Hood’s Campaign: “Protecting Mississippi Families”

No, this is not a joke.  Jim Hood is running for reelection with the tagline “Protecting Mississippi Families.”

The obvious question is “Whose family is he protecting?”

Dickie Scruggs, Steve Patterson, and former Special Assistant Attorneys General Joey Langston and Tim Balducci

Remember what he told the Clarion Ledger?

State Attorney General Jim Hood said today it would be a conflict of interest for his office to file charges against several attorneys involved in a high-profile judicial bribery scandal.

Filing a state case now could interfere with a federal case that is already in the courts, Hood told The Clarion-Ledger at an editorial board meeting.

“I’m too close to them,” he said. “It would be like prosecuting my relatives.

Jim Hood…protecting Mississippi families.

Fortunately, the feds were protecting laws.

Leniency was key to 24-month prison sentences Friday for judicial bribery co-defendants Timothy Balducci and Steven Patterson.

It was Senior U.S. District Judge Neal Biggers Jr.’s first “slack” shown in the federal case, which has scandalized the legal profession and public, and brought down one of America’s best-known attorneys, Richard “Dickie” Scruggs of Oxford.

The two men, who lived and worked together in New Albany when they were indicted Nov. 28, 2007, were the last co-defendants of the conspiracy known as Scruggs I. They, Scruggs, his lawyer son Zach and a law partner pleaded guilty to varying levels of crime associated with the attempted bribery of Circuit Judge Henry Lackey of Calhoun City in the spring of 2007.

Besides his first ad with the minivan we would say this is the best ad we have seen from Billy.

Even though it’s almost all still pictures and we usually hate these kinds of ads.

The message brings this one through.

Phony “Log Cabin Republican” Endorsement letter floating around in Mississippi

***UPDATE*** This letter is absolutely fake

This was just emailed in and it looks bogus.  I doubt the Log Cabin Republicans are getting involved in the Mississippi Republican Primaries. Smells like someone is up to some dirty tricks.  The letter is not mentioned on their website: LOG CABIN REPUBLICANS

And the signature and the name of the executive director do not match.

We don’t appreciate this kind of dirty, nasty, underhanded politics so we are here to call this out, that’s why blogging can be a force for good.  If this letter is in fact fake and if anyone else received this please let us know.

In what appears to be the final installment of the wildly popular Delbert Hosemann for Secretary of State ad campaign the Dorthy finally get’s Mississippi Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann’s name right, and the crowd goes wild.

Actually Hosemann looks surprised and he plays his part well.

We were surprised

The whole series of ads have been great and memorable

A+ for bringing the series to a close in style

The DuPree campaign for Governor is up with a couple :15 spots running as bookends.

Never been a huge fan of that strategy (it seems like :30 is usually rushing it) but the ads are pretty good.

“Color”
