YouTube is fast becoming a tool for politicians to communicate with the public.

Earlier this week, the Georgia Senate began releasing a wrap up of each legislative day.

Now, suspended DeKalb CEO Burrell Ellis has taken to YouTube, proclaiming his innocence on Thursday and complaining about District Attorney Robert James’ tactics.

Ellis has been charged with 14 felonies for alleged corruption. 

“With God’s help, I will be vindicated and return to my work as your CEO,” Ellis says in the video. “I believe that what is right will always reveal itself in the end. And that will be the restoration of the office office to which you have elected me and my reputation.”

Until now, Ellis has not spoken publicly about the charges against him.

Watch for yourself.
