What did he know & when did he know it?

Stokes said something about the water thefts by city employees and Jackson residents at the regular meeting of the Jackson City Council Tuesday night:

So Mr. Stokes, how long have you known about the "hook-ups" and why didn't you report it? Better yet, why didn't you raise hell about it at a city council meeting as you love to raise hell about everything else.

What an embarrassment.

or, you know, maybe this was an investigation in progress and he didn't want to jeopardize it until everyone involved was caught.

Of course he knew it was going on. And he didn't give a shit. It's an expectation. He viewed it as an entitlement. He might not know that all these 'Po an Elderly' he wants 'protectin' are on medicaid and they don't pay for medicines. They might pay for drugs but they don't pay for medicines.

Of course Stokes knew. So did every other black member of the Jackustan City Council. Give 'em all a polygraph and they all will fail. Yarber, Harvey and the Chokwes too!

Now the question is when the workers installing the new meters discovered a straight pipe what did they do? Did they get a piece of the action or install a meter?

Nobody would have done a damn thing about any of this had there not been a need to audit the $90 Million Dollar Siemens debacle.

They have to choose between medicine and food, and unless we give Farish Street to Respect Our Black Dollars and the others demanding it, then they won't have no cornbread or pig ear sandwiches or sausage sandwiches.

This is a crisis!

Has there been an audit of that debacle? Were results made public?.....I must have missed it.

Kind of a moot point about straight-piping knowledge, now that Yarber decided that there's no real need for anyone to pay their water bill. After all, the water's not going to be cut off, so why pay? Kennuf believes that now he can let everyone know that he's known all along and nothing will happen.

Powell said this week there were as a many as 1,700 illegal hookups. One resident has had a straight pipe, illegal hookup for seven years, according to Powell.

Only a fool believes that Stokes was the only Council member to know this was going on. There is a reason why the meter replacement began in NEJackson.

What did the workers installing the new meters do when they discovered a straight pipe? Did they get a piece of the action or install a meter? Start asking the hard questions Foote.

Straight Pipe said...

Councilman De'Keither Stamps said a rate increase should only be a last resort. He said everything else should be looked at to raise water revenue, including enforcing the laws on the books.

Ya think De'Keither? Cracking down on city employee corruption was somehow only an option before now? You've NEVER heard even rumors that people in your district were stealing water?

Give us a break.

Of course he knew. He probably hasnt paid for water in years

Of course he knew! He's as crooked as the rest of them.

Stokes isn't smart enough to be a crook. Just a lot of mouth and little brains. Sure he knew about the theft but that wasn't considered theft to him.

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.
