AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - New documents detail a state ethics complaint against Augusta Mayor Hardie Davis Jr.

Here’s a breakdown of the money:
- $858.38 - credit card payment - 3/2/20
- $1,500 - credit card payment - 9/15/20
- $29.99 to pay for BetterMe Application Subscription (which looks to be a health coach app)

Each of those items was not listed on his campaign contribution disclosure report, according to the complaint.
The complaint also alleges Davis failed to disclose spending about $6.099.64 and that he failed to disclose $10,276.39 in contributions.
The complaint comes nine months after News 12′s I-TEAM questioned the mayor about how he spent thousands of taxpayer dollars on city credit cards.
