  1. Deflect deflect blame someone else and deny…Hardie was a state representative he cannot claim ignorance of campaign laws and even if he did ignorance is no excuse for breaking laws. The very fact that he won’t answer sure smacks of guilt. Get him fitted for a orange jumpsuit so he can sit with Sias…

  2. It appears that Jim Cox knows his business well, and Mayor Davis continues to believe that his financial misdeeds will simply disappear. Hopefully, this mess will sidetrack Davis’s ambitions to continue in public service.

  3. No One is surprised by the crookedness coming out of Hardie Davis! No wonder Ed Tarver has no idea where the money was spent! The Davis travels to sites in other states had nothing to do with “governing” Augusta, that governing never occurred! This is a solid reason why Augusta and Richmond County NEED an independent audit from top to bottom! It is sad that our commissioners voted the audit down. Something smells!!

  4. Perhaps ask the interim administrator about any records that she can locate. I would be curious to see if she is straight forward – or deflective. And, again, where are the commissioners on this? Are they individually on record with their response?
