Rudy gives Tim $150,000 for campaign

From the campaign finance reports filed yesterday: Rupert L. "Rudy" Johnson donated $150,000 on June 30, 2011 to the Tim Johnson campaign. Rudy is the brother of the Madison County Supervisor. Report

Absolutely amazing.... Rudy is the Executive Director of the Golden Triangle PDD. Whose that other Rudy guy that we have read about on this blog!?

Family member helping to fund a campaign; very common.

Unless I've missed something, Warnock isn't the brother of anyone on the board of Supervisors.

Oops. Total brain cramp there. Obviously, for some reason I saw "Rudy" and assumed "Warnock."

Mea Culpa.

I find two things interesting:

1. How can this Rudy Johnson afford a $150k contribution when he makes a little more than $200k/yr according to the most recent Form 990?

2. Re that same 990, funny how they made almost $2 mil in bingo monies but that isn't listed as one of their services on their website.

Eric Hamer is the gift that keeps on giving. $2,500 to Timmy. How much is in for total between all of the supe incumbants?

Clicked on the article assuming I'd find more proof that Tim's in bed with Warnock. The title of the article needs to make it a little more clear that this Rudy is Tim's brother. Also I looked at the actual report, and the "donation" is checked off as a loan to Tim, not a gift. Might want to get that straight kingfish.

Having some fun with y'all.

Rudy Johnson is also running for sheriff in Oktibbeha County.

12:18, really? Don't see any filings on the SOS website.

12:49 - I'm seeing red and yellow signs all over Starkville telling me to vote for Rudy. He also has a facebook page "Support Rudy Johnson for Oktibbeha County Sheriff". Sounds like he is running to me.

How many rocket scientists does it take to figure this out? Warnock has funnelled a sh*tload of money through brother Rudy to Tim. Warnock also floated the campaign of Crosby four years ago in Madison County. Crosby was supposedly committed to the improvement of Hoy Road and other infrastructure projects in Madison, but flipped on all of it when Warnock opened his purse. All of that notwithstanding, what more can Tim-Elvis do with contibutions? More sh*t-grinning ads? Is it possible Tim Johnson and Robert Graham were twins separated at birth?

J. Kev said...

Steve Vassallo, then Mary's head of the Swedish American Chamber of Commerce, gave $27,000 to Crosby's campaign. Reckon he got a salary adjustment?

Also, when I click on the "post a comment" link, I get a "503" error message. I have to click on "read more" to comment.

The Kingfish?

Apparently, jackassery is only permitted on folks that kingminnow doesn't like.

10:22--Well, DUH...It is his site, so your "point" is a given. If that is your point, I mean...

Shadowfax said...

Vasallo was Crosby's campaign manager in Crosby's virgin run four years ago. It's no secret that Mayor Mary and the Board supported Crosby. He made a multitude of commitments (known as promises) regarding improvements in and around the Madison area. Nothing wrong with any of that other than the fact that he abstained when the votes came around. Vasallo has always done Mary's bidding, so he too was doing a little 'fund funnelling'. Rudy Warlock chipped $11K into Crosby's pocket last time and even more THIS time. I am sad to learn that Warlock is a Dawg fan. He behaves so, oh, Ole Missish.

Rudy "Warlock"? - if that's not a typo it's brilliant political theater.

Point very well made on how much an PDD executive director makes and how could he afford such a loan/gift. Maybe he has business on the side and maybe the IRS will take a close look at his business??? Love the Rudy angle!!!Kingfish, you are the best!!!! So with the 150,000 from brother and 10,000 from Richard skinner- he only raised around $15,000 and did I see where Dick Hall raised $50,000. Hall kicks Elvis's Butt
in fund raising and I believe will
win by a large margin!!!!

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell.
