The rest of the story.

The Clarion-Ledger reports:
"A Jackson contracting firm has filed a racial discrimination suit in federal court against Toyota, the governor and other state officials challenging how the bid process for the $1.3 billion project was handled.
Fish & Fisher of Jackson allege Toyota and the state officials "conspired to deny minority and/or disadvantaged businesses ... the same opportunity to bid on the Toyota Prius plant contracts by inviting only white-owned companies the privilege to bid on the general or tier one projects with Toyota and to make a profit," according to the complaint.
Fish & Fisher, which is owned by Jacqueline Williams and Renna Fisher, says it met the requirements to be general contractors for the site preparation work but were not asked to bid

Mr. Fisher is an expert on being stiffed as a quick check of the Hinds County judgement rolls reveals:
Rendition Date:12/09/2004
Satisfied Date: 02/19/2008

Enrolled Date: 12/25/2004
Book & Page: 496-0338
Amount: 24,689.00
It's Da Man's Fault

Meanwhile, there are a string of judgements for a Jacqueline Williams and a Jacqueline Andrews (The Secretary of State's website has her listed as Jacqueline Williams Andrews): Jacqueline Williams' judgements, Jacqueline Andrews' judgements. Since these judgements could belong to someone of the same name, the rest of this post will be addressed to Mr. Fisher:

If you want business Mr. Fisher, take care of your own business first. Companies like Toyota generally don't award contracts to deadbeats.

WOW! A corporate race card--how clever.

Fisher needs to get his bid-ness in order before he drops the race bomb.

Just a question, if the judgment is satisfied (i.e. paid) why is this person a deadbeat?

Why are you calling Ms Fisher a "Mr."?

It is Renna - pronounced "Re-nay'"

And if the judgment is satisfied, what is the problem? Many people are sued for money they do not think is owed or is in dispute, and even their insurance companies will tell them to not pay until it is adjudicated.

The Jacequeline Williams links don't show anything under that name.

Just search both names on the judgement rolls. Their was a Jacqueline Andrews who was a receptionist many moons ago at the Democratic Party, I wonder if its the same one. Funny how for the story she didn't use her real name. SOS docs she is Jacqueline Williams Andrews on everything yet for the story she didn't use the name Andrews. I wonder what the name is on the lawsuit.

Also what was curious was on the SOS website they have filed an intent to dissolve.

As far as judgements, yes, judgements happen all the time but in many industries, they check you out before the do business with you. You show up with judgements and bad credit, they'll refuse to use you as a client or vendor.

So lets review, one partner has a recent judgement that went unpaid for 4 years and was paid in the last year. Another partner possibly has a string of judgements against her and didn't give her full name to the reporter, there is an intent to dissolve on the SOS's website.

Sorry but my experience has been when you start seeing all these things put together, something smells.

Isn't there a candidate running for mayor that has been late paying their property taxes for 10 years? Thought I read that somewhere.

Looks like Fisher is a Mister to me in the photo. If its a she, then she needs to take some estrogen pills.

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.
