  1. Do any of this as a regular citizen and it’s called embezzlement and tax fraud..as a politician it’s business as usual. Taxpayers should be picketing every commission meeting and demanding a fiscal audit of the mayors office and a recall of any commissioner that won’t support an audit!!!

  2. I enjoy the old cliche, “Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.” Why can’t this man be censored immediately until all these allegations are settled by the investigators? Is there a legal process for censoring? It’s time for our Mayor to resign now, long before November. If the state finds cause to prosecute Mayor Davis, will he still be eligible to run for another public office in the future? I hope not!!

  3. This just gets worse and worse – why is there no one calling for a forensic audit (Feds, Governor, Citizen watchdog)? The missing money just keeps piling up, is no one curious as to what is and continues to happen with taxpayers money?
    Davis needs investigating. Others would be in jail for these discrepancies (?).

  4. How much money did he embezzle while serving in the GA legislature? How bad does the stench need to get before state and federal law enforcement investigate? Do the people who voted for him care that the missing money came out of their pockets too? If he doesn’t land a political patronage job after his term ends, will he resort to financial fraud and phone scams to maintain his current lifestyle?
