Banks claims 29 ballots omitted; challenges certification.

Madison County District 4 Supervisor Karl Banks challenged the certification of the District 4 supervisor election as he claimed 29 affidavit ballots were omitted from the results.  He sent this letter to the Madison County Election Commission.

It seems to me in parts that this letter that affidavit and absentee are used interchangeably. These are two entirely different types of ballots. Also, it was my understanding that affidavit ballots go into the ballot boxes at the time they are cast except in the case of delayed ID, which are sealed.

Rudy. It's time to pack your belongings. The gravey train will end as soon as the new board cuts you loose.

Of course he will make something up to challenge. The Election commissioners are honest and capable people. Banks knows that if Bishops election is certified, his chances drop on overturning the election.

Banks will do anything to stay in power. He has a history of lying and cheating.

Rudy is shaking in his boots. He has millions at stake.
Tim Johnson and some developers too.

Banks has been there 32 years. He needs to move on. He has had his hands in our pockets way too long.

The last gasp of a very wicked and demonic man. The people of Madison County were very clear. CLEAN OUT THE CORRUPTION FROM MADISON COUNTY GOVERNMENT. Go Home Banks. Your days are over in County government.

Tens of millions of taxpayer dollars have been given to developers. The last of which was the $6 million taxpayer bailout of the developer of Lost Rabbit.

Espy needs to go too.

When it comes to this garbage I'll wait to hear what Pete Perry says.

Hope you get paid Dorsey because Banks is not to be trusted.

Banks should give up. He is not going to be able to build the Karl Banks International Airport anyway since now there will be three strong votes against it. No Rudy Warnock Terminal Building and no Tim Johnson Field.

Regional airports are going under all over the country unless local governments pour millions into operating them.

That had to be Banks' and Warnock' biggest bonehead idea of all. Of course, Warnock has already made $1.2 million off of the "study". Knoxville paid only $300,000 for a similar study and used the same form that Warnock subbed the work to.

Anonymous at 5:01 PM, "wicked and demonic" is a far stretch. I'm not a Banks supporter but would never call him that. Those terms should be reserved for abusers and murderers and such.

5:38; Why waste your time with that tripe? You mention Banks and then go on to suggest he just MIGHT be an abuser. Either you don't live in Madison County or you ain't got shit for sense.

Red ink is red ink. Banks' regional airport is Uncle Ben Allen's convention center. Only difference is the convention center has already lost over $4 MILLION dollars after Jackson voters were told it would operationally break even.

Actually, Banks' concept for a Madison County Regional Airport and Haberdashery is a swell idea. Bass Masters' Classic will be flying in a lot of people to fish the new lake. Mr. Patel be planning several area motels too.

Idiot at 7:24, read 5:38 again. It in NO way attaches Banks to being an abuser. It reads that the wicked and demonic terms should be reserved for such acts as murder and abuse - meaning that anything that Banks might be accused of is not even close. For the record, I am from Madison County and I have plenty of sense. You seem to have none.

What is an "undervote"? If it was defined anywhere in there I missed it.

Actually Banks has previously said he would be fine with retiring. It's Rudy who is shaking in his boots and needs to keep Banks in power.

Sarah Fowler, once again, reporting certification in favor or Bishop.

10:26, do not believe what Banks says. He is the master deceiver.

Anonymous said...

election commission certifies Bishop the winner by 2 votes. Two election commissioners voted not to certify. Did they count differently? Did they want to count ballots that the others did not. What is the story here?

The election commission attorney, Spence Flatgard, is a smart and honest attorney. I believe he would not let the Commission screw this up.

Anonymous said...

The two dissenting commissioners were voting a partisan political vote, not the job that they were elected to do. These are the same two commissioners that broke the law Tuesday to try to swing this vote to Banks - at Rudy's push through his mouthpiece Carson. We can all be glad that Flatgard is their attorney and kept them on pace to follow the law. Too bad that Madison County has two elected officials running their election that are no more honest than the folks that have been in control of Canton's city elections for the past decade.

11:58, I forgot that Banks' counsel was the same as Rudy's. Interesting detail you point out. Likely telling.

10:58 The three commissioners voted to certify the election WITHOUT 29 affidavit ballots that were counted in public with both candidates plus 6 affidavit ballots that were thrown out but according to the law, was good.

11:58 Flatgard allowed 3 commissioners to break the law. Three Commissioner chose to not count 35 votes. The commissioners purposely didn't add these votes to the final number. I think certifying bogus numbers are actually illegal and corrupt, well according to the law.

10:58 and 11:58. You are both wrong. Banks legally lost. He needs to quit being a whiney baby and congratulate the winner. Rudy and his minions know that millions are at stake. Regardless, Warnock is gone gone gone. He and Banks can get their slimy dirty hands out of our pockets. A great day for Madison County.

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.

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.
