JACKSON, Miss. (AP, abc24.com) - The Mississippi auditor's office is demanding that fourth-term Southaven Mayor Greg Davis pay the city more than $170,000 for travel, stress counseling and other personal expenses billed to taxpayers.
Davis tells The Associated Press he's not sure how he will pay the demand, which is for $170,782.
Auditor Stacey Pickering issued the demand Wednesday after a seven-month investigation. There are no criminal charges.
Pickering says Davis caused a "betrayal of the public's trust" by billing for things such as a personal trip to Key West, Fla.
In July 2010, Davis traveled to an Arizona clinic for stress and anger management counseling, and Pickering says the city paid thousands.
Republican Davis ran unsuccessfully for Congress in 2008.
