“The mother of another girl told the JOLT that Davis’s troubling behavior has continued more recently, with her daughter bothered by interactions with him when she was just 13 years old.
“The accusations — which Davis denied, saying he doesn’t “even know” the people raising the issue — were made on Facebook in recent days, after the August 4 primary election.”
