ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) The city of Atlanta has received another subpoena related to former Mayor Kasim Reed's administration, this time targeting former Chief Financial Officer Jim Beard.
According to documents, federal investigators are requesting records related to at least four firearms registered to Beard, including two Glock handguns and two AR 15 rifles.
They're also requesting all employment, compensation and tax documents from Beard's time at City Hall, as well as two invoices.
An attorney for Beard, Scott R. Grubman, issued the following statement to CBS46:
"As Mr. Beard has consistently stated, he is personally unaware of any wrongdoing by anyone at the City during his tenure as CFO, during which time he was the City's lead negotiator for the Arena/Gulch transaction and was also finance lead for numerous other transactions designed to bring billions of dollars of investment into our City. After over a year of overturning every rock and sorting through every haystack, the government has been unable to uncover one single piece of evidence against Mr. Beard. Hopefully they will now begin dedicating their limited public resources to more pressing issues such as the rampant gang violence and cyber crimes that are affecting our businesses and residents on a daily basis."
Last summer, federal investigators requested eight years of city records including purchasing card information, travel records, and payments all related to the Reed administration.
