Hinds Sheriff's thread.

The only competitive race in Hinds County, hell, in Hinds, Rankin, or Madison counties is the Sheriff's race.  Victor Mason, Les Tannehill, and Charlotte whatshername are all running for the office today.  Feel free to comment away on this thread.  No name-calling and no slander.

I met Les at a Fondren First Thursday event in October. Seemed like a nice enough guy with a lot of passion for the position.

Praying the Attorney General race will also result in a much needed
change.
GO VOTE

I would vote for Victor if we only gave him one bullet to keep in his pocket.

Do you really see this race as competitive? Hard to see how Mason loses.

Les Tannehill is going to surprise a few folks tonight. At least I hope so because Hinds County needs him

Victor takes 61% of the vote. He will win Jackson, Edwards, Bolton, and Utica.

But the good guys don't wear black hats, what's up with that?

If they can get the African American vote to turn out and actually vote. This race will not be as close as people think. Victor is going to carry that vote heavily. And he seems to have a little support in NE Jackson. If he can carry any of the county this will be over quick.

Mason is an empty suit that can dress well and articulate his words. We already have one of those in the White House and look how the Country has declined and lost power.
Les is a great Christian guy that is old school police. Why someone like him would want the job is the better question but I am glad that he does. Like a previous poster said, he has a great passion for the law and seeing it upheld. He is also passionate about turning our communities around and bettering Hinds County.
The other two candidates are going to mess this race up for Les. Both should have dropped out. They may hand the election to Victor. I think the other independent in the race is there to make sure Victor gets the win. He may have even been promised a job by Mason like so many other people. Let's see how those promises hold up when he is elected.

Charlette Oswalt is experienced, educated, hard-working and honest. She has my vote.

Les Tannehill has just popped up to run for Sheriff, he promised that McPherson fella Under Sheriff if he wins. Tannehill is fake and trying to use his "Christian Values" to declare himself the chosen one. His whole campaign recently has been targeted at Mason. If you are such of a Walker Texas Ranger, you should make it just fine. He acts like Oswalt and Thompson are not in the race. Since the Sheriff in Simpson County lost they are seeking refuge with Hinds.

I live in NE Jackson and i voted for Mason. I never met any of the candidates but what i read about them caused me to vote for Mason. He was the only Dem i voted for.

Mason will take the race with 60 % plus, all based on demographics. Jim Hood will win easily but may be closer than usual, Brent Bailey wins central PSC race, Vern Gavin wins the 4th district supervisor race in Hinds. Unfortunately the 42 amendment will pass.

Jim Hood will win easily but may be closer than usual ...

You really took a stand on that one.

Brent Bailey wins central PSC race ...

Really like Bailey but this conservative is voting for Cecil Brown. The establishment wing of the Mississippi Republican party is up to their collective earlobes in the Kemper debacle and a Republican majority on the PSC is not the solution.

What about Rankin Chancery? There are 4 people in that race. Looks like it will be an eventual run- off. I cant imagine voters are dumb enough to blindly support a law clerk over 3 experienced attorneys.

Tannehill will show better than the demographics support. Mason took it for granted, but he will still win. Stubblefield will show better than expected in 5 but the Bobcat will still win even though he disappeared after the primary. The republican hold on district 4 will come down the wire.

$JustSaying - If that $$ sign means anything in your name, I'll take you on with your prediction of V Gavin. Don't doubt the Mason prediction just as you said - based on demographics. If you want to make a trifecta out of it, I'll give you your calls on the AG and PSC along with Gavin - and that'll give you a chance. Those two are too close to call.

@1:21 No runoff in general elections. Highest vote wins.

Anonymous said...

2:01. Wrong, but many people get it wrong - both ways. There is a runoff in the judicial races. (They did not have a primary.) As far as regular general election contests, there is no runoff. But the non-partisan races do have a runoff - on Tuesday before Thanksgiving.

Frankly, this is all interesting commentary. But I want an answer to the important issue.

KF - Once the election is over tomorrow, can we all be assured that the ad with Gilbert/Dilbert will disappear from our screens? I am so damned tired of seeing his ugly, ego driven, ignorant ass mug popping up on my screen that I will pay if need be to get it gone.

Rumor has it...Karl Banks is a little concerned about his seat on MCBOS. More republicans turned out and voted for his opponent than democrats did for Banks in the primary. Not sure about Griffin. Jolly ran against him last time, his name is out there but I doubt he will be able to pull it off. I wonder if the "Leaky Lake" is going to help Jolly any.

Gavin has a chance why?

Tannehill will come down to the wire. It would be a big upset, so I'm not calling it. But he will show well.

If I had to guess, Victor 55-45

Anonymous said...

No way it runs 55-45, Tannehill saw or felt something this last week to make him start making attack ads. 60 percent plus for Mason.

Anonymous said...

3:09, think you are right, both on the Gavin question and the percentage. But.. where I come from, 10% ain't 'coming down to the wire". It will be a good showing for Tannehill considering the demos, but not a photofinish.

Anonymous said...

Ok. Here's a concession, I'm just trying to hedge against all risk here. I'll vote for Victor if he gets TWO bullets to keep in his pocket. I understand that JPD has gone through some budget cuts and this is a generous offer on my part.

Tannehill has cut a deal with Tyrone

Anonymous said...

Why are we even talking about the man in the hat? Cuz he looks like a badass and has facial hair? What organizational skills does he have that Victor doesn't? That being said, the Sheriff's just riding off the success of Commander McGowan and Lt Freeman. They make him look good. When things go down, do you call the Sheriff or JPD? Yes. Thought so.

Because your predictions were so right during the primary....

No way Gavin wins - he ain't gonna carry Clinton, not by a long ways. Morgan wins easily.
Mason too.

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.
