Crossroads News has the story:

Lewis, his former chief operating officer, Patricia Reid, her former husband Anthony Pope, and her secretary Cointa Moody were indicted Wednesday by a DeKalb grand jury on charges that they ran a criminal enterprise that sent millions of dollars to Pope, Reid’s then-husband, and vendors in exchange for cash, sports tickets or other perks totaling more than $33,332.25.

District Attorney Gwen Keyes Fleming, who announced the indictments, said Reid manipulated four school projects to benefit Pope, and that Lewis signed off the changes, and that they benefited from gifts of sporting and theater tickets. Keyes Fleming said both of them concealed the changes and Pope’s involvement from the DeKalb School Board.

The Champion reports the DA called the ring the largest and worst she has seen in her 17 years.

The AJC has more as does atlawblog.

At this time I can’t say how this will affect the race in either primary.
