Never say the Democrat don't know how to have a good time with an election.  Posted below is a letter that was sent to the Mississippi Democratic Party Executive Committee.   It appears the residency of a Senatorial candidate might be in dispute.

Gave $5k to Wicker and then decides to run against him? More money than sense.

Sam Baria ... I mean, Sam Begley, appears to be running interference for someone.

"No candidate shall be certified to run in a Democratic Primary for any office...who has within the preceding four years publicly or financially supported the election to office of any person not running as a Democrat"

Seems pretty straightforward to me. He shouldn't be eligible based on his contribution to Roger Wicker. Case closed.

If Republicans would be more unified like the democrats then we would have Jim Hood and might be able to get things done in Washinton. Instead, they turn to pansies and actually think they are representing all the people.

Sam Bagman Bagley must have done this during one of his nighttime rants. As a lawywr, he decides to ignore all law.

First, there is no provision in law for disqualifying a candidate because of a PARTY'S rules or by-laws. Thus has been tried by the MS Democrats before and has been completely shot down by the MS Supreme Court. The ONLY reasons a candidate can be disqualified is for not meeting the requirements of STATE LAW. Aparty's rules cannot add requirements.

Second, an individual can easily have addresses in multiple locations, or states at the same time - office, business and multiple residence addresses. The fact that this candidate made a contribution last year and used an address (business) other than his Meridian MS address does not establish a different residency. Bagley knows this as law, but I guess in this case he follows the old adage about 'when the law is not on your side' just argue.

I don't know Sherman and have no plans to vote for him. Or to vote for Bagley's chosen candidate, the trial lawyer from the coast and formerly of Jackson. But for Bagley to even think that this petition would hold up in court is laughable. Of course, the State Dems might rule in his favor because they routinely ignore the law as to who they qualify or disqualify. But if they try to kick him off the ballot, the courts would overturn such a politial move.

And, for what it's worth, the petition wasn't filed timely. But again, why let a minor little thing like another one of the state's statutes get in the way.

Sam, do you not suspect that someone could support a politician a year ago, get mad at them about some vote or action, and change their mind? Only thing that never changes his mind is an ass.

Oh never mind - forgot we were talking about the donkeycrats here

11:03 - Where does the Petition seek to disqualify the candidate from running for the Senate seat? Wouldn't the effect, if the Petition is granted, that the candidate wouldn't be in the Dem. primary, but would be listed on the ballot in the general election without a "D" by his name?

Surely the esteemed attorney (and his client, the esteemed coastal attorney candidate) bothered to look at the MS Election Code before he filed this petition. If not, suggest he check out 23-15-961 which states that challenging the qualifications of a candidate for a primary election must be filed within ten days of the qualifying deadline - in this case by March 11th. Not April 19th. Maybe Mr. Bagley is attempting to follow in the esteemed fellow members of the bar - Mitch Tyner and Chris McDaniel - as they attempted to claim that the election codes did not apply to them as to deadlines.

Also, Mr. Bagley should check more parts of the code that define what are the qualifictions for office (23-15-291), maybe check the 2003 AG opinion that states a party cannot enforce party loyalty rules. Even the MS Dem Party v Barbour federal ruling might be of interest to him before he hangs his reputation on this bogus petition.

Well, ok. "reputation of a lawyer" is something most would not be too concerned about.

Begley morons, not BAGLEY.

Maybe so, 1:36, but when acting as Baria's "Bagman", the spelling as Bagley is more appropriate.

Hey 11:03
Have you ever thought of proof reading your comment before posting?

Anonymous said...

Surely the esteemed commenter at 12:03 realizes this is a special election, with a qualifying deadline of April 24? Or perhaps the esteemed commenter thought that a resignation on Mar 6th would still demand a qualifying deadline of Mar 1? Or maybe, the esteemed commenter is just a moron who is too interested in bashing Begley to put his brain in gear before his mouth?

Anonymous said...

I also see that 11:03 made the same qualifying date error. What part of "special election" confuses you?

Anonymous said...

So, considering how many Democrats in this state do not live in the political district they represent, the question to be asked is which powerful Democrat, exactly, wanted Sam's last victim, Jim Evans, excised from the MS House?

Surely, SURELY, you realize that Sherman IS NOT running in the special.

... maybe, the esteemed commenter [@ 5:30 AM] is just a moron who ... put his brain in gear before his mouth?

Hey 5:30 & 5:35 (let's hope this is the same person posting uneducated comments) --- there are two Senate elections going on this year. One regular, with a filing deadline of March 1st. A second, a specoal election that will occur in November, with a filing deadline of April 24th.

The petition Mr Begley's petition deals with is the first - he is attempting to contest the candidaCy of Mr Sherman who is running in the Democrat primary to be held on June 6th.

The earlier posts about Begley filing his petition well after the deadone are correct. You, my friend, have shown your ignorance and inability to understand the election system. Next time at least finish your bowl of Cheerios before you try to explain to us what you don't know.

Bravo 10:45. Thanks for spelling it out to some.... Sheeeeeesh.

I did get my laugh for the day though.

This is why we have such an uninformed only takes a few minutes on Google search to do a little research ahead of these extremely important elections guys, but please, carry on.

All of you obvious Republican's aren't getting your facts straight. You keep quoting the MS Election Code. What you are not quoting is the Mississippi Democratic Party Constitution.

There are two points that you are clearly missing:

1) Under the By-law's of the MDPC: A candidate is not allowed to run under the Democratic Party Name who has either

a)who has participated in a primary of any other political party within the past twelve months by either voting or running for office in such primary: Which if you take that at it's word, he is a registered voter with the California Democratic Party and voted in California in the last 12 months (not of MS). Also, all of you that want to bag on people who have various addresses...that is not the point, he can have 200 addresses for all I care. What I have a problem with is that: He VOTES in California...never once in Mississippi!

b)who has within the preceding four years publicly or financially supported the election to office of any person not running as a Democrat. HE GAVE MONEY TO WICKER PEOPLE!!!!! PLAIN AND SIMPLE! A CLEAR VIOLATION OF THIS STATUTE! And also, don't any of you question WHY he would be running for the office that he gave money to the republican candidate for before? Smells fishy to he is just doing it to cause a mess in the primary and allow a Republican to slide in there!

2) You keep quoting 10 days after; that is for the State. No where in the MDPC under the Article for the Appeals Council does it list a date by which an appeal must be filed. So either way, it doesn't matter.

Simple breakdown from my LONG response above: this is between the democrats not the state election commission. The fact of the matter is, he can run fine, but by the letter of the law of the MS Dem's, he does not deserve to have a (D) after his name...let him run as an independent!!!

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.
