DeKalb Co. spokesman: Interim CEO 'did nothing wrong'

Posted: Updated:

New details are emerging on the corruption investigation into DeKalb County’s interim CEO.

CBS46 talked exclusively with Lee May’s spokesman, Burke Brennan.

The FBI is investigating whether a company won a contract in return for a contribution. In 2011, Water Removal Services of Alpharetta allegedly wrote a $4,000 check to May after doing some work on a sewer in front of May’s home. The company later won a county contract for $300,000.

Brennan said May did nothing wrong.

“There was a check made out in the CEO’s name. The CEO said he never asked for that check, never received that check and didn’t receive a dime from that check,” Brennan said

Brennan said someone forged May's signature on the check and that May is the crime victim.
