More Dupree shenanigans. Is Hattiesburg Canton?

Update: It gets MUCH better. 55 minutes of surveillance footage from that night is missing. Just routine. City says cameras shut down after a long period of inactivity. Um, yeah.

600 absentees. Unlocked City Hall and Vault. Nearly half the affidavit ballots tossed. Now a Hattiesburg resident says Dupree people voted for Dupree in his place. WDAM reports:

"HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -A young Hattiesburg resident claims a member of Hattiesburg Mayor Johnny DuPree's campaign team drove him to a voting precinct and then, against his will, voted in his place on Tuesday.

Mitchell Carter, 18, said that on Tuesday an unnamed member of the DuPree campaign drove by his home and offered to pick him up and drive him to the Rowan precinct a few blocks away.

Carter said he didn't realize the people taking him to the precinct were campaigners at first. Carter said he was offput by the rhetoric coming from the workers because he had planned on voting for Dave Ware. "You know they were all for DuPree. Like everyone in the car had DuPree on their shirts, DuPree on the side of their car, and, you know, we were riding by people with Dave Ware signs, and they said, ''Look at these fools.'"

Carter claims he was then escorted inside by a DuPree campaigner who followed him to his polling station. "When she came in there, I felt awkward, you know, because she thought I was supposed to vote for DuPree, and she came in there, put my card in and everything, and I thought she was just going to tell me how to do it."

According to Carter, the worker not only stayed with him, but she worked the machine herself, voting for DuPree and other candidates on his behalf.

"It just happened that quick. Like, oh my gosh, I just been like voted for...like someone voted for me like I didn't want him. And after that, it was the end of it," said Carter." Rest of the story

Since all voter fraud in Mississippi involves democrats...may we should change the Irish word used, "shananigans" to "Shanaynayians"

What's laughable is the idea that voter i.d. will solve voter fraud issues. It seems that the whole system is corrupted if anyone is allowed by the poll workers to walk into a voter booth with the voter.

Tell you what 11:39. If you live in Hinds County go over to the county webpage and hit the link "Where Do I Vote". Punch in your street name and look around. There are only 2 voters living in my Fondren home but the database of "active" voters shows 5 registered voters at my address. I know who the other 3 are. They are dead and have been for a long time but when it comes to the voter rolls in a Democrat stronghold like Hinds County you never die. My sweet next door neighbor died almost a decade ago. But she's still registered to vote. I see her name on the Precinct 17 voter list every election. You can be naive and believe if you must that the dead aren't voting but they are. VoterID won't solve all the voting fraud issues and no one honestly considering the issues claims that it will. VoterID also won't stop all the dead from voting but it sure as heck will stop 95% of them from doing so.

Assisted voting is allowed but is rampantly abused.

I have no doubts the story is true.

Witnessed a tall African-American woman help more than a dozen people vote at Spann in 2008.

She did not have a quiet voice.

She told every one of them to vote for Obama.

Complained to poll workers.

They said there was nothing they could do to stop her because the voters were stating they needed assistance.

Every voter said the same thing about needing assistance.

It was obvious they had been coached to memorize a script.

11:39 here. I'm ALL for voter id. But the problems go WAY beyond the identity of the voter. If you had legitimacy on every level of the process, voter id wouldn't be necessary. Also, do you think those checking the ids of the voters in these problem precincts will bother with id anyhow? The system is so corrupt that anything other than wholesale culture change within the process will leave you foaming at the mouth over the ridiculous nature of the blatant corruption.

....and you're naive to think that it will affect 95% of voter fraud. I wish you were right. But these poll workers are WATCHING these shenanigans take place right in front of them! They will laugh at the notion that they are supposed to be carding these living and dead voters.

No one is ever going to do anything meaningful with voter fraud cause its so hard to catch. Its controlled at the point of vote. Someone would have to put hidden cameras in every voting booth to catch them and then that might not work. You cant use a spy because they all know each other from working the voting precinct year after year. The only real way to eliminate it would be to have state agents man every voting precinct and not allow ANY locals to be involved. Cost would be to great and That would require extensive revision of the voter laws. That aint going to happen. Then there are the ABSENTEE votes. These are easier to manipulate. If someone has a good idea..throw it out there and lets hear it.

The most important question about the video report...who is the hot reporter?

Anonymous said...

Kingfish, any chance you have a link to the ballot box article in the update?

Anonymous said...

You beat me to it 2:23. Her name is Rachel Beech .
And because she was a WLBT intern a few years ago, I believe should should be included in the next Hot reporter poll.

What's the latest on all the absentee ballots sent to the jail? As far as who the reporter is, that's why they sign off at the end of their report with station id and their name.

Appears to be Rachel Beech. According to WDAM.

Kingfish said...

You really want the truth on why I didn't do the poll for awhile?

The talent kind of dried up for awhile. New reporters in town went from being hot chicks to emos.

I still don't think Canton is correct and I commend Ray Rosamond for going door to door and checking if anyone is living at those addresses and/or they bare lots.

Maybe we need the NSA to monitor our elections.

"If you had legitimacy on every level of the process, voter id wouldn't be necessary."

Damn 1:57; You mind if I write that down?

Anonymous said...

Yup, sure. The old whole loaf or nothing strategy. If it can't be fixed completely top to bottom don't fix nothing. 1:57 is a wannabe who got their bell rung then bagged the rest of the game on the sidelines.

I now know how to capture a good BVAP % for R candidates and it has always been staring me in the face: hot girls. Just have hot girls cruise around the neighborhood, pick-up guys and walk them right into the booth.

Anonymous said...

They don't have any good ideas. They just throw out the "voter id solution" (which I voted for, but know it won't fix much) and hope for the best. They're really just content with pissing off Rickey Cole and the like. I say you DO put mics and cameras in each voting station and record this stuff as it happens. It's when the first two dozen go to jail for voter fraud or intimidation that you begin to get the "whole loaf".

Anonymous said...

After I thought about it, kingfish is correct.

Reporter hot'ness has declined in the Jackson news market.

Monica Hernandez will forever be # 1 with many of us. WWL is lucky to have her.

Back to the topic, ...Hattiesburg has been using the
Canton & Fayette election model for quite awhile.

Why is anyone surprised ?

Video surfaces showing 'gentleman' entering vault where unsecured ballots sit. Had the races been reversed, black SUVs would be all over Hattiesburg.

Speaking of media hotties; have you noticed that 16 WAPT has hired Eric Law. He does the early morning weather, replacing Megan, who left. Who the hell interviews these people???

Pugnacious said...

The biggest stink in H'Burg is the USA Yeast imbroglio brought about by MDA, Johnny Dupree and a well known attorney in State politics respected for his expertise in contract law. The solution to undue the damage will cost residents over $1.5,000,000,000. The lagoons were never designed to treat the effluent from USA Yeast. The bigger question is why the Mississippi DEQ did not intervene with warnings of the design limitations before the ten-year contract was signed.

There are many unusual things here in Hattiesburg.. voting was just the tip... the average income for the workers is about $35,000.00 a year... so how can all these african americans afford all these $200 to $ 300 thousand dollar homes? They also drive pretty new looking cars and trucks and all sorts of bling added to them... my question is who is footing the bill on it all? The race card is always being played out whenever you notice things are not quite right in the neighborhood. That is because they do not want you to know all the deals on how they work the system to be found out.

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.
