Voter Fraud & Vote-Buying in Canton

Update: Attorney Ed Blackmon is representing McNeil.

It's going down in Canton this morning.  Several Canton officials have been indicted and arrested for voter fraud.   Madison County deputies served indictments and arrested the following individuals:

Former Canton Police Chief and Alderwoman Vicki McNeil
Sherman Matlock (Convicted Felon)
Donnell Robinson  (Convicted Felon)
Jennifer Robinson
Deputy City Clerk Desma King
Canton School Board Member Courtney Rainey

Ms. Rainey was also indicted for intimidating a witness. 





*Sherman Matlock was convicted of manslaughter.  He submitted an absentee ballot even though he is not eligible to vote.  The grand jury indicted him for voter fraud and voting by an unqualified person.

*Canton Alderwoman Vicki McNeil was indicted for two counts of voter fraud.  She is the former Canton police chief.   She helped Stephanie Dallas and Robert Jefferson  submit absentee ballots.  The indictment alleges McNeil did so while a candidate for municipal office.

*Deputy Canton City Clerk Desma King helped Donnell Robinson submit an absentee ballot when she knew he was ineligible to vote.

*15 counts landed on Canton School Board member Courtney Rainey. She allegedly paid Emma Ousley to vote in the Canton municipal elections last year.  She tried to get Ousley to "change her story" so she would not get caught.  Another indictment charges her with giving a Walmart gift card to Louvenia Brown in exchange for her vote in the same election.  She also paid her through the use of "flood relief" for her vote.  The indictment charges her with conspiring with Andrew Grant to commit voter fraud.

The indictment alleges Rainey voted in several Canton municipal elections even though she didn't live in Canton.  She helped Donnell Robinson vote in the 2017 elections even though she knew he did not live in Canton.  Another count charges her with paying Marvin Cain, Montel Hardy,  to vote in the same election.

*Donnell and Jennifer Robinson were charged with submitting absentee ballots for the 2017 Canton Municipal elections even though they did not live in Canton.

Stay tuned.  The Street Committee says there is a second round of indictments on the way.

Interesting that neither the local "newspaper" nor any of the television stations are reporting this. Kingfish grabs another story right out from under them. Good work KF!!

I live in Canton. It is probably the most corrupt town in Mississippi! All democratic votes! Nothing ever changes!

Going by the clarion ledger article, it seems they are saying that almost 10 votes may have been fraudulent. This is exactly why Trump lost the popular election. If there are 10 votes in this one district, just imagine how many there were across the state, it could be in the dozens. I guess it may be overshadowed by the republican voter fraud in North Carolina since those were much larger numbers and actually changed the election result, but these few votes in a primarily black district should be enough for Trump to prove he was right all along and allow the republicans to pass more stringent requirement before allowing just anyone to vote.

10:10 AM - use of the Oxford comma, as you insist, is generally not used in writing, particularly in the US. It is generally a redundancy since you already have the separator with "and" in place.

Someone should have told these folks that if they are going to (allegedly) participate in voter fraud, they should do it in Jackson, where it is an accepted practice.

Per the Mississippi Supreme Court website as of today's date, the MISSISSIPPI CONSTITUTION ARTICLE 12, SECTION 241. STATES:
"Every inhabitant of this state, except idiots and insane persons, who is a citizen of the United States of America, eighteen (18) years old and upward, who has been a resident of this state for one (1) year, and for one (1) year in the county in which he offers to vote, and for six (6) months in the election precinct or in the incorporated city or town in which he offers to vote, and who is duly registered as provided in this article, and who has never been convicted of murder, rape, bribery, theft, arson, obtaining money or goods under false pretense, perjury, forgery, embezzlement or bigamy, is declared to be a qualified elector, except that he shall be qualified to vote for President and Vice President of the United States if he meets the requirements established by Congress therefor and is otherwise a qualified elector."

As I read the indictment, the stated reason is not that he took money to vote but that he registered to vote with a manslaughter conviction.

How in the hell is a person convicted of manslaughter disenfranchised under this Constitutional provision based upon the four corners of the page.

And more importantly, how would a person convicted of manslaughter be on notice that he cannot vote under this constitutional provision.

This indictment is prosecutorial misconduct and a legal impossibility given the wording of the constitution.

His lawyer needs to move for dismissal based upon legal insufficiency and then file a IIED lawsuit against the foreman of the grand jury that issued this sh*t.

Ah, America where you can be sent to prison for trying to vote with a prior conviction, but if you have enough money, you can be President/Senator/Congressman regardless of how many laws you've broken. And this goes for both sides of the aisle.

This is Canton. No one is going to be convicted and not going anywhere. The race card is already in the pipe line, the NCAAP is mobilizing forces and buckets of chicken and bottles of beer being ordered.

You gotta love Mississippi. It's the ultimate irony. A state where officials from the governor to the dog catcher committed the ultimate voter fraud for over one hundred years, and nobody went to jail says, "I told you so" for a handful of jokers who might have committed voter fraud in a couple of elections. The shoe's on the other foot, only this time it's a black foot. We won't tolerate that.

Difficult for voters to have their votes count when votes are purchased. Every vote is important and every voting law must be seriously protected or anarchy will prevail.

Anonymous said...

1057, you need to go back and finish law school. After the first three weeks of your first year, which appears to be whereyou dropped out, they teach you that there is more to our laws and legal system than just the Constitution. There are things like statutes, AG opinions related to interpretations of those statutes and the constitution, and precedent from the courts.

Your quoting of the Constitution is nice, and we really appreciate it. But next time get the 'Rest of the Story'. There are 21 disenfranchising crimes today (including the 11 in your Constitutional reference) in MS, and manslaughter is defiantly one of them. And felons are made aware of this at their sentencing and during their incarceration. Also, it is included as a question on their application to register to vote.

Go by to your fryer now, lesson from week four of 1L is over.

ED AND BARBARA DONT LIVE IN CANTON WHERE THEY VOTED AND ARE ELECTED FROM!

12:15, glad you mentioned those nooses. I really want to know who did them. Security cameras anywhere?

As to conspiracy to fraudulently cast votes, nothing makes me angrier. Every time this occurs, it dilutes my vote. Every illegal immigrant or non-citizen who votes, dilutes my vote. Many fought and died so I could vote. I honor their sacrifice and deplore those who manipulate the vote. Prosecution is the beginning of an answer to stopping this practice.

That's not settled science. You're a believer in the Oxford comma. Many people are not. The late Charles Krauthammer, in his last book, noted that "commas are destroying the world." (I think it was in the introduction.)

On to the merits of the news, good on Bryan Buckley. Of all the ADAs in the Canton branch, Bryan's been on the scent of voter fraud in the city of Canton for a while now. Glad to see this will come to fruition.

LOL, @8:39!! Agreed:)

Actually, 7:42, that Matlock guy up there can't vote SPECIFICALLY because of a Nazitastic felony disenfranchisement law that Mississippi bigots dreamed up in 1890 to keep "certain people" from voting.
Them's the facts.

Kingfish - Have you been paying attention the past fifty years? There is no way to separate voter intimidation, vote buying, election tampering, arguments over voter ID, Delbert's efforts and previous arrests and convictions from RACE. All of those tie in directly with Mississippi's race-history. How in the world can you suggest otherwise?

Anonymous said...

Doesn't make a difference? Evidently you haven't been watching Canton City elections lately. Rodriguez Brown (yes, Brown, nephew of the infamous Ike Brown who along with the rest of his family were actively involved in the elections) won his city alderman race 10 years ago by two votes; four years later by four votes; then in 2017 by twenty-one votes. And the amount of voter fraud involved in that one ward exceeds all of the charges that have been indicted thus far. Its a target rich environment.

I found the answer to my question. McNiel (allegedly) committed a crime when she 'helped someone vote absentee' BECAUSE McNIEL WAS A CANDIDATE ON THE BALLOT and that is a crime.

I'm pretty damned sure if she 'helped' one, she helped 80.

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. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
