Canton heats up today.

The action today is at Canton City Hall. The Clarion-Ledger reports:

"Whether Don Bates wins the Ward 2 alderman seat or meets Edward Thompson in a runoff March 27 will be settled when affidavit votes are counted today.

Three votes going Bates' way will bring him victory. To avoid a runoff, the top candidate must garner a majority of more than half the votes.

Bates was the top vote-getter with 271 after absentee votes were counted Tuesday night. Thompson garnered 102 votes after the unofficial tallies.

Others in the race were Johnny Lee Burse Jr. with 23 votes; Cal Bland Sr. with 10, and Natwassie Truly with 63.

Elections commission chairman Johnnie Rogers said the 78 affidavit ballots will be counted and certified this morning at Canton City Hall.
.." Article

Now for the rest of the story. Mr. Bates is the only white candidate in the race. It being Canton, Mayor Truly turned City Hall into a circus yesterday. He had Bates thrown out of City Hall. The District Attorney sent an investigator and the Secretary of State sent an employee to observe in the middle of the afternoon. The Attorney General sent a SID employee as well. Several sources said people who were not poll-workers and not caucasian were going through the poll books, writing down names, taking them out to the parking lot, and handing them off to people who would then leave. Its a pretty good guess they were not working for the Bates campaign.

Then there was the field trip from Canton Manor. Several sources said "care-givers" were bringing folks over from the nursing home who were clearly not in their right minds. The "care-givers" would vote for them, oops I meant assist them. What will be interesting today is the counting of the affidavit ballots. "Well you see, I now live here but I ussssssed to live over there". Yeah. The Mayor's wife needs to gain over forty votes to get into the runoff. This will be fun.

I think the population of Canton has come to realize that the town will not survive under the guidance of Richard Truly and his band of thugs. I also think Ed and Barbra Blackmon may be coming to grips with the same thing. Now that Ed does not have the amout of power he once had as representative he can no longer throw his weight around like hes been accustomed to.

Voter ID won't help Canton. It's really too far gone to help.

This is unbelievable. My mouth fell open at the running outside with names part. Then I got to the care giver votes. Just blows my mind. Hope SoS does something about this and hope its not just a press relesae. He should prosecute anyone found doing this kind of stuff.

As a business owner on the square, it is frustrating to see my property value keep going down. So many of us thought Nissan was going to be the golden goose for Canton. Its amazing how bad truly et al screwed up this gift. One would have to try really hard to screw up something as good as nissan could have been.

Shadowfax said...

That's a pretty broad generalization Mr. Gober. Not everyone in Canton is cut out of that cloth. Many are, agreed, but not all.

Absolutely no mention of this on WLBT 5 o'clock news. Almost as bad as Clarion-Ledger. IMHO, it should have been the lead story.

Shadowfoxes - Delbert is very good at making campaign commercials under the guise of public service announcements. You forgot this.

Micah Gober said...

I know Shadowfax, I use to live in Canton, but the shooting, and stuff being stolen force my family to move to Madison in 1996. I still have other family members, and friends up there. I know they are upset with the city.

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.

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.
