The former chief of staff for former county commissioner Elaine Boyer has become the latest county official to face an indictment.

Boyer pleaded guilty to charges of wire and mail fraud and was sentenced to 14 months. The DeKalb County District Attorney’s office says that a grand jury has indicted her former chief of staff, Bob Lundsten, on six counts of theft by taking and three counts of making false statements.

The indictment says Lundsten “lied about expenses to Kroger and UPS.

“Anytime there are suspected incidents where tax dollars have possibly been misappropriated or abused is an issue for my office,” DeKalb County District Attorney Robert James said in a press release “We take matters of alleged public corruption very seriously and will continue our work in bringing justice to those who abuse and illegally misuse money from the tax payers of DeKalb County.

Lundsten was highly active in Dunwoody politics and runs the blog.

    Enigmatic or slimy? Always bombastic, Bob has loyal friends who will defend him to their last. For that he should feel lucky. Who knows, perhaps he will earn redemption in this life for all of the lies, petty thefts, and chaos he leaves behind.

    Just another termite….

    Robert James is now confirmed as the chief of picking low-hanging fruit. With all of the contract illegalities, P-Card crap is just contributing to DeKalb fatigue. More cases like this not only waste time that could be spent on larger, more complicated issues (such as Doraville’s fraudulent executive sessions on the Big Bad Project)–but will have people not understanding or paying attention when more meaningful issues come up. Did you see where the needle-d–k has ignored the case with school principle’s malfeasance with testing UNTIL a verdict was reached in Atlanta? Not only picking easy cases, but also incompetent–actually having to back away from hundreds of charges against Dr.Lewis to end up with three P-Card charges for about $200. He had to back away from charges against the Dunwoody wife that was being tried for murder–should have done his homework, etc, etc, etc. When will AJC change gears and look at this guy? Plenty enough to indict him in the court of public opinion, since that’s how they make their money.
