Mayor billed Southaven for gay shop buy

The Commercial Appeal reported it obtained Davis’ receipts through a Freedom of Information request to Southaven.

The newspaper reports Davis billed the city for expensive dinners and thousands of dollars in liquor. Although officials are allowed to charge for business meals, it was not immediately clear how many of Davis’ food and liquor purchases were for business.

The auditor’s office confirmed to The Associated Press on Friday that Davis billed the city for the $67 purchase at Priape, which describes itself on its website as “Canada’s premiere gay lifestyle store and sex shop.”

Davis would not comment on the expenses, saying his attorney had told him not to talk.

“I can’t say anything,” Davis told the AP on Friday.
