City Councilwoman Arrested by GBI for Making False Statements

The GBI has arrested and charged Tameka Lowe, age 46, of Manchester, Meriwether County, Georgia, with two counts of False Swearing and one count of Violation of Oath by Public Officer.

From the Georgia Bureau of Investigation:

On February 8, 2024, the Manchester Police Department asked the GBI to investigate allegations that a City Councilwoman falsified her criminal history record information on election paperwork. Lowe provided false information on a Notice of Candidacy and Affidavit when she applied to run for a vacant Manchester City Council position. She then falsely swore to the City of Manchester Oath of Public Officer after being elected to the City Council position.

Lowe was booked into the Meriwether County Jail. She was released on $750 bond.

WTVM reported that Lowe told them after her arrest that this is happening because she’s doing what she said she was going to do.

“This one lady that I spoke to she said, ‘because you’re doing what you said you’re going to do they’re going to come after you….so today that’s a full circle moment; today [Tuesday] they came,’” said Lowe. “What was going through my mind in there [jail]…honestly, I was thinking about the people, about the work we still need to do as a community.”

This investigation is active and ongoing. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the GBI regional investigative office in Columbus at 706-565-7888.  Anonymous tips can also be submitted by calling 1-800-597-TIPS (8477), online at https://gbi.georgia.gov/submit-tips-online, or by downloading the See Something, Send Something mobile app.

Once the investigation is complete, the case file will be given to the Meriwether County District Attorney’s Office for prosecution.
