    You know, if it wasn't so sad, this would be funny.

    Greg Davis, the mayor of Southaven, Mississippi, had billed taxpayers for over $170,00 in lavish parties, booze etc.

    But it’s the $67 for unnamed merchandise from Priape, a gay sex shop near the intersection of Church and Wellesley Sts.,(in Toronto) that has caused the biggest stir for Davis, who has previously run for office on a conservative, family-values platform.

    Here's the store's website NSFW

    More repressed self-loathing.

    It's a tradition!

    Much like certain pundits who rail against the Almighty :)

    What a dildo.

    (I'm referring to the politician himself.)

    I give this guy credit for coming out, unlike a lot of people who get caught with their hand in the gay cookie jar.

    But the problem remains that he was ripping off taxpayers.

    Now he'll play the persecution card.

    You're reaching for the mayor of some podunk shithole in Mississippi to make this point?

    Sounds desperate.

    It's the third (or fourth, depending on the count) largest city in the state and a nice little suburb of Memphis. It is far from a "podunk shithole."

    Davis and his wife just divorced last year, by the way.
