As was detailed last evening, you can now download HERE over 100+ pages of supporting documentation and evidence related to a threat of lawsuit by former Fulton County Deputy County manager Gwendolyn Warren and former Investigative Officer Maria Colon of the now shuttered Fulton County Office of Professional Standards against Fulton County. Among the allegations, which their attorney calls “the tip of the iceberg,” are:
-Members of the Fulton County Commission ordered County Manager Zachary Williams to fire Warren and Colon after they allegedly found widespread theft among employees within the County’s Health and Human Services Agency and Office of Emergency and Transitional Housing.
-The intervention of one County Commissioner to reinstate a fired employee after it was discovered by Colon that the employee had allegedly obtained sexual favors in exchange for employment with the County.
-The payment of “supportive service” payments for out-of-work employees to employees who were allegedly still on the payroll.
-Alleged interference from one County Commissioner with Warren and Colon’s investigation into the County Information Technology Department regarding allegations that lucrative contracts were steered to a vendor which the contract issuers had direct financial interests.
And yet another day passes without word from District Attorney Paul Howard if he has begun an investigation or when/if the Office of Professional Standards will be reconstituted.
Tick tock, ladies and gentlemen.
