Espy defending the BOS and Rudy Warnock. Remember, Espy got in trouble in Washington for accepting favors, lavish trips etc. from companies he was charged in regulating.

Espy was found not guilt of all charges. It was a witch hunt.

Mary has been bought and paid for to go after Stacy. Start asking who is funding her attacks?

I never understood how Espy was found "not guilty" but the people who bribed him were indeed found guilty.

From the USDA.. said...

2:27, Espy was found 'not guilty' in a very political trial. Check out venue and WH influence. It was far from a witch hunt. Tyson was paying for all kinds of goodies, and also for his friend girl.

But his job here is to defend the BOS and he is doing a good job of it. Not his job to defend Rudy, except that's what a majority of the BOS requires for him to keep his position.

I don't know that Mary has been bought and paid for - just would agree that she is on an agenda of her own crazy mindset. Nothing new there for her - its hard to figure who she dislikes the most, Stacy or Rudy.

From your link:
"Two From Tyson Convicted in Espy Probe
June 27, 1998
A Tyson Foods Inc. executive was convicted of making illegal gifts to then-agriculture secretary Mike Espy in 1993 and the company's chief Washington lobbyist was found guilty of lying to the FBI and other investigators about the favors."

How is Espy "not guilty" and the Tyson people who gave him illegal gifts were guilty?

It was nothing but a witch hunt.

All the Tyson charges never reached the jury.

The Judge threw them out.

All the girlfriend stuff never reached the jury.

Now, why were they convicted and Mr. Espy was not convicted of anything?

- the judge drew from the evidence presented that they (Tyson Foods) intended to give Mr. Espy a gift (scholarship for a girlfriend) but Mr. Espy knew nothing about it.

Tyson staff under oath said there was absolutely no contact with Mr. Espy.

The girlfriend (who wasn't called by prosecutor) was prepared to say that she never told Mr. Espy anything.

None of the charges against Mr. Espy were for official misconduct or giving favors to any companies that he regulated. None.

Mr. Espy was a reformer and he really probably cost Tyson Foods a lot of money in the end.

Sun Diamond was also convicted in the "political venue".

They appealed to DC Circuit and then the Sup Court took the case-

The Sup Court judges overturned the conviction with J. Scalia writing for 9-0 court.

Now focus children:

Focus on the woman who is screaming for what appears to be no reason at all!

Who is paying her? Go ask people. Get to the bottom.

Who benefits from Pickering having an opponent?

Think people, think!

2:27, Rudy in a landslide. There's not even anyone in second place.

On Count One Of The Indictment... said...

Espy was guilty as sin; he knew it, the president who forced him to resign knew it, the judge knew it and the jury knew it.

Smaltz was offering no apologies, saying his office had won 15 other convictions and generated $11 million in fines. He said Espy's indictment last year on charges that he illegally took $35,000 in gifts sent a strong public message, adding, "The actual indictment of a public official may in fact be as great a deterrent as a conviction of that official."

"Public service is a public trust," Smaltz said. "Officials must neither solicit nor accept gifts from any entities that they regulate. The appearance of impropriety can be as damning as bribery is to public confidence."

And now Espy is (arguably) giving counsel to the corrupt engineer who has raped and pillaged the public trust and financial coffers for years. It's simply a matter of when he will tumble and who goes down with him. They all feel safe - Which is fine.

So what happened at the BOS meeting??? Obviously no one here commenting knows either.

If Espy is defending Rudy and the Board, then that's all I need to know about them.

And I don't mean that in a GOOD way.

You are a partisan hack.

The jury found him not guilty....of anything.

Now you attempt to smear him and all around him with statements from who? From the guy who lost!

Everyone can see what you are doing man. Folks these days are smarter than that.

Everyone reading this needs to ask Mary:

Who is paying you to run against Pickering?

Is it possible that Scruggs is behind this? Could she possibly be taking money from trial lawyers?

If that were true - how would people who read this blog react to such a revelation?

Mary with trial lawyer money.....ask her if she has taken a dime from a trial lawyer....and who all she takes it from?

Anonymous said...

8:44, you may be onto something. Is it possible that Mary is being financed by Jim Barksdale? How about the Koch brothers? Maybe Miss Carol Channing? I wonder how people would react if those things were true?

Then again, maybe you aren't onto something...

toejangle said...

Hey 8:44 9:48 is not a partisan hack he is right on with his post Espy was guilty and everyone knows it. Espy defending Warnock and the B.O.S is a joke!!! It seems the only posters on this site are Espy and Warnock----Espy was innocent the same way O.J. was..

Anonymous said...

Espy worked for a really dirty president and was fired for being dishosest. Espy is really really dirty.

Anonymous said...


Espy was found not guilty. If you have information to the contrary, please link it here. Otherwise, quit wasting peoples time.


Did you ask her? No, you haven't.

What are you afraid of? What is the harm in asking if trial lawyers back her?

Answer back ONLY after you have received notarized, signed statement from Mary saying she has taken no money from trial lawyers.

She is playing you and yours' like a fiddle brother.

On Count One Of The Indictment said...

8:44 ~ Why would Scruggs gives a rat's ass about a race like this one. Right now he's attempting to re-acquaint himself with a king sized soft mattress and highballs in the evening on demand. He could not care less about this level of politics.

I'm no 'partisan hack', you embecile. But, I am able to read and I have a good memory. If Scruggs were supporting Mary and you are supporting Rudy (and possibly Pickleman, you tell me.....Who is the odd man out?

You are worse than a hack.

You won't even entertain the idea that there MAY be something you DONT know.

You are the worst type of blogger. You refuse to look directly at what someone is telling you...all because you "know better" when you really know zilch.

Good thing I didn't tell you to look out for a truck...cause you would be pummeled by now you fool.

Have you asked? No, you have not.

Trial lawyer? I thought a trial lawyer was any lawyer who actually took cases to trials before juries. That would essentially be almost every lawyer with the exception of the few who sit in offices and just make deals over the phone. If I hire a lawyer, he had better be a "Trial Lawyer", because that's what I'll want, a trial. I surely wouldn't hire someone who has never been in a courtroom.
By the way, remember that 12 rational people, who were actually IN THE COURTROOM and listened to ALL the evidence in the Espy trial, found him not guilty.

Noticing Pants On Fire said...

Trial lawyers typically support democrats, not republicans. 8:44/3:33 has gotten all antsy because he thinks he has breaking news and nobody will argue with him about his fantasy. And while he fantacizes about Mary taking a lawyer's donation, the rest of us will wonder how much was in the envelope Rudy slipped to Pickering. Rucy is well known for using only 'legal size' envelopes.

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.

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.
