Jeff Davis prepares for runoff
By SUSAN LAKES

PRENTISS - It's back to the polls again on Nov. 27 for some Jefferson Davis County voters.

The circuit's clerk office is gearing up for a runoff election between Jamie H. Verdun and Linda A Speights.

Neither of the District 1 election commission candidates captured the required majority to come out victorious in Tuesday's general election.

Speights led Verdun, the incumbent, 493 votes to 381 votes. William Carter received 279 votes.

Only District 1 voters will cast ballots in the runoff, according to Sherry Fitzhugh, deputy clerk.

While the election commissioner runoff is scheduled, the special election to determine who will take over for Circuit Clerk Jeri Landry has not been set. Landry is retiring in December.

Voters were primed to pick their new clerk in the general election, but a special Democratic Party primary was ordered due to voting irregularities in the Aug. 7 primary, including purported votes by a man who had been dead for more than a year and another by a man who was in the hospital on election day.

Natchez Judge Forrest A. Johnson, appointed by the Mississippi Supreme Court, found at least 26 voting irregularities in the primary. He ordered the county to hold a special election.

Clerk candidates include Nadine Thompson, Clint Langley, Deandera Clavo and Ronnie Barnes.

Tuesday's turnout for the general election topped the 46 percent mark, according to Fitzhugh. Fitzhugh said the county's typical voter turnout typically falls under 40 percent.

The county has an estimated 11,000 registered voters.

Election day went smoothly.

"This was a very good year as far as problems," the deputy clerk said. "We didn't have people calling with problems, but they were calling to ask where they go to vote."

A post-voting glitch caused a delay in getting the ballots tallied and certifying the results. The results were not certified until Thursday.

"The (election) commissioners and the technician had to manually enter all the numbers for all the races into the computer this time," Fitzhugh said. "We've never had to do that before. Usually, just the affidavits and the absentee ballots have to be entered manually, but this time, all of them had to be."

Bert Wallace, an investigator with the state attorney general's Public Integrity Division, monitored Tuesday's election. He reported no significant election day problems.

This is really a five-paragraph story, in my opinion, about the Beat One commissioner's race. It is *so* typically news media-ish to keep the racial stew pot simmering by mixing ingredients from two different stories, the commissioner's race AND the clerk's race.

It just makes you feel like you need another shower, doesn't it? These news media-types, so-called "reporters" -- like this Susan Lakes -- use their position to lament and write with one hand about racial tension while they write with the other hand stories like this that contribute to it. It's quite a trick, and all in the name of "informing the public" while generating advertising revenue.

"Oh, look! Racial tension and election problems in JDC ... and there's a sale at Penney's!!!"

Well, bless her heart........
Starts the story with one topic and recaps another as its ending. Maybe she was trying to meet a deadline.

I wish she would devote her time to doing an investigative story on what's going on in the unsolved murder of Betty Hudson and report THAT! Inquiring minds really WANT TO KNOW.

Susan, if ya don't try girl, you don't have a hair on your a..ah...AhHHHHHH..CHOOOOOOO! excuse me.

Maybe she was, but I think you're giving her too much credit.

If these media types only did this sort of thing once every few years, I could think differently about them. But as often as they churn out these kinds of stories, it has made me come to think over the years that media types are just rotten and evil in their core.

Of course, if we post enough like this about her, she'll make *this* the story. I can see it already:

After I read the news below it made me want to know why Nadine Thompson never had charges brought up on her for her election fraud.

SOWERS GUILTY ON TEN VOTER FRAUD COUNTS

After two days of testimony and an hour of deliberation, a Tunica County jury returned a guilty verdict in the case against community activist Lessadolla Sowers.
Sowers was convicted of 10 counts of voter fraud and was sentenced to five years for each count. Circuit Court Judge Charles Webster ordered Sowers to serve her terms concurrently with no possibility of parole. She was also ordered to pay restitution and court costs.
The verdict came after the state presented evidence that Sowers committed voter fraud in the weeks leading up to the democratic primary in 2007.
In his opening remarks, prosecutor Bill Gresham said 31 absentee ballots were seized by the Mississipi Bureau of Investigation in 2007 after allegations of misconduct. Those 31 ballots led to 31 counts of voter fraud in the initial indictment against Sowers. During court proceedings, 21 counts were dropped for various reasons and 10 remained.
