Augusta Mayor Hardie Davis Jr. continues to ignore city policy when it comes to spending public money.

Most recently, he has hired temporary employees, paid interns and political consultants in his office without going through either the Human Resources Department or the Procurement Department....

  1. Since a regular citizen cannot make a request for investigation to the GBI, will some elected official make that happen? There is so much smoke here; something is definitely on fire & Mayor Davis has the matches in his hand!

  2. Again Davises arrogance is on full display!He will not be gone soon enough!All of these assistants and extra help are just ridiculous!Nobody loves Hardee like Hardee does!He needs to be fined and jailed for all of his “in your face” acts of defiance and for all of the laws he has already broken and continues to break.He is a big “nobody” and will be unemployed soon.Let’s see if that will humble
    him at all!His mayoral term has been “all about him” and nothing to promote our city.

    • Don’t count on him being unemployed, Biden just put Atlanta’s failed mayor, Kiesha Lance Bottoms, in the White House. Hardie is just the type the Democrats love. They’ll make a place for him.

    • He has patterned his office just like his mentor, Obama did and still does, because we know who is running the govt. He doesn’t care about laws and remember they were made by old fat white men, per Obama, and this is the same attitude Hardie has.

  3. Can we just hire the consultant and fire Hardie? Looks like she’s doing the job of the mayor. Nothing will be done to him because he’s out of there in a few months. But someone needs to take his checkbook away.

  4. No one has to make an official request of law enforcement agencies for them to investigate Davis. I’m sure many agencies read these articles and they could initiate an investigation on their own. The reasons they don’t investigate him are unknown to me. Davis is obviously a criminal and needs to be prosecuted.

  5. WHY ISN’T THIS CROOK IN JAIL??? What has happened to the “investigation of his crooked credit card fraud? Is this a Pelosi husband, Hunter Biden type investigation where democrat politicians skate?? This is a disgrace for “law enforcement”! Obviously, as addressed above, Hardie is PERFECT for higher level democrat higher office!!

  6. I wrote letters to Governor Brian Kemp and GA AG Chris Carr in 2021 requesting a GBI investigation of Davis’ illegal activities and the failure of the commissioners to take action to stop him. Neither responded or acknowledged receipt of the letters. It is a sure bet the Biden DOJ will do nothing. It ludicrous that a judge must be petitioned to impanel a grand jury. We’re being forced to protect ourselves from violent crime. Now we have to arrest, indict, and try criminals on our own? Sounds like vigilante justice is around the corner. Davis may be tarred, feathered, and run out of town on a rail if the authorities don’t act.

  7. This crook is defrauding the citizens of Augusta and being allowed to do it. It seems like the majority of Commissioners see nothing wrong. People, it is time to clean house. Vote these people out of office. Could it be that Davis has something on these Commissioners? Why can’t the taxpayers of Augusta seek criminal charges? He is stealing our money and laughing in our faces.
