Nothing was said about a website you idiot!!! This info was taken from the SAME NEWSPAPER that printed BOTH candidates contributions and expenditures!

You are so so right. The J.P.s allocate the money. But only that. The judge can spend it how he wants. You ask how I know this. I was a J.P. in the passed.

Correct. JPs allocate the funds but the judge decides where to spend it,(i.e., which company to purchase it from).

Try again genius.

You are soooo full of crap!! If Lincoln paid a janitor at the newspaper $20 to cut his grass, Horton would be crawling around in the gutter taking pictures of the whole thing.
By the way, 4 days and counting since the report was published, and Horton STILL hasn't said a word about the money he got from Haynie. Where's the transparency, Nick?
Your right. Any time NBC reports a story that involves GE, the reporter discloses that he is paid by GE. Its only fair to give this information to the public on the front end. Of course not many would accuse Horton of having integrity.

Yes it is funny. Funny that this person who's making the most noise about Nick Horton and transparency is squawking about THE SAME THING LINCOLN'S DONE!

Anyone wanna take bets on whether Horton discloses his little payday between now and election day? My money says no.

Yet they don't disclose that the GE CEO is in Obama's inner circle or that GE pays ZERO corporate taxes.

NBC is the perfect example of transparency. Not.

No but I guarantee he has 1 or 2 more Lincoln hatchet jobs up his sleeve, he hasn't quite earned his paycheck yet.

I think you're absolutely right! He said that Parish was commenting on his blog yesterday...I'm told parish doesn't even know how to use a computer. Wouldn't be surprised if Horton was writing as Parish!

When are you retards going to figure out that he doesn't have to answer to ANYBODY!!! Lol hes not a city/government employee and i promise he could give two turds what you people think about his little free blog that has HIS opinions and freedom of speech all in it. Quit being so obsessed with his every move, he's not gonna quit what he does because a few Backdoor Rednecks don't like what he has to say. Know what? Don't. Like it? Don't read it!

Yea, he's only presenting himself as an honest broker of "unbiased facts" while getting paid by one of the candidates in the race he's "covering." Move along folks. Nothing to see here.

Hate to burst your bubble, wow, but some of us ignorant "rednecks" still care about integrity and honesty. When you present yourself as the "county's leading source for unbiased news and information" (Yes, he DOES call himself that!) shouldn't you hold yourself to the same standard as any legitimate news organization? And when you present yourself as the people's champion of transparency and honesty, you look stupid when you get caught with your hand in the cookie jar.

But yeah your right when you say,

Horton has no rules. Idiot redneck :) He's a nobody by political standards. Therefore he doesnt have a boss. Get it? No offense to nick, but hes not some paid official and broke some rules. Hes just a outspoken citizen who writes a freebie blog. He doesn't have to answer to anybody and that includes you. Yall seem to forget that, but yall wanna keep pushing it like its a big deal and its not. He didnt do anything wrong that trash talking on here is gonna fix, now is it??? Nope. Try not to cry to hard into your pillow at night my dear, but your bogus finger pointing gets you nowhere!! And your opinion doesn't matter!! Lol NOW above poster does have a valid point.......why are yall pointing fingers at nick when libcoln got a donation from a guy he bought gravel from to work on the county??? Conflict??? Absolutely!!! Yall wont say anything about that huh? I'm not losing sleep over it because me bitching doesn't get me anywhere. I am bored with you now because i can preach it till I'm blue in the face and your uneducated butt still couldn't sink it in.

Where's the integrity and honesty with the incumbent? Don't the same rules apply?? No, that's right, it's Judge Lincoln's county, his employees, his rules! LMAO! What a joke.

I finally got around to watching the Lincoln Douglas debate, er, I mean Lincoln Haynie. In my opinion Lincoln won the debate but I'm voting for Haynie simply because the County Judge's office shouldn't be a career. Time for a change.(Also, why are y'all trying to make this a race between Horton and Jenkins?)

I didn't even know who Nic Horton was until I read the bashing on Topix and got curious. I went to his web-site and read his blog. Didn't change my vote because I don't vote based on other's opinions. These forums are only driving people to read his stuff. Stop giving him the attention and he'll go away. He's not a real journalist, so saying he has this conflict of interest is only making him seem more important than he really is!

That is exactly right. He is not a real journalist. He's a paid employee of Bill Haynie's election campaign. HUGE difference.
