The Branding of the Queen?

These flyers about Madison Mayor Mary Hawkins-Butler appeared on cars in several church parking lots last Sunday:



So who is responsible for this one?  Greg Brand? The Tea Party? Someone else? Speculate away.

Mary has more enemies than friends. She can't win a statewide race.

I predict she remains in her current role until she decides to retire.

I wish Mary had been mayor of Jackson instead of Harvey J....

Agree with 6:34.......seems to have no problem keeping her job.

Whoever wrote this piece of tripe accused her of everything except shooting JFK.

State Auditor? I've never heard that even whispered. The Queen would have done that years ago if she wanted it. Clearly, as this trash features "Charles C. Johnson" in bold type, this leads to the tea party and God forbid the Widow Mayfield. Do they have color printers in Jones County? #LongLiveTheQueen

I knew Mark. Mark was more dignified than this. He would not approve.

7:44- Mark's dignity did not, it seems, stop at abusing the privacy of a helpless old woman.

7:18 am... where the heck have you been? The Clarion Ledger ran an article about her running a couple weeks ago.

Mary must be INSANE!!!! She is supporting TEA PARTY ACTIVIST and McDaniel financial supporter JOEL BOMGAR for State Rep in the 58th dist. The letter went out this weekend. WTF? WAKE UP MADISON....THE TEA PARTY IS COMIMG BACK and the MAYOR is so scared of them she has joined them just to get them to back off!!!

Anonymous said...

@7:44 But taking pics of people in nursing homes he would approve...??? ur insane!!!

The cats out of the bag. Pat Bruce of the Madison County Conservative Coalition aka TEA PARTY sent a letter out this weekend with Joel Dumbgar supporters names on it. Mayor Mary's name was there. Why would a true republican and Thad supporter get behind the Tea Party???? Guess we have our answer now...they intimidated her this weekend. These people will stop at nothing till they take over the GOP in Mississippi...and they are starting in Madison. God help us!

Anonymous said...

@8:24 OR maybe she just saw in McDaniel a narcissistic loser and in Bomgar she sees someone who's in it to serve someone other than himself?

Anonymous said...

This goes to show you how powerful the tea party is. Everyone said they were dead after the senate race loss. Now the Mayor of Madison has joined them. What next, the Guv gonna be a tea party man? We already know Speaker Gunn tried to appoint one to the school board but he was defeated in the senate. Maybe TATER will join them as well

Anonymous said...

@8:24 you obviously don't know Joel or Tea Party people. Joel is using this to run for Gubnor so he tells people.

Agree with what 9:17 said.

Besides that, any flyer that refers to Charles Johnson as a "reporter" is full of crap. This is something you see in Hinds County, not Madison.

"I wish Mary had been mayor of Jackson instead of Harvey J...."

So do many of us Madisonians - more than she realizes.

And speaking of narcissistic losers......

Fun reading the rantings of all the "true republicans" here @ JJ.

Tea party please calm down. You are screwing everything up by splitting the repubs.

Hey kingfish, how come everytime I try to look at JJ on my iPhone/iPad I constantly get redirected to YouTube?? It's a pain.

Anonymous said...

WOW!!! Just saw the letter from Pat Bruce of the MCCC. Its says the Asst. Dist Atty Dow Yoder for Madison is publicly supporting him. That's a major violation. Judges and prosecutors can not publicly support anyone in a political race. How many of these people actually know their name is on this list?

Anonymous said...

I don't see Greg Brand in this one, don't think he would have a dog in this hunt. Besides he is an avowed Cochran man and would never take a shot at Mary if it hurt Thad. It looks like a copycat trying to lay the groundwork for John Reeves, et al, to file lawsuit in Fed court for some type of civil rights violation but I don't rule out a pissed off tea bag.

Tea party is still there. They have troops. What they need is message discipline, the ability to handle constructive criticism, and some leadership.

@10:40 who knows what people have a dog in the hunt...Mary is supporting BomBomgar and he is BIG TIME Tea PArty and Mary was Big time Thad. So Brand could be involved cause nothing is making since right now.

Holly Molly....Madsion Mayor has gone to the dark side and is supporting the Tea Party. WOWZA!!

Mary is nothing but a two bit liar that fleeces the electorate and dupes them into reflecting her for infinity.

She lied about the Walmart (Madison's not for sale)

She lied about Mr. Rice and his "eyesore"

She lied about the peacocks


She lied about the apartments that were slated to come into Madison.

She, by her lonesome self, has cost the city hundreds of thousands in lawyer fees because of her insane antics, not to mention thousands in having to remove the 8' tall urns from the CVS.


Yet, the dolts that keep on voting for her will do so because they love to sit 1/2 hour every workday waiting to get out of town.

That she and Mr. Mary Hawkins Butler are indebted to GoNad Cochran, lol funny.

Wonder if Mary will support McDaniel now if he runs for Guv or Left Guv.... She is Tea party now maybe she did this to get support for her State Auditor campaign.

Anonymous said...

If Greg Brand is involved, nothing is off limits...he's the goon that got that goof-ball Ronnie Lott elected Chancery Clerk...little Piggy Tail Lott. Surely Mary is smarter than to hitch her wagon to Brand or Lott.

Anonymous said...

Was Mark Mayfield somehow connected to the nursing home incident? Possibly; but those who knew Mark (including myself) will not believe it. He was an extraordinarily fine gentleman.

I agree with the commenter who said Mark would not have approved of the flier.

Lets put politics aside and remember that the Mayfield family was destroyed in this incident. Some compassion for the family is needed.

I agree with 10:40 about Brand not being behind this (1) it is too slick for Brand; (2) he wouldn't do it because it has an attack on Thad; (3) he has no dog in the current hunt with Mayor Mary.

This has all the trappings of Tea Party. Every issue here goes direct to them starting with the the defense of Mayfield, and the fullside attack on Mayor Mary for that and multiple other sins.

While not in the defense of Mz Mary, I don't get the wholesale throwing her into the TP group just because she is supporting Bomgar. Granted, he is TP thru and thru, but the question is who will be his opponent(s). Remember the adage - the enemy of your enemy is your friend. Mary might be against someone else more than she is for Bomgar. No matter, I'm not ready to pitch her into that briar patch yet - at least politically. (Frankly, would like to literally see her thrown in a briar patch.)

Kingfish said...

Well, the problem is Mrs. Mayfield keeps filing charges so that keeps it alive in the media and make no mistake, she or her brother/attorney are trying to manipulate the media.

The so-called charges filed yesterday are not public. Can't get them from the clerk's office. The only way Pender got a copy was through a leak, and you can figure out where the leak came from. It wasn't the clerk's office. This is the second time this stunt has been pulled.

She may be dirty as a public toilet, but she's good for Madison. Otherwise, there are a bunch of money grubbing liberals out there looking to disguise themselves as Republicans get elected as mayor and remove the cities restrictions on multi-family zoning. If that happens, go ahead and sell your house and move further North.

I attended a meeting of the Central MS TP at which Charles C Johnson spoke and heard him attach Mary Hawkins, Pete Perry, Greg Brand and Haley and Henry Barbour in this "conspiracy" as he called it. Why would Brand go rogue from this group? At that meeting, Johnson did use that exact quote of Mary's "bloody fingerprints", so, I agree with earlier posters that this is Tea Baggers all the way or some crazy groundwork for a Mayfield lawsuit.

Anonymous said...

Mary wouldn't stand a chance statewide. Bomgar shouldn't be included with whoever slung this mud - he's always struck me as much more reasonable and responsible than most of the TP types. It would be refreshing to have a representative from Madison who actually passes legislation.

On the other hand, whatever happened to the rights of property owners to use their property to produce income in reasonable ways? There has to be a balancing of interests involved at some point. When does my interest in upholding my property values merit government action to prevent my neighbor for using his property in a legitimate effort to produce income? It is always interesting how different interests lead us to favor or disfavor government regulation of our lives.

I doubt Mary is behind anybody publicly this early, she's to smart for that. And, all you haters, she'll hold the job as long as she wants it! Look at Madison for crying out loud! It's a diamond in the metro rough!

Greg Brand is a long time Democratic party Operative. he is well know for smear campaign, lies, and anything that he can do to destroy people. Lott and Brand are best friends. Lott's campaign was full of lies, stolen property, threats and intimidation towards Overby's family and political supporters. Even his wife was threatened.

@2:23 obviously you haven't read that letter from Joel "Tea-Party" Bomgar. It specifically says Mary is a supporter of his.

Hey 2:06 all Bomgar is going to do is fight our public schools in Madison, organize Tea Party events in Madison, find other Tea Party people to run against incumbent Republicans. Thanks but NO THANKS

Anonymous said...

just heard from a Bomgar insider. They are gearing up to smear Mary for 3 years then run a Tea Party candidtate against her. They are also working to get people to run for all the BOS positions and city council. My source said that they are going to ride the McDaniel wave and their goal is to take over Madison County politics and Desoto. I asked if this was for real and they said VERY! This has all been in the planning for a year. Lott's race for chancery clerk confirmed to them that these races could be won with money and smear tactics. This news is very disturbing.

If Joel Bomgar is Tea Party, help me understand why these folks are on his campaign committee:

Mark Garriga: Attorney representing Thad against McDaniel.

Billy Mounger: He's as "establishment" as anyone. Hell, he build the MSGOP.

Leland Speed: Nuff said.

Joel's a common sense guy who knows how to create jobs, and that's the strongest, most diverse campaign committee you'll see for any legislative campaign next year.

@4:09 did it ever occur to you that these people are either Tea Party or had NO IDEA that he was. Joel worked hard for McDaniel, gave money to him, raised money for him. Joel has also given money to other Tea Party causes. Where have you been, under the IJUSTGOTINTERESTEDINPOLITICS ROCK?

Anonymous said...

I find it shocking that some people on here have no idea that Bomgar is full blown Tea Party. These are people who act they they know the guy. He3 wrote a long article blasting Cochran that was in the media. WAKE UP tards!!!!

Anonymous said...

Joel is an interesting and quite successful guy. A novice at politics but wants to get in knee-deep and quickly. Legislature might be an interesting place for him - but while he is running he is also trying to control several other legislative races around the state through a PAC he has created and funded. Wants to kick out what he considers to be 'bad' Republicans and replace with his choice - in DeSoto, Rankin, and throughout north MS. Based on how he is going about it, would bet the PAC backed candidates will be good Tea Partiers - (is that an oxymoron?) - because they need to think like he does.

The fact that many good 'establishment' types are supporting him, including Madison's Mayor. Don't think it is about the "Tea Party" as so many on here have jumped to the conclusion. Its more about supporting this candidate that has made a lot of money and has also contributed a lot of money to various candidates.

You mention Mounger? Read his book - he points out that you can't raise money for your causes without giving when others call you for their causes. Bomgar has given - so its easier for him to get.

But - this post was about the attack on Mary. Obviously done by Tea Party zealots. Doesn't have a damn thing to do with Bomgar.

Anonymous said...

Maybe I missed something....when has there ever been a time where Joel Bomgar has been known to only be "looking out for himself???"

Where are ya'll getting your information? Joel would be a great Representative for district 58 that truly has what's best for Madison and the state of Mississippi in mind.

4:43 I guess you either don't know about his political PAC or you don't want anyone to know about it. Either way you and BUMHEAD are Tea Party which is all I need to know as a true republican. I think 4:42 just proved most of 4:01 comment. If McDaniel had BUMHEAD's money we would be calling him Senator. BUMHEAD is gonna start this crap all over again.

I'd love to see conservatives slam Mr. Mounger for not being conservative enough for their taste. Chris wants to quote Reagan. Hell, Mounger built up Reagan and told part of the GOP to screw off over Reagan.

So in Kingfish's book Mounger can do no wrong in 2014 or ever. Mounger walks on water. Keep downing that koolaid Kingfish. You're the expert.

Starting Thursday morning, there will be a conference call with most of the big wigs in Madison County republican politics to figure out what to do with Bomgar. I know cause I just got a call about it. No emails are going out. This has just gotten serious. Supposedly several state wide elected official will be on the call. They wouldn't say who. So all I can say is, if you are on that Bomgar list of supporters, you won't be on the call and you are now on someone's shit list.

All right, that's enough. This convo has gotten far away from the subject of the post. I'm reeling it back in. Stick to the subject of the post.

6:14 Insane to say that the tea party represents the majority of Republicans - McDaniel and Tyner showed us what lunatics do to try to win a race. Again, think back to what M Tyner did to the Gov race many years ago.

I Oppose The Rice Junkyard said...

Wasn't it revealed earlier on this site that Mrs. Mayfield is the sister of John Reeves? Don't forget that Reeves sits on the City of Madison Planning and Zoning Commission and chairs their meetings. Those positions are appointive and report directly to or at the behest of The Mayor of Madison.

If Reeves, who serves on this board at Mary's pleasure, is advising his sister in how to attack Mary, this would add a new wrinkle to all the conspiracy theories at play here.

I have known the Mayor probably longer than any of you making these absurd posts and I don't believe that she can be intimidated. She and I don't always agree but we are always friends and talk regularly. Madison is a nice place to live. I have been here since the mid 70's and don't intend to leave. You take care of the problems in your backyard and we'll take care of our problems.

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.
