Girl is engaged to band member. Band member forgets fiance is the one who does all the laundry. Mr. Darwin award candidate lets groupie change her clothes and leave them in his laundry when she makes a clandestine visit to his home. Needless to say, this was posted on Facebook:
Gettysburg & Vicksburg. True the Vote & Chris McDaniel. Both suffered tremendous defeats today. True the Vote lost in federal court today as Judge Nancy Atlas ruled that the National Voter Registration Act did not cover poll books while Chris McDaniel saw his election challenge thrown out because his legal team couldn't read a calendar. True the Vote is a public interest organization that seeks to defend "election integrity". True the Vote filed suit in federal court seeking access to unredacted copies of the poll books, absentee ballots, and other materials used in the recent Mississippi Senate elections.
West Point beating victim Ralph Weems is still in a coma but has made some progress. Mr. Weems is off the ventilator and is no longer receiving sedation medications. He has opened his eyes a few times but is not responsive. The limbs have moved a few times but it is not known if the actions are voluntary or involuntary. Doctors induced a coma after emergency brain surgery to assist in his recovery. A GofundMe account has been established to help pay Mr. Weems' medical bills. The Associated Press reported:

The Oktibbeha County Circuit Clerk filed a motion to quash a subpoena (posted below) in McDaniel v. Cochran in Jones County Circuit Court. The McDanied campaign faxed a subpoena for records to the circuit clerk. Needless to say, that did not go over too well as it violated some rules of civil procedure. Rules of service of process, ten days..... need we continue?

Jackson City Council President Dekeither Stamps tabled discussion of Mayor Tony Yarber's two nominees for the Jackson Public School District Board of Trustees at the regular meeting of the council yesterday. Mr. Stamps justified his action by stating "we need to talk to them." Mr. Stamps refused to set a date for a confirmation hearing when asked to do so by the Mayor. The Mayor nominated CMMC executive Richard Lind and Insurance professional Camille Simms to the school board.

Bradley Barnes told Jackson Jambalaya he thinks the group of men who beat his brother-in-law and another man Saturday Night at a Huddle House in West Point should be prosecuted for attempted murder as well as a hate crime.
It's back. The Senate race has turned everyone off, chains of a sort for the readers who are forced to become political Marleys, wondering when the torment will end. The Whole Foods jokes are stale, crime is well, crime. Time to bring back the hottest reporter poll. It disappeared for awhile because well, to be honest, the talent pool in this town dropped for a couple of years. However, that has changed. Vote early, vote often. All images were culled from their employer's websites, Google images, and public Facebook pages. Oh, and be nice in the comments. That includes Johnny Weir.

Our favorite little Rad-fem (radical feminist for those of you locked in a courthouse and cut off from civilization) had another meltdown on her blog. If you haven't read her posts, here is a primer, she thinks ALL sex between a man and a woman is rape, wonders why she has no friends, and thinks the fact that people read her blogs are "a threat". This post is gold. She literally wants to exterminate all men, cull them, or force them to commit suicide:

WLBT reported on more controversy at the Sulphur Springs project near Camden:
It looks like Mississippi is one of the cheapest places to live in the country. We don't have Broadway, the schools sort of suck compared to the rest of the country, can't even find freshly-baked baguettes in the afternoon but it is cheap to live here. The Tax Foundation published this chart:

We rarely use the word "douchebag" on this site but that term applies to this particular reporter. Now, we also never use Alex Jones material on this website as well but the video in this case speaks for itself. Watch 1:00 of the video. The Al-Jazeera reporter walks into the tear gas on purpose than starts whining about being gassed.

Since we lost Broadway thanks to Chokwe & Priester, JJ is bringing a little Broadway to you this morning. Here is the 25th anniversary performance of Phantom of the Opera at Royal Albert Hall. Sets are visually stunning. The vocal performances are arguably better than the original ones by Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman. It is available on Netflix but here is a copy found on Youtube. Hint: Watch it on a big-screen tv if you can. The show will appear at the Saenger Theatre in New Orleans in November.

Pickering's office recovered more than $1.5 million in fiscal year 2014. Incidents occurred in 50 of Mississippi's 82 counties.

State Senator Chris McDaniel filed a petition for an emergency hearing and injunctive relief against Thad Cochran in Jones County Circuit Court today. The Chris McDaniel campaign issued this press release:
Rankin County Chancellors Dan Fairly and John Grant threw out a gay marriage registration that was filed yesterday at the Chancery Clerk's office. Jennifer Kelly and Anna Guillot filed a registration for a New York marriage license (see p.4 in the documents posted below.). The court order states:
The Jackson Free Press managed to score a scoop when it reported that Roy Nicholson made a little prayer promoting violence at a Rankin County function for blogger Charles Johnson. Yup, this is the same Roy Nicholson who wanted to create an un-American activities committee in the legislature. The JFP reported:

Here is some political porn for the junkies out there. This is the transcript for the True the Vote hearing held in federal court on July 24. Catherine Engelbrecht's testimony begins on page 24. It's worth reading. It gets more interesting when MSGOP lawyer Mike Wallace begins his cross-examination at page 76 (see pages 85 and 86 as well.). Hinds County attorney Pieter Teiwussen's cross beings at page 94 (read as well) and Rankin County attorney Craig Slay begins his cross on page 97. Enjoy.

The Chris McDaniel campaign submitted an affidavit of improper or irregular votes in Madison County to the Mississippi Republican Party and Thad Cochran campaign today. The McDaniel campaign said last week that all Republican votes in Madison County from the June 24 runoff election should be rejected. The McDaniel campaign argued in its election challenge:
The Hinds County School District settled a lawsuit over a Terry High School football coach's alleged sexual affair with an underage student. U.S. Magistrate John Roper approved the confidential settlement. The complaint charged assistant football coach Damein Anderson had sex with the female student at school and at motel rooms in the Jackson area. Earlier post on civil lawsuit. The plaintiff also claims Mr. Anderson sent sexually explicit messages and nude pictures to the student's cellphone. JJ reported in November:

A nice shout-out goes to Unclaimed Freight in Pearl. We've all seen the going out of business, buy & sell gold, pizza special and other signs that populate the right of ways. Well, Unclaimed Freight decided to really trash Lakeland Drive this morning. They stuck around 50 signs from St. Dominics to the Pearl River. Many were only a few feet apart from each other. McDonald's, Cups, Penns, none were spared. Nothing like driving down Lakeland and seeing a bunch of bright yellow trashy signs. There was something that was really funny:

It should be Lake out in the middle of nowhere but it doesn't roll of the tongue as easily. The Madison County Journal reported Madison County ran into a little problem with the Sulpher Springs lake project. While they were spending all kinds of money on engineers and other fees, it seems the site has a sandy bottom:

The Board of Trustees for the Jackson Municipal Airport Authority voted in April to provide cellphones and Ipads to all board members. The board voted for the perk even though JMAA was forced to raise landing fees in March and revenues lag 2% behind budgeted projections. Previous boards did not provide this benefit to board members. The board passed the resolution at the end of the April meeting:

State Senator Melanie Sojourner (R-House of Seale) finally filed her request for a waiver with the Secretary of State last Friday. Secretary of State Elbert Hosemann fined her $500 in July for her failure to turn in her annual campaign finance report that was due at the end of January. Ms. Soujourner is the only legislator who has not submitted the annual report in 2014.There is one slight distinction, however, that must be made about the waiver request.
The velvet glove came off the iron fist as the Mississippi Republican Party asked U.S. District Judge Nancy Atlas (Ret.) to impose sanctions against True the Vote. The lawyer porn is posted below.

State Senator Chris McDaniel is expected to announce at a 2:30 PM press conference today that he is filing a formal election challenge over the June 24 Republican Senate run-off election. Watch the press conference live on WLBT's website. Mr. McDaniel must first file a challenge with the Executive Committee of the Mississippi Republican Party. He can file a challenge in the Hinds County after he exhausts his appeals with the Republican Party.
2:45: State Senator McDaniel and attorney Mitch Tyner just stepped up to the podium.
2:57: yes, Mr. Tyner did say Mr. McDaniel won by 25,000 votes.
Remember all of those incident reports filed by True the Vote last week? Copiah County asked Judge Nancy Atlas to throw them all out of court. True the Vote submitted 120 pages of incident reports completed by "volunteers". These "incident reports" include a statement by two volunteers that they could not find the courthouse in Jefferson County as it had a different address than the one listed on the county website.

Earlier post with copy of request for injunction
A sea of black and gray swept upon the banks of Court Street last Thursday. It wasn't a convention of Oakland Raiders groupies, but lawyers, a whole mob of lawyers, dedicated to slugging it out over True the Vote's Lawsuit against Secretary of State (SOS) Delbert Hosemann, the Republican Party of Mississippi (MSGOP), and several counties. The Texas non-profit public interest group sought a preliminary injunction against the defendants over the issue of the redaction of birth dates from the poll books used in the Republican Senate primary and runoff elections last month. The court did not rule on the preliminary injunction but requested briefs in the next two to three weeks.
Former Marine Corps Commandant James Conway had a few things to say about the Israel-Hamas conflict in the Wall Street Journal last week:

A Marion County resident filed suit a year ago against Logan's Roadhouse in U.S. District Court after he was allegedly assaulted and choked by a patron in the Hattiesburg restaurant. He claims several individuals harassed him and his two friends, called him n*****r, and then commenced the physical attack. He states he asked the manager several times to stop the harassment but the manager told him to move to another table. The police eventually arrived and arrested the alleged assailant.

Ole Miss issued the following press release:
Earlier post containing rather entertaining facts of case and video.
The Mississippi Supreme Court took no action on two contempt of court motions filed against Vicksburg attorney Michael Winfield by Vicksburg Healthcare. The court held a hearing on July 24 to decide whether to hold Mr. Winfield in contempt after he failed to make payments as ordered by the court on April 30. The court ordered the wayward attorney to pay $500 in sanction monthly installments of $100 and attorney's fees to Vicksburgh Healthcare in monthly installments as well. Mr. Winfield paid the sanctions and fees in full a few days before this hearing- after Vicksburg filed its motions for contempt. Mr. Winfield drew the sanctions and a serious ass-chewing from the court when he failed to appear at a show cause hearing on April 30. Mr. Winfield appeared at the hearing forty-five minutes late- after the court ordered the clerk to contact Mr. Winfield as the justices waited. A full court presided over the July 24 hearing. Mr. Winfield is the brother of jailed Vicksburg Mayor Paul Winfield.
Last call for fund-raising for Jackson Jambalaya. Many thanks to those who have supported the website this year. Thank you very much for your support of Jackson Jambalaya
and for reading this blog over the years. Who would have thought a
website that started as a little ole blog back in 2007 would become a
leading news and commentary website in Mississippi seven years later.
Jackson Jambalaya has come a
long way and has been fortunate to have you as readers. JJ has broken
many stories and exposed public corruption ignored by the mainstream
media. It's been a pretty good ride and a pleasure getting to know many

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.
Note: Security provided by INS.
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. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
