Gulf Coast GOP FOOD FIGHT!!!

It looks like the Harrison County Republican Party didn't like all the Mississippi Republican Party Grand Poobahs who decided to endorse one candidate in Tuesday's Mayoral election. 

The Harrison County Republican Executive Committee is protesting the state party's intervention in the Biloxi mayor's race.

Chairman Frank Genzer of Biloxi said local Republicans are infuriated by a letter sent by state Chairman Joe Nosef that questioned the Republican credentials of FoFo Gilich, a candidate local Republicans "absolutely"

consider a Republican. Gilich had been a Democrat, even serving briefly as local leader, but said he switched to the GOP several years ago. The Harrison County Republican Club also accepts Gilich as a member of the party. He'll be its guest speaker at the 11:30 a.m. Wednesday meeting at the Great Southern Club in downtown Gulfport....
Genzer said the local Republicans had discussed the issue and decided it would be improper to endorse either candidate because both were Republicans.

Now the Harrison County Republicans will be sending the state party a letter "asking for clarification of why they did what they did."

He said it's standard protocol for the state party to contact the local party before taking any action, such as an endorsement.

"It infuriated us that they decided which one was the better Republican," he said. "You don't do that."
It wasn't the only letter from Nosef that figured in the campaign. The week after the first one arrived, Gilich received a letter from Nosef that begins, "As a direct result of your loyal support of the Mississippi Republican Party, our candidates returned to Washington in January."

Nosef hasn't responded to an email request to explain the letters.

About that letter. Here it is:

This is easy. Swetman was the candidate the RINOs own.

i'm expecting barbour-world to appear on the scene and begin the GOTV campaign among democrats to help the poo-bahs' cnadidate and by smearing the local favorite.

mississippi repub politics has become an epic cluster-**** and that really sucks! i don't see much difference between the 2 parties at the top anymore, other than maybe the rhetoric.

It's all happened on Joe Hussein Nosef's watch. May be time for him to step down.

MSGOP establishment don't give a damn who they alienate nor who they piss off. Their day of reckoning approaches.

It seemed pretty evident to me and that was that Swetman carried only one box - by TWO votes. If that isn't enough for Phil Bryant and Noseff to understand, I don't know what is! The folks in Biloxi are great people, but they don't like to be told who to vote for by Bryant and party! Honestly, I think Phil may have been sniffing fumes from all the lawnmowers!

Phil and Nosef's candidate got trounced! How'd Phil's yes boys explain this as a positive development to him?

Joe NOSEf, Brandon Payne(Pain) and JosH GregORy just got exposed. Their mickey mouse bulls**t tricks have been used one too many times. They played Phil and Tate like a fiddle. Pack your bags boys the ride is over in Mississippi.

Whole lotta truth @ 2:47 PM.

Whole lotta truth @ 2:47 AND 1:53. These moves - Gov Phil and Chairman Nosef weren't moves from 'the party' although Joe's was done in the party's name, they were done at the instruction of the Governor's puppet master, Josh Gregory. And of course Joe is going to go wherever he is told to go by the Governor, or in his stead, the shadow governor, Josh Gregory.

Anonymous said...

I find it strange that Joe would write such a poorly formatted letter. I hope our MS Rep Party has letter head, and would use a date at the heading along with proper spacing to begin the letter. Are we sure this isn't some Bennie T rip off tactics by south MS Repub's?

Frank Genzer could have cared less until Sweatman lost.

He is on the Airport Commission, what do you think he is worried about?

The Junction Boys up there in Hinds have bigger things to worry about than some empty public protest letter.

Anonymous said...

It is hard to believe that the chairman of the state party would write a letter that looks so shoddy. Is this a setup? If he really wrote that he needs to be gone Monday for several reasons.

Mr. Genzer is a good man. He and some of other mature successful business people involved in the GOP should shake things up from within because the party is being shaken down by people like Payne, Gregory and Cloyd in a Scott Walker fashion. Here is how it works. They find a Republican candidate for office, sign on as campaign managers and shake him down for a percentage of money that is raised from his supporters. If he gets elected they then become CONsultants and shake down people that want access to the elected official for various reasons. You wonder how much they beat out of Swetman to get the letter sent out to the faithful about Gilich being a Demoncrat? I see one amount of $7500. in Swetman's reporting as paid to Frontier Strategies Gulf Coast. Was that for the letter or was that the payment for the flipped flopped Govs endorsement? They are destroying the GOP in the name of Phil Bryant. He needs to stop being their puppet, grow some coconuts and quit allowing them to sell him like a whore around the state. He is responsible for the damage being done because he has allowed this monster to exist. Hey Tater, how did you get so obviously played in this matter by Josh? Did he promise free use of De Plane, De Plane for a Destin weekend? Sickening to say the least.

@5:51 PM you could be easily describing Austin Barbour.

Don't forget Lenny Swetman.

He is referred to as Lenny Swetman in Mississippi Mud, but the full name on his 1992 drug conviction is Leonard Francis Swetman (he was convicted with Kirksey Nix and Mike Gillich).

"HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) - Two prison inmates and a Biloxi man have been convicted of conspiring to bring marijuana from Oklahoma to the Mississippi coast.

Jurors found Mike Gillich Jr., Kirksey McCord Nix Jr. and Leonard Francis Swetman guilty on Friday.

Prosecutors said Nix, a former Oklahoman, directed and bankrolled
marijuana import plans from his Louisiana prison cell.

Fellow inmate Gillich was the paymaster and Swetman helped store
it until delivery, prosecutors

Witnesses testified that Swetman kept 40 pounds of marijuana from Oklahoma at his house in late 1986 to at least April 1987."

I really dont think Sweatman made the payments that got the Governor, Lt. Gov., MS. Republican Chairman and Palazzo to step up.

You think they would do this for 7,500?

That purchase was made by someone that had a lot at stake on the mayors race. You want the answer, go look at Mr. Sweatman's contributor leader board.

Greogory, Cloyd and Walker are just fronts for something bigger and will be the first to go under the bus, when things go south.

The $7500 is Gregory & Cloyd getting to stand around on their cell phones and look busy.

The Bryant, Tate, Palazzo, Nosoff package is going to have cost 7500 with two 00 added to that number and then some.

Let's not forget the good ole city attorney who had the big fund raiser for the supervisor in August. Way before anyone knew the current mayor was going to resign. Cloyd, Swetman, Miller, Walker and Bryant are all cut from the same cloth. Even if FoFo were a Democrat he would have won. People on the coast were voting against the local frat boys and FoFo benefited. Bryant and Reeves made a huge mistake and Bryant says he is not sorry he did it. Said "friends take care of friends"

Anonymous said...

That fund raiser had nothing to do with campaign funds and everything to do with cleaning the deck of an indiscreet loan.

Most unfortunate about the paper trail.....

Anonymous said...

10:22 is correct about the indiscreet loan. Even more intriguing is the fact that this loan originated at the Ms.Development Authority. Swetman was not eligible because his holding of an elected public office but somehow this loan was approved and disbursed to he and his wife anyway. Just a few days after the fun raiser was held at the home of the Biloxi attorney that has billed more than a $1,000, the city per year the loan was paid and a cancellation release was recorded in the records of Harrison County. Who paid this off with money that came from where? How does an elected official arrange this type of loan that he is not supposed to get? All good questions in search of answers. Maybe the investigation looking into this is already underway. I feel certain this will make some Swet man.

Anonymous said...

The first thing that struck me , as it did others, is that the letter doesn't meet the criteria for being a letter at all!

If he wrote it, how in the world did he get to be chairman of anything?

I could write a proper letter in elementary school!

Ding Ding Din 9:02 and 10:22 are winners. Interesting that this is not the only loan that begs for scrutiny. There are several other loans taken out by Sweatman Sr. All using property as collateral, all defaulted on. It is believed those loans were used to satisfy the victims, Sr. broadsided in an accident a few years ago. Jr. made sure Sr. was not at the scene when the police arrived (that in itself is criminal). What became of the property used as collateral for those loans after it was sold at auction?

If Joe "Buckethead" Nosef, Josh "can I wear my grey suit" Gregory, Joe " where can I get a haircut" Cloyd and Brandon "where's the buffet" Payne are the Brain trust for our Gov. and Lt Gov. then this state is in a world of freaking hurt. They no doubt concocted this "not so genuis plan" and forgot that they are all the only ones that consider themself genuis. The word demise comes to mind in regards to their future.

A Blind Mule could have gotten Phil elected and this is Frontier's claim to fame.

The arrogonce of Josh will again bite hin in his rear.

He doesn't return phone calls from any of the little people!

Look for Phil to partner up with Charles Porter after he leaves office. Compared to Josh & company Porter really looks good!

Gregory Cloyd & Co. have attracted the kind of attention no one should want.

The wretch, concentrated all in self
Living, shall forfeit fair renown
And, doubly dying, shall go down
To the vile dust, from whence he sprung
Unwept, unhonoured, and unsung.

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!!!
