Fortunately she didn't waterboard anyone.

And y’all keep saying Rankin folks are better than Hinds folks. Just a different color, that’s all.

That money could buy her a lot of twinkies and ding dongs.

The band boosters must raise a lot of money if she was able to embezzle $25,000.

Money is the root of all evil. Greed will get you. Thou shalt not covet your neighbor's Band Booster Bucks.

Hate she did this. Jail food should keep her alive though, but the bedrooms and exercise yard can be grim. Maybe she will get her cosmetology license while locked away. Wives of LA might be her favorite TV show, but whether she gets to watch it will be the Boss Bi--h's decision Oh well, good luck sister. Hopefully you won't get a prison Tat on that unblemished face

All the bad press on Brandon and Rakin County is not the Brandon I grew up in. I'm over all of this, I'm moving to South Jackson.

I would agree she was raised in a sweet Christian home by good parents. So sad.

I used to live in south Jackson. Moved out because of the crime. Moved to Rankin County. Now I am worried about the crime here. Can't call the sheriff because they are worse than the criminals.

People are the same all-over. But, in Rankin County they get caught and put-away.

Close down the Internet for today. We have a winner.

Did she steal $25K in actual dollars or $25K worth band fund-raising candy? If the latter, even if she just ate a box of chocolate bars a day, she'd have hit that mark in a month or so...

On a related note, you'd think for the price per bar, it would at least be decent chocolate.

If nothing else she ate up the profits.

You should call the DA and get an update on this! And repost an accurate update.

Well, the same poster has come on her seven times calling this all fake, using the same language. None of the posts bother to state why the opening report is inaccurate or what the accurate truth IS.

Mississippi is mostly last or near the bottom in many categories, but at the top as the Embezzlement State.

I read that JSU even offers a degree in the embezzlement trade, also called political science.

Kingfish said...

All I did was post the indictment filed in the clerk's office. The $45,000 number came from the Rankin County Sheriff's press release when she was arrested. So if someone has a problem, take it up with the Sheriff or D.A.

The truth will set you free soon. Will you be ready to eat your crow then and issue the facts? Stay tuned…

Nice try at baiting here. Ain’t nobody taking this bait except the Internet trolls!!

@3:33 I highly doubt kingfish fires himself from his own blog, but you seem like the expert here. If you disagree with what’s posted, what’s keeping you from telling the truth?

Steal 45k from a school in Rankin and get sent up the river. Steal 350 k from a businessman in Rankin and go free.

She didn't steal any money. She simply pocketed enough, over time, and took it home for safe-keeping and eventually that stash added up to $25,000 - But it wasn't stealing since she intended one day to return it. That's been the claim of every embezzler in history.

It was late and I didn't have time to get to the bank and flat forgot that money was in my console.

I am still trying to figure out how someone could lose their job over posting this article. The firing of the self employed is not something that is easily achieved.

Easy access to the smell and feel of cash money that is not one's own, temporarily not missed, becomes a repeated pleasure, then a "necessity" to pay for extravances like drugs, gambling, travel real estate, boat, or designer clothing. Shad White should help legislature with techniques in non┼║profits and bureaucracy to self guard against graft, such as two or three signatures on checks, immediate third party oversight on cash receipts and deposits, etc.

Donna must have sobered up this morning, no most posts about the real truth coming out. Delusions of grandeur must be common with the name Donna. Donna Floyd, Donner Kay.

The chirper, who over and over claims it's all a lie, can't stop chirping long enough to report what happened to the missing money.

Any idea what she spent it on? Was she a whale at the Vicksburg casinos? (No pun intended.)

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.
