Let Them Eat Cake!

Why are the taxpayers of this county not demanding Superintendent Crawford Lewis resign immediately? How can anyone in his office sit there with a straight face and expect people to continue to swallow this crap?!

First Dr. Lewis accepts a 15 thousand dollar a year raise when the county is nearly bankrupt and teachers are taking pay cuts. (CrossRoadsNews). Then he wants to you to believe he filled his county bought car with gasoline 3 times in one day. Again, with a straight face, he says he put the wrong gas in so he drained the tank and filled it back up. (AJC Investigation)This man should be in jail! Of course District Attorney Gwen Fleming in all her ineptness refuses to prosecute him. (Bet your ass she'll prosecute the 5 firemen if given a chance) Maybe her use of taxpayer gasoline needs to be investigated.

Now members of the school board go on a field trip to Hollywood costing almost 400 thousand dollars.

This county is corrupt. The school board is corrupt and the board of commissioners are corrupt. Plan and simple, yet the taxpayers continue to allow this to happen!

DeKalb citizens do not understand that 70 percent of the local tax burden is school system. combine a socialistic government and school system and what do you get? a dysfunctional school system that can only graduate 60 percent of its students, an overextended county government that cannot even fix its roofs, and the county employees set up for a screwing. Of course elected officials are exempt from the pay cuts. It's all legal and all so wrong!
Bend over guys! Here it comes!

So let me get this straight: he "accidentally" filled his car up with premium gas, so after realizing his mistake, he drained the gas out of the tank, then filled up with "regular" gas. So what happened to the full tank of premium gas?? Did he return it to the gas station with a receipt, get a refund and reimburse the county?? But then he filled up a third time?? Your average car gets at least 300 miles per tank. We're supposed to believe he burned 900 gallons in one day? Oh, sorry, he burned 600 gallons, then refueled so he could drive to see his momma??

If he drove 75 mph nonstop, it would take 8 hours to burn through 600 miles worth of gas.

So what was he doing?? Driving around the perimeter like was the Talladega Speedway all day, pulling in every 300 miles to gas up again??

I don't know what upsets me more: that we have really corrupt politicians, or that they are such bad liars about it. At least if they were good liars, we could pretend they weren't corrupt.

I absolutely agree that Crawford Lewis and the School Board needs to go. I am a grandmother raising my grandson and get very bent out of shape when I see the way our teachers are being treated and believe me I yell loud and long. But until such time as our DA and others with the power to do something about this do something then we can only continue to yell long and hard. I am livid at the way our police, fire and teachers are being treated. We do have one thing going for us - the ballot box.

“Its federal money money dude….chill out”

Sounds like something Yarbrough, Ivanov or Veillon would say. I am sure they were taught that by King Rancifer, the king of the federal grant. Hey it is FEDERAL money, so let’s just waste the hell out of it. And we wonder why this country is in such trouble.

Federal money is still MONEY and it is OUR money. Stop wasting it!

And LoFlyer is right. The school system takes most of the tax money and waste a good portion of it. The entire county is just screwed up and some people need to be voted out of office!

It will stimulate his personal economy because the taxpayer is footing the bill for his family gas!!!

And he's not a bad liar, he's just plain stupid. No one will buy that story...except a DeKalb county voter!!

What a pathetic liar!

He really expects us to believe he drained his tank because he put premium in instead of regular? That won't do anything to your car. Hell, even putting regular in a car that calls from premium once in a while won't hurt your car.

He expects us to also believe he filled up so many times because he fills up at half a tank?? Dr. Lewis, the mileage of your car and the number of gallons you pumped don't lie!

I know, somehow Dr. Lewis' car's gas tank grew that day to double its size, so when it reach half empty, he filled it up, it took twice as much gas as normal, and because the gas tank was so much bigger, the extra weight caused his car to only get 3 miles per gallon! That explains the 3 fill ups and the low number of miles driven on his car!

Please go away. People like you are part of the reason this country/county is in its current state. I hope you don't vote.

This is absurd!!!!!! The line units at DKPD don't even need to be fueled 3 times a day and they are literally driven 24 hours a day. Prosecute his ass.
