Foote finishes.

106 vote margin. 2,023 to 1,917.  Here are the sheets:





Robocalls went out around 1:00 PM today.  The robocalls said Jackson was a majority-black town, the city council was black, and JPD is black.  If voters wanted anything, it needed to vote in someone who would go along with the rest of the city council on everything.  Street Committee said they were run by Greg Brand.

Dorsey couldn't run as an Obama Democrat so he went for the mud and almost pulled it off. What a phony. Good riddance......

Congrats Ashby !

@8:01, you mean good riddance til next year when Carson runs for yet another political office.

The mudslinging by Carson at the end was an embarrassment to him & his campaign

Well at least you don't have to pretend you are covering the campaign any longer Kingfish. Because you didn't.

I voted for Dorsey in primary. The mudslinging by Dorsey in the last week was so tasteless I just didn't go vote at all today. What in the world made him believe that was a good idea??

i was told today Brand was let off the leash.

LOL.

Good for him! He'll join Kenny Stokes as new members for 2015. Aaaaaand nothing will change.

I predict Kenneth Strokes will give Ashley a complete nervous breakdown by mid summer 2015. His head will explode wide open and tax bills will come spewing out...I can just see it now...

This clearly means Jackson will continue to miss all federal filing deadlines. Foote will fit in just fine.

I voted for Dorsey Carson today because I thought he was the best candidate for the job. Ashby Foote struck me as a decent person with a very limited skill set and a number of serious question marks associate with his candidacy.

As a taxpayer who plays by the rules, I was outraged by the fact that Mr. Foote is a tax deadbeat. His lack of candor regarding this important part of his resume was rather stunning. Why should I--as an honest taxpayer--elect someone with such a record to hold public office? Carson, on the other hand, was a straight shooter who wasn't afraid to let the voters know about his own agenda and the downsides associated with his opponent.

I am sorry to see that the wrong candidate won this election.

No one is more disappointed than Rudy Warnock. That includes Dorsey.

Lots of sour grapes!

@ 10:33 PM ANYTHING is better a obama lackey that can't even win a contest as a dog catcher. That loser carson dumped ton's of money ( probably not as much as he slobbered on obama) to win a job fixing water lines and filling pot holes. Straight shooter my foot. Carson reinvents himself every time some spot opens up, runs for it, dumps cash eveyhere and LOOSES. Hey dorsey! kennuf 'tokes may give you an opportunity to spend more cash. Maybe you can claim you are a black man born in white skin and fool the voters in ward two!!!

Ash won, making him the right person according to the people. I have known both. Ashby is stronger ethically. Dorsey is smart but too aggressive for his own good, sometimes past reason. Ashby's tax issue stems from the market crash in 2008-2009 when his management fees suddenly declined with the value of funds under management, but overhead continued, a situation he did not create but took time to adjust to. He will be make a very knowledgeable councilman.

Maybe with that steady paycheck Ashby can finally afford to pay his taxes.

Driving the length of Ridgewood Rd yestersay afternoon--at virtually every intersection there was a Carson sign being held by an African-American.

Was Carson the turkey riding around in the convertible Saturday with the fur coat and campaign sign? If so, glad he lost, on that fact alone.

Anonymous said...

Does anyone know the wording used in the robocall and/or who paid for it ?

Anonymous said...

In Northeast Jackson, that robocall was the perfect thing to push Ashby over the top. You think Carson ran it?

Anonymous said...

So let me get this right:
A guy runs on a platform of being a leader in fiscal responsibility, and when his opponent calls him out for actually being exactly the opposite, that's "slinging mud"?

Dorsey didn't hide behind the GOP and PACs with photoshopped, misleading fliers.

He called a spade a spade.

Republicans reverted to fear mongering once again.
Congrats on being consistent!

More discussion of Foote's tax liens in this thread than Kingfish allowed in the entire election. Course Fish is still butt hurt that his pally Amile couldn't con enough voters to put him into the runoff.

What a joke. Carson tried every way possible to hide the fact that he is a loyal Democrat, until he knew he needed more Demo's to vote. Then he pandered to every low info voter he could find. Even hauled out the negative adds at the end. But, of course, the real kiss of death for Caron was his endorsement by William Winter.

Anonymous said...

Gee,the Dems are struggling to criticize the choice of the voters here since they can't just yell "racism" as they usually do.

Both candidates had faults but over 50% of voters felt Foote's failings were less than his opponent. Dems can't get around that Foote's problems were with the IRS, the most hated government agency of all (just wait until the IRS starts confiscating tax refunds from those who didn't buy a policy under Obamacare in four months).

Anonymous said...

Amusingly predictable how Kingfish is suddenly interested in robocalls and race politics but was deathly quiet while the race baitin' vote buyin' drunk drivin' Pete Perry was pulling off the same.

I live in Ward 6, and Monday rec. 3 calls from Council-man Stamps...pushing democrat Carson, wish I could HAVE VOTED FOR Mr. Foote.

His presence there should be interesting !!!

Produce a recording of the robocall Kingfish.

Anonymous said...

10:45 - you continue with the same dribble with your obsession over Perry. Just like the rest of your ilk, you ignore the truth and facts. Show one - just one - case of Perry buying votes. Or Perry being involved in robocalls. Or Perry doing any 'racebaiting'.

Your boy McD lost - and thank the good Lord that he did. Either put up or shut up. And when you have to shut up, take your sorry behind and get back in the hole you lived in prior to this spring.

Anonymous said...

1:34 I agree with you. Pete manages to make the McD acolytes go crazy. Good for him. They deserve it.

8:42 - "photoshopped misleading fliers"? Really?

I saw a mail piece by the Hinds Republicans, but didn't see a flyer.

Yes - clearly photoshopped. Looked to me to be clear that it was a photoshop, not an actual picture.

Misleading? What? Truthful facts aren't misleading. True, Carson didn't want this story told in the conservative community in NE Jackson.

Now, he's complaining that 'national politics' was brought into a local race by the Republicans. Looks to me like his typical pot/kettle crap.

Carson brought the national politics into the campaign - told conservatives that he was a "Reagan conservative" while touting his Obama and liberal Democrat background to the Democrats in the ward.

He - as they say in the courtroom - opened the door to what he is now complaining about being 'national politics'. Nothing misleading about telling his background and thought process to "all" the voters in the Ward.

Pete Perry is as slimy as they come. It is no surprise he and his apologists hide here behind KF's skirt.

1:34 & 1:58
I'm sure you people are SOOO proud of Cochran (and Wicker) for voting FOR the CRomnibus bill. Yay! Full funding for all that our Democrat President wanted! Yay! Illegal aliens! Yay! Obamacare! Yay! Watch the Republicans bend over and take it from the Democrats! Cochran (and Wicker) may have won the battle, but, WE lost the war. Pat yourselves on the back, a-holes.

Anonymous said...

3:07 PM you forgot the additional pork Wicker wants to spend on the already mothballed NASA project in south Mississippi.

Anonymous said...

heck, I liked the three robocall's that I received from someone claiming to be William Winter pandering for dorsey votes sounding a lot like Col. Sanders on the plantation.

Anonymous said...

3:07 PM I guess you can't read. Here's the perfect example of the Tea Party, the guy who benefitted from it, is a union guy, and who rushed for more "GubMint" money to beat the other guys to it.


"Forshee is a tea party supporter, somebody who hates for government money to be misspent. And here, he sees, it was misspent on him. After his interview at Hooters, he called a reporter back to be sure he had it right.

“They’re just saying they spent $350 million for no reason?” he asked.

Yes, he was told.

“Well,” he said. “Nice.” (He took the job at the new test stand anyway, to be sure the work stayed with his union local: “If we don’t do this work, then they’re going to give it to Local 60 out of New Orleans.”)

Still laughing at the upset Tea Party ilk on Dec. 18th. Lord, I'd hate to be around you people. I cannot imagine how you make it through your daily lives. Begrudgingly, I'd imagine.

Regarding a Dorkey Carson robocall -who was the 'Conservative Republican, Charles __' that said the Carson photos with Obama were photoshopped? They certainly were not.

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.
