Mayor Files No Campaign Finance Reports

Correction: Patty Patterson submitted her campaign finance report yesterday. 

Jackson Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba did not file a campaign finance report this year or last year.  However, the Mayor was not alone in blowing off campaign finance laws, as only one Jackson Mayoral candidate, Ken Wilson, submitted a campaign finance report. 

JJ submitted a public records request for the campaign finance reports filed since January 1, 2020 for Ken Wilson, Mayor Lumumba, Patty Patterson, and Charlotte Reeves.  The Municipal Clerk's office provided this answer: 

The City received a public information request from you on 3/30/2021. 
 
You requested: Other - Copy of all campaign finance reports filed in 2021 and 2020 for Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba, Ken Wilson, Patty Patterson, Charlotte Reeves


The City has reviewed its files and has determined there are no responsive documents to your request.  

This could be due to: No campaign finance reports have been received for the following:

 Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba, Patty Patterson and Charlotte Reeves

If you have any questions or need additional information, please feel free to contact the Municipal Clerk Department at (601) 960-1035.

Thank You 

 Mr. Wilson's report is posted below.

Lumumba acts with disregard and impunity. He'll never get help for Jackson from the Legislature who will not reward double-dealing slime balls.

Now wait a minute. Isn't there an exception in the law that exempts Marxists from filing these reports?

Jimmy B said...

And not a damn thing will be done about it. I will bet money that he will not be held accountable.

And the people of Jackson let this idiot have another term in office.

Donner, so much for all your talk about holding elected officials accountable.

You've been barfing up the same "deep, challenging reporting on anyone" garbage for how long now?

Donna Ladd is a fraud and a lazy reporter.

Perhaps he was armed with the wrong information on the filing deadline.

The only way Lumumba will influence the Legislature is to play the race card, a tactic he's well familiar with. Basically, his line is that the Legislature is mostly white and they don't want to help out a black mayor of a black city.

The real reason is that the Legislature doesn't trust the Lumumba administration to be accountable for the millions he would request. I think we all realize that. So in order to provide it, they will demand someone oversee the city leadership.

Regardless, the pushback will be (according to Antar) purely motivated by race.

Wonder who's account that 60ml Siemens settlement is sitting in. Capital city news agencies certainly aren't asking.

Why would Antard disclose all the ill-gotten campaign funds that will convert to his retirement funds when there’s no penalty for not doing so? Obviously the voters don’t care.

Does this surprise anyone?

It appears there is only a $50 a day penalty for not filing a campaign finance report on time (beginning 10 days after the due date). The mayor ignores much more significant requirements than those set by the Mississippi Ethics Commission.

Sometime I think the Mayor looks at everything lets say differently. Like he is a contestant on Shark Tank and the sharks are the state government.

He walks into the tank and ask for a Zillion dollars based on his idea of how to make Jackson better. He explains the needs and how it will improve everything in Jackson. Goes into great detail how all the citizens will enjoy the new subway system, the new water lines, the rapid rail line to the airport, the new underground utilities, free internet and cable for all of Jackson. Lets not forget the massive new 100 acre community garden for free food (something gonna hav ta go).

The sharks (gov) are impressed however when they challenge him on his ability to work with others to make it happen, the timeline, quality of contractors he folds.Ideas no solutions. As they say in Texas all hat no land.

Brandon, MS. Alderman at Large race candidate Eric Fox put zero dollars down on his financial report even though he has signs up, paid for Facebook ads, did 2 mailers, has some weird campaign wrap on an RV....did I miss anything?

Normally one of the local media outlets will post the CFR's. However, none did so this year.

JFP and Barksdale Today only examine and report on the finance reports of white Republicans.

You would think with all of the local "attorneys" (and I use that term loosely) that contribute to his campaign and always comment and like stuff involving him on Facebook, you would think they would look at stuff like this and advise him on what to do. He looks like the other crazy democrat lady who refuses to file hers. Lumumba, like Vicki Slater, no one respects or takes seriously.

"And the people of Jackson let this idiot have another term in office." Is this actually a surprise to you?

Anonymous said...

It's really fun to see who has donated to whom. Can't wait to see the fools that donated to the LaMumba campaign.

Why should this little fellow concern himself with rules and regulations ?

I laughed when he exited his election night bunker.

The lil' man was doing "fist pumps" and babbling something about his record of transparency and dignity for the people.

??

But whatever the citizens of Jackson want . . .

Can't let it be know Soros has bought this useful idiot.....

Kingfish said...

THere wasn't one filed last year either. $50 per day.....

Ken Wilson was the right guy for the job. It doesn’t surprise me one but he was the only one to release the requested documents. His heart is in the right place, and that is what Jackson really needs. It’s a shame these uneducated clowns don’t care about their city. I can’t wait to get out of this third world circus.

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.

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.
