By Candace Wheeler | Closer Look with Rose Scott on WABE 90.1FM

Andrea Young, executive director of the ACLU of Georgia, with former DeKalb County CEO Burrell Ellis, stopped by WABE to talk with Closer Look host Rose Scott to announce that Ellis will be the ACLU of Georgia’s first ever Political Director. In 2013, Ellis was indicted on charges of attempted extortion and perjury. The case led to a lengthy legal battle for Ellis which included serving eight months in prison. Ellis and Young talk about the initiatives for the new position, and why Mr. Ellis’ previous experience makes him the right fit for this role.
