The Embezzlement Epidemic Spreads

The Embezzlement Epidemic is apparently not limited to homeowner's associations but has spread to other organizations as well.  WLBT reported some shenanigans apparently took place at the Flowood Chamber of Commerce:

Earlier this week former Executive Director Jennifer Anderson resigned from the position.
The Chamber says that after learning about concerns of possible internal accounting irregularities they reached out to law enforcement as well as the City of Flowood.

The case has since been turned over to Rankin County District Attorney’s Office. Flowood police say the handoff was done to avoid a conflict of interest. Rest of story.

The Street Committee told The Kingfish that Ms. Anderson did indeed resign.  She resigned after being given the choice to be fired or submit a letter of resignation.  The Chamber could not make payroll two weeks ago and she allegedly cleaned out the 401k's as well.   Hence, law enforcement is now involved in the investigation.

What was her background? Looks like the website has been scrubbed clean.

Rankin county residents don’t like it when people call them out for their misbehavior but they do indeed cause mischief. I wish the majority of these residents would learn to budget their own money, save, make their children behave, and stop acting like trash.

Thankfully, we have a very competent State Auditor and U.S. Attorney.

Far too many of Mississippi's "leaders" are trash, and think there's nothing wrong with stealing. Another widespread example is education....Why the State Auditor has not investigated the MS educational industrial complex yet is baffling....it's either incompetence, or he's in on the scam to cover for for all of them - just like Reverend Pickering did.

There are some Rankin hating folks on this site. Taking a gander at tags in any Rankin establishment shows a large amount of Hinds and Madison tags. Us back woods, redneck mouth breathers from Rankin would really enjoy a little less traffic and congestion on our roads so keep your hating selves west of the river.

When white people commit crimes they are always 10x worse than black people. But the whites always gets better treatment by police. See how these rich whites ain't never in prison jumpsuits. The get immediate bail. Never even taste the prison food.

You mean to tell me... A white woman... Was stealing?!?!?! WOW!!!!

I would like to hear how she managed to 'clean out the 401ks'. Those monies are not kept in a lock-box at the Chamber office.

Let me guess. She "receipted" cash, she "recorded" all transactions, and she "walked" the deposits to the bank. She "posted" the outgoing checks and possibly was in control of the payroll process also. The Board may have been presented information this employee wanted them to see, not the full picture. What could possibly go wrong if one individual is in charge of receipting, recording and custody of funds? I'm not saying that is the case but the control environment appears off if one employee can help themselves to such varied transactions. If the organization is small, your Board needs to be more actively involved in this process or other individuals need to be recruited to this process.

I dont know i think killing tax payying citizens is a worse crime. At least fu ds can be clawed back. Dead tax payers reduce future tax revenues.

“Economic development” is a scam to begin with. We gonna work on jobs...step 1 get the city/county/state to give us some money for it...step 2 put all your buddies on the board and their girlfriends on staff. Mission accomplished! Created jobs and got the money in the right place.

Burning Down the House

Watch out you might get what you're after
Boom babies strange but not a stranger
I'm an ordinary guy
Burning down the house
Hold tight wait till the party's over
Hold tight We're in for nasty weather
There has got to be a way
Burning down the house
Here's your ticket pack your bag
Time for jumpin' overboard
The transportation is here
Close enough but not too far
Maybe you know where you are
Fightin' fire with fire
All wet! Hey you might need a raincoat
Shakedown! Dreams walking in broad daylight
Three hun-dred six-ty five de-grees
Burning down the house
It was once upon a place sometimes I listen to myself
Gonna come in first place
People on their way to work and baby what did you except
Gonna burst…

If I have time I'll add up all the cream I mean money ripped off from HOA & employees! Good job State Auditor Shad White I tip my hat.

That's an impossible stretch, 7:05. How do you explain employees ability to review quarterly statements. Oh, but you'll suggest she just cleaned out all these accounts this week. Explain that process. I'll wait.

Were any of these taxpayer funds? Don't think so, so the auditor would not be involved.

If the said person is in charge of depositing the employer and employee contributions into the retirement accounts.....

Seminole Bingo
Warren Zevon







Written by Warren Zevon and Carl Hiaasen
C. 1995 Zevon Music BMI

I'm a junk bond king
And I'm on the run
Me and a friend of mine
We were headed for the sunshine

I got my hands on the wheel
I got gas in the tank
I got a suitcase full of money
From a Luxembourg bank

We didn't stop 'til we got to Big Cypress
Wandered in to the Legion Hall
The sign outside said "Seminole Bingo"
Fell in love with the ping pong balls

And the SEC is far behind
Down in the swamp with the gators and flamingos
A long way from Liechtenstein
I'm a junk bond king playing Seminole Bingo

And my Wall Street wiles
Don't help me even slightly
'Cause I never have the numbers
And I'm losing nightly






I cashed in the last of my Triple be bonds
Bought a double-wide on the Tamiami Trail
I parked it right outside the reservation
Fifteen minutes from the Collier County Jail

And the SEC is far behind
Down in the swamp with the gators and flamingos
A long way from Liechtenstein
I'm a junk bond king playing Seminole Bingo

Well, the SEC is far behind
Down in the swamp with the gators and flamingos
A long way from Liechtenstein
I'm a junk bond king playing Seminole Bingo

You know how to tell if a car is from Rankin County? All four fenders are never the same color.

Kingfish, normally Chamber employees are private, not public employees and therefore are not covered under PERS. The State Auditor will not be involved.

Kingfish said...

I never said otherwise.

This gal, the swimming coach and the lady CPA could have played their cards well and gotten a sugar daddy and he would have gotten them a place at the Barrington....but looks like they didn’t, looks like the barrington lost money with RL and I’m still trying to find the discreet entrance at The Barrington. Hell, I have to keep my SB at the Links in Canton. But she looks way better than these gals. Just a chance.....I may have room for one more since the economy is good.

Kingfish: You obviously have no practical experience with or knowledge of how an employer's 401(k) program works...particularly regarding payroll deduction, account servicing, monetary transfers, withdrawals and investment account holders.

Nobody at an employer's place of business can 'clean out a company 401(k).

One of Feel Brant's prior commercials braggingly claimed "I wunst had a 401K!" Check with him.

Kingfish said...

I know. I wrote "street committee" for a reason.

I suspect what we will hear is contributions or something along those lines were messed with. I've had 401k's also and you're right. It would be near impossible for an employer to raid them.

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. 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.
