GUILTY!!!

The "Reverend" Kenneth Fairley was found guilty on all counts today in U.S. District Court.  The Hattiesburg American reported:



A jury has found the Rev. Kenneth Fairley guilty of two counts of theft of government funds and conspiracy to defraud the government, involving money received from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development through grants administered by the city of Hattiesburg.
Somewhere in Mississippi, Marcus Dupree is smiling.

Wonder will he put Marcus Dupree on his visition list and ask for forgiveness.

Thank goodness! The good citizens of Hattiesburg must be happy right now. I was told that Johnny Dupree, the Hattiesburg Mayor, testified on Fairley's behalf. Not a smart move by Dupree.

A real shame that a minister to so many would put himself in this situation. Maybe a message for ministers to stick to that profession.

He was no minister. He is a fraud and a huckster and has been for a long time. The "good preacher" routine is / was just a facade. Ask Marcus Dupree.

Mark my words... Fairley, Dupree, Bolton... Those aren't the ones they are going after hard. Those are the ones they are using to get to Bennie Thompson. If they keep popping the guys left and right with 10-20 year sentences, before long they will start singing on ole Bennie.... Mark my words... Bennie is the one they are after.

Marcus Dupree has been posting quite a bit on Facebook and his posts are public. If there ever was a situation where the word "karma" should be applied, it's Kenny Fairley being found guilty and facing prison time - prosecuted by a black U.S. attorney and unanimously convicted by a jury that was 50% black.

Maybe the Feds are after Bennie, but if they can clean up the corruption in Hattiesburg and Forrest County along the way, their presence is welcomed. Too bad they couldn't have overseen Ware v. (Johnny) DuPree.

I'm sorry, I have a hard time believing the statement above. Not saying they "should not" go after BT, but rather will not. I don't think they will unless they anticipate Trump winning come November.
BHO won't and I don't think Billary would allow their AG and justice department to investigate and prosecute. It's the sad state of affairs our legal system has become (clearly politicized) yet here we find ourselves none the less.

KF, don't know how to go about this, but are you looking into the front page (and subsequent entire 2nd page) article of the CL today by Pender about MEMA/Latham and that crooked bitch Deb Biggers???
They are only starting to sniff at all the absolute crooked BS that went on under RL and went completely unchecked with Biggers breaking the law left and right. This may be the house of cards that brings the country deputy down. It has been that big of a cluster inside MEMA for the last 5 years. Smithson is a total no BS guy who is the right type of person to put in there but it may be too little too late and end up costing the state tens of millions.
This is going to get a lot bigger quickly and affect a lot more federal grant programs MEMA administers where funds are unaccounted for and/or misappropriated.

What has Marcus Depree got to do with anything here?

Many think Fairley, acting as Marcus's agent, stole a lot of money from his pro football contracts.

Please make an effort to catch up before you comment. A simple search on the two names would have brought you up to speed quickly.

Don't know the Duprees without a program said...

I was wondering the same thing, 5:50. Apparently some people don't know the difference between Marcus Dupree, the former football player, and Johnny Dupree, the mayor of Hattiesburg.

Can't be true. The man is a preacher.

@10:57 With the Obama "Just Us" Justice Dept there is no way in Hell anyone is going after Bennie. Black Dem "leaders" are immune to prosecution regardless of their corrupt ways. Karl Banks would be in prison right now if that were not the case.

Do you know what inanity is? Complaining about the Obama Justice Department's unwillingness to prosecute black leaders in a thread dedicated to its winning a conviction against one such leader.

We could also talk about the convictions it's won against Jesse Jackson Jr., Chaka Fattah, Bill Jefferson, and several local black officials. But I fear the Fox News mentality is too entrenched.

@8:59 insanity would be an appropriate term to describe your need to continually lecture readers here at JJ.

Race seems to come up in way too many threads. Perhaps we as a society have not advanced as far as we believe. As has been point out, a popular black preacher was convicted by a jury that was 50% black and prosecuted by a black Attorney General under a black President. Additionally, one of the prosecutors on the case was black as well. Contrary to what some believe, most blacks desire to live in a crime free society as well. Blacks also believe that individuals should be held accountable for our actions. What most blacks have a problem with is selective prosecution. For instance former Gulfport Mayor Brent Warr got a sweetheart deal of no jail time when he committed fraud. (I wonder if Defendant Fairly was offered a similar deal.)

Now some if you all appear to be fascinated with the idea of Bennie Thompson being investigated. I am curious, did you all call for an investigation of Trent Lott when he was calling up Judges and offering to help them get nominated to the federal court so that his brotherinlaw could get favorable rulings from those Judges.

Dupree is as crooked as they come. What Pastor Fairley should do is give the FEDS what he knows about Dupree and his dealings. Although he may have benefited from all those wastewater dealings and the crook campaigning for governor and the unaccounted for monies from the mystery donors and " Greg Brand." OR maybe I am saying to much.

8:04, apparently some people (including you) do not know the history between "Reverend" Fairley and Marcus Dupree.
8:03, thank you.

1104 - you need to identify 'which' Dupree you speak of. The reference many have made in their comments are about football great Marcus Dupree that Fairly screwed out of millions of dollars and much of his life. Marcus is a fine upstanding man that has straightened out the life this 'preacher' led him to.

You obviously are referring to the Mayor Johnny Dupree no relation to Marcus. Johnny and his wife Jonice both need to follow their friend and supporter Fairly to jail. Rumor has it that a if might be brought into this scam of Fairley's b ed fore it is over as she was definitely involved in the HUD program. Johnny could go with Ken for several reasons - along with many members of his administration and campaign support group.

Anonymous said...

10:57 & 8:18. Exactly what could Fairley or any one else "sing" on about Cong. Thompson. What supposed illegal activity was the congressman involved in doing? Or is this just your racist hatred of Cong. Thompson because he is a strong black man who says what is on his mind and refuses to kiss butt? So come on folks, either state what the congressman has done illegally or crawl back under your KKK sheets!

Anonymous said...

Don't know who all could sing but becoming aillionaire while working for $29k as a county supervisor would be a good start. And then the extra millions he has made while a congressman could be looked into.my question would be his intervention with HUD for benefit of his buddy Mayor Dupree where this criminal activity was found.

Bennie Thompson is a target. Has been since 2011. He used resources to obstruct a 2011 investigation. It worked, but they knew what was up, and they laid a trap. It's slowly closing.

Hattiesburg Patriot facebook page had the best video coverage.

Seriously? This peckerhead thinks contributors here who want to ask a question are going to google/research names of people rather than ask a simple question? The question was asked and answered by a knowledgeable poster. Two hours later this goob offers his non-contribution.

When Charles Bolton is found GUILTY, rumor has it that the puppet for BigDaddy Dukes, known as Sheriff Billy Magee is next but before his trial he will hire former Hattiesburg Police Chief Frazier Bolton as his chief for the Forrest County Sheriff Office. Wasn't he released by Johnny Dupree of his duties at HPD and Bolton was hired else where to oversee the police chief they hired after several court dates where Johnny Dupree was force to appoint the present chief after legal actions were taken on Dupree. If this isn't a clear sign of attempting to keep control and regulate criminal activity within the local government there.

I heard about that Hattiesburg Patriot.com, from what I've read the staff there are on top of things going on in that community. I'm still laughing about the clip that was recorded when Mayor Johnny Dupree lost his composure, pushing the reporter and attempting to take his camera. If you haven't heard or checked this site out yet you need to prepare yourself for some Good entertainment.

Hattiesburg Patriot said...

Frazier Bolton will not be coming back to this area to take any job. He gave those comments on camera. People do expect the Sheriff to be indicted.

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.

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.
