Southaven Mayor to Pay State Out of Paycheck?

Posted: Updated:
Southaven, Ms -

Tuesday night, the Mississippi State Auditor's Office told Southaven Mayor Greg Davis, enough is enough. If the embattled Mayor doesn't pay the more than 73 thousand dollars he owes the city, he won't get paid.

They filed a civil suit against Davis in Hinds County Court, citing MS Code 7743.

The auditors say that until Davis or his bonding company pays the money he owes, all of his paychecks will go towards the $73,915 he owes the state.

This stems from an investigation last year that found Davis had misused over $100,000 worth of taxpayer money on personal expenses. Davis paid back a portion of that money after receiving donations from private citizens.
