Election law violations:

1) Campaigning within a polling place
2) Not exiting polling place after voting; visiting with voters
3) Campaigning within 150 feet of a polling place

Misquoting of election law:

1) Voter ID requirement: Can use an old student ID

Who's counting? Hell, KF - don't you know that the rules don't apply to the Dems? Especially to members of the Black Caucus - they get a pass on any such rules. They don't need any stinking badges, or rules.

Filming in a precinct? Um yes that would be a violation. Campaigning in a polling place? Yes again.

Jesus Christ... this woman is a total idiot! First off you must have a current drivers licence not am expired licence unless you are over age of 65. 2nd mistake she made was filming inside. How does she not understand this? She should be disqualified for being this incompetent. Looks like Maxine waters to me from the footage.

Thank god she won’t win said...

Violation of the cra cra law

In this day of HD and 4k video phones, how in the heck did she shoot a 4:3 SD video?

On the other hand, I support special needs individuals being allowed to run for office.

She's been held back her entire life - hence no rules apply - don't we understand!!!????!!!

So this person who has poor grammatical skills and openly flaunts election laws wants to make laws that she presumable will ignore.

Who has talked about eliminating Medicaid?

I don't gamble but I'll gladly bet that she won't be held accountable to this breach of law.

Primaries are governed by the parties. Unless the D party wants to pursue it, then it didn't happen.

The best part is the bra adjustment at 3:13. Probably checking her money roll

Are you kidding me ! Amazed at the Stokes level of incompetence running in our elections. Waiting to see what comes of these violations.

If she were white, it would be a violation

WAIT, WHERE WAS THE VOTER INTIMIDATION FROM HAVING TO SHOW YOUR ID AT THE POLLS? SHE SHOWED HER ID WAS NOT HARASSED AND WAS NOT TURNED AWAY. WAIT THAT DOES NOT FIT THE DEMOCRATIC MONTRA.

EXPOSED, DAMN LIARS! IF A DEM IS MOVING THEIR LIPS THEY ARE LYING KINGFISH.

702, no, according to Dilbert's convoluted rules, your drivers license can be expired if it was issued less than ten years ago. And there is no MS law against filming in a polling place. Folks do it all the time -particularly when elected officias go to vote. There was a DOJ Civil Rights rule about cameras in polling places, but there is no such law. But, it obviously depends on who you are about how DOJ might treat a voter who tries it.

Well this lady got her ass handed to her thankfully... although I do find it refreshing to see more and more black candidates running each and every year. I'm bow 68 years old and this didn't happen when I was younger. I'm happy knowing blacks are standing up to this day looking for fair equal treatment they have yet to receive. Let's push it toward Mississippi.

KF, how in the world could an Election Law violation.....she's a DIM-O-KRAT, so everyone knows that there is no way any election laws COULD or WOULD be violated. If you have any doubts, just ask the Benghazi Beast's election team on how they broke nearly all the rules then get upset when they're called on it (Huma Abedin, John Podesta and of course Debbie Wasserman Schultz the biggest loser & liar of all)!!!!!!

Meanwhile, a voter in West Point says that only Wicker's name was on her ballot.

This woman makes Kenneth Stokes look like a Rhodes scholar. Omeria Scott is without a doubt the biggest idiot in the State of Mississippi. In 2015, she took Tim Johnson’s campaign, a campaign that was already a joke, and turned it into a bigger joke.

Voters say a lot of incorrect crap. Let's see if that voter was correct - since the ballots are created by the statewide system and downloaded to the counties, I would bet that voter is mistaken.

Easy to find out though, if someone puts faith in the report.

Acceptable Photo ID per SOS:
Driver’s license;
Photo ID card issued by any branch, department, agency, or entity of the State of Mississippi;
United States passport;
Employee photo ID card issued by any branch, department, agency, or entity of the U.S. government;
License to carry a pistol or revolver;
Tribal photo ID card;
Student ID card, issued by any accredited college, university or community or junior college in the State of Mississippi;
Mississippi Voter ID card;
Any photo ID issued by any branch, department, agency, or entity of the U.S. government or any state government, such as a driver’s license issued by a state other than Mississippi.

Must be current (no expiration date or was issued no more than 10 years prior to the date presented at precinct) and valid (not a forgery or fake).

With that being said, I'm all for Voter ID, but coming from a registered voter who was found on the poll book in my precinct yesterday, then presented an acceptable form of photo ID according to SOS standards(a DL with my former address on it - I have not had the chance to get an updated DL since moving, however, my voter registration has been updated), I was only permitted to vote a regular ballot after arguing with the election official at the table for 20 minutes(as she was trying to get me to vote by affidavit). I know it is a long day for little pay but these poll workers need to be better trained on the election procedures, especially Voter ID! Not that the turnout was high but there is no telling how many people she may have disenfranchised or forced to vote by affidavit because she was not up to speed on voter ID. She should have only been scrutinizing the photo and name on the ID if the voter was found in the poll book - not the address unless the voter was not found in the poll book and needed to be sent to the proper precinct they vote / reside in.

I guess I need to go get my DL updated by the runoff. SMH.

3:52 - great story. And since you are so up to date (not 100% accurate, but doing pretty good) on this one particular aspect of running an election at a voting precinct - why don't you volunteer to be a poll worker at the next election. I am sure either party would be glad to use your services, and will let you come to the 2 hour training class where you have to learn the 150 other rules and laws that you have to know to efficiently and correctly conduct the election.

And I did use the term 'volunteer', an incorrect verb. You do get paid - $120 (including your attendance at the training class) for being at your polling place at 6 a.m. and staying until around 8 at night. Thus, my use of the verb "volunteer", because I'm sure you wouldn't be doing it for the great hourly rate of pay.

Serious - you have the Voter ID rules down fairly well. Won't take long to learn the rules regarding voter assistance, curbside voting, challenged ballots, the dozen or so items to check on absentee ballots, etc. that one has to be able to handle.

6:49 PM, and how do you know I did not serve as a poll worker on election day? I am very well up to speed on all elections laws, primarily all of the election day procedures you speak of. It is unfortunate that others did not receive adequate training, which in the end may have cost a qualified voter their vote because of confusion. I was merely sharing my experience in the hopes that someone could learn from it. Now, if you will please point out where I am not 100% accurate... if you are going to say to me that a poll worker should be heavily scrutinizing the ID to make sure everything lines up perfectly (matching address, exact name to what is on poll book, etc.) and not letting a voter vote or forcing them to vote by affidavit based off of that alone you would be 110% incorrect and probably need to contact Gilbert's office so they can clear that up for you.

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.

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.
