And Michael Guest says whoooa....

Rankin-Madison District Attorney Michael Guest made this statement yesterday:


In response to comments regarding the investigation of the filming of Rose Cochran, I want it to be clear that the investigation is ongoing.  The Madison Police Department is working diligently to gather and analyze evidence in this case.  Until the investigation is complete, no person or persons have been cleared.  At the conclusion of the investigation, the Madison County Grand Jury will be presented the findings of the Madison Police Department and the Grand Jury will determine against whom indictments should be returned.  We request that the public be patient as this investigation continues to progress through the criminal justice system.

No surprise here.
Not sure McDaniel sees truth or facts as other than annoying inconveniences.

From whom are they gathering evidence? Don Clark?

I wonder what Thad has promised someone to keep this going as long as possible.The act of taking the pictures was a foul deed, but if you read the statute you will find that it would be difficult if not impossible to make anything more than a misdemeanor case against him.
I don't believe that anyone is going to be convicted of felony conspiracy in a misdemeanor case.
It appears that the "Old guard Republicans" have put on the tin foil hats!

Everyone that touched this is done in GOP politics and Mississippi. They will get the book thrown at them. F*&K with the future President Pro Tempore of the United States Senate and see what you get.

Can you imagine the partner meetings going on at Mayfield's firm right now?

At this point in time, most of this doesn't matter anymore. McDaniel is damaged goods simply by his association with these dunderheads in the Tea party. A vote for McDaniel is a vote for Obama and Reid, because McDaniel will lose to Travis Childers after this mess, and Democrats will carry this topic all the way to November.

Queen, you are so right.
Normal people know there are boundaries not to be crossed and that " the end justifying the means" is not just bad morally but strategically.

police investigations arent like on tv folks. they take time to develop. more is coming- this is just what the da has chosen to share at this point. just wait for it...

Yeah right 9:18. That is why the bond is so low. In your dreams. Those rednecks are TOAST.

Stupid, sophomoric, boorish, and goofy: all these terms apply. But criminal? Someone sneaks in and takes a photo, I can't see this being such a big deal. I guess a misdemeanor. I cannot see how Mrs. Cochran was "endangered". It is not like they took a photo of her getting out of the shower and loaded it onto a porn website. I will likely vote for Cochran, but this thing is getting blown way out of proportion. The paparazzi routinely do things worse than this.

McDaniel is DONE!!! He could save himself a lot of grief by withdrawing NOW!!!!

As much as people WANT this to be a lesser event, they are charged with felonies.

Cochrans people have been in politics way to long to not know this one--McDaniel could attack everything, and perhaps even to the point of mistress accusations. But once a minion took that photo, it was game on and theres too many favors out there around Mississippi. One call...thats all!

McDaniel will win 50.8%. The politburo is seen as vindictive and heavy handed. Democrats will flood the polls for McDaniel.

11:12, are you saying the DA has other arrests he knows he will make, but is waiting to make those arrests until a later time?

I may not agree with Chris McDaniel, but I have known him for 20 years. This ridiculous crap is not his style. He was a man of integrity when the rest of us were running around like idiots. He's a good guy. If you don't want to vote for him, don't, but don't slam his character based on what you've heard.

Literally can't stop laughing! Your jokes are TOO funny!

Kim Wade said...

This whole thing is a country version of Weekend at Bernies with Cochran camp holding his wife up as a campaign prop. Sad!

Has Thad paid the woman a visit since this all happened?

Thad and Rose's 50th wedding anniversary is the 6th of June. Why hasn't some family member posted a photo of the family from earlier times? Photos of "the other woman" romping around the World with Thad and photos of Kate with celebrities(Richard Gere). And those horrible comments of Rose as "that old woman." I'll be joining Anderson and the old gang at Nmisscommentor to vote for McDaniel...ABC(Anybody But Cochran).

Kim...Lordy...you are making it worse!
Please educate yourself on dementia and what those cursed with that disease may or may not need from family members.

McDaniel's supporters are just digging the hole deeper with every post.

And, while I tend to listen to XM and be entertained, I didn't have a negative opinion of you...no opinion at all really until you weighed in.

Wasting your time here Kim.

Most of the Cochran droolers posting at JJ are like that idiot Adam who calls your program.

Whoever is selling Adam plastic seat covers is making a bundle.

Still curious the number of dems who get on here and harp about the clarity and character of Thad. Follow that.

They're scared shitless of McDaniel.

NOT "they". Haley is the maniac wanting total control. Haley is behind the modern day politcal slave owners. Party doesn't matter, control and subjugation does.

I have no preference for CM or TC but this looks like a bugled, 3rd rate Watergate job that they knew about a month ago. CM should have gotten out in front of this the minute they found out about it. They didn't and that tells me they are not ready for prime time on the federal level. D.C. is a lot bigger shark tank than Jackson.

Anonymous said...

Bottom line, amateur candidate and staff. As 9:24 said, definitely not ready for prime time.

It's 5:30 a.m. on a Saturday morning. What time do they wake Thad up and roll the breakfast tray up to his bed? Someone needs to tell him it's the weekend and he can wear his Ole Miss jammies today.

Yesterday's Greenwood Commonwealth reported (via AP) that Clayton had tried twice before to photo Mrs. Cochran, but was unsuccessful.

2:47 pm, I'm judging his character by his words and deeds.

There is no question he'd have to approve the release that he had been vindicated.

That was a lie.

If he didn't know it was a lie, that's a complete lack of judgment and careless regard or understanding for truth.

Mayfield is an attorney. While he might be incompetent at planning clandestine activities, it test credulity to think he wouldn't consult with someone in authority in the campaign. And, it is rather incredible to think anyone in a campaign in authority would keep the candidate in the dark on something like this.
And, then there's the timing problem. You have to believe there's no connection between the filming and the decision to use the issue of Cochran's wife being here in St Cs in the campaign.

good one, 5:34am!

Anonymous said...

8:44 - you have nailed it. despite all the McDaniel attempts to either cover it up, ignore it, claim it is insignificant, or
try to blame it on Cochran (or Bush or anybody else).

It strains credulity to think that Mayfield and his cronies did this without any conversation with the campaign. It also shows the stupidity of the Tea Party.

Six Decades Is Enough said...

All the drama aside, do we really want continued 'representation' from a guy who they hold a teleprompter card up in front of that says, "I'm Thaad Kackrun. And I approooved this ad"?

Take five. Try it one more time Senator. This time don't dart your eyes up to the left.

He says "this message" not "this ad". I point this out to show how ADD you are. No credibility. Move on.

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.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. 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.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
