(Jackson, MS) Former Southaven Mayor Greg Davis has been told he must repay $73,915.27 to the state for expenses for which he was reimbursed when he was mayor.
Davis has already paid back $96,000 of the $170,000 he was originally ordered to pay.
Some of those expenses included expensive meals, trips, and even purchases at an adult book store in Canada.
Davis had appealed the original order but the court found, ‘all counterclaims proposed by Davis are without merit and area summarily dismissed.”
“This investigation began more than three years ago, and we have remained committed to protecting the taxpayers of Southaven during this time,” Mississippi Auditor Stacey Pickering said. “Prosecuting public corruption is not easy, but elected officials must be held accountable for their actions and I am pleased with today’s ruling.”
