Issue Date: 1-Sep-1964
Description: A news release from Fred Davis and Rufus Jones. Davis and Jones were removed from their positions as auditors for the State Department of Revenue by Commissioner Donald King. The two men dispute public claims that their job performance was not satisfactory and suggest that they were removed because African-American organizations to which they belonged supported the governor's opponent, Ross Bass, in the August 6 primary election for the United States Senate.
