DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. (WXIA) – She admittedly stole thousands of taxpayer dollars, and now she’s hitting them up for more money.
Former DeKalb County Commissioner Elaine Boyer has applied to get her full pension from the county – and has been approved.
“It’s outrageous,” said Restore DeKalb member Joel Edwards. “It just doesn’t make any sense at all.”
Edwards says the county watchdog group is needed now more than ever.
“It’s disbelief,” he said. “They can’t believe it.”
Edwards and other members of the group are outraged to learn that after Boyer admitted to stealing money from the county, she’s now asking for more of it in the form of a pension.
“A lot of people have come to me and voiced their concerns about the elected leaders in this county in disbelief,” Edwards said.
