Ex-Gwinnett leader describes bribery as common – SFGate

The more I hear from this woman the angrier I get about what she has done. Here she is in an interview talking about her involvement in accepting a bribe from an FBI undercover agent:

“They all said, ‘This is the way you do business in Gwinnett County,'” Lasseter said. “I definitely feel like it was (the way business was done) for years.”

Lasseter would not say which developers and officials were supposedly involved in the bribery. She said she had no personal information about any current Gwinnet officials who accepted bribes.

If she wasn’t rotten to begin with why didn’t she report these bribes that were offered to her? And why wouldn’t she let us know which past county officials were a part of this bribery?

The story is that her husband’s death left her in financial straits and that is why she began accepting bribes. The fact that her son is involved with her leads me to believe that she raised her son in a way that made him just as dishonest as her so her dishonesty must have been a part of her make up from the beginning.

I think her actions as mayor of Duluth need to be examined at this point.
