It’s been an eventful week in DeKalb County. The corruption case of suspended DeKalb CEO Burrell Ellis ended with a hung jury. And a much-anticipated audit showed lax oversight of commissioner spending.
Some DeKalb residents have resigned themselves to a certain level of impropriety, while others see light at the end of the tunnel.
DeKalb politics has been anything but dull - kickback schemes, federal probes, forced-out school board members, and most tragically an assassination of the county’s sheriff-elect.
So it makes sense residents would be a bit cynical.
