DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- David Lee Davis, a jack of all trades -- one-time Daytona cop, twice-failed candidate for elected office, political consultant, blogger, and substitute teacher -- also was a suspected pedophile, who used his local church ties to give the appearance of piety and kindness -- was arrested earlier today at his workplace and hauled off to the Volusia County Branch Jail where he was being held without bond.
