Time to show you the money

The campaign finance reports for the Jackson Mayoral candidates was due at the close of business today.  All major candidates except Chokwe Lumumba, Jr. filed a campaign finance report.  However, a new PAC, Democracy for America, was formed for the express purpose of helping Mr. Lumumba.  It raised and donated all of $1,000 to his campaign.  Here are the reports.

The folks in NYC told him that campaign finance reports are racist.

Will Donner call Antar out? She hates it when candidates don't file their campaign finance reports on time? She endorsed him last time but this time does she know about his connections to Bernie Sanders whom she despises?

Feeling sorry for the Graham family; looks like they are giving their all. About all I can say about Horhn's report is Fondren is firmly in his court and the rest of the list reads like the "people who gave us Melton". Ronnie Crudup, Jr. is keeping good and honest books and getting a real education on running. Yarber's biggest supporter is no surprise: IMS. But his support is spread across the city. Interesting read. Thanks for posting.

Takeaways:

Senator Hohrn wants us poor ignorant citizens to believe that he received over $92,000 in contributions of $200 or less!

Crudup, Jr is the only candidate that can file a proper report - showing total combined expenditures and contributions for an individual or company.

IMS principals have contributed more than $15,000 (in reportable contributions) to incumbent Mayor. Not a bad investment to pay for their million dollar contract to manage the sales tax dollars.

The 'consulting business' for Jackson Mayor's race appears to be very lucrative. Floyd, Scooby Doo, Nicole, Dorothy, and on, and on, and on all seem to be doing pretty damn good during the spring of this year.

Antar's continues his belief that basic laws don't apply to him and doesn't bother to report. Must have needed more time to buy some extra vowels for to report his contributor's names.

Puppet Master Brother Kali Akuno:

Just as we were beginning to get a grip on the
governance process and starting to move our
policy agenda through the city council, Mayor
Lumumba suddenly died. Following the protocols
of the city’s charter, the city council appointed
an interim mayor and scheduled a special
election for the mayor’s seat. The special
election was called for mid-April 2014, barely a
month and a half after his death.

In order to continue advancing our agenda, the
base of our movement compelled Chokwe Antar
to run for mayor
. However, the movement
did not have enough time to really reflect on
the lessons learned from Mayor Lumumba’s
term, let alone collectively internalize them to
refine its practice. As a result, the movement
did not adequately address all of the contradictions
that had developed during the Lumumba
Administration
and led to the demobilization
of a critical part of our base. Although Chokwe
Antar made it to the run-off round of the
special election, and actually won a solid majority
of Black voters (officially 67%), he lost
the election to City Councilperson Tony Yarber
by nearly 2,500 votes. In a city that is nearly
80% Black, facts generally dictate that the person
who wins the Black majority vote wins the
elections. The 2014 Special Election was an exceptional
case, in that now-Mayor Tony Yarber
only won 32% of the Black vote but secured an
overwhelming 90% of the city’s white minority
vote, which turned out at a record-breaking
rate of 75%
.

Kali Akuno: The primary thing the Assembly is working on now is defeating the effort being led by white reactionary forces in the metropolitan region to seize control of Jackson’s water system, either by regionalizing its control board or privatizing it.

Who's Socs got his money on? I don't see his name anywhere. And there no way that he's not involved. Come on KF......inquiring minds want to know.

Lumumba better hope for a runoff against Horhn because that is the only candidate he can claim is by and large supported by whitey.

Akuno, February 2017:

Lastly, Akuno responded to a question about how the sudden death of Mayor Lumumba affected their work. Losing his leadership and control of the mayor’s office did set back their agenda on that front, so they moved focus towards the solidarity economy through Cooperation Jackson. Akuno stated frankly that the State will assassinate our leaders or do even worse than that, so there needs to be development of the depth of membership with political education.

The really funny -- or sad thing, depending on your point of view -- is that their constituents believe all of this, without a smidgen of incredulity. Stokes -- who is overwhelmingly elected every time he stands -- stated that Lumumba was assassinated. "WHO KILT DA MAYAH?" Remember that? An allegation of murder, backed by absolutely no facts or evidence.

And that might as well be beyond a reasonable doubt, to the rocket scientists in Stokes' ward...well, 80 percent of Jackson, I guess.

It's how Democrats think.

Don't care at all for Robert Graham (Motorola shakedown w/ Precious Martin, Airwave fiasco, District gerrymandering) but putting up $100k of your own dinero to stay competitive in a race to be the Mayor of a sinking ship is gutsy.

He's late Ladd. Period. You are a FRAUD.

You need to thank the Crudup family! Without them, Chris McDaniel

Speaking of the Motorola shakedown, Crystal Martin is Graham's campaign manager... smh

JFP endorses Antar again. Kiss of electoral death.

I have been appalled with Crystal Martin. The lawsuits, the vitriol on the airwaves, and how she is conducting herself as a widowed mother. She is an angry person who is contributing nothing good to Jackson.

Was Chism's poll was a by-product of his work for Virgi Lindsay?

Chism usually chimes in at the 11th campaign hour in order to claim he called the election.

Lt. Graham figured it out weeks ago. Black politicians know that LaddCo can't move the needle in an election for Jackson dogcatcher. He laughed when she whined about his skipping the "forum" for her non-voting indoctrinaires.

As of 2:15pm on 4/26 (the day after reporting is due as required by law), how can Junior get away without filing anything? If he can't submit a report that he has known was required on a specific date, how can he run the largest city in the state? His incompetence is already showing.

Anonymous said...

LMAO now BabyChok says his report might be ready by Friday and Donner is giving him a pass! Enjoy the crow Ladd.

Anonymous said...

Even if his lie about a lot of last minute contributions wasn't a lie but had some truth to it, that doesn't fly. The report is due as of yesterday, but thru the 22nd. Any last minute contributions would go on the later report, not the one that was due yesterday. The purpose of these filings is so that the voting public will have a chance to see and digest the information BEFORE they go to vote.

Just what is it that Junior is wanting to hide? And why does Donner, that paragon of virtue and following the law when it comes to Republicans, let him off with this simple pass?

Don't bother answering the second question, we all know that one. But it would be interesting to know what it is that Jr doesn't want us to see.

A candidate should be removed from the ballot if they fail to comply with state campaign finance reporting laws. Oh where oh where are you, Clarion Ledger?

Donna is hooked in the gill again said...

Rich. Antar can't manage his Paypal account to report donations on time. But his skill set is perfect for managing the multi-million dollar Jackson budget and treasury, difficult infrastructure projects, complex bond financing and the Dept of Public Works. Very rich.

Why didn't Lumumba proactively issue an explanatory statement to the Jackson press corps yesterday instead of waiting for the JFP to carry his water today?

Blame someone else ... but only when you get caught.

John Horhn Campaign -- Disbursements

In November, 2016, Beatrice Slaughter received $1,000.00 (no address given).
She may be the same Beatrice who worked for the City of Jackson and she might be married to the man running for Ward 6 Council opening.

On the report filed this week, a Beatrice Louie received $10,000.00 from the John Horhn Campaign.

Are these disbursements to the same person?

A vote for Horhn is a vote for Lumumba..

Horhn is supported by Bennie Thompson and Barbara Blackmon neither live in jackson.. I smell another 90 million dollar robbery coming..

Anonymous said...

From what I hear, all the Beatric's mentioned are one person. What is Horhn trying to cover up in his disbursements?

Anonymous said...

All of Tony Yarber crew is working for Horhn.. Banks, Beatrice, Guss, same donors.. equal same results..

Anonymous said...

@11:21 You are wrong. If you mean Gus, the answer is an emphatic "no". If you mean Arron Banks, doubt it. Beatrice, definitely. Yarber has a much bigger "crew" than those 3.

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.
