Deerfield Beach is holding a special election on July 19 to replace former District 2 Commissioner Sylvia Poitier — who’s facing five misdemeanor counts of falsifying public documents — and out of the four qualified candidates, one has already been accused of abusing public funds.
The Rev. Anthony L. Davis — a former Pompano Beach police officer, BSO deputy, and current church pastor — has been accused of qualifying for Community Development Block Grant funding by falsely stating on his application that he and his wife did not have any real property as assets.
In fact, an internal control review of the city’s community development division by forensic auditor Kessler International found that Davis and his wife were majority owners of one property and owners of four others.
That review led Chaz Stevens — “Best Gadfly” in New Times‘ 2010 Best Of edition — to file a complaint against Davis and his wife to the Broward State Attorney’s Office, alleging they made false statements to obtain property of credit.
