Madison County Election Commission met today at 10:00. The public notice was posted in one place Friday. Street committee said the Commission intended to ask Circuit Clerk Lee Westbrook to accept four votes. The election has been certified. Sarah Fowler (Clarion-Ledger) streamed in on Periscope. Watch it here.  It gets real hot at the end. Ms. Fowler provided much more information on her Twitter feed.

When is the court hearing on the election? Will the Commissions actions change anything?

So, what happened? Is Westbrook going to take the votes? WTH?

Holy crap! Just watched the video. Seems like it wouldn't be hard to get a DUI on the lady in the house coat. Tucker needs to assign a special unit to tailing her. Those three make the Hinds County Election Commission look like Mensa members.

Do y'all think anyone is going to run against these clowns? Surely there is someone in district 2?

What is this foolishness? Who are these people?

Is this racial disparity?

With Mrs Westbrook going out there is no telling what she will do. What ever she does it will be what the law says.

Elections have consequences. Karl Banks and Greg Brand now control the elections in Madison County.

Westbrook will not do anything with this. She (unlike the commissioners) understand the law and isn't about to break it for these (or any other) idiots.

The boxes containing the materials from the election are to be sealed and to remain sealed until a judge (Lackey) says otherwise, since a contest has been filed. The commissioners no longer have anything (Legally) to do with the election; but evidently they either think they do or they don't care about the law - or both!

Bet your sweet ass that Westbrook ain't breaking the law in her last few days in office. Hope that her replacement (heavily backed by Greg Brand in campaign) has sense enough to learn something about her new position before she decides to follow the path well worn in Madison County to Rudy's place.

Will this shit ever end? Every day we see more and more crap in the media about these clowns attempting to write laws, change laws, ignore laws and pretend there ARE no laws.

Mike Espy (For The People) is supposed to be advising this gaggle of clowns. Speaks well for both his expertise and THEIR dependency on incompetent council.

District 2,4 and 5 need to get familiar with the election code and stop making things up. District 1 and 3 are the only ones with any sense.

This clip of a meeting is probably the most racist talk I have heard in 40 years. What is this us and them? Were they elected by voters or just "us" or just "them"? Who do they represent, the voters in toto or just "us"? Better straighten up or we need to bring in the law. Hate speech.

Kingfish said...

Mr. Espy doesn't advise or represent the Election Commission.

Kingfish Is In The Dark said...

Oh, you think not? Mr Espy advises whoever Barbara Blackmon tells him to advise. You live in Jackson and do not understand the inner-working of politics north of County Line Road.

Kingfish said...

any proof of an Espy-Blackmon connection besides the fact they are both black?

There has never been an honest election in Ms. Not likely to happen either. It would be much better and more honest to flip a coin instead of allowing the people to vote multiple times, dead people voting, and people coming from other areas to vote.
Better yet, let the politicians get in the ring and fight for what they want. That isn't much different than what we now have.

Madison County Politics said...

The race of Espy and Blackmon is irrelevant. It's the politics that matters. They're both long-time, die-hard Canton Democrats with a large degree of control of the voter base. Dig a little deeper, Kingfish, instead of your usual 'surface reporting'.

Again, and this has been requested numerous times, can you please state a timeline, including DATE with these posts. Your lead post says 'today', but it's not what clear WHAT day you're talking about. It would be helpful to have a date stamp on these reports. Thanks.

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. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
