President Barack Obama appointed DeKalb County District Attorney Gwen Keyes Fleming to be the next regional Environmental Protection Agency administrator.
Fleming announced her resignation Wednesday.
What does this mean for the Lewis/Pope/Reid/Moody corruption trial? Personally, I don't think it will have much of an effect at all. In fact, I would imagine that the trial has been handled mostly by the Assistant DA and staff all along. I think Gwen Keyes did the only thing she could do in this matter - make the decision to file charges. This gutsy move against people she knows well personally may even be what made her a choice for the EPA job. Obama was probably impressed.
I predict the trial will carry on as usual. Any attorneys willing to weigh in?
