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.
The Mayor has been charged with a bunch of other shit also and could very well end up serving a lengthy prison term.
But the best part of the story is yet to come.
Remember that word that I asked you to keep in mind? Priape. That’s French for “Priapos”. What is “Priapos? This is “Priapos”: In Greek mythology, Priapus or Priapos (Ancient Greek: Πρίαπος), was a minor rustic fertility god, protector of livestock, fruit plants, gardens and male genitalia. Priapus is marked by his absurdly oversized, permanent erection, which gave rise to the medical term priapism.
Do you see where this is going? No?
Let me splain.
NSFW Material Comin’ Up
The good Mayor spent at least $67 of taxpayer money at a place called Priape. Priape has to do with weenies and erections. OK, one more hint. EXTREME NSFW HOMO ALERT! This is Priape.
Yes! The Mayor is a Goober Gobbler!
He has been married for 18 years to Suzann and is the father of three daughters. Listen to what Mrs. Mayor Homo has to say about her husband, ‘Greg is a wonderful husband and girl-daddy,’ Suzann Davis was quoted as saying about her husband. ‘He can fix a broken toilet —- and do one of the best ponytails you have ever seen!’ Well, hell! Not only is the Mayor a great homo husband, he can fix toilets, make super ponytails and is a wonderful girl-daddy to top it all off. I bet he’s a fabulous decorator too.
I’m sure those are qualities that will serve the Mayor well as he enters the next phase of his life as a prison bitch. I mean, being able to “do one of the best ponytails you have ever seen” is certainly a resume enhancer in The Big House. And fixing broken toilets? To die for!
Oh, one more thing. The part about being a “girl-daddy”? That should be very appealing to a certain segment of the prison population.
Look, I don’t give a shit whether this guy is a homo, a hetero or a switch hitter, that’s his own bidness. What I do care about is that he stole from the very people who entrusted to him the Office of Mayor of Southaven, Mississippi and the duties and responsibilities of said office.
Instead, he screwed ’em. Now it’s his turn to get a good fucking – in the State Pen.
