Karl Banks sues Madison County Election Commission

Madison County District 4 Supervisor Karl Banks sued the Madison County Election Commission and David Bishop today in Madison County Circuit Court. Mr. Banks lost the recent election to Mr. Bishop by two votes. Mr. Banks claims the Commission didn't open four sealed paper affidavit ballots and improperly excluded 27 affidavit ballots as well.  The complaint is posted below.

Sour Cream - The 4 unopened ballots were not properly signed and therefore were disqualified. The 27 ballots were counted on 2 separate occasions.

Dorsey loves getting paid.

Facts don't matter 5:43. He's black, therefore discriminated against. Smell the continual boo hoo coffee.

Why can't Banks just be a man and admit he lost??? Oh, I'm sorry; that would be asking him to behave like a gentlemen!

I hope 5:43 is correct and that can be proven. If so, Dorsey is S.O.L. but can whine another day for sure.

5:43 the 4 unopened ballots were verified by the circuit clerk as being "good" You don't know what you're talking about.
9:31 he didn't lose, there are at least 27 votes that were opened but not scanned. It's simple math. They're side has been telling them this before they certified the election. The election commissioners just did a bad job at breaking the law and trying to cover it up. There's no reason why ballots sould still be in an envelope if they were counted.

I find it interesting that Dorset couldn't win his own campaign in NE Jackson and wants to advise others of how to run there campaign. Of course he ran as a Democrat in a NE Jackson republican district. Shows how smart he is.

He lost. Move on. It's not that good of a job anyway.

You lost. End of story. Certainly you can find another job that you are better qualified for... I bet the new Greenwood Plantation Costco will be hiring soon

Y'all need to reread who filed the complaint.

White Madison prop owner said...

Karl Banks' experience has helped the county attract much of the things that people are proud of in Madison Co. The loss of his leadership will be a blow and will cost the taxpayers.

Anonymous said...

Ha! Phelps Dunbar and former MS Sup Court Justice Fred Banks filed the suit.

All you folks spewing hate toward Dorsey didnt even read it.

Hate much?

Be sure and sit in the front pew this Christmas all you good and fine church going hateful SOBs

@8:25 White prop owner? Well hello Rudy!

I dont have any experience with elections or anything related to an election other than voting......if it can be proven that the election commission wrongfully and unlawfully certified the election why cant the secretary of state step in, appoint an independent panel to recount the district 4 vote under the secretary of states supervision and put this to rest? AND if proven the election was wrongfully and unlawfully certified, impeach the sitting election commission and elect a new commission under secretary of state supervision.......just a question and a thought

Exhibit 4 was filed after the election was held. Do updates to voter information not have to be submitted prior to the election?

It also looks like the Ms. Williams intends to change her name? Notice that she left off the "s" on Williams on the blank that is intended to indicate what information has changed.

Poor Karl. His airport plans may never come to fruition. He did get a new building named after him though and he is still in office.

Spoken like a true Banks supporter. What were you getting out of the deal and how much business was being thrown your way???

You're speaking like a real crook. But I guess its fine for individuals to take away someone's rights, well, I guess as long as it's not yours??

Nothing has to be "thrown" someone's way in order for them to have Common Sense. I know how to read, unlike many of you.The letter was posted last week explaining this to the election commissioners and the Petition states it as well.
Maybe you are too corrupt to see that they're throwing away the voters' votes, which is illegal. Apparently, that is fine with you? Also, I like to think that its spoken like a real law abiding citizen who wouldn't want their rights taken away. The law is the law and it was broken.

wrong person, Take another guess. Hint?

Shouldn't all of you be hating on Dorsey for something else he didn't do today? I mean after all, Christmas is just around the corner and nothing says I Love Jesus more than hating someone for something they didn't do.

Raise those kiddos just right you hear?

Love the comments from folks who (1) don't know a damn thing about the law; (2) assume everything they read in a petition is fact and correct; and (3) think that elections should be decided by what they want not what is correct.

First - the Four Affidavit Ballots were not found to be "good", dear 6:48, they were found by the Circuit Clerk to be registered voters. The Circuit Clerk does not make a determination as to whether an Affidavit Ballot is to be counted or not. That is the decision of the Election Commission.

The reason these four Affidavit Ballots were not accepted was because although the voter may at one time have been registered, they did not vote in the precinct where they live. Dorsey, and Lisa, cried about this at the time they were reviewed, but the Election Commission read the law and followed it. Ms Ross argued that they were in the correct Supervisor District so they should count - but that is not what the law says, and that is not what the Commission did. The four Affidavit Ballots were not found to have been voted in the precinct of the voter, so they were rejected.

Next - the so-called 27 uncounted ballots do not add up. Too bad Dorsey never finished high school math, nor does former Justice Banks who evidently believed everything Dorsey told him. A simple totaling of the votes, even as described in the petition (although with a lot of extra verbage trying to make it hard to understand) shows that the so-called uncounted votes are included in the total.

And dear 9:18, its not the Secretary of State's job to make that kind of determination. While I am sure Gilbert would love to be able to dictate such actions that - in our system of democracy - if left to the judicial system. If a Judge finds that the votes were not counted, the Judge can deal with it. If a Judge found that had happened intentionally, it can be turned over to the local DA for action. But - we haven't crowned anyone to be a Royal yet even in our election systems, so go find that clue wherever you lost it.

Even better, he finished MRA math!

Dorsey, you ought to be ashamed for either posting your own self-serving comments or having your buddies doing it for you, trying to continue the same false claim about 'breaking the law' and 'refusing to count' and 'throwing out someone's vote'.

The purpose of a good election is to count all LEGALLY cast votes. Those votes that do not met the requirements of the law don't get counted. And all your crying doesn't change the fact - the voters who didn't vote at the right precinct don't get their votes counted.

Does anybody actually *read* these long ass posts like 4:22? Too damn much trouble.

Dorsey Carson said...

I always use my real name in the few times that I post, @8:17 PM. I'm assuming that you posted half of these comments. I had trial today, so apologize for not responding sooner to all your enlightening comments.

Dorsey is disinterested, yet he responds here faster than Matt Dillon's draw.

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.

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.

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.
