He's baaaaaaaaaaaack.

Rankin County Constable Tim Gardner resigned his position.  A special election will be held in November.  Guess who qualified for the election? Charles Lindsay.


Mr. Lindsay ran for Justice Court Judge in 2011.  JJ reported:

It seems we have a rat in the woodpile known as the Rankin County Justice Court District 2 election. Former Rankin County Constable Charles Lindsay, Junior is the candidate in question. Why do I write former? Because he was forced to resign after he tried to steal $28,000 from Rankin County.

The Clarion-Ledger reported on January 7, 2005 Mr. Lindsay resigned "after admitting he falsified court documents to obtain $28,000 in county funds." The wayward constable tried to bill the county for serving papers on people he never contacted or arrested. Mr. Lindsay entered a pre-trial diversion program and was placed on probation for five years. Then District Attorney David Clark stated "In order to do this, he had to sign a confession." However, there was one additional verse to this wretched song of public corruption: "Lindsay agreed never to run for public office again."

So the question must be asked: Why is this crook, and I do mean crook, running for office and why hasn't someone challenged his candidacy? He has no business sitting on the bench- period. What's next for him? Ticket-fixing? Judgments awarded to cute little honeys who come before him? Special deals with favorite lawyers? Apparently Mr. Lindsay got his record expunged after his probation expired. However, Mr. Lindsay still agreed not to run for office. Mr. Lindsay should not sit on any bench but one in the jailhouse, not the courthouse.
WLBT reported on his criminal past as well:

How about being a complete news outlet. Details....why did he quit?

Charles was successful getting a lot of yard signs in my neighborhood.
I took your columns regarding his guilty plea, had them copied and put on the door of every house where he had signs.
His yards signs disappeared over night!

Are you certain the election will be in November? Isn't it possible the Republican and Democratic parties will hold a special election June 3 (when party primaries are held for US Representative and Senate) to pick their nominees?  ( See § 23-15-833 and § 23-15-841. )

Just checking because we don't need to let this scoundrel win in June OR November.

Why did Tim Gardner resign and how can Lindsay not be remembered by most in Rankin County.

Kingfish said...

No mention of primaries. Becky Boyd, circuit clerk, is who told me the election will be in November.

Constables get $25 bucks every time they bring someone in front of a judge or serve papers.

Lindsay would send out letters to offenders and tell them if they did not show up for court he would arrest them at their office. He then would get $25 dollars for every letter he sent out. The problem is he sent the letters to all the back log over the past 8 years then. So stealing is a tough word to use here. He did not fulfill the requirements for hand delivering people before the judge. Thats the problem. If you look at the history here all 4 constables were guilty at the time. Lindsay had more reimbursements because more people live in district 4 at the time.

A better question to ask is:
He had his record expunged so does the new law about felonies and public servant misdeeds with money apply?

He will not be allowed to qualify this year!

To 2:47 PM,

The phrase "whitewashed" has been defined as "to prevent people from learning the truth about something bad, such as a dishonest, immoral, or illegal act or situation."

The version of the facts you present have been whitewashed (by Lindsay???).

Charles Lindsay had a conspiracy with one deputy court clerk. The conspiracy was: (1) a defendant with an arrest warrant appears to pay a fine to clear up the warrant; (2) the deputy clerk, at the request of Lindsay, would indicate that Lindsay arrested the defendant; (3) the defendant was charged the additional arrest fee; (4) Lindsay received the fee even though he had not arrested the defendant and had NEVER seen the defendant. 

The deputy clerk was removed and Lindsay was indicted and arrested for conspiracy to violate § 97-11-1 (Falsifying court documents).

The other constables DID NOT falsify court documents (lying under oath), but Lindsay DID falsify court documents (lying under oath).  The other constables DID NOT conspire with anyone to falsify court documents, but Lindsay DID conspire with a deputy court clerk to falsify court documents

Lindsay signed an agreement with the DA acknowledging that he had committed the crime, avoided jail time, and agreed to NEVER run for public office again.

How was he with law enforcement in the community? Does anyone know any information to share about that?

Does anyone know what his law enforcement record is? How was he on crime and being an officer?

You misunderstood the question...law enforcement...crime...helping the community? Does anyone know?

He was a criminal, admitted to being a criminal, admitted to falsifying documents.


would you thing he is capable of being in law enforcement.

This guy makes Robert Graham officer of the year.

kathleen cook said...

I just asked a question. What is the record on crime and law enforcement...community safety and service? I don't know the answer and thought somebody else might know.

According to the Weekly-Leader (part of Rankin County News), three people (Charles Lindsay, Fred Lovett, and Gary Windham) have qualified to run as Republicans in the JUNE 3 republican primary for the special election as constable. If any democrat qualifies, then the republican winner and democratic winner will compete Nov 4. Please don't let this criminal (Lindsay) win on JUNE 4 because Rankin County deserves better.

Anonymous said...

Kathleen cook - we understand the irrelevant and stupid question you keep repeating.

This crook was convicted of violating the public trust, specifically stealing public funds. He admitted it and, as part of his plea bargain, agreed never to run for any office ever again.

Anything else is meaningless BS, and we won't allow you to hijack this blog and distract everyone from the only relevant issue. Now scamper off.

kathleen cook said...

Why are you anonymous? I posted my name. I work in the law in the metro area...sometimes all night long...like tonight with people. I depend on our sheriffs and constables. All I did was ask a question...what is his record in crime and safety and law enforcement...you tell me to scamper off. I just asked a simple benign question. Now you peaked my interest by accusing me of hijacking your post...that is either because you can't answer the question because you don't know the answer or you don't want to answer it because you do know the answer. I asked an innocent question. What is the answer? I just asked a question...not an invitation for you to spill whatever your issue is...I asked a simple question I thought someone could answer that knew something about the issue I questioned...

Anonymous said...

It isn't that you asked a "simple benign question" but that after receiving no response you've continued to ask.

If you want to shill for Lindsay then by all means go ahead. The fact that you've commented here using a name has no bearing.

Are you new to JJ?

Anonymous said...

kathleen_cook - I answered your incessant question in the middle paragraph already. I can't help your reading comprehension problem.

Now shut up and scamper off.

How is his record with law enforcement? Well, I'd have to say it isn't good in that he has one. He admitted to a crime, was convicted and then his record was wiped clean after a certain amount of time had passed. Good on him for not getting into more trouble, which would've made his initial conviction stay on his record.

So, one more time. He has a record with law enforcement, along with every convict sitting in jail right now. How's that for experience?

Please go to the Chancery Court and review Gary Windham's $248,554.00 tax lien. He didn't file taxes in 98,99,2002,2003,2004,2005,2006.
Mr. Larry Swales can provide documentation

Also, check the facts before spouting information. The DA at the time was well known to push personal vendettas. Moreover, he was a documented prescription drug abuser.

Anonymous said...

That is true. In studying the election, I found that and also and other things and found that Lindsay was never prosecuted, never pleaded guilty, was never tried, and never convicted of anything. I kept seeing the "Former Convicted Constable" headlines...I actually emailed Marsha Thompson that the information was completely wrong and legally impossible and that the person interviewed said the charges were dismissed and dropped. They never responded and never took the story down.

Anonymous said...

Excuse me but your getting off course. I want to know more about the guy that doesn't have to
pay his taxes for almost a decade. Please tell me.

Anonymous said...

I was commenting that the previous post was true. I also found that information. But there is more. There is a family history in this opponent with Rankin County you are just not going to believe. When I started watching this election, all I saw was "Former Convicted Felon..." referring to Lindsay, who was never tried, prosecuted or convicted...never pleaded guilty according to his file, which file I got to see. There is a family history in one opponent that is true and is a history of abuse of Rankin County funds...felony convictions in a couple ways. It doesn't end with taxes. That is just one candidate.

I thought this guy was related to Dukes not Moss.

Are you studying this too? You seem to be. You already know the answer to your question if you know to ask the question. Obviously the answer is "both".

It's apparent you are a step or two ahead of me on the constable race. Just exactly what do you know about the candidates. The Tea Party has displaced any and all dialogue on other races.

Anonymous said...

Oh well.

Anonymous said...

There is definitely displaced dialogue in this race. There are a few individuals responsible for the mess we see and the control of information away from fact. Probably the biggest news in this race is what motivated that manipulation and the history behind the story...good old fashioned Rankin County history.

Anonymous said...

Why are the lawyers supporting Gary Windham? I reviewed his tax liens, and he in fact owes $240,000 +/- in back taxes.
Why does he want a public job? His wages will be garnished to satisfy tax liens!! I don't think a Constable would be able to satisfy the liens for at least 2 terms.
Just my two cents

Anonymous said...

Good question. I bet the gov't got their taxes off your 2 cents though. What lawyer wouldn't understand the difference between a felony conviction and a dismissal? One wonders what is really going on.

Anonymous said...

Would a lawyer know if it's illegal for a felon to possess firearms?

Anonymous said...

One would assume so. But we have no felon in this race. They are all OK to bear firearms as far as I can see...There are no felons on the actual ballot. My only question is does this felony ban on firearm possession extend to household family members of people who have to carry weapons in a line of work and keep weapons in the household? The lawyers you ask about probably know the answer to that question.

Six people have qualified as Republicans: Rodney Hale, Charles Lindsay, Fred Lovett, Sandy Sanders, Ken Steverson, and Gary Windham. The Republican primary will be held June 3, 2014. With 6 candidates I'm betting a runoff will be held June 24.

Anonymous said...

Six people have qualified as republicans...big deal...(I could qualify a chimp politically in Rankin by the so called politics we see in this race).How many candidates qualify as law enforcement? No matter what dirty games we have in a race like this...at the end of the day it is not a political position. It is a law enforcement position.

LAW ENFORCEMENT? INTERESTING THEN AS ONE OF THE CANDIDATES COULD POSSIBLY HAVE A PROBLEM WITH REGARD TO POSSESSION OF FIREARMS. YOU MIGHT WANT TO LOOK AT MDOC NUMBER 63505 AND THEN WORK YOUR WAY WEST YOUNG MAN.

I saw it a month ago. Why are they still bothering Lindsay, who was never even prosecuted, never pled guilty, was never tried or convicted.. when there is a federal tax lien and this bona fide felony file in regards to an opponent. Tell me why this story is so compelling about Rankin county and why the role of the press is so interesting.

Anonymous said...

I was actually told my information by voters I talked to in curiosity over a special election. All I did was verify what they told me about Windham, Ms. Faye and Ms. Windham and the IRS and what they report as to their support of Lindsay, who by the press seemed dirty on the surface. The voters admire Lindsay and admire Hale. That is Rankin County...they are a lot more astute than anyone understands. I suppose that is why they are studied as a demographic.

Anonymous said...

I checked the Chancery Court records in Rankin County. MR. GARY WINDHAM owes over $240,000 in unpaid taxes.
This is ridiculous for him to even contemplate being in a public position. I voted for him initially until I saw this website. He WILL NOT get my vote in the runoff.

Wow! This is true about Gary Windham. I will not vote for this man. I work everyday and pay my fair share of taxes. I will let everyone in Rankin County know about this!

Anonymous said...

People need to get their facts straight. Gary Windham does NOT OWE TAXES...surely you all know that any and/or all of what he and his family HAVE would have already been SEIZED. Also, paperwork thy delineates the mistakes made by the CPA but borne by Windham have not made their way to the Rankin County Chancery Courthouse. Wake up people. Lindsay is what he is and always has been--there is a HISTORY THERE TOO AND NOT JUST IN STEALING TAXPAYERS' money!!! Sick, sick, sick and should NEVER BE IN ANY TYPE OF PUBLIC OFFICE!!!! We have a fine facility located in Sunflower County, MS that is designed to address the needs of Charles Lindsay!!!

The Tax lien is public record. You callin a certified document from Larry Swales a liar? Nice try.

Anonymous said...

Hey, Kingfish...I don't know a Jackson, Rankin, or any CPA in the universe dumb enough to make a 240 something thousand dollar mistake. Nobody with any sense would run for election with that "mistake" not corrected.
It has just been released into national media that Ms. is #1 in corruption in government...You got people like this blogger blaming a CPA for 240 something in tax liens backed by the "group" in Rankin county. There is not a CPA that dumb in the whole state...I would hate to be Windham's CPA...now I am going to find and talk to his CPA. I bet the CPA disagrees.

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.
