The DeKalb County LSBE vendors voted to make the information
information
make
to
that we gave to lawenforcement. We have decided
on one f,articular contract for $1.4 million dollars available for public
review. Do these documents define criminal activity?

After submitting an Open Records Request and receiving Kelvin Walton's
emails, our researchers went through (and continue to go through) over
20,000 emails and hundreds of attachments'
We found an attachment that provided the amount of money paid out on
different contracts. The contract for $1.4 million paid out over $72
million dollars. Please note that this is the same contract that the FBI
indicted two county employees for extortion and bribery in20l2.

Acting Attorney General John Horn and our local law enforcement
haye investigated crimes in DeKalb county indicting political
officials, government employees, business owners, and police officers.
we need to restore pubtic trust, remove the "cloud of corruption" and
reclaim our local government.
We, the undersigned, are concerned citizens, activists, organizations,
and business owners, etc. who needs our local, state and federal law
enforcement to move forward with this action plan that includes the
