Gibbert to seek re-election

Secretary of State Egbert Hosemann issued the following press release:

Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann announces Re-Election Plans

Jackson, Miss.-Secrtary of State Delbert Hosemann filed qualifying papers to seek re-election as Secretary of State in 2015 at the Mississippi Republican Party Headquarters today. 

"Lynn and I are humbled by the encouragement of so many Mississippians," says Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann.  "When the citizens of this Great State hired me, I was determined to make Mississippi a better place for my grandchildren.   From day one, I have worked to fund education for our children, encourage economic development and create jobs by implementing the best business laws in the country, protect and preserve our natural resources, and ethically manage our elections."

On January 30, 2015, Secretary Hosemann reported approximately $1,007,172 cash on hand.

"I've never been a career politician, and my decisions are not politically motivated.  I have a proven record for doing what is I believe is right for Mississippians," says Secretary Hosemann.  "There is still work to be done as Secretary of State, and I hope the citizens of Mississippi will allow me to complete the work we have started in the next four years."

Since taking office, Secretary Hosemann has:
  • Requested a decrease in his budget this year of $845,000.
  • Implemented a constitutional Voter ID requirement in our State.  Mississippi was the only State in recent years to avoid a federal lawsuit when implementing this constitutional requirement, saving millions of tax dollars in potential legal fees.
  • Proposed some of the most innovative and business friendly business law reforms in the nation to encourage businesses to open their doors or expand in Mississippi, creating countless jobs.
  • Encouraged small business growth by cutting business filing fees and eliminating unnecessary and often burdensome paper filings.
  • Increased the amount generated from public lands to the highest amount recorded in 2015--$89,342,384.  These funds go directly to the education of our schoolchildren.  
Secretary Hosemann will be seeking a third consecutive term in 2015.

I wish he'd quit running off spam emails to business owners crowing about his achievements. Ironic how opting out still puts you on the recipient list.

I was watching something on PBS the other night and there was a promo for a cooking show he was doing the other night.

Oh grande! Now we get to see him every day for another several years in the margins of JJ and on every link to this site we send somebody else. Sitting cross legged like Ichabod Crane in his Jos A. Bank finery and freshly polished funeral shoes. Interesting that he has millions for advertising.

1st Anonymous, Sounds like an email technical issue if you opted out and still receive the "spam". I would call your email provider's Technical support Hotline.

How does a state employee manage to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on advertising? Or should I be asking Gallo this question?

I hope Dilbert doesn't do the Mike Chaney "squeeze those you regulate" fundraising emails.

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.
