Rednecks Gonna Redneck

It appears Bad Boy Democrat Jamie Franks got into some trouble.   The former Mississippi Leftenent Governor candidate, Democratic Party Chairman, and former State Representative got himself arrested Tuesday morning.  The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reported:


The chairman of the Lee County Democratic Party was arrested early Tuesday morning at his house and charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

According to Lee County Sheriff Jim Johnson, deputies were dispatched to the County Road 1310 Mooreville residence of James “Jamie” Franks, 47, at 1:16 a.m. Jan, 14. The teen male who called 911 said three adults had been drinking and he was afraid what was going to happen.
“Deputies made contact with the (woman and two men) and it was clear that all three were heavily intoxicated,” Johnson said. While deputies were talking with the three, the two men got into a verbal altercation and refused orders to calm down.
Johnson said Franks got in the face of a deputy, began cursing and chest bumped the deputy. While attempting to gain control of Franks, a deputy was injured. (KF: It is not known if Mr. Franks said "Do you know who I am?")... Rest of article.  
Then there is the matter of that picture from the Jim Hood fund-raiser at a local restaurant shortly before the November election.

Franks is not the only political celebrity who got in trouble with the law this week.  Former Ocean Springs Mayor Connie Moran got in some trouble herself this week:

Former Ocean Springs mayor Connie Moran was found laying in the street near her Washington Avenue home late Monday night, intoxicated and unable to stand.

After refusing medical treatment, Moran was taken into custody, charged with public drunk.

According to the police incident report obtained by The Mississippi Press, Ocean Springs patrolman Howard Rhodes was southbound on Washington Avenue at about 11:48 p.m. when he spotted “a white female laying on her back in the southbound lane. I got out to check on the female, later identified as Connie Moran, and observed she was intoxicated and unable to stand.” Rest of article.

Then there is this little pic taken at a Jim Hood fundraiser a week or two before the November election.

Love how the Daily Journal article leaves out the fact that the third party involved, and with who Franks was in an argument with before deputies arrived was Lee County Judge James Moore. Hmmm. Wonder why they left that out? In any event, good title for this article Kingfish, rednecks are gonna be rednecks no matter who they are . . .

Moran has been a chronic drunk for a long time. Several years back, she nudged and old man crossing the street with her car and knocked him down. She barricaded herself in a hotel room while she dried out.

Moran is also supremely arrogant. Since she responded that she wasn’t drunk and called out the officers, I hope toxicology reports and body cam videos are released. Her arrogance has ruffled lots of feathers. That’s why she got beat by an absolute nobody. Didn’t matter who was running, she was going to lose. Just a smug, arrogant woman propped up by family money.

"Chest bumped the deputy" That's hilarious.

And I want to see that pic from the Hood fundraiser, Kingfish. I bet I'm not the only one!

I hope if there were teenagers or young adults in this home that they are offered free counseling so they know they can choose another path in life. There was a lady in the Delta known as “All Night Long Louise who was found laying in the middle of HWY 82 drunk as a skunk on several nights. Lucky these women had motorist with good eyesight and not impaired so they weren’t run over! Shame on all of you!

No big deal.
Former Natchez Mayor/MDOT Executive Director Larry L."Butch" Brown appeared to stay drunk.

That was no big deal in Natchez, but it didn't fly in a statewide position.

Taking a long nap on a Beau Rivage slot machine was Butch's downfall.

But at least that wasn't as dangerous as getting some shut eye in the southbound lane of Washington Avenue in Ocean Springs.

But that’s nothing compared to republican Mr Family Values almost killing others while smashing his Jeep having fallen asleep after screwing the hell out of his girlfriend in Memphis and dodging his security detail.

He valued families alright....someone else’s family.

You're so right.

I've been laughing at that all day.

Now that’s funny! I love it when I’m enjoying a good story with hilarious comments to follow and the grammar police kick the door open. Stop being ridiculous and get over yourself.

Thank You China Lee (WLBT) for using the proper word, lying, not laying.

Moran has now said she was searching for her dog, slipped and fell in the roadway, bumping her arm and head against the concrete - That's why she was laying eggs in the road. She also said she's glad the officer showed up but he should have just walked her back up to her house instead of noting that she was shitfaced on her back on a public roadway, staring at the moon. Now that we have that cleared up.

When you are using the present tense, you lay something down, but you yourself lie down. So: I will lay my bottle down on the street before I lie down on the street. You might hear of someone laying himself down upon the street to sleep. But note that when you put something down, including yourself, you lay it down. You don't lay down unless you lay yourself down. If you are merely lying down you are not laying yourself down. The confusion might be because the past tense of "to lie" and "to lay" is "laid. I laid upon the street to get some rest, and I laid my glass of wine next to me. One lays things or persons down but one never lays down, unless he is using a rather artistic expression of laying himself down. E.g. "Now I lay me down to sleep. . . . " So a person is never laying in a street but only lying in the street, along with the bottle of wine that had been laid against him, unless the bottle was seen only to be lying against him.

Okay, I is confused...

So, did quaffing a couple of boxes of cheap white wine "lay" the mayor out like a mackerel, or did she "lie" about it?

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.
