Smackdown on Southaven's mayor

Southaven Mayor Greg Davis meets with auditors - Action News 5 - Memphis, Tennessee
Mississippi State Auditor Stacey Pickering took only minutes to inform Southaven Mayor Greg Davis Wednesday that he needs to repay the city more than $170,000. An investigation into the mayor's spending habits on the city's dime began in April. His travel expenses recently included a two-week trip to an upscale counseling center in Scottsdale, Arizona. A lot of us knew Davis was going to be ordered to pay some of the money back, but the amount was surprising. Davis said he was stunned by the amount. He called it a lesson learned and said receipts would be more detailed moving forward. However, he still has a travel budget and plans to use it. Wouldn't we all like to travel or buy clothes without having to pay for it.
