia without sex and race being brought up regarding an elected official! This time, it’s in Chatham County.
A Chatham County commissioner has filed a lawsuit against a candidate for commission chairman alleging slander, defamation and libel related to statements the candidate made on his election Web site. Commissioner Priscilla Thomas stated in the lawsuit filed Monday that James Dewberry published false statements claiming she had an affair with Joe Murray Rivers, a former commissioner who is serving as interim executive director of Chatham Area Transit.
