Stokes: I didn't sign nothing

WLBT reported last night a New Orleans bus company is going to sue Hinds County Supervisor Kenneth Stokes over an allegedly unpaid bus bill. No more details will be provided as we don't want to spoil the fun before you watch the video. Enjoy.

See yesterday's post about the Stokes press conference to see the entire statements made by the Supervisor.

I believe he said, "I didn't sign anything."

So who did Stokes pay? I thought the bus company was the only business that was owed money in this deal. And who told him he could use county money to charter a bus and then said he couldn't use the money. He of course uses the "they" word often. He is worse than Jello when it comes to getting a firm answer.

Interesting that when the news story first broke last year that Mr. Stokes said the bus company would be paid and that he was asking some churches to help pay the bill. Now, over one year later he vehemently denies signing anything. In his words, "The lies must stop".

One wonders with his proposal to hire an outside investigative team to look into the funding of the emergency operations fund and the dispute over how long the money will last, that he has not hired someone to investigate this and prove his innocence with the bus bill. No wait, they might find him guilty of not being entirely honest. "The lies must stop".

How long are the citizens of Hinds county and Jackson going to tolerate this type of buffoonery from the married duo? Someone please find him a tailor or tell him to grow longer arms.

Given that the signature is not in crayon, I'm inclined to believe Kennuff on this one.

Look, dat moneys went in what we calls de 'flexibility fund'. It can be use for all sorts of purpose. Dis partica-lahr time it were use to offset the hat fund which have run dry. You peepuls needs to get out my face! You ain't nuthin' but racimist comin' up in here axin' me dis.

Does he really speak like that?

He kinda looks like a Mon Chi Chi and I wonder where that $1000 dollars in that check went. Hhmmmm Maybe it went to buy his wife some new hats or dental work to cover up that gap in her teeth

11:43; Worse. Listen to the video.

So he solicited money from 2 churches for one thing, then gave the money to something/someone else? I believe that is fraud.

I would hate to see how much Sir Kenneth would sweat in July or August. The temp on the day of the video was what, 40 degrees.

I guess the stress of leadership is just too difficult for a mere mortal like me to comprehend.

And shadowfax, is "woods" (as in Ms Woods) more than one syllable? I am pretty sure that "peepuls" has at least four or five.

I promise that if Kenneth's constituents see this video and hear the details, his approval rating will go up. His supporters think just like he does. They are cut from the same cloth. That is why the man is unbeatable at the polls.

Sad but true.

Every time I see him mop his face with that hanky I'm expecting him to hold up a trumpet and break into Hello Dolly!

Yesterday, I noted that he lied during the "stop the lies" speech. Looks like 3 or 4 more folks have picked up on that.

Shadowfax said...

HAR! @ 2:28!

Here's my question. If the signature isn't his, why hasn't someone been arrested for forgery? Are there other county documents available to compare signatures?

Trust me that ain't CLOSE to his sig. Not close.

Figured it was secretary or wife.

Shadowfax said...

Point being, Stokes doesn't give a flyin' crap. He knows if the company sues him, the matter will handled in Jackson. And those who decide the outcome will be his 'peers'.

Plan 'B', if he gets sued, is to prevail on the church community to cook some chicken and raise some money to donate to him and the matter will be settled without him paying a personal dime. And since this whole thing is obviously 'racist', he will have no trouble raising the money to save himself.

Resume' building 101.

Please, cut Sir Stokes a break! He is my mentor and his wife is a hottie. Like Kenny, I am also a visionary. Below, I have outlined a 3-point plan to bring Mississippi out of its doldrums:

1). Buffoonery: demand a drone strike on at least three metro car dealerships. However, a reprieve will be granted to those who cease their cornball comedic routines. Plus a full year of penance cleaning toilets at the local animal shelter will be required. Note, no reprieve will be granted to "Crazy Mike" and team. Immediate ground intervention is necessary.

2). Marketing: Mississippi has the best looking women in the U.S. Capitalize on this by selling their used undergarments on the internet at an enormous markup. (Common practice in Japan.) If the price is reasonable, I may even purchase a few.

3). Blues Heritage: kidnap black males and hold them hostage in the Delta. Beat, starve, and force them to pick cotton seven days a week. Within six months, the cottage blues industry will be transmogrified into an entertainment megalith. American Idiot may even audition in Jackson.

My doctor told me on Friday that I may be certifiable. I agree. I hold multiple certifications.

um, I had no idea 'tokes could even write ????

Only in Jackson or Hinds County could Kenneth Stokes be elected to public office. There are people out there who want to send Jokes like Stokes to Rankin and Madison County. Tell you what......why don't we send Kenny Wyne Jones, Furr Smith and the Blackmonds down to Hinds County and you will have public entertainment 365 days a year. The bus company will never get its day in court. Judge Wise will put the case off for 100 years.

Maybe Mrs. Stokes should have taken her hat and fanned him because the more he lied, the worse he sweated,

This behavior continues to be unbelievable. I can't stand to watch the local news because of things like this.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

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.

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.
