Doug Anderson backs disgraced judge as his replacment.

Doug Anderson's daughter said he will support Joe Lewis as his replacement on the Hinds County Board of Supervisors. The same Joe Lewis who was removed from the bench in 2005 by the Mississippi Supreme Court for making inappropriate advances towards several women. Jackie Anderson Woods made the statement during a press conference announcing Mr. Anderson's resignation.

Just one small, little problem. The Mississippi Supreme Court kicked Mr. Lewis off the bench in 2005 after the Commission on Judicial Performance recommended his removal. The Commission took this action after issuing two reprimands. The Court ruled Mr. Lewis never paid his fines associated with the reprimands (Hint to judges: Never a good idea to blow off the Mississippi Supreme Court when they discipline you as you never know when you might be in front of the court again.) involving Mr. Lewis's sexual harassment of women at the courthouse. The Court stated Mr. Lewis made improper sexual advances towards women that were unwelcome, undesired, and unwanted. Two specific incidents were cited in the opinion:

*One women came to the courthouse to obtain relief after her wages were garnished even though the debt was satisfied. The Court said

"When she went to the Courthouse, in hopes of finding an explanation for what she felt was unjust, she came into contact with Judge Lewis, whom she had never met before this specific instance. Once Doe entered Judge Lewis’ office so that they could discuss her case, he made several inappropriate sexual advances, all of which she refused. Some of these sexual advances included his suggestion that they go to a private, secluded area in the courthouse. Judge Lewis began their conversation by describing in sexually explicit detail an encounter with another woman. Judge Lewis denied this account. No other witnesses were privy to the conversation. Judge Lewis informed Doe that he would help her and explained that all he had to do was get her back to court to stop the garnishment..... Judge Lewis also called Doe by telephone at her home, continuing to assure her that he was “helping” her or working on a resolution for her case." (p.3)

*"Rhonda Roe, a fictitious name, the second complainant, filed a civil action in Judge
Lewis’ court which involved another woman stalking her. Roe had never met Judge Lewis prior
to filing this civil action. Judge Lewis had numerous ex parte communications with Roe, in
person and by phone, and made sexual advances toward Roe while in his office during one of
those meetings. Judge Lewis began the sexual conversation with Roe, commented on how
attractive Roe was and said that he was interested in her. Judge Lewis further noted how pretty her hair was and how her ex-boyfriend was going to be sorry for leaving her. He thus told Roe that he wanted to come by her house to see the damage that the defendant in her case had done to her car. Roe testified that Judge Lewis did come by her house, but she did not open the door. Again, Judge Lewis denied the allegations, and there were no other witnesses. When asked if Judge Lewis initiated the phone calls, Roe stated “I can’t remember, but whenever we would–we would talk on the phone, it was always–it was hardly ever about my case. Always pertaining to him and getting with him.” Judge Lewis improperly dismissed Roe’s default judgment and proceeded with the hearing of a counter-suit against Roe after numerous ex parte communications with both parties.
" (p.4)

The Court said although there were no other witnesses to these incidents, it was also highly unlikely three different women who did not know each other all filed similar complaints against the Joe Lewis. The Court dismissed the complaint from the third woman but still said

"As the Commission noted, we agree that it is more than mere coincidence that three different women, who are perfect strangers to each other, have made sexual misconduct allegations against the same individual which allegedly occurred on different occasions, during different times of the year, and even in different years."

It should also be noted the Court cited an earlier private reprimand against Mr. Lewis and stated the wayward judge did not pay his fines, did not accept his reprimands, and publicly lied about his reprimands. The Court said "Prior disciplinary proceedings and sanctions have had no effect on Judge Lewis."

What 'nomination' are you talking about in both of your posts? It's simply an endorsement which is nothing more than axing people who like you to support somebody you like.

If this Lewis fellow is sufficiently crooked, he will provide excellent balance with the other clowns on the Board. Stokes, Graham and Lewis. Kingfish is gonna have a new heyday.

Everyone should rest easy. Lieutenant Robert Graham of the Jackson Police Department will make sure the integrity of the board is maintained.

Forget the supervisors lets get an election together for this important post.

are there any nuts from the Stokes family tree living in the district? voters should obviously look to Hinds county's royal family first.

That's all we need is for The Stokes Twins to become The Stokes Triplets.

Doug continues the war on women by backing this disgraced goob.

I'll be happy as long as voters do the right thing by electing the most corrupt race hustler available.

This is an opportunity! There are certainly more people running than Joe Lewis.

The BIG question is: Who will the current Board decide to become Interim Supervisor, thus making he/she an incumbent in November?

The people currently considering running for this position are: Mary Coleman, State Representative; Joe Lewis; Alberta Gibson, Aflac Rep.; and Gus McCoy.
Gus McCoy would be my choice because of his years with Entergy, his serving the NAACP, his Church involvement, and his love of Jackson and Hinds County. He is young, smart, and would bring a whole new energy to the Board.

"War on women"?

You are an idiot.

Shadowfax said...

Gus McCoy would be a great selection.

If I am not mistaken, and I certainly could be, Joe Lewis might not be eligible to hold elective office. I can't recall if that stipulation was included as a result of the offenses against women which led to his removal from the Office of Hinds County Justice Court Judge.

Problem is that Guy McCoy isn't corrupt enough.

JPD Lieutenant Graham won't support anyone for the interim role unless they are as corrupt, or more corrupt, than he is.

Ain't no way in hell that the Lieutenant is going to put someone of integrity in there who would potentially vote with Fisher and Calhoun to do the right thing for HindCo.

Only way McCoy gets in will be via the special election. Ain't no way in hell

David Archie will be Supervisor!

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.
