Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens is now engaged in an intense PR campaign to convince the public, the media, and the judiciary that documented allegations of a criminal conspiracy extending from the University System of Georgia into the Attorney General’s office itself are “outlandish conspiracy theories” and “attention-seeking gimmicks” with “no credible evidence” to support them. The problem is, that there is, says Attorney Stephen Humphreys.
Georgia Perimeter College budget records were intentionally falsified in 2012 and up to $19 million remains unaccounted for to this day. The AG has admitted that official budget reports to former GPC President Anthony Tricoli were falsified, yet Tricoli was publicly blamed for a $25 million deficit and ousted, while the state officials who knowingly falsified the budget reports kept their jobs and oversaw the investigation (yes, the same one that leaves $19 million missing and unaccounted for).
University System records show that–in the course of a failed attempt to revoke the tenure of Professor Dezso Bender, an outspoken critic of UGA President Michael Adams–Adams and the Attorney General engaged in concealing crucial documents, calling witnesses to falsely deny the existence of those documents under oath, falsely denying the existence of the documents in response to Open Records Act requests, manufacturing false evidence by impersonating UGA students, knowingly falsifying charges against Professor Benedek, and calling witnesses against Benedek to give perjured testimony relying on the concealed documents and fabricated false evidence. This was all proven, with the documents authenticated under oath through cross examination of the witnesses called to give perjured testimony against Benedek, in a three-day evidentiary hearing.
Governor Deal, for his part, has failed to answer three separate letters invoking his statutory authority to appoint an independent investigator, where the AG refuses to act. Governor Deal has been provided with evidence, from the State’s own records, documenting crimes that have occurred in connection with widespread and knowing falsification of official state agency reports.
Those knowing falsifications now extend from the original attacks on Tricoli and Benedek to the concerted effort to cover up serious criminal wrongdoing in the University System and within the Attorney General’s office itself.
