Yes, some people are that dumb.

What is it about Lee Abraham that makes him a target?  The Taxpayers Channel reported:

A Cleveland man has been indicted for trying to shake down local attorney Lee Abraham for money in exchange for his efforts to stop a fictitious Mexican Mafia "hit" against Abraham.

Cleveland resident Dartagnan Centerio Bronner, 28, was indicted July 15th by the Leflore County Grand Jury for the crime of "false pretense."

According to the indictment, Mr. Bronner is accused "on or about April 9, 2016, [of] unlawfully, willfully, and feloniously with intent to cheat and defraud, obtain[ing] the money of Lee Abraham, in an amount greater than five hundred dollars, by making false pretenses or representations, knowing the same to be false, in relation to an alleged Mexican Mafia 'hit' contract on Lee Abraham which DARTAGNAN CENTERIO BRONNER offered to have taken care of in exchange for money in an amount greater than five hundred dollars...."

Mr. Abraham is not unfamiliar with such threats. In 2012, a shoot-out took place at his office on Market Street between alleged hit men and agents of the State Attorney General's office, leaving one of the suspects dead and the other wounded.

Later that day, local oncologist Dr. Arnold Smith was arrested for hiring the alleged hit-men and sending them to kill Mr. Abraham. Smith was later declared mentally incompetent to stand trial, and remains at the State Mental Hospital. The surviving suspect has yet to be tried.

All sorts of conspiracy theories and recriminations erupted in the wake of that 2012 shoot-out. Abraham filed a civil suit against Smith for plotting to kill him. Just before it was supposed to go to trial, Smith filed for federal bankruptcy protection, postponing the civil trial now for almost two years.

Bankruptcy papers revealed that Smith is worth in excess of $10 million, with relatively minor debts totaling less than $250,000. The bankruptcy filing was widely viewed as a stalling tactic by Smith.

Abraham's suit against Smith is now scheduled to be tried early next year. See Federal Judge sends Abraham v. Smith back to state court for trial.

As for Dartagnan Bronner, his police record is littered with multiple arrests for domestic violence in Greenwood stretching back to 2006. it is not clear whether he was ever convicted on any of the previous charges.

No connection has been suggested between Mr. Bronner's activities and Dr. Smith or any of his alleged accomplices.
The indictment against Bronner was brought, not by the Leflore County District Attorney's office, but by a member of the Attorney General's staff acting as a special prosecutor.

Ol Dartagnan's facebook page says he studied international relations at Harvard University. Wonder why someone that bright would resort to such a stupid ploy?

Worth in excess of $10 million? Bullshit

Cancer doc

Oncology pays well....he prayed on people on their last hope and charged accordingly....invested wisely....and spent little.

He bilked Medicare for every dime available.

That net worth is probably low and does not count what apartment complexes and other real property he has transferred.

8:33 apparently believes everything anyone posts on Facebook. Let me know when Hahvahd verifies his claim.

Last time I checked, the AG is not a super-D.A. Where exactly does the AG get the authority to press these kinds of charges?

And more fundamentally, why does Lee Abraham continually get to use the AG staff as his personal bodyguards / prosecutors??? Inquiring minds want to know.

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.
