Democrat dust-up.

Here is the complete video of today's little scrum between  Sam Begley and Jim Evans over the big question: Is Representative Jim Evans a resident of the district he represents?




I could provide a write-up but I'm going to pull a George Martin and say its the weekend and I'll write the actual post if I actually feel like it.

Begley is right but Evans will win this one. SAD!

Regardless of the outcome, Sam Begley has been right and in good faith to raise the issue, esp where it appears homestead was abandoned on Ash Street.

Mr. Begley is a damn fine individual. I don't give a shit about his politics. He demonstrates the finer qualities of a Statesman.

Sam is good attorney. He's smart. I don't agree with his politics but I respect his ability.

I hope Sam is proud of all the time he has (most likely pro bono) represented this bunch of clowns in election challenges. Now he might understand how the folks on the "outside" of the innercircle felt when having to make a case to this 'tribunal' of committee members.

At least the Dem committee didn't break out into a fist fight this time. Guess overall boy wasn't present to stir up the members.

The Supreme Court says whaaaa???

Good to know. I now live in ( insert fraudulent location here). Now, come and disprove that with your suspicion in good faith with evidence that I live in ( blank).

Was that a UFO hovering in the doorway behind everyone or was that a hat? Inquiring minds want to know!

Why am I watching a 33 minute video at 4:00 a.m.?

Why am I watching a boring, poor quality video at 4:00 a.m.?

And why does this appear to be some sort of confrontational assault happening in somebody's office. Reminds me of something you see on Fox where a reporter shows up with a crowd and a mic. Is this a forum of some sort, a democrat party meeting? Or what?

Residence, in this sort of argument, is not established by homestead exemption documents. I can have homestead exemption on a property that I own in Laurel but might not have actually lived there in some time. I might now live in a house I own or rent or camp out in that's in Ridgeland. I can't file homestead on the latter three examples. But I do not live in Laurel.

Homestead rules, then, are further complicated by whether the house in Laurel is vacant or may be rented or may have a relative of mine staying there.

Homestead is filed more for tax purposes than for establishing legal residence.

I'm no attorney and this is my opinion having walked the labyrinth of homestead several times lately.

Why would the Evans abandon homestead on Ash Street if they actually lived there?

I believe Sam Begley is correct on this one. From a woman's point of view, the expensive clothes that both of the Evans' wear would not fit into the closets of an old home nor would they be safe on Ash St. They would not be safe from mildew, from moth, or from thief. The cars they drive would not be safe either. Are there other siblings who also live with aging mother or only the Evans? Do the Evans have dedicated bedrooms and closets at the NE Jackson home? From what I have always heard, the Evans only keep that house so Jim Evans can have a job.

Irrelevant 9:21. They don't live there, they know it, they are low class liars and are attempting to parse the law to their benefit. They are classless liars, bashing the evil white man, yet moving to the security white neighborhoods offer. The very idea that they claim to live in that dump on Ash Street is laughable.

Most people do get older over the years. Asinine statement by Mrs. Evans. I don't think I would use her services.

If that was in fact Judge Stokes in the video, that is a major problem for her. Judges are required to be non-partisan. She cannot be at any meeting of a political party.

Good luck with that!

That's a man. But thanks for axing 2:21.

Yeah when I worked for the city, we all knew Sarah Evans was a racists b word.

The lady in the hat is Addie Green, not Judge Stokes. They do not even look alike!!

Begley could beat Evans at the polls. Why is it automatic that Evans will win? Even if Evans wins the right to have a phoney residence, Begley could still prevail at the polls. Fondren and Belhaven and the honest people of Midtown could decide they want intelligent representation.

This is at the State Democratic Party office. This is the Elections Subcommittee of the State Democratic Committee, which will report to the full committee before the vote to certify the ballot.

There are different definitions and uses of residence for different purposes.
The homestead exemption form is a sworn statement that this is where I did reside on Jan. 1. You can't file homestead on a property and live somewhere else even if you consider the homestead property as your permanent home.

The state Supreme Court has ruled that where you file homestead exemption is where you should be registered to vote but that is based on the sworn statement that it is where you reside.

For college students, military, etc. who live elsewhere temporarily, you can register to vote at your temporary actual residence or you can stay registered at the place you consider your permanent residence, as long as you don't file for homestead exemption at the temporary place.

In this case, I doubt the party will disqualify Evans, but Begley has raised it as a legitimate political issue. If Evans wins the primary and is certified as the nominee, Begley could then take it to the State Election Committee (Gov, AG, SecState) to rule that Evans is not eligible for the general election ballot. Then there also is court.

This is one of those "definition of is, is" things. The purpose of the residency requirement is to determine where you live. The liars live in Rolling Meadows. You know it, I know it, the Democrat Patry knows it, but most importantly, the LIARS know it. They do not LIVE on Ash Street. They are trashy liars, hiding out in NEJ.

Sam Begley's behavior is just another example to prove that racism is still alive and well in the state of Mississippi. Also, look at other examples from this post. The person who states that because Ms. Evans dresses well that she cannot live on Ash St. or because of their cars they can't live there. This is insane. There are many people in the district that have nice things, so the logic behind that argument is faulty. Also, if we are going to start calling people liars, let's take a look at where a lot of the politicians live. Let's also look at the black candidates that the white people put up so that they can control them like puppets. Let's look at the real elephant in the room behind this entire issue which is RACISM.

Anonymous said...

5:36, You may be right. The Black Caucus is mad as hell that a white man would dare to run for a black seat.

The post about clothes said the closets on Ash St. would not HOLD the clothes, not that people on Ash St. can't afford the clothes.

Why would you think that some black people are "puppets"? I find that insulting and racist. Who are you referring to?

Anonymous said...

Can Sam Begley win in the district Representative Evans represents which is 70% black?

Anonymous said...

I don't use puppets in a racist manner. Any candidates that do the bidding of their donors exclusively are puppets too. In several of the past elections (the last 2 mayoral elections included, there have been black candidates strongly endorsed "silently" through anonymous donations by whites with the understanding that there will be favors to be repaid or influence to the donors' benefit if elected. The fact that candidates have an allegiance to donors is just part of politics, and if anyone thinks otherwise, they are sadly mistaken. Therefore, if a black candidate is strongly backed by the "anonymous white donors" with an alternate agenda and motive, where do you think his or her allegiance will lie? The conversation typically goes like this... You need money to campaign if you want a chance to be elected. We'll help get you elected because we have the financial resources, but you'll have to agree to support our agenda.

Anonymous said...

That's right 5:36. Because the Evans are proven liars, it's about race. They. are. liars. Period. Is that racist??. Then I'll be a racist again. The. Evans. Are. LIARS.

Anonymous said...

6:57, Probably not which is sad. What has the Incumbent done to make their life better? How has the Incumbent helped the City of Jackson? Are his decisions on education helping or hurting his constituency? Guess many just vote out of habit or because of skin color. Sad indeed.

Anonymous said...

8:33 is spot on. We're they white Republicans Al and Jesse would be all over it. They. ARE. Liars.

Sam is a far more dangerous POS than Evans. Evans is ignorant. Sam is quite bright and will use his intelligence for evil, power trip games.

Hopefully Sam loses and is outcast from the D party such that he eventually moves to another state to try to poison their system of governanace.

Anonymous said...

Evans is the pure definition of POS. Liar, stubborn, stupid, pure ignunt. As a Republican, I am proud of Begley for standing up to this willy nilly, ineffective, lying bully.

34 is it?? Biggest LIAR in Ms. History pulls the wool over ther other Democrats eyes on the "tribunal" and we get crickets from you enlightened JJ readers. Shame shame shame.

Get Real. We all have known for years that Jim Evans does not live in the district. People have looked the other way to avoid being called a racist. Jim has been given a pass. If Jim wants to run for the seat, let him purchase and LIVE in a residence in the district. Not so hard. why would he not? and as long as we are talking about this, what about the Hinds County District Attorney living in Rankin county. He does not live with his mama in jackson. everyone knows it. It isn't difficult if the blacks want to follow the law... OH WAIT. my bad

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.
