If you’re a public official and Elliott Davis shows up with his cameraman, you’re not having a good day. Elliott does the “You Paid For It” segments three times a week on Fox 2 here in St. Louis, and he’s very good at sticking his microphone in your face and not backing down until he gets an answer. Even then, he’s not afraid to put your phone number up on the screen and tell his viewers to call and bug you until you fix whatever’s wrong.
Today on my show, Elliott talked about the stories he’s done for the last 15 years, the results he’s gotten, and how he’s held these public servants accountable for their actions. He also talked about the story that almost got him killed — the bullet intended for him ended up in the shoulder of his photographer, Larry Washington, who survived a very close call but was out for two years.
