Bennett Malone dies

State Representative Tom Miles (D-Chicken Coop)  posted the following message on Facebook:

My heart is saddened this morning to hear of the passing of my friend, the Gentleman from Leake County, Representative Bennett Malone. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and many friends. Representative Malone served the people of Leake, Neshoba, Scott, & Rankin Counties for over 36 years in the Mississippi House of Representatives. Representative Malone will always be remembered as a true public servant that loved his constituents that he served, his love for rural Mississippi, and always being someone that wasn’t afraid to stand up for the little man. Representative Malone thank you for your friendship, service to our State and leadership over the years for Rural Mississippi. You will truly be missed.

While he did indeed 'stand up for the little man', he also stood up and greased the wheels with Epps so his wife could gain a bit of contracted-wealth from DOC. Didn't Malone resign the day after Epps was indicted? And he thought it was smart to put all that stuff in his wife's name. For that reason alone, he didn't die in jail.

This will be interesting given the fact that during earlier conversations regarding her sentencing it was claimed that she had to 'see about' Bennett in his declining health and couldn't do that in a federal jail cell.

OK - Now, in 3..2..1.. we can hear from those who will admonish us to all set aside differences and mourn the man's passing and the usual one who says, "Good God, you people, a man has died....!"

Crooked, retired 'public servants' die every day.

His poor health is the only reason he wasn't prosecuted. He has been expected to die for a couple of years.

If he could show up for work in Jackson every day (prior to Epps arrest),he could have survived in jail. At minimum, his guilt should have been pursued and determined.

By comparison, consider the prosecution of Beckwith, whose outcome is still considered by many to have been a rush to judgment and a population enamored of finding a scapegoat.

But, back to Bennett.

Rob Smith also passed.

His wife Teresa also has had serious health problems including a double lung transplant, I think. She can be sentenced to up to 30 years but I'll bet she get a light sentence.

It is certainly ironic that Rob Smith, one of the cleanest and most decent legislators in MS history, died on the same day.

Teresa was the brains behind Bennett!

Well said 6:58 - Crooked politicians rarely go after other crooked politicians like they do your run of the mill thief. I take no pleasure in reading about the failings of others, including politicians, but also can't stand those who say "he/she was such a good man". While this person may have been a good man if he broke the law he should have been held accountable.

Seems about right that Miles would post something on Facebook. Was Hughes not available?

9:35, that is too funny, am laughing out loud and am alone (that is when you know something is really funny)
Am sure Miles will carry on “for the little man” - ha!

"I knew it was only a matter of time before one of you jackasses defended Beckwith."

Dear Dumbass: That was no defense of Beckwith. Only a comparison of how quickly we go after the low hanging fruit and how often we ignore the uber-guilty and find a reason to not prosecute such as: "Oh he's really sick" or "Well, he's resigned now so let him go in peace" or "He served his constituents well and he can do no harm in retirement". or "Well, none of that stuff actually had his prints on it".

If Malone didn't lie to Jeff Smith, Smith would have been elected Speaker in 2007.

What exactly is "Public Service"? Why do politicians congratulate themselves on their years of Public Service?

They are paid by the people they serve to do the job of the office they ran for. They are not volunteering or working for the "little man" out of charity. Most times the laws or regulations they enact don't do a damn bit of good toward helping anyone but politicians or corporations. More often than not politicians seek office for power or perceived prestige. They often are not all that qualified to work outside of government yet make it sound as though they turned down high paying jobs in the name of service. They use other peoples money (taxpayers) to fund projects that they quickly take credit for. They name ballparks and buildings after themselves simply because they used others money to fund such things.

It is laughable how seriously many politicians take themselves. Believing that they are somehow giving up much to serve their fellow man. Many leave office far wealthier than when they entered.

So while politicians serve a vital role in our society they are not what I would consider a public servant. Red cross volunteers are public servants. Politicians are simply paid government employees who don't always follow the same rules they set for the rest of us.

Malone was crooked before Epps ever assumed the lead role at DOC. Look up the word crooked and you'll see pictures of Malone and The Worm Farmer.

And if Smith were Speaker,it would not make one damn bit of difference in the disfunction that is otherwise known as the House.

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.

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.
