City council member in northeast Mississippi returns contribution to her Tupelo sorority

TUPELO, Miss. (AP) — A Tupelo City Council member has returned a campaign contribution to her local sorority chapter after the national organization challenged the gift.

City Councilwoman Nettie Davis reported the $500 return in her most recent campaign finance report.

The contribution was made two months ago from Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority’s Tupelo chapter, Nu Sigma Omega. Davis is the chapter president. Records show the group also made a $250 contribution when Davis ran four years ago.

The national sorority says the contribution violated its policy of remaining nonpartisan and not endorsing any candidates.

The group said it planned to investigate the matter.
