Whitwell running for Congress

Posted on Facebook:


With the outpouring of support and the blessing from my family, I am pleased to announce that I am running for US Congress. As a native of Southaven and current Oxford resident, I am ready to run a strong campaign. My business background and legal training distinguishes my candidacy from the field. I hope you will join me in fighting to bring America back to its finest moment!

Hey Q, we've got the post from Facebook a week before Alan's death where you're imploring America to elect principled leadership. Question, with that post you lost the chance. Check and see how Mike Moore did when he ran for Congress. At least he actually lived in the district.

He saw a dying Congressman and siezed the oppurtunity.

If he's half as effective as he was on the Jackson City Council, we'll have another Greg[g] Harper. By the way, is Whitwell running as a Republican or Democrat? It's a fair question. Next!!!

Anonymous said...

Will he be an absentee Congressman just as he was an absentee city councilman?

Anonymous said...

6:25, that is hogwash.

Anonymous said...

Im sure he can stand on his "leadership" from his time on the Jackson City Council. He showed how effective he can be!

I didn't know Gucci shoes/belt combos were North Mississippi style ...... Eastover called---they want their yuppie back --- nice FB post before Alan died

He was a despicable, power-hungry opportunist here - why would anyone expect anything different there?

Hey Q, know you're proud of jackson's siemens water meter project. Thanks for leaving us with a $90M bill to pay with nothing to show for it. Wonder if you'll mention this in your campaign stump speech.

Anonymous said...

6:53. Not hogwash. His Jackson Talon partner was soliciting support and claiming all the "big money" was already committed a week before Allen's death. Was the most disgusting election tactic I have seen (except maybe that nursing home photo escapade) in Mississippi in years. But nothing is ever too much for Q and Reno - whatever it takes to get the retainer and now whatever it takes to get the DC gig.

RQW:
I'm so proud of you. You'll make a great congressman (one even this democrat will love). Hope you learned some lessons from my failed gubernatorial campaign. I just want you to know that my loss was not your fault...you did your best for me and I sincerely appreciated your help!
Love,
Bill Luckett

PS: Just tell me where to send the cash.

Jesus this and constitutional conservative that - oh and he was a business leader, now turned Into an Oxford resident with 200 years of history in the area ( where do they dig this crap up?).
Not a vulture capatilist - no, that would be too kind.
A vulture politician. Just kawing around waiting for someone to die so he can haul bootay out of Mississippi to 68 square miles of land surrounded by reality.

8:22, just what does this mean? He helped his family set up a business?

Well if the Joker leaves the Talon Group, who is going to be there to work with the Penguin??

Trent Kelly. DA in Tupelo. Two-time Iraq vet. And he's a really good guy. Definitely doesn't wear Gucci belt buckles. I hope he wipes the floor with Whitwell.

Kingfish said...

This says everything. Bluntson, Yarber, and Tillman wanted to fire Derrick Johnson on redistricting. Whitwell backstabbed them on the vote and claimed it was because they could not agree on a replacement. Um, yeah.

Anonymous said...

Whitwell was like a vulture circling around Nunnelee. Almost as soon as Nunnelee was diagnosed with cancer, Whitwell started plotting his move back to North MS so that he could run for Congress when Nunnelee died. I hope the voters in the First District see through him.

At 6:35--- awwww Chip that's really cute sticking up for your friend. Is the Super PAC fundraising going well? Xoxoxo Nancy C

Chris McDaniels' supporters don't even talk about Tate Reeves on Facebook the way you guys are running down Quinton Whitwell. I don't get Gucci belts either but questionable fashion choices shouldnt disqualify you from seeking office. And the Taggert guy doesn't even live in the District!

Anonymous said...

10:21/Chip- questionable fashion choices portray the flashy yuppie Q is. He doesn't represent my North Mississippi.

AGREED!

Hey Q, I mean 10:21, get off this blog and try and campaign. You do need to understand the error of this choice you've made. Give 20 or 30 of us a few weeks, it will become very clear.

That's okay. Thad Cochran doesn't even live in Mississippi.

To everyone in MS-01 reading here. Be forewarned. Quentin Whitwell, as a Jackson City Councilman, was a big zero. Empty suit. Bullshit artiste.

Anonymous said...

Quentin is literally almost retarded he is so ignorant.

The only thing he gets right is being shiftless and self centered.

He will lose this election and badly.

The good news is...I don't have to see him and his damn 50 shades of hairdos anymore around Jackson.

Crap Detector said...

This is 100% dung:

"Whitwell himself recently served as a City Councilman representing Northeast Jackson where he established himself as a fiscal conservative with the ability to bring about solutions in a challenging political environment."

Anonymous said...

Let's see. Whitwell told us that he was resigning from his City Council seat because he needed more time for his family. Then he said was resigning because he was soooo busy with his business interests in Jackson that the wasn't able to put enough -- specifically he said 100% at first then up'd it to 110% when asked again -- into the City Council job. Then he told us that he had to quit because his kid was going to be a tennis star in Oxford. Then he said he was going to split his time 50/50 between Oxford and his businesses in Jackson. Then he said he never got into politics with being a full-time politician in mind. Then he said he was "no lifetime politician". Then only a few weeks later at the end of November he told all the folks in Oxford that he'd get back in "when the time is right".

Whitwell will say anything. He'll fit in real well with the other RINOs in DC.

Kingfish said...

Told me the tennis star angle.

Hmmm. Sound like anyone we know?

Narcissistic Personality Disorder involves arrogant behavior, a lack of empathy for other people, and a need for admiration-all of which must be consistently evident at work and in relationships. People who are narcissistic are frequently described as cocky, self-centered, manipulative, and demanding. Narcissists may concentrate on unlikely personal outcomes (e.g., fame) and may be convinced that they deserve special treatment. Individuals with narcissistic personality disorder generally believe that the world revolves around them. This condition is characterized by a lack of ability to empathize with others and a desire to keep the focus on themselves at all times.

Gucci belts and shoes my ass...

Qball wouldn't be seen in that trash. He prefers Salvatore Ferragamo. The shoes must have buckles, right Chippus?

When's "If By Spraytan" hitting the shelves?

Quentin will be a great representative for Mississippi in DC. He has proven to work with both sides to accomplish big goals. Quentin is a modern Republican who can be a young leader and rise to help the people of our state. I fully support Quentin and think he has a great chance of securing this seat. Jackson comments on here might make some believe different but the people in the district support Quentin and are going to help him both financially and with grassroots.

10:43 if you fully support Q-dawg then why post as Anonymous? Man up and stand behind your comment with your name.

Nice try, William Faulkner wannabe.

Too bad Tom is not around for this race.

Name two solutions he brought about. I'll wait.

That goes for you too 10:43, you poor deluded gullible sap (or paid spokesman for his lying campaign.

Name 'em. Name the 'big goals' that were accomplished and the players on 'both sides'.

Modern Republican? That is funny.

Anonymous said...

I don't know anything about Mr. Whitwell (which as a metro resident may say something about his effectiveness on the Jackson City Council), but I suspect most "residents of the district" are going to perceive his abandonment of his post in Jackson as a distasteful act of opportunism.

Outspoken Leader? said...

Hey 10:43 AM, Quentin is late paying his property taxes down here in Jackson. Sure is ironic that he went ahead and paid his Lafayette County tax bill first but decided to stiff his obligation down here.

I know that Quentin couldn't get out of town fast enough to relocate up there in MS-01 -- as health issues are unpredictable -- but we sure as hell need the money here in Jackson and Hinds County.

10:43 AM will you take an action item, give the good ol' 'modern Republican' a shout and get him off his ass to accomplish this big goal of paying his property taxes?

Anonymous said...

@11:37am you'd think one of the multiple mortgage holders would have paid taxes on the sheffield house, and i am fairly certain he is living in something a little nicer than that harris grove condo in oxford.

The country folks in north Mississippi won't buy in to the Whitwell machine.

Deep ties to the 1st Congressional District but my homestead exemption is still in NE Jackson.

11:48.Hugh matter if he appears to still live in Jackson. Others running live close to voters and Jackson is a long ways from Oxford.

He looks like a lounge singer.

Sure hope that Quentin didn't register to vote in Lafayette County so he could cast a vote for Judge Bob last November.

Because as of right now, this very minute, Quentin is still registered to vote in Hinds County.

Kingfish said...

Wrong. Registered in Lafayette County on November 20.

Anonymous said...

He is still registered in Hinds too!

Anonymous said...

I would not support anyone associated with Chip Reno.

Kingfish said...

No he is not. He is registered in Lafayette.

Anonymous said...

Technically he is abiding by the law and is qualified to run for Congress. He's a smart guy and will likely run a heavy media based campaign. Many won't have any clue as to his Jackson connections, as he wont be stupid enough to talk about those.

Gotta like this!

Quentin Whitwell owns the trademark on "JUST LIKE CHRIST".

Between this and the Talon crew and his life coach helping him fart out a call to action (in November, just after he fled Jackson) he's halfway to K Street already!

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.
