Mayors Behaving Badly

Whatyamean Stockbridge isn’t in Clayton County? You wouldn’t know it by the mayor’s behavior.

An outside investigator recommended Monday that Stockbridge city officials take steps to possibly remove the mayor.

The advice comes after a two-month investigation into allegations that Mayor Lee Stuart violated the city charter, state laws and federal laws. In at least one case, Stuart’s alleged misconduct cost the city $60,000, according to the findings of Christopher Balch, an Atlanta attorney hired by the city council to investigate the allegations.

It is the latest salvo in a three-year legal showdown between Stuart, who filed a lawsuit to block the investigation, and the city council over how the city should be run. City council took no action on Monday’s report, which found that the mayor violated several laws.

Just Google him. He’s been a busy fella.
