Cheryl & Elizabeth go to the circus too.

Cheryl shows up at the Circus:



and Elizabeth Crisp provides pretty good coverage in the Clarion-Ledger this morning. Here is a passage from her story with a great quote:

"Andrew McMillin said questions remain about vote totals. He noted that at one precinct, 192 people signed in but only 20 votes were recorded. "It appears they want to go ahead with the certification, despite the discrepancies," he said.
McInnis said he did not find anything unusual about the sign-in discrepancy.
"There are almost always more signatures than there are votes," he said. "That always happens."
He said it's due in part to people not voting in every race, and sometimes people sign in but do not vote.
"

Hinds County GOP Chairman Pete Perry had something to say about it:

"Despite McInnis' insistence that it's not unusual to have more signatures than votes, Perry said it has been rare in his experience.
"If those numbers aren't the same, you should be able to identify why," said Perry, who has worked on election challenges across the state.
He also said he has never seen someone sign in and then not vote
."

Stay tuned.

The Democratic Party runs Hinds County and Jackson.

The Democratic Party in Hinds County and Jackson is dysfunctional exceeding definition and beyond salvage.

The Democratic Party in Hinds County is irreparably fucked up.

NO AMOUNT OF RE-BRANDING CAN SAVE HINDS COUNTY AND JACKSON.

You can effort to blow all the smoke up the asses of this MSA that you want. But in the end all that the rest of the metro area sees is y'all, bullshit artists, sitting there straining to blow smoke up people's asses.

YOU LIVE IN DENIAL.

This election is bad flawed. Even if it is a primary run by the party, are there no laws which must be followed?

Mac thinks " da' community " still beez wif him.

Wake up Malcolm , they never liked you from the start.

You are a little to fat and pink for most voters in 2011 Hinds County.

Why you did not run as an independent is the big question .

Snopes said...

822 wow.......why all of the anger. Why don't you get involved or be happy with you decision to move. Why must you criticize others?

8:22 you'll need to add Snopes to the roster of the Hinds County Cult of Misguided Apologists.

I suspect we will never know who got the most votes in the sheriff's race.

So, who is to blame? Circuit Clerk?

Anonymous said...

The Parties host the primary elections, not the circuit clerk.
There seems to be a lot of people pointing fingers at others but in the end it would appear the responsibility lies with the Hinds County Democratic Party, not the election commission nor the circuit clerk.

So. What can we outraged voters do about this? are we required to accept this botched election? just because mcinnis says so? if that is the case, then why not just allow him to appoint his candidate? there must be an option for us here who expect elections to be run with honesty and integrity

The bottom line is that the fraud of Democratic primaries in Hinds County and Jackson has now and forever been exposed. Going forward no candidate should ever possess any expectations of fairness in a contested primary. And once these same Democrats have elected themselves into each of the Election Commission seats then all confidence of fairness in any general election conducted within Hinds County will be lost.

There is a reason why Bennie Thompson wants all the Hinds and Jackson precincts in his district.

Shadowfax said...

"A little to fat and pink"? Is that code for "We ain't got room no more for white folks"?

Wondering what 'Detroit South' will do when it runs off every last white taxpayer? Then will they resort to naming potholes for black activists and each other?

Anonymous said...

Dorsey Carson should wake the fuck up at these results. His own party does not want people like him.

Snopes said...

Shadowfax, Why must you resort to name calling by using terns like "Detroit South" why not just focus on your own back yard.

Problem is that the black middle class is leaving Jackson in droves for better schools outside of JPS and less crime. It is a race-neutral economic flight.

Anonymous said...

asking again. what is the solution for those of us who are outraged with this? it is painfully obvious that this is a scam. a farce. a lie. how do we as citizens effect a change in what appears to be the road we are marching down? is there any option?

There's nothing wrong with the process - the problems like with the humans who run it. The mistakes that have the sheriff candidates up in arms were human mistakes, not systemic issues. The parties run their own primaries. They recruit, train and pay poll workers and managers and resolution board/committee members. The Circuit Clerk is simply the pass out and collection point for absentee ballots. Fair elections start with honest people on the party executive committees. From there we need more intelligent and impartial people to serve as poll managers and resolution board members. We need dedicated and smart election commissioners to provide the training. Although it's a challenge that may never be completely met, the system will be fine once there are good people in every role. Bill Billingsley

Shadowfax said...

My comment was in response to 'too fat and too pink'. That is obviously a comment directed at the white race, not the black middle class. I see no problem with labeling Jacktown 'Detroit South'. If you can refute my label with facts or a logical correction, please have at it.

Signed,

Not fat but pink

Snopes said...

SF, My point is not to debate your assertion as you have clearly made up your mind, But to try and understand why you would spend time putting down a place where you don't live. If you are so smart in your choices, Why not be satisfied. I truly am trying to figure out what motivates people to tear down a city that they have decided to leave and to tear down those that are trying to make it a better place.

Snopes said...

If I must refute your label than I would point to the large amount of private investment made downtown in past few years.

Micah said...

Ok, Tyrone Lewis won enough said. Now watch the fun begin!

Anonymous said...

There is more federal, state and local taxpayer investment downtown than there is private investment.

Speed's new building being the one major exception.

Shadowfax said...

Snopes: Other than Speed dumping a load of personal cash downtown (AKS pissing it away), I'm aware of zero 'private investment' downtown. If you count all the proposed investment scams that fizzled before they became shovel ready, you might have a point, however.

PS: You have no idea where I live; however, residing inside a sewage lagoon is not required for one to describe the smell.

Kingfish said...

OK, NO more downtown v everywhere else crap. You've done it on enough threads lately so go to one of those. Stick to the post topic.

When the crooks control the law, time to get the hell out, quickly!

I suppose Barb Dunn was on a smoke break when all the votes were appearing, disappearing, reappearing...

Anonymous said...

10:55, as has been pointed out here many times already, Dunn has nothing to do with these results other than being a receiving/disburing/storage point. Once the ballots are received in her office, she stamps them as received, gives them to the Dem/Rep parties, and the parties then process them. All documents are stored in Dunn's office, but the parties are responsible for their maintaining the documents.

In this case, the Dems have not done a proper job of handling the election materials. And, assuming McMillan contests this election, the specifics of the way this has been handled will become quite evident.

Its not over yet - the fat (and pink) lady hasn't sung.

Anonymous said...

The fat, pink lady is not going to sing! McMillin will not concede to a low life thug. he knows good and well this race has been intentionally manipulated by many in the democrat party. If these idiots are stupid enough to certify it - the fun begins. I hope many, many of these people go to jail just like the NAACP executive Lessadolla Sowers did in Tunica on July 31. 5 years the scum gets behind bars to think about how she abused the rights our ancestors died for. I hope she is soon introduced to the biggest butch in the prison. She voted 10 times in 10 different names. No doubt we will find out dead people voted on Aug 2, 2011. Can't wait!!! And that McInnis freak is the first to go down. It will be fun to watch.

Anonymous said...

Dead people did vote in this election! And people voted multiple times! And people voted in Hinds County who don't live in Hinds County! With the shoddy way the voting polls were run, I could have said I was Big Bird and those dunces would have given me a paper and let me sign in and vote.

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.

Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. 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. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
