Psssht. Monica, is that you? You can't stay your ass out of jail long enough to finish your degree at state. You're on the jail website every few weeks for acting trashy and catching drug cases. You're forever up in the bars with some skeezy looking old ass men buying your drinks, looking like cat woman in pleather outfits showcasing that rancid camel toe. Ick.
Couldn't have said it better myself! I had a class with her a few semesters back. She did miss a lot of class and one day she did roll in wearing a pleather cat suit, giant heels and big hoop earrings. I felt like I was on a NYC subway car in 1988!!

Looks like you have equal time to waste. After all, aren't YOU all up on Topix commenting, too? She'll have her day in court, but the public reserves the right to make their judgement as well. Multifest is partially funded with county money. Our money. Tax money that the less than righteous miss Starks has been outright stealing for three years that we know of. So eat a dick, kid. We will judge who we please.

Pure white trash. The "Multi" Fest was started because there wasn't enough black music fo the bruthas n sistas. Even though such greats as the Commodores and Earth Wind and Fire performed there. Take what money is left and donate it to charity. The time has come to end this clown show.

while debbie was stealing money from the festival, the tax payers of the state and country, both she and steve were begging for more "donations to their cause", and shamelessly so. Here is steve trying to play the race card to get more money from the county back in may:

Kanawha Commission gives MultiFest funding
by Paul Fallon
Daily Mail Staff
Charleston Daily Mail

CHARLESTON, W.Va.-- The Kanawha County Commission voted unanimously to allocate $11,500 to a local festival despite some misgivings by one commissioner.

Steve Starks, cofounder and president of MultiFest, attended the commission meeting asking for the funds. Starks said the festival requested about $13,000 from the Central West Virginia Convention and Visitors Bureau, but was only granted about $1,500.

Starks said the bureau's board cited the fact that the festival received state money as well as a contribution from the city as the reason for cutting the funding request.

Starks said he had sat in the bureau's meeting and saw other organizations receive funding without question. But, MultiFest representatives were asked to justify their funding request.

Starks also said that MultiFest has proven that it is a successful festival every year and that it is well attended.

"It was kind of like Jim Crow," he said.

Commission President Kent Carper disagreed, saying the Convention and Visitors Bureau board didn't treat MultiFest any differently than other organizations. He said the city of Charleston's Rod Run and Doo Wop was also asked to justify its expenditures when representatives came to the Convention and Visitors Bureau to seek money.
