Well well, well....... (Video included)

Courtney Ann Jackson of Fox40 covers the Canton/Nissan dispute. Check out the shots of Ed's cuffs. Oh, and guess who voted for the Nissan deal in the House and Senate in 2000. Hint: Look at pages 10 and 15 of the documents posted below.

So the City Attorney is Babs and now she has farmed this lawsuit out to Ed? Is that right?

Kingfish said...

You noticed that too?

bar complaint--please.

Man I've got to get my cuffs done like that.

I think there's a law somewhere that says you can't drive a Bentley unless you're wearing cuffs like that.

he is so ghetto and such an idiot, I guess he needs his full name on his cuff in case he forgets

If Jimmy the Hair can do it then the Blackmons want a piece of the action too.

Those cuffs are a prime example of what Faulkner
referred to as " The tragic burlesque of the sons of Ham "

Just unbelievable. Arrogance in it's finest form.

Definitely true. Money can buy things, but it's can't buy class.

George Jefferson and Fred Sanford couldn't even come up with a scheme like this one .

Watch Canton rot...and fyi Ed and his wife are not the first to use their authority to gain wealth at the expense of city government....Bob Montgomery made a mint screwing the city...and the beat goes on

A wise man recently said to me "The only thing that has changed about Canton politics is the color."

I'm going to say it, why as a professional association can NO ONE stand up? Is this a "we look the other way" because we are "in the club" and do not want to rock the boat?

It is shameful to read this and hear the tongue in cheek criticism (comments) without action from the very readers that write this sordid humor.

What is going on in Canton is beneficial to few (read..two) and denies the many the opportunity to grow this State's economic prowess.

When is any Conservative in this State going to stand up and say something? I know it is an election year, but this is just plain, plain, stupid.

Anonymous said...

10:42 What exactly do you expect Conservatives to do? Everyone knows Canton is a complete fiasco, but the leadership of Canton is duly elected (such as the integrity of their elections may be), and so they get to decide what policies they want to pursue (as awful as they may be).
Now, if you are referencing the Blackmons, I'm not a lawyer, nor am I an elected official. I don't know why Ed Blackmon can continue representing Canton in the Senate when it is not their primary residence and everyone knows it!

Anonymous said...

10:42, the same can be asked about Bennie Thompson. He's unbeatable, and he has gained tremendous wealth and power while leaving his constituents poor and powerless. The mindset in within the voters...until you change that, you can't change anything.

Micah Gober said...

George Jefferson and Fred Sanford would do right at the end...but thats tv. Now, in real life the bad guys wins and the good guys are losers. The City of Canton is a lost cause.

J. Kev said...

Some conservatives -- well I know of one of late -- have stood up and howled. The corruption and incompetnece in the city government and police force is astounding.

And they're blatant about it. Clarion Ledger doesn't care. You think Jim Hood wants to prosecute the base in a re-election year? Think Eric Holder's ready to drop indictments against black elected officials in the South?

A 1983 action, though, might shine some light.

Doesn't he also have his full name tattooed on his neck
or am I thinking of another "community leader" ?

The City of Canton should be so lucky as to have Bob Montgomery back as their attorney!

And, to address your negative remark - You must have gotten your false information from the leader of a City just south of Canton on Highway 51!

I asked about getting some of those cuffs at 
Kinkade’s and The Rogue .

After some weird glances between the staff, I was told the "Men's Suit Sale Discount Warehouse Tent " on West Capitol Street
might could handle my fashion request.

@3:11, not to chase a stray cat but didn't Bob run into some legal trouble about 5 years ago? Can't remember what the skuttlebut was about but am pretty sure it's why he's no longer the city's attorney.

J. Kev said...

Bob didn't run into trouble, but one of his law partners did.

Bob's problem that he was simultaneously attorney for (and I'm almost sure I have all this right): City of Canton; Madison County Board of Supervisors; Canton City Schools; Canton Municipal Utilities; and the Madison County Economic Development Authority.

There were dozens, if not hundreds, if legal transactions (land swaps/sales; inter-local agreements, etc) between two or more of those entities over a 20-year period, where Bob was counsel for both sides. Inherent conflicts, in other words, and (wait for it) NOBODY CARED.

He didn't gouge his govt. clients like the Blackmons do; he made up for it in volume.

True Blue R Girl said...

Speaking of stinky...Doesn't Barbara B. Also have a lobbying contract with Madison Co? Thanks KF for being the best reporter in MS!

Canton is so broke, but they continue to shell out money for the likes of the Blackmons and everyone else who are friends with the current administration and try the lame stunts like trying to annex Nissan. Look for a bond issue in the near future to generate more legal fees for someone and so they can spread more money around.

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. 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.
