Election Night Thread

 It's Election Night!!!  Will Lumumba reach 85%?  Will Butch beat Bo?  What will the dispatch from Pelahatchie be? Are there any races in anything that are actually interesting tonight?  Does anyone actually care? Prediction: Hizzoner in Jackson gets at least 75% of the vote.  This is the election night thread.  Fire away.

Massive turnout in Brandon since the last cycle. My opinion that favors Bo.

It is frightening that a lying incompetent mayor could be re-elected with 75% of the vote.

Maybe the nutjob in Pelahatchie will run against "lying Lumumba" next time.

Chokwe Antionette: "Let them drink water."

Anonymous said...

In 2017, Chokwe got 55% of the vote in a crowed field of nine. He got ten times the vote of that disaster Yarber (18,803 vs. 1,843) who finished in fourth behind Graham and Horne. If you live in Jackson and bitch, you should of voted in the Dem Primary because that's when the Mayor gets elected. Pretty sad state of affairs that only three ran this time. The sheep will vote Chokwe in for a second non-productive term. My bet - 65%

No good news for Jackson. Clinton's Mayor loses control of his board to a senile couple aka Ricky Martin. Nothing changes in Ridgeland. Are there any other races even contested?

Chokwe wins.

He gets 2 billion straight from Joe Biden.

Bypasses tate greeves

Jackson moves forward with infrastructure plans and a bright future.

Eric “Uncle Eddie “ Fox for the sweep in Brandon!

Hopefully Bo in Brandon... Jackson well does it really matter? Too bad no one ran against Jake in Pearl, hope to unseat the Alderman at large in Pearl...

Chokwe can’t be defeated, not in Jackson, Mississippi.

YES 7:13 is right! He’s dead on the money. Chokwe gets Jackson $2B and miraculously Jackson becomes a Mecca for financial success. Clean running water for all and no more wastewater issues. Crime rate drops lower than Madison and jobs galore. Good paying jobs for the students graduating the revamped JPS system. Money is the panacea to transform Jackson and set it on a bright future. It will happen!

Antar fails to make the runoff. He is finished.

KF, can you do a ward-by-ward analysis of the vote. It would be interesting to see how Lumumba does in Stokes's ward versus the other wards.

Anonymous said...

Stokes cannot get anything from Antar. He thinks he can win without Stokes. He fails to get south Jackson...he loses.

700 - interesting Clinton prediction. How'd it work out?

Ricky lost big - how did her candidates do?

One month ago residents of the city had no water and houses smelled like raw boo boo. Tonight the man in charge of that fiasco gets re-elected easily.

Only in Jackson.

To run for mayor of Jackson you must have something else on your mind. Otherwise it just ain't worth it. No politician will solve Jackson's problems.

@9:38PM

I been saying it. Anyone expecting a politician to solve the issues which plague the city is completely delusional. Politicians lie. Voters elect and re-elect politicians on those same lies, not to mention there were/are no candidates whom pose much of a challenge to Lumumba. I’m telling you the God honest truth.

A vote for Chokwe Boo Boo is a vote for the future, or lack thereof, of the bold new city. Smells like Boo Boo, and it's all because of systemic capitalism from a long, long time ago.

When Stokes is ringing the truth, it's time for somebody to turn the lights out on their way out of Jackson.

Boo Boo. Raw Boo Boo.

fed up in Jackson said...

pitiful voter turnout in Jackson. Pitiful that people don't understand that this primary could have ousted Lyin' Lumumba. Pitiful that we don't have any viable options to vote for

Anonymous said...

Here is a test. If it walks and smells like raw Boo Boo, and it talks and looks like raw Boo Boo, then which is it: (a) Jackson's failing infrastructure problem; (b) Jackson's mayor making excuses for it; or (c) both.

Hinds County getting $46MM CARES ACT MONEY. WHAT TIMING.... talk about "betting on the come.."

I voted today for the Honorable Mayor Lumumba. He is our only hope to continue Jackson's downward spiral to a solid third world city; a city that Caracas, Venezuela would be proud to call a sister-city; a city with the highest per capita murder rate in the U.S.; a city where MLK Jr. is ashamed to have a street named after him.

Thank you Jackson voters for supporting the economic growth of the cities surrounding your rapidly declining municipality. Your kid emperor wears no clothes and the only thing certain is there will be far fewer of y'all left in 2025 holding the bag and ignorantly pretending otherwise. We welcome your economic immigrants (and their tax dollars) where they can live without the continual fear of violent crime and send their children to good schools. Yes, the metro (and Mississippi) will do just fine as you pursue the destructive path your ideologue has your city chasing. Good luck, but we all know you don't need it.

VICTORY PARTY AT THE MURDER BAR!!!!

Only 19,000 people voted. I think that says it all....

Canton quiet as a church mouse pissing into a cotton ball. City Hall parking lot packed last night. Wonder who they decide will win, you know, for the "voters" sake..

Anonymous said...

The alternatives to LL in the primary were even worse. Same for the general.
Better to stick with the devil we know in this case.

Anonymous said...

@6:51 IMO a low voter turnout is equal to widespread silent support for the incumbent.

Anonymous said...

9:12, that’s why you shouldn’t drink on election date. Ricky Garrett and every candidate who supported her won big. Everybody the mayor supported lost.

Anonymous said...

I hope Biden does give Jackson some money and they can somehow entice their "shoppers" to do business there once more. They have basically over run some of the nice areas around their fair ghetto. I'm sure some merchants and sales tax collectors in Madison and Rankin like them but.....

Anonymous said...

I guess Lyin' "Boo Boo" Lumumba will claim that he has a mandate from the people as he won by a landslide. Too bad there was no real challenger to this fellow. Oh Well.

"Meet the new boss, same as the old boss."

Sugar Ditch said...

Lu-Boo-Boo remains mayor of Sugar Ditch.

The determinant is that he doesn't support requiring people to work. Nothing else matters. Raw boo boo ain't that bad. Ima get me some hussel and buy bottle water anyways.

Maybe Bo Luckey will look for ways to earn political chops and gain experience so voters have more confidence he should be handed the keys.

Eric Baldwin. One. Hundred. Two. Votes. C'mon man! Obviously his terrible reputation precedes him.

Cbalducc said...

How can you claim a mandate if voter turnout is so low?

Anonymous said...

Democrats claim it all day long knowing the press will never look into the actual details nor ask the same question you are asking.

Let me guess, you believe in the Tooth Fairy, Easter Bunny and Epstein didn't kill himself (not that it matters to me)..... I just want to know who is going to be Epstein in Welcome Back Kotter remake!

" I'm sure some merchants and sales tax collectors in Madison and Rankin like them but....."

Gawd yes.

Why do think there's a Costco across the border ?

Plus ... if a Jacksonian should act "ignorant or show out" in that County, it's almost a guaranteed
week long vacation in the Madison County Detention Center ... before friends and family can raise bail money.

The Madison County Detention Center is not a pleasant place to visit, (mush less having to spend a few nights).

No automatic blessings or "catch and release" in Madison County !

But back to the topic.

If Jacksonians want Antar, good for them.

They get what they elect.

Sad that no more voted than did!

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.

Trollfest '07

Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. 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. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
