Editorial: Mayor’s ‘tomfoolery’ needs to be checked

Author

Date

Mayor Hardie Davis Jr. is in a tailspin, and his tomfoolery is front and center for Augusta to see.

In a hastily thrown-together press release that barely gave anyone time to show up, Davis referred to allegations of him doing anything wrong as "tomfoolery."

  1. He is a crook and should have to pay every cent back on his credit card that he cannot produce receipts for. Also? That should be reported to the IRS as supplemental taxable income. Wake up Augusta! Demand a audit!!

  2. Thank God for the Augusta Press. This is our newspaper now even if it’s not technically paper. Let’s get behind it folks. Exposing corruption in our “leaders” is the beginning of the end of our helplessness: helpless in seeing what the mayor was getting away with, helpless seeing Sias continuing to be paid as his corruption trial drags on; helpless in the face of violent crime, gangs, car jackings, break ins, worthless committees (for example redistributing) etc. once we k ow how bad things are I’ve got to believe we’re going to demand better when we go to the polls.

  3. Davis has broken the trust of the citizens of Augusta.
    And, he continues to assail the community, stealing it’s hard earned money. Given everything our community has endured with the economy and the virus, he lies and cheats his fellow Augustans. Has this preacher no shame?

  4. The Davis legacy for we voters is one of travel to democrat mayors meetings across the nation on taxpayer dollars, hiring excess staff, cronyism and of course his unmarked new security vehicle to “protect” him from someone!! Is it any wonder that details of credit card charges are not available! PROSECUTE!

  5. If he was a Republican mayor, Biden’s DOJ and IRS would have investigated, indicted, called every media outlet, and perp-walked him out of The Marble Palace in time to hit the 6 o’clock news. Disgusting!

  6. How much more proof and evidence needs to come out on Mayor Hardie Davis’s apparent corruption before Federal and State Law Enforcement Officials will investigated? Unfortunately Mayor Davis thinks he is untouchable and will continue his Spend and Lie Campaign.
