Uh-oh.

It appears a lobbyist got a case of the stupid before the Gulf Coast legislative reception last week.  The annual reception is one of the larger parties held each year for legislators during the session. Harrison County Supervisor Beverly Martin posted this message on her Facebook page yesterday:


So, I'm in Jackson, lobbying for the BP money to come to the coast....and a well known lobbyist comes up to to me and says..."s...my...dk..." i'm like what??????? so about that time, Supervisor Kent Jones is there...and I called him out..

"tell supervisor Jones what you just said to me".... he tells him he said "I want a BJ"....what!!!??? Yep...that is what he said...sugar coated...so to speak. This is how our State treats women!@ What the Hell???
 WLOX reported:

 Martin confirms to WLOX News Now that the incident happened on Tuesday night before the Gulf Coast Legislative Reception in Jackson and that she knew the lobbyist before the incident.

Martin made this statement Saturday night “There’s a lot more to the story than what’s out in the public. I’m all about transparency, so we should just put it out there.” Rest of article.
Ouch.

I'm glad someone is calling a halt to this crap at the Legislature. Women have put up with this in our Capitol for far too many, many years. It is inexcusable. It needs to stop immediately. When it continues it needs to be called out just as this courageous Supervisor did. Sunlight on the subject is clearly the best disinfectant here. Let the sunlight shine on!!!!

KF who does/did he represent?

The silver bullet of "calling out". LMAO

Is anyone is surprised by this? Most of the lobbyists, legislators and hangers-on surrounding the political process will screw, jerk, and suck their way to get their desired result, or demand same. I'm glad to see Martin call this bullshit out.

"That lobbyist, Scott Levanway, has come forward and taken responsibility for the exchange.

In a statement sent to WLOX News Now, Levanway apologized for his behavior, saying the comments were out of character."

Out of character, huh; maybe because someone finally called you out. Likely excuse...nice try Scott...by the way, I hear Harvey Weinstein is giving a course on how to handle these type of situations.

Saying this is "out of character" is not much of an apology.

Maybe Levanway can go back to representing bingo clients in front of the gaming commission, this kind of shit sounds like something they'll tolerate

Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, Scott.

At least she isn't waiting for 5 to 10 years to go by before she putting it out there. Good for her.......

Martin's husband used to be a commercial fisherman in Alaska, Scott's lucky he didn't get his ass kicked.

"And I will redouble my life-long commitment to respecting women and behaving in a way that reflects my true values"

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot does that even mean? Who does he lobby for? I'm assuming no one special using that kind of verbiage. Possibly no one as of this morning. Only creepers and D-bags use that phrase directly.

Terrible action by Scott. And yes it has been going on for too long. Some of the most successful lobbyists got their start in this very manner, not words but actions - so better be careful about thinking this lewd behavior is a one way street.

Ahh, Internet shaming. Very brave, Mrs. Burkholder. I mean, "Ms. Martin." Welcome to the #MeToo club!

To be clear, his remark was totally inappropriate, particularly in that context. It was crass, and there's no excuse for it. But her response was disproportionate to the offense.

What?

Wonder if this was the first time a sexual exchange took place between these two? Levanway's remark isn't exactly one that would be made to a stranger, or even one that would be made in jest unless there was some history there.

Scott has been a douche for the 30 years I've known him, cannot believe he is still around. And shame on your comments accusing her of anything; he was probably just drunk again.

7:55 If Mississippi get "two" flags then the Mississippi elite win once again in further dividing and confusing the citizenry. Where is the leadership? Crickets. The state is devolving before our very eyes back to shouting the "Never!" battle cry that permeates from the rebel attitude. No remorse, do shame, no reconciliation, no integration, no cooperation. No progress, and last in everything. Sigh.

I wish every single prostitute, uh, I mean LOBBYIST, would come forward and tell their #metoo story. The MS Capitol, legislature, and lobbyists are full of this type of behavior. Remember the lobbyist that was the long-time girlfriend to the high ranking married legislator? If you know the legislature, you’re thinking, be more specific, which one? My point exactly. Remember the other high ranking legislator that was driving drunk, but got off because of the “cough syrup” defense? Remember....I could go on for days. Our MS Legislature and all statewide elected officials need a big ole enema and flush. They are ALL disgusting.

All this shows the low class of people involved with the legislature....I am 75 and have watched this kind of unprofessional conduct go on for most of my live and before. It is the same in Washington except more money changes hands. I don't think anyone ever expects perfection but everyone needs to shoot for perfection. WOW, what a classy bunch of Bastards !!!!!!

LOCK UP YOUR DAUGHTERS---THE LEGISLATORS ARE IN TOWN !!!!!

According to the C-L, his clients include the cities of Gulfport, Biloxi, Jackson and Madison, the Gulf Coast Business Council, Port of Gulfport, Silver Slipper casino, Pinnacle Entertainment and the Girl Scouts of Greater Mississippi.

Hopefully by the end of the week, that number will be greatly reduced. I certainly can't see the Girl Scouts and Queen Mary keeping such a "slime bag" as their lobbyist.

@8:50 If you have females in your life, ask how they've answered this question when they've been asked the same thing. Or how would YOU respond if requested to do the same on this lobbyist.I don't think you'd be as judgmentally cavalier if you truly understood that lots of women have had this type of treatment throughout of their lives but are expected to laugh it off in the name of being a polite lady. But I promise, we don't forget and it becomes part of the reel that plays in our heads when we see you later on. We don't forget....ever

The Mississippi legislature is such a joke. I've lived in Mississippi for over 30 years and every year those idiots don't accomplish a damn thing besides wasting tax payers dollars and passing some kind of legislation to legalize some form of discrimination, and come up with a way to repeal someone's rights, unless it's dealing with a lethal weapon.

If they focused on healthcare, infrastructure, education, and employment - people with reasonable levels of intelligence would actually respect them.

But that's why the want to keep the citizenry ignorant, so they can stay in power.

I’m pretty sure his days of lobbying for the Girl Scouts is now over

Speaking of dirt bags, I heard Claiborne(sp?) Fraser was released from prison recently. Truth?

Apologies for my profanity, but you started it said...

Mr. Levanway, you are so full of shit, and your apology is a feeble, self-serving attempt to preserve your shrinking client list. And by the way, which efforts are you redoubling, what is your track record and what are your true values. You are a useless fucking windbag, and everything that is wrong with entitled influence peddling in our political system.

I wonder how offended Mrs. Martin would be if she found out what was spent on the "reception" for her and the other legislatures. I wonder if she would get her panties in a wad if the taxpayers cut her perks and "goodies"?????

"Prison to Be Construction Family Affair

Thursday, May 1, 2014


The Fraziers, owners of C.E. Frazier Construction Co. Inc. and a variety of long-troubled spinoffs, are all going to jail.

H. Claiborne Frazier; his brother, Austin W. Frazier; and their father, Cresco Elmore (C.E.) Frazier Jr., all formerly of Jackson, MS, have all been sentenced to several years in federal prison and ordered to pay restitution for a scheme that defrauded lenders of millions of dollars over nearly a decade.

Can't find Claiborne at the federal BOP inmate locator website.

Daddy Frazier released July 2016 according to BOP inmate locator:

CRESCO ELMORE FRAZIER
Register Number: 16984-043
Age: 70
Race: White
Sex: Male
Released On: 07/18/2016

Austin Frazier released December 2016 according to BOP locator:

AUSTIN W FRAZIER
Register Number: 16983-043
Age: 43
Race: White
Sex: Male
Released On: 12/30/2016

Wow that was tough 18 months but I guess they learned their lesson. Another successfull rehabilitation (tongue in cheek)

Hey hey

It turns out H Claiborne Frazier might still be in custody at Pensacola Federal Prison Camp.

"H CLAIBORNE FRAZIER
Register Number: 16981-043
Age: 45
Race: White
Sex: Male
Located at: Pensacola FPC
Release Date: 11/16/2018"



Wiki says about FPC Pensacola:
In 2006, the Bureau of Prisons decided to cut costs by closing the Federal Prison Camp, Eglin, which was located at Auxiliary Field 6, Eglin Air Force Base, in Okaloosa County, Florida, and moving the inmates to FPC Pensacola.[2] In July 2009, Forbes magazine listed the prison as the number two "cushiest prison" in the United States.[3]

For some reason the federal inmate locator does not work with H Claiborne's name, but thanks to KF posting a document(http://kingfish1935.blogspot.com/2017/04/claiborne-strikes-out-again.html) with his BOP Register number he is located.

He'd better take care to avoid injuring himself on the tennis courts or playing beach volley ball or golf.

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.
