  1. My daily prayer: May Every Lie be Revealed. I’m so disappointed in Hardy Davis. To think I advised my son to vote for him. ( I was temporarily living in WY)
    Just think how wonderful it would be for the citizens of Richmond County to be honestly governed and represented by Truthful leaders. Someone told me that Hardy Davis is a part-time preacher. So this: GOD will not be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.

  2. Nope. Nope. Nope. Any press conference called should have yielded answers to those questions being posed in the public as well as the actual charges in the ethics investigation. To call a press conference to say I did not do it and do not know who did it is just rediculous. He, at least, should have furnished names of who did it. Surely his office did not pay for, approve, and give the go ahead in something that he knew nothing about (wink, wink, nod, nod). Perhaps his responses would be different if he were asked questions under oath.
    I know nothing about an ethics investigation. Will he and others have to testify under oath? Who will actually be doing the investigation? What are the penalties if found guilty of ethics violations? Is any penalty more that just a reprimand and a slap in the wrist? And what about any actions possible for lying if it is proven that he did, indeed, lie.

  3. When you control 100% of the “press conference” and take no questions, is it really a press conference? Seems pretty cowardly to me. He could have made his denials with a memo and saved everyone the trouble of showing up. Reminds me of the end of The Wizard of Oz… “pay no attention the the man behind the curtain!!!”

  4. He is just trying to cover himself but we all know what went on.This guy won’t be gone soon enough!He is so full of it and used to be a preacher??I hope they dig deep into this and find out all they can about this Tonia Gibbons person!The mayor is up to his neck in hiding the truth but it will all come out this time.
