Today’s story is one of those things that could happen anywhere at any time.
At first glance, it’s just another story of a politician that was using the public coffers for his own benefit and enrichment. That is what in legalese is known as “embezzlement”. Embezzlement is a serious no no and can land one in The Big House for an extended period of time if convicted.
But, there is more to this story than meets the eye.
Please permit me to expound.
A Mississippi mayor accused of misusing taxpayer money to buy personal items was indicted Tuesday on embezzlement, false pretense and making fraudulent statements charges.
Southaven Mayor Greg Davis has been under scrutiny since November 2011, when the Mississippi Auditor’s office told him to repay $170,000 for allegedly improper billings, including travel, food, liquor and one bill for $67 at Priape. <—-remember this word.
Like I told you up there^^^, there’s seemingly nothing more to the story than a small town Mayor ripping off the citizens to whom he is sworn to serve.
