Georgia AG Announces Indictment Of Multiple Georgia Democrat Officials

Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr has announced the indictment of multiple Democrat state officials for taking money to use their positions of power to grant special priority to a company. 

The indictment relates to a contract awarded to S&A Express for professional janitorial services for the Douglas County Annex Building. 

Democrat Douglas County Chairwoman Romona Jackson Jones, Democrat Douglas County Commissioner Henry Mitchell, and Democrat Douglas County Tax Commissioner Greg Baker were all charged with Conspiracy in Restraint of Free and Open Competition in Transactions. Former Purchasing Director Bill Peacock, and Anthony Knight, owner of S&A Express, were also indicted on the same charge. 

“Those who work for the taxpayers of Georgia are expected to uphold high ethical standards and to perform their duties in an honest and transparent manner,” said Carr. “Whether an elected official or employee, anyone who breaks this trust will be held accountable for their actions. We take these allegations very seriously, and we look forward to presenting our case in court.”

The investigation was conducted by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI).

“The GBI continues to work for the citizens of Georgia in being an impartial investigatory agency in the investigation of suspected public corruption,” said GBI Director Mike Register. “The GBI works in coordination with other partners, such as the Attorney General, to ensure any defendants’ due process is protected while also ensuring criminal acts are prosecuted.”

Jones was also charged with one count of False Statements for “knowingly and willingly [making] a false statement]” during an interview with the GBI by allegedly saying she did not sign a contract with S&A Express.
