Oh, what a tangled web we weave when we first practice to deceive!

For example, when Augusta Mayor Hardie Davis Jr. was pushing for a new James Brown Arena to be built at Regency Mall, he said he didn’t know who paid for billboards urging voters to vote yes for that site in an upcoming straw pol...

  1. The sad takeaway from this article is the loss of years of experience in two key positions in a climate such as this and the new infrastructure spending like there will be. I guess we’ll be playing a game of guess WHO even more in 2022.

  2. Thank you for sharing the truth Sylvia. The Mayor and few others need to be held accountable. I know Hardie Davis and he thinks he’s above the law. The real question is how much longer is the local Law, GBI and FBI going to ignore past and present laws being broken by Hardie Davis. I wish someone would start a Class Action Law Suit against Hardie Davis to retrieve taxpayers money. Then there’s the question where is the IRS on this matter. Hardie himself has stated he has been spending taxpayers money on personal items and events since 2016. The taxpayers need to hold the individuals at the state and federal levels accountable for protecting Hardie Davis by voting them out of office.

  3. Makes one wonder if Hardie Davis shot and killed someone, would a law enforcement agency investigate the shooting. I plan on switching to the Democrat Party so I am not obligated or expected to comply with any laws or regulations, and will not be investigated, indicted, and prosecuted if I don’t.

  4. In the old TV show “Amos ‘n Andy” the actors played satirical characters, always in comic turmoil. The only rational figure was Amos the cab owner. While George “Kingfish” Stevens, and Algonquin J. Calhoun were constantly scheming and plotting, poor Andy Brown was often the hapless victim. In every episode the greedy malefactors were exposed in the end, but, always returned in the next episode, anxious to conspire again without an ounce of remorse, Hmmm….just remembering. It was fun when it was fiction.
