Madison Update: WE FOUND US A BAG OF VOTES!!!!

The Clarion-Ledger's Sarah Fowler tweeted these reports from the courthouse in Canton over the last couple of hours:

Bishop had 2352 and Banks had 2340 at last official count. But then Bishop earned 21 and Banks earned 16. Tomorrow morning should be it.

 Ok. So basically the last hour or so has been hurry up and wait. Clerk shut everything down at 5.We have 108 affidavits and 22 curbside left (KF note: Curbside voters must be the nursing home voters preparing to move into someone's funeral home. Nyuk nyuk nyuk).

Banks said he "feels good. I got it just the way I want it."
Meanwhile, the Madison County Journal reported:

Election officials were scrambling Wednesday trying to find a missing bag with 33 absentee ballots and 13 affidavit ballots from the Lake Caroline voting precinct as District 4 Supervisor Karl Bank's political future hangs in the balance.

Counting stopped Wednesday at 5 p.m. with Republican challenger David Bishop leading the eight-term Democrat Banks by 17 votes after machine and absentee ballots were tallied. Officials were hand-counting between 50-100 affidavit and curbside ballots from the district. (See Thursday for updates.)

The ballots were later found inside a supply bag after phone calls to poll managers.

Three ballots from Canton District 4 precinct were later discovered missing, too, one official said.

Funny how it just happens to be a lake caroline precinct where Banks lives that 33 ballots just magically pop up. Will be interesting to see how that swings the vote.

If Bishop wins I wonder if Banks will bow out with the grace of a long time statesman or pitch a fit, file suit and raise hell?

I bet all of his kin folk and inlaws that are employed by the county are having a sphincter check right about now.

Good luck beating a Democrat if it comes down to absentee ballots.Thats where most of the fraud comes from.

If the race is this close, Banks will win on the dead people vote or many of the other tricks that are used. Finding a bag of uncounted votes kept George Smith in office for 25 years.

If this is true its making the voting commissioners who are all elected officials look real bad and the poll workers too.

I see a lack of posts belching about impropriety. I guess that only happens in OTHER counties when OTHER people are involved.

As I said in an earlier post, there's more voter fraud in the Canton part of Lake Caroline than anywhere else in the State. This is nothing new. Lake Caroline will carry Bishop as the new supervisor. Hence the voting 'irregularities'.

I wish someone that cares would look into the school bond that was passed a few months ago. Laws were broken. Residents complained. Complaints fell on deaf ears. A fraudulent vote passed.

Voter fraud in the "perfect" county. No crime, gangs, or voter fraud in Madison County. Yup- all in Hinds. Move along...

Then, by all means, start belching but please stop bellyaching that not enough complaints are being registered.

Banks is definitely a minority in the Lake Caroline hood. He wouldn't carry that area if he accompanied each voter into the booth.

Supreme irony that both district 4 and 5 may hinge on a 'LAKE' vote. 5 hinged and a sand lake and 4 hinges on a bag of lake votes.

Meanwhile, TimElvis was told to 'jump in the lake'. Madison County rocks!

save your breath and fingers 12:06. That money is already spent. Like you I live in Canton separate school district and I voted against the bond issue. If you have proof of your claims lets see them, call an attorney and file suit DO SOMEHTING!! Otherwise, it all over but the crying.

Lake Caroline residents should do something to have input on the selection of the Board members for the schools. they are appointed by the Canton Board of Aldermen for which the Caroline residents have no voice. Taxation without representation.

No Lake Caroline resident that lives in the Canton School District sends their child to that school district. What do they care who is on the school board of that district?

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. 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.
