Clayton staffer accuses Eldrin Bell of 'inappropriate behavior'

" width=

Clayton County officials are looking into a county staffer's claims that Chairman Eldrin Bell made "inappropriate comments" and "inappropriately touched" her.

From the AJC:

County chief of staff Alex Cohilas said the employee filed a complaint last week that Bell “had engaged in inappropriate behavior toward her” during an employee appreciation picnic.

Bell, who's currently serving his second term as CEO of the beleaguered county, said in a statement released this morning that he was “deeply saddened and disheartened” by the allegations. The matter's now in the hands of the county attorney.
